Lawn Tips
Majority of the properties in the Northern Virginia have Tall Fescue grass

TALL FESCUE

EXPOSURE: Full sun to partial sun

WATER NEEDS: Moderate – apply 1 to 2 “ of water as a deep soaking every 3 to 7 days to encourage a deep, healthy root system. Avoid frequent, shallow watering; this will result in a shallow root system and also permit weed germination and growth.

MOWING AND THATCHING: Optimum mowing height is between 2 ¾ to 3 ½ inches for a high quality lawn. Mow regularly with sharp blades. Never remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade at any one mowing. Tall Fescue forms very little thatch.
