TURF TIPS

Still have questions?  Looking for more information about our turf?  Give us a call,  we would be more than happy to answer your questions.

01

​Take your time when preparing for your new turf.  You must have at least 6”-8” of good quality topsoil and you only have one shot at getting this step right!  This is where your turf roots will grow so make sure they’ll have room and sufficient nutrients.  

02

Less frequent, heavier waterings will encourage deeper turf roots, as they will instinctively grow deeper in search of more moisture.

 

 

03

Maintain a minimum mowing height of 2.5” for our Okanagan turf types.  Mow often, with a sharp mower blade, taking off no more than 1/3 of the leaf to avoid stressing the grass.

 

04

If you begin to notice any foreign plans such as broadleaf or weedy grasses, it is important to act quickly.  Be sure to remove weeds before they form seeds.  Poor quality topsoil, airborne seeds, animals and birdfeeders can all contribute to weed populations.

 

05

As temperatures begin to cool, your turfgrass will not require as much moisture as it did in the summer, adjust watering schedules on sprinkler systems according to your weather conditions.
