At Turco Landscaping and Construction, we take lawn maintenance very seriously. To us, a lush green turf grass, free of weeds and disease, serves as a dramatic backdrop to the other facets of the landscape. Proper mowing techniques are the first task associated with creating such a beautiful, lush lawn.
Mowing performed at the correct height and frequency is essential to the health and density of the stand. Removing leaf tips induces plants to form new sprouts, increasing stand density. Keys to good mowing include: sharp blades, proper mowing height, avoid mowing when wet, avoid mowing during extended periods of drought, mow in straight, over-lapping lines, avoid similar patterns to prevent ruts, and don’t blow clippings into the plants!
Edging hard and soft edges is a vital part of weekly lawn maintenance. We prefer a vertical edge on our soft edges, and we sometimes alternate on a weekly basis to maintain desired bed dimension. Hard edging is performed most weeks, with the exception of winter months when growth is limited.
Our crews are uniformed, insured, and thoroughly trained and cross-trained in all the equipment they use. They operate efficiently and effectively, but always with an eye to the specific needs and requests of each client.
