  • During springtime, you should seed or sod your yard.
  • Loading topsoil to new lawns is beneficial in the spring.
  • Seeding a new lawn takes longer than sod.
  • Seeding requires daily watering or the grass will die.
  • Sod is more expensive than seeding, but it will provide an almost instant lawn that can be planted in most climate zones in any season.

Summer Lawn Care Tips

Fall Lawn Care Tips

  • During the summer, raise the lawn mower for cool-season grass.
  • During the summer lower the lawn mower for warm-season grass.
  • Lawns require longer and more frequent watering in the summer.
  • Watering is best done in early morning to encourage a stronger root system.
  • In the summer, apply all-purpose fertilizer.
  • In the fall, lawns can be mowed at a lower height.
  • In autumn, thatch buildup that occurs in warm-season grasses should be removed.
  • Fall is a good time to add a sandy loam and apply fertilizer, one that contains some type of wetting agent.
  • Cool-season lawns can be planted in autumn if there is adequate rainfall.
