5 Top Denver Lawn Care Tips - Keep It Green
Watering Schedule: It’s best to water in the early morning to avoid evaporation in the middle of the day. The exception to this in Dener lawn care is when we experience extremely hot weather and the temperature at night doesn’t go below 68 degrees. When this is the case, you can also water in the early evening.
Spring and Fall Aeration: Regular aeration is crucial to the maintenance of a healthy lawn because it loosens the compacted soil and increases oxygen to the roots. It encourages water and nutrient infiltration as well as root growth. Spring and fall is the best time to do this to make it easy to deliver seed and fertilizer to the root system. It also allows ample water supply to the soil after harsh compaction of winter snow.
Lawn Mower Maintenance: Make sure to sharpen your lawnmower’s blades every 1-2 years to ensure grass cut rather than being torn. A sharp blade not only cuts the blades clean so the grass recovers quickly, but it helps reduce the time it takes to mow your lawn.
Consistent Fertilization and Weeding: Keeping up with your weeding and fertilization is an important part of keeping your lawn growing strong and healthy. Fertilizer helps with recovery from foot traffic and reduces and controls weed growth. Weed prevention is best practiced in the fall and early spring to take advantage of the growing season of turf grasses.
Check Your Sprinklers: Make sure that the heads of your sprinklers aren’t too low to reach over the top of the grass and spray in the proper pattern. If you have a puddle around your spray heads, it could mean that the valve isn’t closing all the way and is allowing water to leak. Make sure to get these problems fixed sooner rather than later to avoid uneven watering.
