Beautiful Day!!

MRW Office Sign

It’s a beautiful day here at MRW Lawns, Inc. The low humidity and nice temperatures allow for some good drying after the torrential storms on Saturday. Enjoy it while it lasts, and be sure not to let the lawn get too tall. Now, it is important not to mow when the soil saturated, but try not to let it get too tall, and mow it twice if you have to to remove excess growth (for example; the lawn gets to 7″ and you want to mow it to 3″). It is important to understand that you will severely stress the lawn if you remove too much at one time. Also, a lawn that is too tall will hold excess moisture and that will aggravate disease pressure. Be sure to follow good maintenance practices to insure your lawn makes it through the tough summer.
