The Q&A Archives: Lawn Care

Question: Hello,
Im from Fresno,CA recently purchased my first home. Lawn care is new to me,just wanted your advise on keeping a green lawn. It looks like it needs some help. I have read different opinions on watering and fertilizing but never specific to my region. So what is a good watering schedule,mowing height and fertillizing schedule for my area? Thanks!!

Answer: Since the topic of lawn establishment and care is an extensive one, and one that would take more space than alloted in this forum, I've found a terrific resource for you, hosted by the University of California. It is specific to your area and will guide you through the process of choosing the right turfgrass, and the best management techniques. Hope you find it helpful!
