Thatch is a type of dead yellow grass that doesn't allow the air and moisture to reach the soil. It prevents all the vital nutrients from reaching the depths of the roots. You need to get rid of them as soon as possible, but don't do it aggressively because this will destroy the lawn. Power raking can be helpful at times, but not always. You can make 3-4 shallow passes in some spots in one and go deeper in others. To avoid collateral damage, you can use flags to mark those specific places where there are sprinkler heads.
Do not make use of a dirty dethatcher, as the dirt from the previous user can spread diseases and some aggressive weed seeds. Hence, it is a bad idea to rent a piece of equipment which is dirty and beat-up. You don't want to take the risk of ruining all your efforts put into your lawn just because of carelessness and laziness.
Therefore, always make use of clean machines and products - choose good equipment from the stores and well-maintained tools.
Every lawn lover and caretaker knows that early fall or autumn is the best time to sow the seeds and is also known as 'Reboot season'. If you are planning to reseed in your lawn, then Lawn Love suggests you use proper turfgrass seed which is easily available if you opt for our services for the landscape supply only.
The breeders of the turfgrass put constant effort to improve the quality of their seeds, and some even produce specific regional types of seeds. These seeds are more vigorous than the seeds that are sold at the home centers.
There's an old saying that 'cheap tools are expensive. That means that you might have to pay some extra for the proprietary seed, but they will give you better results and have tremendous longevity. You won't have to keep reseeding them.
Lawn Love professionals till the soil first, then sow the seed and then cover it with compost. Compost is a thin and lightweight layer of soil/peat blend of moss. Then we keep it moist until it is dry and ready to bloom.
To stop the leaves from blocking the sunlight, you must remove them so that it's easier for the plant to grow deep roots and for the process of photosynthesis to take place. By receiving adequate sunlight, the task of the grasses and plants becomes easier. Grasses grow slowly during the winter season, but this doesn't mean that they won't need feeding.
Don't let all the time and effort you put go in vain after racing around throughout in summer by stopping in winter. You need to cross this last hurdle by applying winterizes, which are basically the 4th step of fertilizer application. It can easily be found in the local stores, or you can contact Lawn Love for some advice.
These types of winterizes contain Potassium which is commonly known as potash. This helps in maintaining the rooted stability, disease resistance, and hardiness of the cold weather. After this application, you can get tremendous results in the upcoming season, the spring season. You will start to notice that the lawn will start to grow green much quicker.
Sticks And Twigs Removal
Leaves are not the only thing that falls during Autumn. Some of the other annoyances that fall during the Autumn season are branches, seedpods, unpicked rotten fruits, husks, nutshells, branches, and twigs.
Now you might be thinking of pruning the trees to reduce the problem, but that's not always the case as this might not eliminate the problem. You need something more efficient and powerful leaf blower to face problems like these.
Use a backpack, and some powerful leaf blowers are far better than the old method at moving the debris off the lawn and collecting them into a pile.
If you have uneven patches in your lawn, and it is bumpy in places, then use a good quality spreader for leveling the area. Professional care like Lawn Love will help make this task easier for you.
Using a junky spreader with solid plastic tires, a balky feed mechanism, and a narrow handle is both time-consuming and tiring work. You might also end up wasting too many lawn care products, and they aren't cheap.
So we would like to suggest you invest in a spreader which has a large handle, an edge guard to keep the seeds and fertilizers, pneumatic tires, and herbicides.
As already mentioned above, you need to get rid of the vines, twigs, sticks, and nuts for lawn care. These objects block the sunlight to reach the turf and block the drainage system.
Weeds are the unwanted plants that grow along with grasses and compete with them for water and other vital nutrients. They need much fewer nutrients and can grow faster than the landscapes in any harsh conditions. They ruin the entire look of the turf and destroy them by stopping their growth.
So the best time to remove them would be before they take control over the yard. You can either use the old school method, which is pulling them out with bare hands, or use weedkillers.
Weed killers are basically organic herbicides that affect just the weeds and not the plants and grasses. Some specific weed-controlled chemicals are also available that stops the weeds from germinating.
All these methods are covered by our experts and specialists at Lawn Love, where we provide outstanding service and are your local lawn care doctors.
