1.Should I be watering as much in fall/winter as I did in the summer?

Lawns need on average 1" - 1.5" of water to remain healthy during the summer and .5" - 1" during the winter. Grasses do not go completely dormant in our part of the country so moisture in the soil year-round is viable for healthy turf and will help prevent stress due to lack of water.

2.When does my lawn need to be fertilized?

Feed warm-season grasses during active growth periods, but not during the hot midsummer months. Apply the fertilizer in three phases: first when the grass starts to green in early spring, next in late spring, and once again in late summer.

Once a year. Most trees should be pruned annually for dead, dying, and diseased branches. Older trees should be pruned every 2 to 3 years.
