Give your lawn the hydration it needs to grow strong during the spring months. Water your lawn with an irrigation system and know when the best time to water is.

Just like too little water is harmful, so is too much water, so take time to determine the most effective irrigation routine. If you don't have an irrigation system in place yet contact Custom Turf and we can install one for you.

Mow Your Grass on a Higher Setting

As you start to cut your grass, make sure to mow higher than normal during the springtime. Keeping grass blades higher is smart during this time of the year to create a barrier against future weed growth. As well as mowing higher, you’ll also want to mow more frequently.
