Tips on choosing a professional
lawn care service
March and April: Rake up leaves and debris in
Sharpen mower blade.
May: Apply broadleaf herbicide.
Water correctly: Soak lawn 6 to 8 inches
deep...sandy soils take 30 minutes. For clay
soils, it could take a couple of hours. If
you plan to kill off your lawn, August is a good
time to do it.
Mulch leafs on lawn with mower.
Aerate soil – getting air down to the roots.
Apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent growth of
annual bluegrass and chickweed.
Maintain your mower – drain the oil and gasoline
and change the filter.
Brown or Bald Spots
Clean up dead grass with a rake, trowel or
shovel. Scrape the grown grass or poke holes
in it. Lightly scatter seed.
Loosen edges of the brown patch using a
shovel. Dig up the dead grass. You could use
a device called a sod cutter to help. Till
the soil. Rake remaining debris, grass and
soil to even out the surface. Lay sod by
first starting along an edge. Butt the ends
together. Cut off any excess using a
knife. Roll out any bumps. Water sod
to help it establish a good root system.
