Baltimore lawn care services

Visitors to Baltimore comment on the beautiful grass. It's beauty lies in Maryland being situated halfway between the sunny South and the cooler North. Baltimore grass grows in partial shade, while some grow better in full light. Moisture isn't a problem in Baltimore, as the rain and snow are reasonably constant. All this combines to give Baltimore lush, emerald grass. Lawn care has morphed into a science, with companies using the latest technology to make your grass glow. However, homeowners need to know several things before they randomly seed their lawns.


Certain grasses are better acclimated to specific uses. For instance, homeowners' kids play in the yard, friends and family come over for a cookout, or business associates stroll the property and talk business. Hardy grasses are best suited for these activities.


An 80 percent to 20 percent mixture of tall fescue and Kentucky bluegrass is ideal for high traffic areas. Kentucky bluegrass takes up to three months to take root and grow, while the tall fescue takes less time and bonds well with the bluegrass.


Do You Want Cool Season Grass Or Warm Season Grass?


Tall fescue does well in drought conditions and full sun. It's okay in the shade and handles traffic well. Kentucky bluegrass handles drought conditions, full sun, and high traffic well, but not so much in the shade. Fine fescue does okay in drought conditions and shade but doesn't do well in full sun or high traffic. Perennial ryegrass manages full sun and high traffic well but doesn't do well in shade or drought conditions. Zoysiagrass performs well in all conditions except shade. Bermudagrass performs well in all conditions except shade.


Baltimore is located in north-central Maryland. Its summers are much like the remainder of the state, but it's winters tend to be warmer than most. This means that cool and warm season grasses won't grow in certain parts of the state year-round. A mixture of the two is necessary for Baltimore lawns to thrive and glow.


Warm season grasses include Zoysiagrass and bermudagrass. Best planted in late spring, these grasses go dormant from October to May. They will look yellow like straw. These grasses grow best from spring through summer and require less mowing than other types of grass. It grows slower.


Cool season grasses include tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass. Growing best in the spring and fall, these grasses are best sown in the spring and fall. Cool season grasses remain green all year depending on the rainfall. These grasses are high maintenance but can go dormant in a sweltering summer.


Things To Remember


Fertilizing


Fertilizer spread at seeding time is good for six to eight weeks. Fertilizing grass sown in spring must not be done later than June 1. Likewise, fertilizing grass sown in fall mustn't be done later than November 15.


Traffic


After seeding, restrict traffic in the area for at least one month to give the grass time to take root and grow.


Water


Watering is vital to plant growth. Allowing the seeds to dry out means dead grass. Irrigation in the newly planted area is essential especially on hot, windy days. Watering the lawn several times per day is recommended. Sandy ground dries out faster and requires frequent watering. Keep the soil moist to a depth of four to six inches instead of saturated.


Famous Baltimore Grass


Following years of knee injuries playing both football and baseball on artificial turf, the M&T Bank Stadium (or Ravens Stadium) and Camden Yards (or Orioles Stadium) decided to return to natural grass. In 2016, both stadiums brought over 400 tons of Kentucky bluegrass sod to dress the sports fields.


At first, Ravens players slipped and slid all over the field, but the players all say the grass feels better. It's true they've had fewer injuries on the grass, and their game has improved.
