Your lawn will look best when we work together. You play a huge role in having a healthy lawn.
1.) Be educated: Read our emails, invoices, and instructions. The more you understand, the better. If you have questions, ask us!
2.) Make sure your lawn is mowed properly: mow at a height of 3-4 inches. Make sure the mower blades are sharp and do not tear out grass. During the summer, you can leave lawn clippings to help retain moisture.
3.) Water the lawn: In Utah, watering a lawn correctly is vital. For proper watering techniques, read the following answers below.
4.) Be vigilant: Keep your eyes open for brown spots, potential fungus, heat stress, or insect damage. If you notice anything weird developing, snap a picture and text it to 435-200-3261 or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The earlier you catch a problem, the better chance we have of stopping it before it does real damage.
1) Check your irrigation. Run a manual test during the day and watch every zone to make sure that every section of your lawn is getting covered with water. Sprinklers should be checked monthly during the season. Heads often get damaged, blocked by objects or plants, and clogged with mud.
2.) In addition to watering 3 times a week for 30-45 minutes, run your sprinklers for a few minutes in the evening to help cool down the lawn.
3) Use a Soil Conditioner treatment. We have a product called Revive which, when combined with proper watering, can help to bring back the color of your lawn.
4.) Paint it. We have a non-toxic turf paint that we can be applied to stressed areas. The paint improves the look and color of the lawn until the natural green bounces back after the summer heat.
Summer – On average, 3 times a week for 30-45 minutes.
Spring/Fall – On average, 3 times a week for 20 minutes.
Wasatch Front – From mid March to the end of April
Heber/Midway – April
Park City – From mid April to mid May
Wasatch Front – Mid September to mid October
Heber/Midway – September to mid October
Park City – September
Naturally occurring fertilizer that is normally bound up inside bacteria is released and the lawn looks good. Over time you can use less and less fertilizer and more compost tea – which is natural, organic and sustainable.
We have a few sources. Our main source is brewed right here in Utah.
We use vortex brewers in our 60 + 100 gallon tanks. We use organic, worm compost from a local source. We add a few other inputs to make sure the tea is balanced with fungi and not to bacterial (this is what the lawns here generally need). After 24 hours we remove the tea (now full of life and biology) and apply it to your lawn. It has to be applied that day (after 5-6 hours off of aeration the organisms begin to die off) and then everything needs to be cleaned very well.
We run microscope test on the tea to make sure there is life and biology in the tea.
