Lawn Problems Caused by Wrong Maintenance

The lawn in your garden can be your pride and joy if well maintained. Lawn problems are often caused by incorrect maintenance procedures. We do not only help to address lawn problems through a well planned maintenance plan, but also provide clients with useful tips and information about proper lawn maintenance to reduce the risk of grass dying, pest and weed infestations, and more.

Over Dosage of Fertilizer

Using the wrong fertilizer and applying incorrect quantities at the wrong time of the year can cause severe lawn problems. It is of paramount importance to first do a soil PH test before applying fertilizer. You furthermore need to assess which grass type grows in your garden, whether it is a summer or a winter grass, what season it is and how moist the soil is before applying fertilizer. We provide a free 14 point analysis regarding the state of the lawn and the soil before we apply a program of treatment.

Too Much Water

Just as the lawn can die because of too little water, too much water can hinder the growth of the grass. One way to determine whether the grass needs water is to walk on the grass. If there are footprints left, you know that water is needed.

Wrong Mowing Practices

The grass should not be cut too short. By over mowing the grass, the nutrient production will be reduced and the grass will grow slower. Slow growing grass leaves enough space for weeds infestation. The best method for mowing is to cut the grass only a third of blade length to ensure that there will be enough nutrient production capacity left to produce food required for growth. Too short grass will die, not have enough strength to fight of weeds infestations, and will also lead to dry soil. This in turn will lead to browning and thinning of the grass.
