Managing Your Sprinklers

On the surface, your lawn is a place of respite and relaxation. In fact, that green expanse is actually the most resource intensive part of your landscape. Your lawn requires more water than any other part of your garden but too much or too little water can damage it. With effective planning, your garden will be watered to coordinate the soil type, the seasons, your lifestyle, the type of grass, and your local watering ordinances, if any. We can develop Lawn Optimization Plan that will provide you with the lawn you want.

In essence, proper lawn watering and maintenance ‘trains’ the lawn to search for the deepest water, promoting roots to grow downward, thus strengthening the lawn. Frequent watering actually promotes shallow root growth and promotes the growth of weeds such as crabgrass.
