St. Louis lawn care services

There are so many great things to see and do in the Show Me State, and the greater St. Louis area has an abundance of local highlights. From the Gateway Arch to the Saint Louis Zoo, the metro area has a menu of unique places to brag about. You can take visitors on a Mississippi riverboat cruise and then have a local beer at a downtown brewery. Visitors to the city often ask if you can see the Busch Stadium from the Gateway Arch, and it's true. One of the most popular places to see the famous baseball diamond is from inside the Arch.


Busch Stadium Grass Seed and Fertilizer


Not only do the St. Louis Cardinals have a fervent fan base, but the Busch Stadium grass has many admirers, as well. In fact, the vibrant green lawn of Busch Stadium is so famous that when the ball club put in new grass in 2017, it became a local news story.


If you want to duplicate the lawn from Busch Stadium, you have several options to achieve those results. Homeowners don't usually have a professional crew like baseball teams have to take care of their lawns. With the proper care, though, you can get professional results for your home's lawn.


Duplicate the Busch Stadium Grass


Busch Stadium grass seed mix features a large amount of Kentucky bluegrass for its cool-season grass and ryegrass for the warm-season grass. The professional groundskeepers for the St. Louis Cardinals say they prefer the Bluegrass for its bright green color, its excellent performance in cool weather, and its ability to spread into a lush lawn that feels good underneath your feet.


Baseball Stadium Grass Length


Most of the baseball stadiums throughout the United States keep their grass approximately two inches high, although it can vary up to 1/2 inch, depending upon the team's request. Like most lawn care professionals, I generally advise homeowners to keep newly-established grass approximately 2 to 3 inches high. Keeping your grass a little taller in the early part of the season helps to promote a healthy root system, which will lessen your need to water heavily later in the season. Did you know the United States has almost 50 million acres of grass? About half of that is covering our front and back yards.


Lawn Tips to Achieve Maximum Results


Most homeowners will find that they get the best results by planting a blend of different seeds in the seed mix. The Missouri Botanical Garden suggests that you use a mixture of cool-season and warm-season grasses, and that's my recommendation, as well. It's best to plant seeds in the fall. Any time between early September to mid-October is the ideal time for seeding. For the thickest and most dense lawns, my advice is that you use a technique called overseeding.


St. Louis Is In Transition Zone from North to South


As many lawn enthusiasts know, St. Louis is located in a weather transition zone, between the northern cool zone and southern warm zone. Many people who are originally from the southern states like to plant southern varieties of grass like bluegrass. Bluegrass can work effectively in St. Louis area lawns, particularly in the southern suburbs. To balance out your lawn needs, though, I suggest you may want to plant a mix of hardier cool-season seeds as well.


As the weather gets warmer, it's essential for you to adjust the height of your lawnmower. Never mow more than one-third of your grass height, to promote your lawn staying as thick and green as possible. When the weather temperature grows hotter, be sure to leave the grass length longer again in late summer. It helps prevent your lawn from turning brown in the heat.


Lawn Preparation and Maintenance


Having an attractive lawn takes a lot of care and labor throughout the spring, summer, and fall. In the fall, you want to overseed to get the fullest possible lawn in the following summer. Once the winter snow melts, you'll want to get back to work on the lawn as quickly as possible. Clean up winter debris and aerate the ground to facilitate your lawn seed growing as thick as possible. In the spring, you may want to add more seed mix again.


Use a Blend of Different Grass Seeds


Keep in mind that you'll be happy with the results if you choose a seed mix that's a hybrid. I would recommend that most homeowners in the St. Louis area will be satisfied with a seed mix that is 95% turf-type tall fescue and a compatible Kentucky bluegrass variety for the remaining 5% of seed. This mix will guarantee your lawn can adapt to the temperature and weather changes through the growing season. It's particularly useful for the transition zones of your yard that may have full sun and moderately shaded areas throughout the different times of the day.


In contrast, if your lawn is shaded throughout the day, you will want to choose a seed mix that is specially formulated as a shady lawn mixture, like a mix that contains a high concentration of fine leaf fescues.


To achieve the ideal lawn for your home, you want to choose a grass seed mix that gives you a balance of good grass color, has a strong density and is disease resistant. Once you've planted your seed mix, water well.


Fertilizer and Plenty of Water


Be sure to use fertilizer for best results, but check that you are using a slow-release fertilizer that is high in nitrogen. Also, you want to use care that your fertilizer if safe for children and pets. If it's a warmer spring, you may have to water a couple of times a day until the root system is more developed.


Weeding and Watering


Once your grass is fully established, you will want to set a lawn maintenance routine. Make sure your lawn mower is in good repair and set up a regular watering schedule. Focus on weed control to attack the weeds like crabgrass before they've had a chance to overtake your lawn.


Consider a Lawn Care Team


If you follow all these steps, you will end up with a lawn that will give you bragging rights all season long. If you need assistance maintaining your yard, you may want to consider using a team of top-quality lawn care professionals. Using a high-quality lawn care team will make your life easier, allowing you to spend less time working on your lawn and more time enjoying it with family and friends.
