The aim of good maintenance is to keep the grass growing slowly,
while remaining healthy and attractive.
Proper maintenance makes the difference between a good and a poor lawn.
It does not correct faulty establishment, but poor maintenance results in a poor
lawn regardless of how much care has been taken in the
establishment of the lawn.
A good lawn requires attention to proper mowing, feeding, watering and other management practices such as weeding, disease prevention and pest control.
Important Mowing Tip
Due to the aggressive growth habit of a newly installed lawn, special attention must be made to regular mowings (rule of thumb is never remove more than 1/3 of the total grass height at time of mowing).
*Note 1: A 2" mowing height should not be allowed to grow taller than 3" at a time of mowing.
*Note 2: This rule of mowing also applies to newly installed lawns and will usually require a mow within the first week and sometimes subsequent mowings every 4 to 5 days during the first month after installation.
