Lawn Tips


Watering can bring your lawn out of dormancy, however if not done right can cause more damage.  If you choose to water, do so very early in the morning before the sun and wind become stronger and more direct.  Also, watering less frequently and deep (high water volume) is better than frequently and shallow (low water volume).  If you step on your grass and the blades don’t spring back up, your grass needs watering.



Raising the mower deck to three inches by checking the grass height with a ruler versus going by the mower gauge will help make a less stressful micro climate in your lawn.  This keeps the grass healthier by creating cooler soil temperatures and less evaporation of crucial water due to the increased shading of the soil.  Higher mowing also allows your grass to concentrate on a deeper root system rather than trying to quickly replace the grass blades that have been cut off.  Another tip for mowing is the 1/3 rule; never cut off more than 1/3 of the new growth at a time.  You want to avoid cutting more than a third due to the increased stress put on the grass.  Also, changing the direction of mowing will provide a more even cut.  Grass blades will grow more erect and less likely to develop into a set pattern.  Homeowners should expect to sharpen their mower blades several times during the mowing season or if you let us mow your lawn we sharpen the blades on our primary mowers daily.

    Jeff Blevins
  • I have been a customer of Ritzel Lawn Care for four years. I tried other lawn care companies but they are not as courteous and professional as the Ritzel Lawn Care team. I have received compliments on my lawn and landscaping from relatives and friends and acquaintances. I am well pleased with the quality and performance of the Ritzel Lawn Care team and will continue being a customer.

  • I have been lucky enough to Find Ritzel Lawn Care for help over the past 11 years. I have a corner lot and get tons of compliments on my Landscaping and follow up care. My neighbors tell me I have the nicest yard in the area. Thanks Matthew for you constant attention.
