We can design a maintenance program to meet your needs.
Proper and skilled maintenance is essential for not only the appearance, but the health of your turf and landscape material.
The frequency of cutting the turf should increase to 7 to 10 day intervals during the heavy growing season (May thru October). During these months, the amount of rainfall and the increased amount of sunlight and heat encourages more rapid growth of turf and other plants. Cutting the grass every two weeks during this time means that an excessive amount of grass canopy is being reduced, thus exposing the grass runners to excessive sunlight causing burns. It also leaves larger amounts of cut grass, creating thatch build up. This thatch build up on the turf hinders the rainfall or irrigation in penetrating to the root zone.
A large amount of the moisture is absorbed by the thatch like a sponge preventing its deeper penetration.
It is important to note that shallow, or surface watering, promotes a shallow root zone as the roots will grow to the water source.Deep penetration of the water promotes deeper root growth creating healthier turf and plants. Watering to the proper depth allows for a more consistent supply of moisture as the deeper the supply, evaporation is minimized.
It is also important to remember, when watering, that depth is more important than frequency. Fifteen minutes 4 times a week is less beneficial than 25 – 30 minutes 2 times a week. Irrigation should be done so the water soaks to a minimum depth of ¾ to 1 inch. Irrigation should be done during early hours. Minimal amounts applied more often evaporate prior to reaching the root zone. The deeper the root zone, the better the grass withstands stress.
The same holds true with shrubs. Radical pruning during the summer months exposes the previously protected under growth to direct sunlight and can cause burning of the newly exposed leaves. Sharp mower blades and pruning equipment is also important, as a clean cut helps prevent disease problems, as well as helping the over all appearance of the turf and plant material.
