Frequently Asked Questions
When is the best time to start service? The answer is anytime. In our area, we have a year-round growing season and there is always something that needs done to the lawn.

What is the best grass to plant in my yard? This is a loaded question. The four main grasses used in our area are - Centipede, Bermuda, St Augustine and Zoysia. There are pros and cons to using each of these grasses. Give our office a call and schedule a free consultation to help determine which grass would be best for your home lawn.

How high should I set my mower blade?
A good rule of thumb is as follows: Centipede, Bermuda and Zoysia all prefer a low cut. These grasses should be mowed at 1 ½”. They should not be allowed to get taller than 2”. St Augustine is the only grass in this area that prefers a longer cut – 3” or higher is recommended. Also, be sure to keep your mower blade sharp, mow often and never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf blade during a mowing.

How often should I water? This will be determined by a lot of factors – grass type, time of year and of course weather. TLC tries to emphasize that setting your sprinkler on automatic and forgetting about it is a bad thing for your lawn and it’s bad for the environment. Our rule of thumb is to water infrequently but for long durations. Allow the lawn to dry out between irrigation cycles; this will reduce disease activity. Most home lawns need to be watered 1-2 times a week for 45 minutes per zone during the growing season (May – August). October thru April, lawns need very little if any irrigation.
