GRASS CARE TIPS

When it comes to sharing lawn secrets, the first one on
many garden experts' lips is mowing height. "Most people
mow their lawns way too short, which stresses out the
grass.  Raising the mower to higher positions so you're
mowing only the top third of the grass when you cut. Taller
grass promotes better root development,  as well as
shading the ground so it doesn't dry out as fast. An added
benefit: the taller grass blocks the sun that weed seeds
require to germinate. And don't believe for a moment that
leaving grass taller is going to mean mowing more often..
There's a big misunderstanding that a lot of people have
that if they cut it shorter, they won't have to mow it as
often. But that's absolutely false; it renews itself so fast
that it doesn't save you any time.

Prep the Surface
A successful paint job starts with properly
preparing the surface you're going to paint.
That means you must scrape, sand, patch,
and fill every hole, crack, dent, and surface
imperfection. This isn't the fun part of
painting a room, but it is the most
important part. No paint, regardless of its
cost, color, thickness, or manufacturer's
claims, will hide a pockmarked or cracked
surface.

Priming walls
and ceilings is mandatory whenever you're
painting new drywall or painting over a dark
color. But it's smart to prime any time you
paint. Primer serves three main functions.
First, it blocks stains from bleeding
through. Second, it allows one-coat
coverage for the paint. Third, and most
important, it improves paint adhesion,
which greatly reduces blisters and peeling.

Professional painters will often tint the
primer toward the finished color by mixing a
small amount of topcoat paint into the
primer. This trick greatly enhances the
ability of the topcoat to completely hide the
primed surface.

You can now buy paints that contain
primers, but nothing covers as well or
improves adhesion as much as a dedicated
primer.

Don't mow more than 1/3 of the grass blade at
each cutting.  This is very important to your
helps shade out weeds, thus reducing the
amount of chemicals needed.
Mulch if possible.  It is only necessary to
remove lawn clippings if you are cutting more
than 1/3 of the grass blade or if the clippings
will smother the lawn.  Make it a practice to
recycle the clippings back into the lawn.  
This will add a natural fertilizer to your lawn
and will reduce the amount of artificial
fertilizer that your lawn needs.
Mow more often in the spring.  Your lawn will
grow at a more rapid rate in the spring, when
temperatures are moderate and at a slower
rate when the weather is hot or cold.
Keep lawn mower blades sharp. The straight
cut of a sharp blade allows your lawn to heal
quickly and beautifully.  However, a dull
blade makes a jagged, torn cut.  This can
lead to several problems:
1.  This wounded tissue can give way to
disease.
2.  The lawn will have an "off-color"
appearance.
3.  The dull blade can reduce the life of the
mower by causing it to work harder.
Try to mow when the lawn is dry.  Lawns look
neatest when the grass blades are dry before
mowing.


TIPS ON AERATION

Aeration is the removal of cores of soil from
the lawn. These cores are left on top of the
lawn and are eventually dispersed back into
the soil by mowing, rain, etc. Aeration is
beneficial to your lawn in the following ways:
1.  Aeration helps overcome compacted soil.
-- Generally, Arkansas soils tend to be very
compacted.  All this compacted soil makes it
hard for the roots of your grass to grow and
limits the movement of air, moisture, and
fertilizer through the soil.
2.  Aeration helps reduce water requirements.
-- Water penetration is increased and water
run-off is reduced.
3.  Aeration helps your lawn develop a deep
root system.  A lawn with a deep root system
will be healthier and better able to tolerate
drought, disease and stress.
