What does it take to have a Great Looking Lawn?
If you want your entire lawn to look wonderful all year long, you need to help nature. The first rule you need to know is “Great lawn care requires repetitive discipline to continuously satisfy the biological needs of the grass.
As you may know, your lawn is a living organism and is composed of individual grass plants with an extensive root system with runners. The health of your grass depends on what we call the essential life factors. A great looking lawn comes down to rigidly performing repeatable actions that cannot be postpone for very long. These actions further the essential life factors to keep the grass alive and growing.
5 Essential Life Factors of Grass
As previously stated the essential life factors allow your lawn to be green. These factors will also allow: flowers, shrubs, trees and landscape plants to grow and be healthy. The important essential life factors are:
- Disease Control
- Pest Control
Depriving your lawn of these essential life factors for just a short period puts your lawn at risk. Depriving your lawn of these factors for a long period will kill your grass. It is important to maintain a regular supply of these essential life factors by following the first rule of repetitive discipline.
Sunlight is a factor we cannot control, except by removing a layer of dead leaves or debris over the grass that prevents light from reaching the individual grass leaves. Sunlight allows the grass to perform the photosynthesis process that creates the energy to keep grass alive.
The lack of nutrients, disease control and pest control can eventually kill a lawn. Over time without the proper lawn care, the entire lawn will degrade. A degraded lawn can appear brownish eyesore with very little or no curb-appeal. Fortunately, Always Green can provide nutrients, disease control and pest control grass need to look beautiful by applying our customize lawn care treatment regularly.

In addition, other factors can inhibit the health of the grass. Here are 2 common inhibitors: the spill of toxic chemicals such as gasoline and dull lawn mower blades that shreds the grass leaves allowing it to be vulnerable to disease and insects.
Our Life Style and Lawn Care
Let’s face it, we are busy people. Whether it is working on our job, spending pleasurable time on a hobby, doing errands, going on vacation, relaxing to recover from stress or spending time with our family, we do not have the time to spend on regular lawn care chores.
Most normal busy folks perform do-it-yourself lawn care haphazardly and will neglect the labors required to keep the grass green and healthy. The lawn ends up with brown spots and dead areas because we did not perform the first rule of repetitive discipline. Repetitive discipline means performing the necessary tasks to ensure the essential life factors are in place and provided regularly.

Our Lawn Care Treatments
For our lawn treatments to work effectively, you must proper water your lawn within 48 hours after the application. Your lawn needs water regularly to keep it green, healthy and growing so your grass can use the nutrients and sunlight to stay alive. Your sprinkler system is the key to delivering water efficiently after and between treatments. Sprinkler heads must deliver water to all the right places of your yard on a programmed schedule.
The Fifth Essential Life Factor – Water
You may be thinking water is the essential life factor for all of life on earth. I would agree. Your grass is resilient and can endure the lack of water for short periods. There no denying it. Grass needs water on a regular basis. For the surrounding counties, the watering restriction is twice a day. Your irrigation control should be set for water 2 days a week for at least 30 minutes or more. If your sprinkler system malfunctions, your will be violating the first rule of repetitive discipline. You will see the effects in your grass. Brown spots and dead grass areas will start to appear and get larger.
Replacing dead grass with new fresh sod or plugs is an action that you can’t ignore. Before you re-sod or plug the areas of the dead spots, you must get your sprinklers repaired or you are just throwing away your money. Dead grass areas are breeding grounds for insects and weeds.
You must address these dead areas to keep them from spreading to the rest of your lawn that’s healthy and green. Always Green recommend Charlie’s Re-Sod when you decide to re-sod those dead areas. Also, we highly recommend you have your sprinkler system repaired, sprinkler heads adjusted and the complete system tested and checked out before you install any new sod or plugs. You can contact our friends ATZ Irrigation that do quality irrigation services to handle this for you.
Green Grass Requires a Working Sprinkler System
Your sprinkler system is a vital piece to your lawn’s ecosystem of the essential life factors to getting a green and healthy lawn. A failing sprinkler system is the first thing we look at when your lawn looks in bad shape. You must keep your sprinkler system in tip-top condition to deliver full water coverage as needed by your lawn.
