I am amazed at the number of Southern Utah homes that have lush, green lawns. I moved into a new home in the Little Valley area of St. George from Farmington, Utah. I quickly started asking how we could maintain our new existing, green lawn. I spoke to our landscaper and my neighbors and these are the things they told me to do to keep my lawn green in this sunny, warm climate.
- Keep your grass cut regularly to prevent weeds
- Keep the blades on your lawn mower sharp, so that you are cutting your grass not tearing it
- Don’t cut your grass too short - removing more than 1/3 of the grass blade will stress out your lawn
- If your soil is tough, aerate it to loosen the ground
- Fertilize your lawn two
