Yard and Lawn Care Tips

Well it is that time of the year again to start getting that lawn back to it's color. For best results, use a high grade fertilizer. JEA allows for watering twice a week, however, it may be necessary to hand water "dry spots" or "hot spots" as they occur. Set your mower to the highest setting possible. This will give your lawn plenty of growth from the root system. Cutting your lawn too short could cause the root system to dry out and die. Keeping your lawn weed free will promote proper growth and will help to insure that most of the water is being absorbed by the grass and not by the weeds. Proper edging and trimming always enhances the curb appeal of a healthy lawn. A new survey conducted by finds that 75% of Americans believe the most important factor in determining a neighborhood's safety is the up-keep of surrounding homes, especially the conditions of the front lawns, which trumps even Googling neighborhood statistics to get a feel for a community.
