Its time to scalp your lawn! ….What is Scalping?

Give your lawn a jump start this spring!

Having the greenest, healthiest-looking lawn on the block is a coveted title for homeowners across the world. While there are many techniques and strategies for keeping your lawn in top shape, it is important not to overlook scalping as part of your annual care.

Lawn scalping involves cutting your grass at the lowest or nearly the lowest setting on your mower in order to remove dormant grass and promote new, spring growth. But scalping is not appropriate for all types of grasses; Only Bermuda and Zoysia grass lawns will benefit from this treatment. These grasses remain dormant during the winter, so scalping can help jump start its transition into spring growth. Not only does lawn scalping promote growth, but it also thwarts diseases by eliminating a layer of thatch.
