Efficient Maintenance 101: Keep Your Lawn Green without Water Overuse
A green lawn says volumes about the interest you take in the maintenance and curb appeal of your home. When properly maintained, grass can flourish and remain healthy, green, and growing without excessive maintenance, water, fertilizer, or reseeding. At Sergios Lawn Services, we are dedicated to providing unparalleled lawn care to our customers and giving them a priceless area in which to play, create memories, and share the beauty nature has to offer. With our help, you can keep your lawn green without overusing valuable resources like water. Here are some simple tips to help you out along the way.
Water in the Morning
The illusion that watering is watering and can be done effectively at any time during the day is false. The most efficient and effective time to water your lawn is first thing in the morning, before the sun rises. This allows the water to saturate the ground and be soaked up by the grass before quickly evaporating due to the sun’s hot rays. Often, you may find that you don’t need to water as much when you do it in the wee hours of the morning because the water will take a longer time to evaporate so it takes less time to saturate the ground.
Abide by County Ordinances
Many counties put water ordinances and restrictions in place to help homeowners monitor their water usage. This helps to avoid overuse and is important to ensure there is enough water to go around. At Sergios Lawn Services we also take these ordinances into regard when planning a watering system for your property. Whether it is automatically timed or not, we make every effort to abide by the law to ensure the preservation of this precious resource.
Let the Grass Grow
Longer grass isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it has many environmental benefits including the fact that it provides protection against the sun’s rays. Additionally, longer grass retains more moisture which means water evaporates slower. With our dependable lawn maintenance, we can help you keep longer grass without it getting out of control or looking like an eyesore. Our equipment and methods for maintenance are useful in that your lawn will remain manicured and symmetrical even when the grass grows longer.
Seek Professional Assistance
One of the best things you can do is to enlist professional help in Peoria. We have the tools and experience to design and install a watering system that is unique to the plants growing on your property.
