Established Lawn Care

After 30 days, your lawn should be well rooted and ready to be maintained as an existing lawn.

  • Water at least 1 inch of water a week in two waterings.
  • Mow as necessary to maintain a 2 3/4″ – 3″ height.


The three most important elements for a healthy lawn are nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These elements promote root growth, provide color and give your lawn vigorous growth. Every bag of fertilizer will have three numbers prominently displayed that indicate the percentages of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Always read recommended application rates and follow instructions when fertilizing.

First Feeding: The first feeding should be between April 15th and May 1st depending on the type of spring we have. Typically a pre-emergent is applied at this time to control crabgrass.

Second Feeding: The second feeding should be applied around Memorial Day. This will help keep your lawn green during the hot summer months.

Third Feeding: The third feeding should be 10-14 days on either side of Labor Day. This will get your lawn back in top shape from the summer months.

Fourth Feeding: The fourth feeding is for winterizing. This is one of the most important fertilizations and will ensure nutrients throughout the winter and into the spring as your turf comes out of dormancy.
