Andora’s Tips for Lawn Maintenance

in New Rochelle, Larchmont, and Rye, NY

It’s essential to think seasonally when you’re keeping an eye on your grass. Home and business owners often remember of the more regular tasks – like mowing and watering – but neglect the bigger-picture upkeep that will protect your lawn in the long run. Andora’s guide for lawn care is divided into “seasonal” and “regular” tasks. By following Andora’s comprehensive guide, you can be sure that your lawn has both the upkeep and prevention handled.

Andora’s Seasonal Lawn Care Guide

Early April: Weed Control

Weed control should include a prescription for your specific soil type, grass species, weed types, and sprinkler configuration. Weeds should be treated depending on how they appear, i.e., before they surface or once they have emerged.

Late Spring: Fertilize

Applying a nitrogen-rich fertilizer transforms lawns from tired and pale patches to lush, thick, green swaths.

Mid-Summer: Insect Control

Bugs and insects can lay waste to the hard work you put into fertilizing and weeding. By chewing lawn blades and roots, these mighty mites can band together and take down an entire lawn.

Fall: Fertilize, Core Aerate & Seed Renovate

Core aeration is the process of manually pulling up plugs of soil from the lawn to increase deep oxygenation. This super oxygenation enhances root development and makes the seeding process more effective. Fertilization should be repeated in the fall.

Winter: Fertilize, Apply Lime

Organic lime should be applied to maintain soil PH for a healthy, well-conditioned lawn. Fertilization should be repeated in the winter.

Six Seasonal Applications April – September: Mosquito Control

Healthy lawns attract mosquitoes, but that doesn’t mean you have to let them stay. Andora offers organic, family-friendly methods of insect repellant that will ensure your lawn is in good shape and your health isn’t threatened.

Andora’s Regular Lawn Care Guide

Weekly: Watering, Mowing

It’s common to overdo watering. Depending on the weather, lawns need about an inch of water per week. You can determine how much water your lawn needs by purchasing an irrigation system with a built-in sensor, or by consulting Andora’s specialists. Mowing should be done following the ⅓ Rule: never cut more than a third of the length of a blade of your grass.

Bi-Monthly: Edging

Edging is an aesthetic exercise, but that doesn’t make it any less important than other lawn maintenance. Take the plunge and buy an edge trimmer to keep your lawn in ship shape.
