Tips From Richard: Lawn Aeration

Tue, 09/02/2014 - 1:30pm -- WCVE

Schedule a core aerator for your lawn. Normal summer rain and heat tend to bake our soils resulting in a compacted lawn. Aeration with a core aerator will loosen the soil and allow moisture to soak in rather than run off. Whether you do-it-yourself or hire a contractor, aeration will help strengthen your lawn.

Tips From Richard: Lawn Mower Blade Care

Tue, 08/19/2014 - 1:45pm -- WCVE

Sharpen your lawn mower blade, or have it sharpened. A full summer of regular mowing will dull even the best mower blades. Often replacing the blade is a better alternative to sharpening as we head into the fall mowing season. A sharp blade produces a cleaner cut and is less damaging to grass plants.

This is a great time to dig into your bulb catalogs or visit your favorite garden center to order bulbs for planting this fall. Crocus, daffodils and tulips planted this fall will reward you with great color early next spring. Ordering now will insure you’ll get the varieties you want in time for planting in the fall.
