Reduce the stress
on your lawn

No two lawns are the same – even if they are side by side. Differences such as: type of soil, grass variety, the amount of sun, the facing of the lawn and the number of shade trees all affect the condition of the lawn. These differences, (not to mention the weather), play a major part in determining what a lawn needs to stay healthy. As we enter into another dry summer with new watering restrictions, there are methods all homeowner can use to reduce the stress on their lawns. Grass, just like any plant, can be ‘trained’ to help it deal with the environment.
  • The first step in this is to get your lawn to grow deeper roots. This can be done by soaking the root zone to a depth of 6 inches. Unfortunately, this does not happen simply by watering your yard.

  • To ensure good moisture depth, water until the soil is moist but not saturated and let that watering soak in. Then add more water to push the moisture deeper into the root zone. This will take some experimentation to figure out how much water your soil requires to be moist to a depth of 6 inches. But it’s worth the energy because your grass will have deeper, more drought tolerant roots.

  • Good mowing practices can also help lawns be more water efficient. Mow often enough so that only one-third of the grass blade is removed. Do not always mow in the same direction; this will keep the blades of grass more upright and allow for better air circulation. The recommended mowing height for lawns in our area is 2½ to 3 inches. Grass cut lower than that needs more water and is also more susceptible to weeds and disease.

  • Aeration is one of the most important ways of improving a lawn’s water efficiency. It not only reduces soil compaction, it also lets air, nutrients and water into the soil. Aerating is easiest when the soil is moist. Leave the plugs on top of the soil; do not rake them up. As they break down they add organic matter and nutrients back into the soil. Plugs do not have to be super deep: ¾ of an inch to 1½ inches is plenty to relieve upper level compaction and allow for better moisture penetration.

  • Revive treatments are another way to help with moisture penetration into the soil. Revive also helps the roots uptake what water is available in the soil. It also helps to “free up” essential nutrients that may be tied up in the soil and makes them available to the plants. At this point, with having only two days a week to water, a full revive program is recommended to keep your lawn at the peak of health and efficiency.

Meet Joanne Ristau

We are pleased to introduce Joanne (“Jo”) Ristau, pictured here with her daughter Jennifer.

Joanne joined our team in April 2011 as our Landscape and Irrigation office manager. She brings a wealth of experience to our company with over 40 years of service in the construction industry. Joanne says, “Jobs that had the most impact on my career were with Saunders Construction from 1990-1998 developing policies and procedures and assisting the estimating department as PCS Administrator. I was an Assistant Project Manager/Safety Manager/Warranty Manager for Multi Family Mixed Use Projects from 2000 to 2009 for a local Design Build Architectural Firm in Denver called Buchanan Yonushewski Group."

Joanne moved to Colorado in 1972 and loved it so much she made it her permanent home. When she isn’t at work, Jo enjoys time with her family: her son Neal, daughter Jennifer and 5 grandchildren (ages 2 to 16). She also loves to read, watch movies and attend Scotch Tastings. Walking, swimming and Zumba round out her leisure time activities.

from Craig Little
Craig LittleAs we move through another damaging period of drought be sure to keep a close eye on your Spruce and Pine trees. We expect the pressure from IPS Engraver and Mountain Pine beetles to increase again in 2013. Stressed trees emit a pheromone that allows the beetles to target those trees. Let us know if you notice unusual levels of stress in your evergreen trees so we can stay ahead of this problem.
