Crucial Cultural Tools

The key to a healthly thick lawn with reduced pesticide applications is to implement good cultural practices. This includes:

  • Maintain a mow height of 3” – 4”. Remove no more then 50% of new growth
  • Keep mower blade sharp
  • Maintain moisture levels equivalent to 1” of rainfall per week
  • Core aerate 1-2 times per season
  • Broadcast or slice seed annually to replace lost grass plants and fill thin areas
