Did you know that Utah is the second driest state in the Union? We want to make sure that your lawn is looking as green and healthy as possible with reducing the amount of water you are putting on your lawn.
Water less frequently but longer is better for your lawn than frequent short intervals. It makes your roots dig deeper to get the water locked in the soil, thus giving your lawn an edge against our dry environment in Utah.
Watering in the mornings between 4:30 and 6:00 is the prime time to water your lawn so that it allows the water to soak into the soil without evaporating in the sun or letting it soak and allowing fungus to grow and damage your roots.
The efficiency of your watering system is key. Make sure that you don't have any broken irrigation lines or clogged heads.

Lawn Mowing and Maintenance
Did you know that cutting your lawn to short can actually damage your lawn? When you cut it to short it not only makes the blade shorter and doesn't shade the soil below as well but it also pulls up thatch which holds in moisture as well as forces the roots below the soil to get shorter. Thus making it more susceptible to drought and disease conditions.
On the other hand, letting your grass grow to long prevents the bottom portion of the blade from getting sunlight and your grass tends to fall onto itself and sufficates your turf.
Cutting your grass on a regular basis and at the right height is one of the most key ingredients to maintaining the exterior look of your property. A good rule of thumb is to cut about 1/3 of your grass blade off once a week for best results.
