Four Steps to a Healthy Lawn 

Dethatch your grass and rake out the excess thatch.

Feed your lawn with the appropriate fertilizer for your grass type at the suggested times.

  Every few years, aerate your lawn in fall and spring when grass is actively growing, but not stressed by the hot sun. 

Kill the weeds. Small patches may be dug out,but others will require specialized weed killer.Check the labels and apply as the label suggests.

Tip of the Month

Hand pull weeds such as henbit and chickweed to prevent them from going to seed. Check your mulch level. You need about 2 inch layer to suppress and manage weeds.
