A healthy lawn benefits everyone – you, as the home or business owner, your neighbors, overall property value, and the environment. But achieving a healthy, vibrant lawn is hard work. For your grass to be at its best, it requires nourishment and protection against damaging weeds.
With our semi-arid and extreme variability in weather conditions here in Colorado Springs, providing a one size fits all technique for lawn care is almost impossible. That’s why at Green Vision, our lawn care is customized to fit the needs of each customer. Our team is highly knowledgeable about the different types of grasses and soils that make up our local landscapes. Green Vision offers a comprehensive and effective six-step program that combines the right nutrients and weed control in the appropriate quantities at the correct times. The first and last applications always contain granular fertilizer, but applications can be altered to fit each customer’s unique landscape needs.
In the fall, we apply a late fall fertilizer application. This helps to retain moisture and maintain the nutrients in the soil throughout the winter. In the spring, it will help your turf to bounce back from dormancy faster and healthier.
Is your residential or commercial lawn in desperate need of repairs or a makeover? No need to worry. The experts at Green Vision specialize in complete lawn renovations. We offer a highly-effective lawn renovation that restores the health and life back into your roots, improving the overall look and feel of your lawn.
There are pros and cons to mowing high or low. Cutting high at about three inches can save water. It also helps the water reach deeper into the roots providing them with moisture needed to recover from stress. Unfortunately, it can also invite a variety of lawn diseases and different types of fungus.
On the other hand, mowing low requires more water but can have a neat and clean appearance. It also reduces the risk of fungus and disease. Due to the lack of precipitation Colorado Springs receives and our local water restrictions, at Green Vision, we recommend mowing your turf at the higher level of three inches.
Most lawn diseases occur due to improper irrigation. Here in Colorado Springs, our semi-arid climate often prevents our lawn and plants from getting enough water. That’s why it’s extremely important to keep your turf watered properly and adequately. During the warmer months, we suggest that you water twice per day, three days per week. Customers who have drip and micro-spray heads should water once per day at a maximum of 30 minutes per cycle. Customers who own programmable timers should focus on watering the root zone for 20 minutes per day. No matter what type of irrigation system you have, always be careful not to overwater.
