Preventing lawn disease
Healthy lawns just require a little care to stay that way. Generally speaking, keeping your lawn healthy will help prevent lawn diseases and can help prevent weeds.
MOWING: It is critical that you maintain the recommended height for your variety of lawn.
- A rule of thumb is to only remove one-third of the grass when cutting.
- Keep blades sharp for a clean cut. Ragged edges and tearing are hard on the grass.
- Change your mowing pattern each time you mow.
WATERING: Watering deeply and less frequently helps roots to grow deeper and stronger. Never water your lawn at night. This can cause unwanted disease.
FEEDING: Regularly fed lawns absorb water and nutrients better than unfed lawns. Using a system like Scott’s® Turf Builder® is recommended because their all-in-one formulas make lawn maintenance a cinch!
