How much water does my Wayne lawn need during the summer?
The amount of watering you need to do for your lawn during the summer depends on what type of grass turf you have and the soil content. Our sandy soil means more watering because the water moves through it so fast.
Our Wayne landscaping company recommends watering about 1.5" of water per week. Make sure it reaches a depth of about 6 inches down.
Cool season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass and fescue can be allowed to slow down and go dormant during the hottest parts of summer.
Warm season grasses like perennial Rye don't do that well here in Northern NJ winters but if you do have it, be sure to water it throughout the warm season.
What is the "seasonal cleanup" service?
Our seasonal cleanup service is a fast and easy way to get rid of all the leaves and other tree debris from your yard to prepare it for winter or the spring rains. All that lawn debris can turn into a wet, moldy mess if left to decay. We remove all the leaves, sticks, twigs, and dead branches, leaving you with a clean lawn.
Will a well-maintained lawn raise my Wayne property value?
A well-maintained, beautiful landscape is a definite boost to your home's curb appeal, and therefore to the value of your Wayne area home. Buyers want a sharp-looking landscape that looks taken care of, so a beautiful, neat yard will also help you to sell quicker if you decide to move.
When should I fertilize my lawn?
The best time to fertilize your lawn in the Wayne area is seasonally starting in spring, through summer, and into fall. Our 7 step fertilizer program helps to prevent crabgrass growth in the spring, feeds the turf and controls weeds during early summer, feeds and boosts the growth of the grass in the late summer, and then protects and strengthens the lawn before winter sets in.
