Frequently Asked Questions About Lawn Maintenance

Are there benefits to regular mowing?

Regularly mowing the lawn is a great way to keep your turf in the best condition possible. It helps maintain the grass, keeping it neat, clean, and short, allows the lawn's quality to thrive, and reduces the buildup of thatch throughout your yard over time. A well-mowed lawn goes a long way, and it helps the plant roots keep their exposure to sunlight, water, and nutrients.

Will dead leaf piles kill my grass?

When dead leaf piles accumulate on top of your grass, they contribute to the layer of thatch on your lawn. The presence of thatch causes the grass and soil to become more compacted, blocking the roots from accessing water, oxygen, and air. While it's true that a certain amount of thatch can benefit your turf and protect it from the elements, too much of it can be harmful to your grass. Dead piles of leaves add to this layer of thatch and block the grass from essential nutrients.

How important is it to properly edge your lawn?

This process of edging your lawn is very important to maintaining the overall health of your yard. Lawn edging cleans edges around your property, defining different areas to allow transitions from lawns to plant beds to walkways. When you keep a well-defined edge, it effectively keeps mulch in bounds and prevents water run-off from damaging other areas of turf.

Does weed killer kill grass?

Weed killers destroy weeds while protecting the grass. Here at DeRosa Landscaping, we use low-impact treatments that cause minimal disturbance to your lawn. Our weed killers effectively target the enzymes in weeds while leaving the enzymes in your grass alone.

How long does weed killer reside in soil?

Different weed killers accomplish different things. For example, one product is useful in preparing your gardening plots, while another is more beneficial for treating your lawn and grass. Many herbicide products contain glyphosate, which the leaves and the roots of the plant absorb. Weeds can take around two weeks to die off, and most weed killers evaporate in the soil within 24 to 78 hours.
