Crucial Cultural Tools
The key to a healthy thick lawn with reduced pest control applications is to implement good cultural practices. This includes:
- Maintain a mow height of 3” – 4”. Remove no more than 1/3 of the leaf blades height
- Keep mower blade sharp
- Keep the root zone moist but not saturated
- Core aerate 1-2 times per season
- Broadcast or slice seed annually to replace lost grass plants and fill thin areas
