How long should I water my lawn?
There are multiple factors to answer this question for your personal yard. A properly watered lawn will be more disease resistant. The rule of thumb is to water as deeply and infrequently as possible. Plus, the length of time and frequency will change over the course of the season depending on environmental factors. We also recommend watering between 10 pm and 6 am, if possible, to be more effective and reduce evaporation. Contact our office to schedule a FREE customized consultation.

How high should I cut my lawn?
Mowing in our valley can be a little different than other parts of the country. For our mowing customers our mowers are set at a height of 3 inches and we recommend no lower than 2 ½  inches for bluegrass and fescue lawns. Mowing too short can stress a lawn and a stressed lawn can be more susceptible to weeds, drought stress and disease.

When should I trim my shrubs?
Most shrubs can be trimmed any time of year, with some exceptions. Some of those exceptions are roses and lilacs. Overall a rule of thumb is most plant material should be trimmed while in winter dormancy as it put less stress on the plant and reduces the chance of fungus and insect damage.

How important is winter watering?
In the Grand Valley? VERY! Winter watering alleviates the drought stress on the root system of trees and shrubs. Without this stress plant material will come out of dormancy healthier and potentially more vibrant. Winter watering is for all ages of trees and shrubs.
