Summer Is Almost Upon Us! – Lawn Tips

The weather has already heated up and the lawn mowers have been humming along for several weeks now.

Here are some tips for helping your lawn look great this year…

Lawn Care Tip 1 – One-Third Rule
Removing more than 1/3 of the grass blade will stress out your lawn. If you cut or take out too much of the grass blade, your lawn will have a difficult time thriving and will instead look burnt out.

Lawn Care Tip 2 – Highest Acceptable Height
When you have long grass blades, your roots will grow deeper. Grass that has deeper roots will withstand drought and oppose pests and diseases.

Lawn Care Tip 3 – Sharp Mower Blades
Your lawn’s appearance is enhanced by sharp mower blades. Cleaner cuts of grass are provided by sharp blades. Grass will be able to recover from mowing faster when it is cut by sharp blades.

Lawn Care Tip 4 – Apply Fertilizer
Use fertilizer to get a healthy, green lawn. You have to apply fertilizer at the right time to get the best results.

Lawn Care Tip 5 – Deal with Weeds, Insects and Diseases
Brown circles or dry areas around your lawn means that you might have a problem. As problems travel under the soil, big circles called brownouts caused by fungal disease or insects leave a line of traceable dead grass.

Lawn Care Tip 6 – Deep Watering
Deep (rather than shallow) lawn watering is encouraged to grow deeper roots. One inch of water to 12 inches of soil is the preferred ratio for watering actively growing grass. Watering your lawn every three days is better than watering a few minutes every day.

Lawn Care Tip 7 – Check Your Irrigation System
For proper turf watering, test your irrigation system. One suggestion is to place five straight-sided pans around your lawn. When you turn your irrigation system on, take note of how long it takes for one inch of water to accumulate. Check to see if all the pans get the same amount of water. You might need to adjust the amount or distance of your lawn’s sprinkler heads.

Have You Experienced Issues With Vandalism Or Pranks?

There have been more reports of suspicious activity reported this week.

Last evening, several youths were spotted poking around a parked van on a cul-de-sac, and at a later time, one was caught ringing doorbells and then running off. The Sherrif’s department and a few parents were involved.

In the past month, several homeowners have experienced monetary damage due to homes being egged, vehicle damage, and more. This needs to end NOW.

As a community, it may be time that we organize a Neighborhood Watch program. Please indicate if you are in favor of starting a crime watch group here at Hunter’s Mill by selecting the appropriate choice below. If you are interested in helping, please let us know in the comments. We’d also like to know if you have been a victim of any of these events.

Entrance Sign Light

The entrance sign light has been repaired. The landscaping company sliced the power cord with their trimmer, and needed to replace the power cable. Thank you to Diana at Kornerstone for keeping on the landscape company to repair it!
