Sometimes it seems like the lawn is the simplest part of your landscaping. In fact, if has very specific care guidelines that must be followed or it can be a widespread issue. At Cunningham Lawn Care, we know grass well. We know what’s a wive’s tale and what’s true. That is what makes us such a trusted lawn service.
In today’s blog, we are going to share a few lawn myths that trip property owners up all the time.
WHEN GRASS IS CUT SHORT, IT DOESN’T HAVE BE CUT OFTEN
It is true that short-cut grass can go a few days longer without being cut. However, a few days extra isn’t worth sacrificing your entire lawn. Cutting a lawn too short weakens it and you could find yourself needing to replace the whole thing. We never remove more than one-third of the blade, which keeps lawns going strong for years.
I CAN AERATE MY LAWN SUFFICIENTLY WITH SPIKED SHOES
If you’re considering trying to save money by using spiked shoes to aerate your lawn, it’s not worth it. These spiked shoes compact more than anything else, and they won’t help your grass. The best thing they’re for is killing grubs. Plugs of soil need to be actually removed from the lawn in order to help it out. Get professional aeration from us!
