How-To Take Care of Your Lawn (Turf Grass)

Irrigation Supply Outlet helps your turf grass grow.

There are two great ways to take care of your lawn: Aerification and Overseeding:

Aerification helps reduce compaction in heavy traffic areas and increases air exchange in the root zone. This is a very important agricultural practice that helps your existing grass recover from the stresses of summer weather and use.

Overseeding helps increase desired turf in thin areas that have developed over the course of the summer season. Conditions in the fall are perfect for growing grass from seed. Soil temperatures are warm, allowing for quick seed germination. Air temperatures are warm during the day and mild at night, giving seedlings a fighting chance. Be sure to cover your newly planted seed with a good soil conditioner. This keeps the seed moist and protected from birds. Also, use a good starter fertilizer. This provides nutrients and helps seedlings develop strong roots.
