What's your favorite grass variety?
Have you ever rescued a lawn from certain death? How did you do it?
An overgrown lawn is a common start in the possible demise of a lawn. At this point, it can 'go to seed' which encourages the growth of weeds. The solution is to slowly reduce the height of the grass over 2 or 3 mowings, as taking more than 1/3 of its height at the same time causes the grass to go into shock, which usually results in a quick or imminent death. By following up with a good fertilizer high in Phosphorous helps build a strong root system. The most important requirement in a lawns health is proper irrigation. If one is committed to heavy watering, then any lawn can be revived!
