The following is a list of seasonal service recommendations to keep your lawn and landscape healthy and beautiful all year long!

Spring

Spring Clean Up: Now is the time to remove all leaves, sticks and other debris. Heavy accumulation of lawn debris will smother the lawn and create bare areas.

Fertilize: In the spring, your lawn will need a fertilizer to stimulate an early green up.

Pre-Emergent: This application is a weed preventer and is applied prior to germination. This special application will not only give your lawn the food it needs, but will help to prevent certain weeds from growing throughout the spring and summer months.

Bed Maintenance & Seasonal Color: Now is the time for the removal and disposal of existing weeds and dead plant material from your landscape beds. Then you’ll be ready to brighten up your property by installing colorful flowers into your landscape beds.

Mulch Beds: Re-mulching landscape beds around your home not only spruces them up and highlights your seasonal color, but it also helps keep the soil moist to the roots of the plants and discourages the growth of weeds.

Lawn Scalping & Mowing: Scalping your lawn in February will remove the thatch and un-decomposed debris that accumulated during the previous year. Scalping allows necessary sunlight to reach the new growth, which promotes the health and future growth of the turf. Afterwards, it’s time to start your regularly scheduled weekly/bi-weekly mowing.

Summer

Proper Watering: Water in the morning, and try to avoid late afternoon or night watering. This will allow ample time for the grass and plants to dry throughout the day and prevents fungus or other bacteria from growing in moist areas overnight. A lawn needs about 1 inch of water per week.

Core Aerating: During the summer, soil tends to become compacted, which can be decreased by aerating. Aerating your lawn allows water to seep down to the grass roots and brings air back into the sub-soil. Sub-surface air and water are necessary for turf to grow.

Fertilize: It is necessary to fertilize in summer to continue the health regimen of your lawn. This will help thicken the grass and promote an overall greener lawn.

Grub Worm Prevention Application: Early- to mid- July is the best time to apply grub worm prevention so that your lawn doesn’t suffer from an infestation of these pests.

Lawn Mowing: Avoid cutting your lawn too short during the summer. Optimal length of your grass should be 3 inches. This helps shade out weeds, keeps the roots cooler, and encourages deeper root growth. Cutting too much off the top leads to thinned out grass and shallow root systems.

Fall

Pre-Emergent Application: This specially formulated winterizing fertilizer is higher in nitrogen and contains a weed preventer. This application will make the grass more winter hardy, help prevent weeds, and green up the lawn earlier next spring.

Fertilize: It is necessary to fertilize in the fall to continue the health regimen of your lawn. This will help thicken the grass and promote an overall greener lawn.

Lawn Renovation: Fall is the time to over-seed your lawn with a fescue or rye application, provided that there are no city watering restrictions.

Plant: This is a great season for planting trees and shrubs. These new plants will have plenty of time to settle in and allow their root structures to become stronger before winter dormancy. Make sure they have plenty of mulch and water on a regular basis until they become established.

Bed Maintenance & Seasonal Color: This is the perfect time to remove all of the remaining spring color from your landscape, clean out the beds, and install new fall (flowers) color.

Mulch: Don’t forget to check your mulch density for the recommended 2-4 inches, and add more if necessary. Again, adding fresh mulch will help your seasonal color pop and retain much needed moisture for your plants.

Winter

Remove Weeds, Leaves & Debris: Always remove all debris and leaves from your lawn and landscaped beds. This is important for winter lawn care so that the debris does not breakdown or decompose on your lawn and cause possible fungus or other lawn disease problems. Even though there may be fewer weeds in the winter, still make sure they are removed so they do not choke out your slower growing lawn.

Tree Trimming: This is the optimal time for tree trimming.

Trimming of Ornamental Grasses: To give these plants a better start in the spring, we recommend trimming them back during their dormancy.

Established Lawn Watering

The North Texas area contains many different soil types. Monitor your yard and garden watering to find what is suitable for plant growth. The following is a suggested watering schedule. Each yard is different, so monitor your garden.

December 1 per week 15 min. 9:00am

Triple the above times for rotary type sprinkler heads and drip zones.

If you expect a severe freeze (temperatures below 32°F) water heavily to close air pocket and insulate around root systems, then turn off sprinkler.

NOTE: Soil types, sun exposure and climatic conditions will vary from site to site. Please monitor your watering.

Watering Suggestions

1.Sprinkler systems do not water trees adequately. Trees should be deep watered by hose every five to seven days. Deep water trees by setting hose to trickle for 30 minutes.
2. All new plants should be watered daily for the first 2 weeks.
3. Do not water from 12:00pm to 5pm. This is the hottest part of the day. Also, avoid watering at night as this promotes fungus growth.
4. Sprinklers should be set to start at 5:00am – 7:00am during summer and after 8am during winter.
5. During winter months with early morning temperatures below 38°F, the freeze/rain sensor will prevent sprinklers from coming on. Start times should be later in the morning.
6. During heavy rains, the freeze/rain sensor can prevent the sprinkler system from coming on for 2 – 3 days. During the summer, the rain/freeze sensor will need to be bypassed so new lawns can be watered.
NOTE: If new sod is not watered for 24 – 48 hours during warm and hot months, the sod will be damaged or will die. Lack of watering or over watering will void warranties that may have been in place on any plants, trees or grass.
7. Do not water the foliage. This may result in sun scald.
8. Keep new sod wet for 10 days after installation.
9. Water should deep soak the ground. Your plants need to establish deep root systems. Light watering keeps the top wet and does not encourage roots to grow deeper. Watering several times at one hour intervals will deep soak a planting bed.
10. Allow root balls to dry between each watering as this will prevent root rot and will draw oxygen into the soil. However, never allow a root ball to dry out completely.
11. Over Watering: If a plant starts to look poorly and you have been watering on a regular schedule, wait 24 hours after a watering and lift the affected plant and observe the bottom of the hole. If there is water standing in the hole discontinue watering.

NOTE: Soil conditions throughout Texas vary so watering needs will also vary. These are recommendations only.
