How To: Care for Your Lawn

Welcome to your Camden home! We understand that maintaining a vibrant and healthy lawn is a key part of making your living experience enjoyable. Here are some tips to help you take care of your lawn, specifically tailored to the unique climate of Texas & Oklahoma. 

  1. Watering Tips:

Texas can experience hot and dry conditions. To keep your lawn lush and green:

  • Water deeply: Ensure your lawn receives around 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week. 
  • Morning watering: Water in the early morning to reduce evaporation and allow the grass to absorb moisture. 

 

  1. Mowing Guidelines:

Proper mowing practices contribute to a well-maintained lawn: 

  • Regular mowing: Keep your grass at a height of 2.5 to 3 inches. 
  • Sharpen blades: Maintain sharp mower blades for clean cuts that promote grass health. 

 

  1. Fertilization Schedule:

A well-timed fertilization routine encourages strong and resilient grass: 

  • Spring and fall: Apply fertilizer during these seasons for optimal growth. 
  • Choose the right fertilizer: Select a fertilizer with a balanced nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (N-P-K) ratio. 

 

  1. Weed Control:

Preventing and managing weeds is crucial for a pristine lawn: 

  • Regular inspection: Keep an eye out for weeds and address them promptly. 
  • Use herbicides cautiously: If necessary, choose selective herbicides to target specific weeds without harming your grass. 

 

  1. Seasonal Considerations:

Adjust your lawn care routine based on the Texas seasons: 

  • Summer heat: Provide extra water during dry spells. 
  • Winter dormancy: Allow your grass to go dormant without excessive watering during winter.
