Raleigh Lawn Maintenance and Mowing Guide

When it comes to taking care of your lawn in North Carolina, there’s a whole list of things you need to know. Sure you could just mow it once a month and let the rainfall water it, but you’ll likely end with a yard that’s not a pretty sight. Or, perhaps the lawn care services you ordered isn’t doing an excellent job. In order to care for your lawn and maintain it as best as possible, you’ll want to follow the following tips as close as you can. Your lawn will thank you.

Mowing Your Lawn in Raleigh

The basics of lawn mowing are just about the same everywhere. Before you mow, you'll want to make sure to clean up the yard of any debris that can damage the mower. In Raleigh, you’ll want to mow in the late evening because the hot North Carolina sun will stress your grass out during the day. Mowing late in the day will give your lawn a full chance to recover overnight. Though avoid grass cutting a wet lawn in the morning, because it can create ruts in your yard from the mower and is likely to make your grass bleed chlorophyll and stain adjacent sidewalks. It’s easier to injure yourself mowing on wet grass.

Mow your grass anywhere from 2 to 4 times a month unless your specific grass type requires otherwise. Make sure your mower blades are sharp as well, dull blades will rip and tear your grass, making it more vulnerable to insects and disease. If you’re afraid of sharpening your own blades, have lawn care professionals help you out. You’ll want to leave behind some grass clippings every now and again after you’re done lawn mowing. They will decompose quickly into the lawn and fertilize it with precious nitrogen to give you that truly green lawn.

Watering Your Lawn in Raleigh

Watering your lawn can be done with a simple garden hose or a sprinkler/irrigation system. As part of your lawn maintenance routine, you should water it early in the morning or late evening so the midday sun doesn’t dry up all the water before it sinks down to the roots. Raleigh can get pretty hot during the day compared to other places in the US. There are no watering restrictions right now but you should check every now and then to see if any have been placed on your county or region.

Common Lawn Pests in Raleigh

Chinch Bugs – These are one of the most common lawn pests in America, can be easily identified by parting your grass and observing for the white larvae. Dead and yellowed grass is a common symptom of a chinch bug infestation.

White Grubs – These can be found underneath the soil and are the offspring of a variety of beetles and other insects. They begin feeding on the roots of your grass when they hatch and can be checked for by lifting up a section of grass to examine for grubs or signs of damage caused by grubs.

One good way to check for an infestation of insects of any kind is to mark off a 1 square yard area in your yard, mix 2 fl oz of dishwashing soap inside 4 gallons of water, and spray the marked off area thoroughly. The insects will rise to the surface but will disappear back into the soil after 5 or 10 minutes, so be sure to keep a close eye on the area.

Common Weeds and Lawn Diseases in Raleigh

Though all of the grasses mentioned above are decently resistant to weeds and diseases, there are some you should still watch out for. Here is a link to a long list of weeds you might find in your lawn or your garden in Raleigh, NC. Be proactive with your weed control and be sure to remove any weeds as soon as you notice them. You can also use mulching to suppress weeds.

Some of the most common lawn diseases in Raleigh are things like ground pearl, brown patch, dollar spot, and large patch disease If you suspect you have any of the above diseases or weed infestations, your best option might be to call in a lawn service professional to handle the problem.

Hiring Lawn Care Services in Raleigh, NC

Raleigh and the rest of the Triangle area has dry weather, and rain is infrequent. Caring for a lawn under this weather is challenging. You have to force yourself to either wake up early in the morning to water, before the sun radiates too much heat, or do so after work when the sun is down. Many Raleigh residents don’t put up with this, which is why a popular choice has been hiring a lawn care service professional. Beyond just grass cutting, professional lawn care services offer important maintenance services that range from edging and weeding to aeration and fertilization. Some landscaping companies even offer landscape maintenance like hedge trimming and mulch application. It’s also wise in general to have an expert evaluate how much lawn maintenance your property needs. Additionally, there are several good tips to keep in mind when choosing a lawn care service in Raleigh.

The first one is to hire an actual lawn service professional, not your neighbor’s teenage son or someone who only provides a truck and a mower. This way you can ensure high-quality suggestions and that hard work is actually done. Although hiring amateurs may seem smart and stingy, their lack of expertise will result in a neglected and unprepared lawn in the long-term, such as failing to identify diseases and pests early. The second tip is to hire fully-insured lawn care professionals. This will free you from any anxiety in case a pro causes property damage. Finally, you should consider organizing your neighbors together and request a bulk discount from a lawn care company. A landscaping company will likely offer lower prices if several jobs can be finished with just one trip to a neighborhood because they generate more profit from the time saved on their schedules. Furthermore, landscapers are held to greater accountability for their work quality since you and your neighbors will be able to compare how your lawn looks afterward.

Make sure to check with your local lawn care service provider if you need services done in the greater Triangle area including Cary, Durham, and Chapel Hill.
