1. The best time to replace your lawn is in the spring, as plants get ready to bloom. False! The best time to sow seed is in the fall when the temperatures are more consistent and highly competitive weeds, like crabgrass, have gone dormant. When you sow your grass seeds in the spring, you’re setting yourself up for potential problems, as heat sets in during the summer months and weeds compete for space causing stress to your new plants.
2. Water new plants every day to prevent them from drying out. False! Over watering your plans kills them as quickly as lack of water does. It is better to make sure you are wetting the entire root system of your new plant and then allow the soil to dry to the point that it is only moist.
3. It’s a good idea to remove clippings after mowing. False! There’s a common misconception that grass clippings contribute significantly to thatch. In reality, they are mostly just water and decompose rapidly, returning significant amounts of fertilizer to the lawn.
