Bring Your Damaged Lawn Back to Life

Has all the extra rain left your lawn oversaturated? Don’t worry — all isn’t lost! We’ve compiled a few tips to assist you with restoring your lawn and preventing it from getting more damaged throughout the season.
- Don’t walk on your grass. Walking on wet soil can lead to soil compaction and prevent air from getting to the grass roots.
- Only mow dry grass. Rain and morning dew can weigh on grass, making the blades bend and a straight cut difficult. Additionally, wet, freshly cut grass is more susceptible to disease.
- Remove weeds. When you’re fertilizing your lawn, it’s important to make sure there are no weeds because they can overpower the healthy grass. The best way to remove weeds is by hand so you don’t damage your turf.
- Water correctly. Lawns should be watered deeply (one inch of water) about once a week. Irrigating your lawn with a small amount of water frequently, or overwatering your lawn, can result in weak, damaged grass roots.
- Reseed your lawn. While most lawns can be restored, there are times when the damage goes too far and reseeding is necessary. Our professionals can patch areas or your lawn or completely reseed it. Learn more about our seeding and sodding services.
