Spring is finally in the air, and that means we here at Advanced Irrigation are busier than ever. As one of the most popular lawn care services in Elk River, we are often asked the same questions about lawn care and our lawn care services. Here are the ones we hear the most frequently, as well as our responses.

Q: Why is aeration so important? Why is this one of the most important types of lawn care services?

A: In terms of lawn care services, aeration is important because it leads to healthier and stronger grass. Aeration loosens up the soil and allows air and water to penetrate deeper into the root of the grass. The grass will end up being stronger and your grass will look thicker and nicer.

Q: When is the best time of day to water my lawn?

A: Usually the morning is the best time of day to water your lawn. If you water during the afternoon, too much of the water might evaporate. If you water overnight, it could lead to mold growth and other problems like that.

Q: How long should I wait to mow my lawn after your lawn care services apply weed control?

A: We usually recommend that you wait between 24 and 48 hours. This allows the weeds to absorb the weed control products that we use.

Q: What length should I mow my grass at, and about how often should I mow my grass?

A: You usually want to mow your grass to be about 3 inches in length. This keeps your grass looking nice and tidy without damaging the grass’ roots and affecting the root depth. After you are done mowing, you should take the time to water your grass if you don’t have an irrigation system installed. You should aim to mow about once a week or when your lawn needs it. The more you mow and the longer you keep your grass, the better your grass will look.

Q: What do your lawn care services provide?

A: Advanced Irrigation’s lawn care services cover everything from irrigation system design, installation, repair and service to landscaping, fertilizing, snow removal and more. We can help both residential and commercial customers with all of their lawn care services.
