A beautiful green lawn is basically the envy of every neighborhood. If you’re a Killingsworth Lawn Kare customer, you know we’re experts in making your yard ‘gawk’ worthy to every passerby. Heck, Angie’s List even made us a Super Service Provider for 2013. An accolade we intend to keep for the foreseeable future.
If you have a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Package in your yard, you know that we partner together to get the most out of your landscape, and for you, partnering means mowing those tall blades of slender Fescue at 4 inches, and watering your lawn a MINIMUM of 1 inch of water per week.
What you may not have known is that when you water your yard, you have to do it in the morning, for best results. Who knew right?! Not just that, but it should be watered BEFORE 6AM. If you’re a parent of toddlers like me, that’s a tall order. No matter though. If we have any hope to be the greener grass on the ‘other side of the fence’, then we’ve got to set our coffee pots, brush the sleep out of our eyes, and turn on our sprinklers before the first rooster crows!
Think of it like this, your grandparents used to say “Don’t put the kids to bed with wet hair or we’ll get a cold.” It turns out, the same is true for your yard, accept when you put your lawn to bed wet, it’s going to develop a fungus called “Rhizoctonia”. Rhizoctonia is responsible for the dreaded “Brown Patch”. Brown Patch occurs when we water the yard too late in the evening, limiting the amount of water that would be evaporated.
Well, that settles it for me. For best possible lawns, we’ve got to get the sprinklers moving in the a.m., bed head, dragon breath, pink fuzzy slippers, and all! (We morning people have the advantage.)
There was a sweet lady walking her two poodles down the sidewalk this past Saturday while I was cutting my grass. She took the time to get my attention and stop me, saying “Your yard looks so beautiful.” “Thank you, ma’am!” I replied through my smile. It’s a Killingsworth Yard.
