Lawn Care FAQs

(These questions change frequently. Check back often for new topics!)

Q: What's the best way to dispose of my grass clippings?

Actually, the best thing to do with grass clippings is leave them on the grass! Many people think that clippings will smother the grass. That is a common misconception. Grass clippings actually help the grass stay healthy as they decompose and add vital nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium - the same basic ingredients found in most fertilizer - back into the soil. Clippings left on the ground can also help control water runoff.

Q: When is the best time to water my yard?

Water early in the morning for best results and the most efficient use of water. Afternoon watering usually results in high evaporation, and watering too close to sundown can leave grass susceptible to disease and mold. Remember the rule of thumb is to allow your yard a total of one inch of water per week through a combination of rain and watering.
