Lawn Care

The frequency of lawn mowing depends on various factors such as grass type, growth rate, and weather conditions. As a general guideline, we recommend mowing your lawn every 7-10 days during the active growing season to maintain an optimal height of around 2-3 inches. However, our experts at Legacy Lawns can assess your specific lawn and provide personalized recommendations for a healthy and well-manicured yard.

Timing is crucial when it comes to fertilizing your lawn. Typically, we recommend fertilizing in early spring when the soil temperature reaches around 55-60°F and grass starts actively growing. Additionally, a fall application helps strengthen the roots and prepare the grass for winter. Our knowledgeable team at Legacy Lawns can evaluate your lawn's condition, consider local climate factors, and determine the ideal timing and fertilizer blend for your specific needs.

Weed prevention starts with maintaining a healthy, thick turf that naturally crowds out weeds. Regular watering, proper mowing height, and appropriate fertilization are key components. Additionally, we recommend pre-emergent weed control treatments that form a barrier, preventing weed seeds from germinating. Our team at Legacy Lawns can develop a comprehensive weed control plan tailored to your lawn's needs to keep unwanted plants at bay.

Bare patches in a lawn can be caused by various factors such as heavy foot traffic, pet damage, or disease. To improve the appearance, we recommend overseeding with a suitable grass seed blend and applying a thin layer of compost or topsoil to enhance seed germination. Adequate watering and ongoing maintenance are essential for successful establishment. Our experts at Legacy Lawns can assess the condition of your lawn and provide guidance on the best approach to address bare patches.

Water conservation is important, and there are several practices you can implement. Consider watering your lawn deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry between watering sessions. Adjust your irrigation system to minimize overspray onto hardscapes or non-landscaped areas. Using smart irrigation technologies like soil moisture sensors and weather-based controllers can optimize water usage. Our team at Legacy Lawns can assess your irrigation system, recommend efficient practices, and help you achieve a healthy lawn while conserving water resources.


The frequency of watering your lawn depends on various factors such as soil type, grass type, and weather conditions. As a general guideline, we recommend watering your lawn 1-2 times per week, providing approximately 1 inch of water each time. However, it's important to adjust the watering schedule based on rainfall and the specific needs of your lawn. Our experts at Legacy Lawns can evaluate your lawn and provide customized watering recommendations for optimal health and water efficiency.

Regular maintenance and inspection of your sprinkler system are essential to ensure efficient operation. Check for any leaks, clogged nozzles, or misaligned sprinkler heads. Adjust the spray patterns to avoid watering sidewalks or driveways. Additionally, consider scheduling seasonal tune-ups, including checking the system's pressure, adjusting sprinkler head heights, and inspecting the controller settings. Our skilled technicians at Legacy Lawns can perform routine maintenance and repairs to keep your sprinkler system functioning at its best.

Absolutely! Several water conservation options are available for your sprinkler system. Consider installing a rain sensor that automatically shuts off the system when it detects rainfall. Weather-based smart controllers adjust watering schedules based on local weather conditions, preventing overwatering. Additionally, upgrading to more efficient sprinkler heads, such as rotary nozzles or drip irrigation, can significantly reduce water usage. At Legacy Lawns, we can assess your current system, recommend water-saving options, and help you achieve a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective irrigation solution.

Achieving uniform coverage with a sprinkler system requires proper design and regular adjustments. Start by ensuring that the sprinkler heads are positioned correctly and have the appropriate spray pattern for your landscape. Fine-tune the spray distance and arc to avoid overspray and gaps in coverage. Periodically check for any obstructions that may block the water distribution. If you're experiencing dry or overwatered areas, our experienced team at Legacy Lawns can conduct a system audit, make necessary adjustments, and recommend strategies for achieving consistent and efficient irrigation coverage.

We recommend scheduling your sprinkler blowout in the late fall, before freezing temperatures set in. This timing allows us to remove water from your system while it's still operational, preventing potential damage during the winter months.


Enhancing curb appeal begins with a well-thought-out landscape design. Consider incorporating a mix of colorful plants, trees, and shrubs that complement your property's architecture. Install hardscape elements such as walkways, decorative borders, or a focal point like a water feature. Proper lighting can also accentuate key areas. Our skilled team at Legacy Lawns can assess your property, discuss your preferences, and create a tailored landscaping plan to elevate your curb appeal and make a lasting impression.

Low-maintenance landscaping can still be visually appealing and functional. Opt for native plants that are well-suited to the local climate and require minimal watering and upkeep. Incorporate mulch or ground covers to suppress weed growth and conserve soil moisture. Install efficient irrigation systems like drip irrigation to minimize water usage. Our knowledgeable team at Legacy Lawns can recommend suitable low-maintenance plant selections, design elements, and sustainable practices that will reduce maintenance needs while still creating a beautiful landscape.

Landscaping can be an effective way to create privacy and seclusion. Consider planting tall trees, shrubs, or hedges strategically along property boundaries or near outdoor living areas. Incorporate trellises or pergolas with climbing plants to create natural screens. Install fencing or decorative privacy panels as additional options. Our experienced team at Legacy Lawns can evaluate your property, assess your privacy needs, and design a customized landscaping plan that ensures both functionality and aesthetic appeal while providing the desired level of privacy.

Tree Care

The ideal time to plant trees depends on the tree species and the local climate. Generally, the fall and spring seasons are favorable for tree planting. In the fall, the soil is still warm, promoting root establishment before winter sets in. Spring planting allows trees to take advantage of the warm weather and longer growing season. However, with proper care and watering, trees can be planted successfully throughout the year. Our tree care experts at Legacy Lawns can provide guidance on the best time and tree species for planting based on your specific location and requirements.

Regular tree trimming and pruning are essential for maintaining healthy and aesthetically pleasing trees. As a general rule, trees should be pruned yearly depending on the amount of dead or diseased branches on them. This improves structure and maintains their overall health. However, certain factors such as tree species, growth rate, and specific objectives may require more frequent pruning.

The frequency of fence line tree and foliage clean-up depends on the growth rate of the trees and vegetation along your fence line. It is generally recommended to schedule clean-up at least once or twice a year, preferably in the spring and fall. This will keep the area neat and well-maintained. However, specific factors such as tree species and proximity to structures or power lines may require more frequent clean-up. Our expert team at Legacy Lawns can assess your fence line vegetation, provide recommendations, and perform regular clean-up.
