How often should I mow my lawn?
At Impeccable Landscapes, we recommend mowing your lawn once a week during the spring and summer seasons when your grass is growing fast. If you allow more time between mowings, your lawn will be more susceptible to weeds.
When the weather in Spokane begins to cool and the fall season has arrived, your grass growth will slow and you can typically reduce down to mowing once every other week.
How tall should my grass be?
During the spring and summer months, you want to keep your lawn slightly longer than during the colder seasons. This allows your grass to retain more moisture and also blocks the sun from hitting the soil which encourages the growth of weeds. You should also note that we never recommend removing more than one-third of your grasses height at a time. This could cause damage to the grass and other subsequent problems.
During the fall months, you can begin keeping your lawn a bit shorter. This will minimize the amount of grass that is present when the snow begins to fall.
How much should I water my lawn?
Your lawn requires 1-inch to 1 ½-inches of water each week. It is more beneficial to do a couple of heavier waterings each week rather than watering your lawn lightly every day. Watering your lawn deeply for about 20 to 30 minutes two to three times a week is usually sufficient, although this will vary depending on the type of sprinkler system you have. During extreme hot spells, you may want to water your lawn more frequently.
When is the best time to water my lawn?
The best time of day to water your lawn is in the morning between the hours of 6 am to 10 am. You should avoid watering during the hottest parts of the day or at night.
How do I control the growth of weeds?
If you want to enjoy a healthy, green lawn, then you’ll need to control weed growth. While keeping your lawn well-manicured and mowing on a weekly basis can help with this, some weeds require the same exact conditions that grass does to grow. The only way to prevent these types of weeds is by applying a weed control product to your lawn. If you are unsure of which type of weed control is best, the Spokane lawn care experts at Impeccable Landscapes can help.
