Mow Properly

1. MOW PROPERLY

To reduce lawn stress and help conserve moisture, cut off only about 1/3 of grass height. Not sure of the proper height? Set your mower to one of the highest settings.
Water Just Enough

2. WATER JUST ENOUGH

Since your lawn needs about 2.5 cm (1 in) of water every week, measure rainfall with a rain gauge, then make up the difference by watering with a sprinkler. Saves water – and watering time.
Aerate as Needed

3. AERATE AS NEEDED

Heavy foot traffic, poor drainage, and thatch buildup can cause soil compaction – and that’s not good for your lawn. So, every 1 to 3 years, depending on the health of your lawn, aerate it by removing plugs of soil. Aeration loosens things up, making it easier for grass plants to get the air, water, and nutrients they need.
