Lawn Fertilization Dos and Don’ts
Practicing good lawn care is easier said than done. Many business owners, unfortunately, make the mistake of guessing or winging it when it comes to fertilization. The problem is that many people don’t understand how much work goes into getting the lawn at your business that you want. At Servello & Son in Central Florida and Orlando, we want to make sure that your commercial lawn is green and thriving all year long. To learn more about lawn fertilization dos and don’t, read the following information and reach out to one of our staff members for a consultation. We offer an array of lawn care services, regular maintenance, pest control, landscaping design, and fertilization.
Mowing The Lawn
The simple act of mowing your commercial lawn keeps the ends of your grass healthy and stimulates future growth. Before going outside to cut the grass, first, make sure that the grass is longer than your ideal height. Many experts agree that the best height is somewhere between 3 – 4 inches of grass. Cutting the lawn too short, however, can cause damage to the grass and prevents them from soaking in the nutrients they need to look healthy and green.
Watering The Lawn
Like many other things, water is essential to the survival of your lawn. Watering the grass about once a week or as needed will prevent yellow blades or a dry landscape. We also know that the Central Florida sun can make the conditions even worse. Try watering the grass early in the morning to give your lawn plenty of time to absorb the moisture. Those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of manual watering can look into getting a custom irrigation system.
Fertilize The Lawn
Grass needs proper nutrients to grow strong and healthy. Of course, you will want to fertilize your commercial lawn once you have properly cut and watered it. Most people like to use a spreader to make sure it is scattered evenly throughout the entire lawn. Servello & Son also recommends using natural fertilizers that are free of harsh chemicals, as these can be harmful to children or pets. Some of our favorite fertilizers include mulched grass clippings and compost. To learn more about the products we use in lawn care, give our team a call.
Watch Out For Pests!
Great lawn care includes watching out for potential problems. We are all too familiar with frustrating pests and bugs that can harm your lawn. If you see patchy or browning patches forming, you may have a problem with pests. We suggest spot-checking your grass every few weeks and reach out to Servello & Son if you notice any issues.
