Lawn Maintenance in Fort Collins, CO

Watering – A minimum of 1 ½ inches of water per week is usually sufficient.   Water ½ inch tree times per week.  To measure how much water is actually being applied to the lawn, place a few flat containers (tuna can or pie pan will do) around the lawn.  Time how long it takes to accumulate ½ inch in the container.  Exposed areas, slopes and edges may require additional water.  The best time to water your lawn is 2:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m.

Mowing – Two ½ to 3 inches is the ideal height for most lawns. Higher mowing promotes deeper root development, shades the soil and helps prevent weed seeds from germinating.  The lawn should be mowed often enough so that no more than 1/3 of the leaf blade is removed.  Keep the mower blade sharp to avoid fraying the leaf blades.  Leaving your clippings is beneficial as long as they are short and evenly distributed.  The clippings will not contribute to thatch buildup.
