Here are a few simple tips for Floridians who want to make sure that the grass is always greener in their lawn. Remember, your lawn is the first thing people see when they visit your home. Having a beautiful house is pointless without a lawn that matches. In Florida, the most common type of grass is St. Augustine Grass because it flourishes in hot and humid climates.
AERATING – Aerating your yard once or twice per year is an easy way to ensure that your lawn stays healthy. Aerating is simply poking small holes all across your lawn so water has a place to drain and so that the small life forms within the grass get some fresh air. Aerating tools can be purchased at most hardware stores but a sharp point on any garden tool will work fine.
WATER – We all know watering your lawn is important and essential. Without water your lawn will surely wither up and die. Watering in the early morning or late evening when temperatures and wind speeds are the lowest will reduce water loss through evaporation. Check with your local water management to find out about water restrictions but normally in the Southwest Florida areas you can water twice a week and the recommended irrigation times average about 30 to 45 minutes. You might want to lower this during high rainfall seasons.
MOWING – The higher the grass, the more extensive the root system becomes. Grass with deeper roots is more drought-resistant. If the grass is mowed very short, it will put most of its energy into growing new leaf blades, and less energy into growing a root system (root system will be shallow). So don’t mow your lawn too short.
