I watch soccer, baseball and football on the same all year. Each game runs about three months every season. That makes nine months of tough play every year. I can’t help but notice that the grass looks greener every time I visit the place. I was speaking with a friend’s from the maintenance crew and we agreed that there are probably five things that make lawn service in Savannah really effective. Here is our list of the five most important things to learn from a good lawn service in Savannah.
Survey the Weather
Professional landscapers take their time in studying the weather. Weather tells you how much you need to water and what kind of pests you need to be worrying about. If you want professional looking grass, you want to be thinking about what the weather will bring in the coming days, weeks and months. That will tell you how much more (or less) you want to water, and what kinds of pests to expect.
Professional lawn services in Savannah will all tell you to water during the cool parts of the day: generally 9 PM and 5 PM (when dew naturally forms). Keep in mind you want to water deeply, not frequently. A good soak less often is better than frequent irrigation.
Repairing Bald Patches of the Lawn
If you find a bald patch or a place where grass is thin, add about a half an inch of sand to enable the grass to thicken in that area. That will provide a loose substrate to enable new grass to grow.
Aerating the Lawn Area
Another Savannah lawn service secret is proper aeration. Aeration allows your grass to get water more effectively and develop a better root.
Weeding and Pest Control
During breaks (especially fall season) a team applies and spray an herbicide with 2, 4-D, and MCPP to eradicate the perennial weeds during and the coming seasons. The important thing is to find the right product to eliminate fungus, weeds, and the host of critters that invade Savannah lawns.
