What good is a landscaping blog without a proverbial post about keeping your grass green? There are many elements to a well-designed and aesthetically pleasing yard, but there’s just something about a patch of perfectly green, healthy grass that draws in the human eye. It’s not uncommon for neighbors in an affluent subdivision to have passive-aggressive contests to see who can grow the greenest, most well-kept grass on the block. From a commercial landscaping standpoint, green grass may be a salesman for you in the sense that your business looks nice and customers are therefore more likely to walk in.

Whatever the case, everyone can appreciate a nice, healthy patch of grass (our apologies to those who are allergic to grass — at least you can appreciate the visual qualities of green grass from afar).

Be Mindful of Thatch
The layer of undecomposed rhizomes, stolons, and stems on top of your grass is known as “thatch.” Essentially, this is a naturally occurring layer of mostly dead grass. Should your layer of thatch get too thick (more than about ½ inch), we’ll dethatch your lawn to help it breathe easier and absorb nutrients and water more efficiently.
The Right Amount of Water
On average, the Gainesville area receives about 50 inches of rain per year — considerably more than the national average of 39 inches. As such, you probably won’t be relying on an irrigation system that would otherwise be necessary for drier climates. We’ll pay close attention to your lawn’s health, and make any adjustments in watering as we see fit.
Following a Fertilizer Schedule
Generally speaking, fertilizer companies recommend applying lawn fertilizer in four main stages. Naturally, the timing of these stages varies on each region and climatic factors. While it’s easy to view your grass as one cohesive unit (i.e., a “lawn”), the reality is that there are millions of small but individual plants that must be attended to and fed. Our residential and commercial landscapers will make sure that your lawn is getting the perfect and balanced amount of fertilizer.
Mowing At The Correct Height
Cut your grass too short and your lawn won’t respond very kindly. Conversely, growing a jungle of a lawn out on your front yard not only looks bad but could also spell problems down the road. Leaving a light layer of grass clippings right where they were cut can help provide valuable nutrients to your lawn, and the remaining clippings won’t be an eyesore, either. In any case, our commercial lawn care experts can adjust our blade heights anytime, anywhere.
