Lawn Maintenance Lets build a lawn

{short description of image}

Established lawns need regular care if they are to remain beautiful. This care includes such things as plant feeding, reseeding, and proper mowing and watering. In northern sections, fall offers an ideal season for renovating established lawns since it enables gardeners to combine an effective weed control program with lawn care.

When feeding lawns in spring, after growth starts, apply 3 pounds, of Lawn fertilizer per 100 square feet of area . . . when the grass is dry. Knock the plant food off the blades by ruffling the grass with the back of a rake and then soak thoroughly. When revitalizing lawns in fall, first spray the entire lawn area with selective lawn weed control. Then, when weeds begin to die, apply 3 pounds of Lawn fertilizer per 100 square feet and soak the lawn thoroughly. A day or two later go over the lawn, loosening thin areas with a rake. Reseed these areas and roll or tamp them to make certain seed is in firm contact with soil

In reseeding lawns, use about 3 pounds of good grass seed per 1,000 square feet of area. Be certain that the seed planted is suited .to the location. For example, do not plant bluegrass in dense shade

Lawns should be watered thoroughly …..soaked to a depth of 4 or 5 inches…. Not sprinkled. Sprinkling encourages shallow root development and such turf is easily killed. When mowing, do not cut bluegrass lawns shorter than 11/2 inches.
