Lawn care in Hamilton, MO, much like any other area, involves a range of activities. Understanding the local climate and soil type is crucial to maintaining a healthy and lush lawn. In Hamilton, we have a mix of sandy loam and clay soil, which is ideal for growing cool-season grasses like Kentucky Bluegrass and Tall Fescue. These grass types are hardy and adapt well to our climate, which can vary considerably throughout the year.

Mowing is, undoubtedly, the most common lawn care activity. The rule of thumb is to cut only one-third of the grass blade at a time. This will keep your grass healthier and minimize stress. During the hot summer months, it's better to leave the grass a little taller, as it shades the roots and helps retain soil moisture.

Watering is another essential part of lawn care. In Hamilton, we fortunately do not have water restrictions, but it's still crucial to water responsibly. Early morning is the best time to water your lawn, as it reduces evaporation and allows the water to soak deep into the soil. A deep watering once or twice a week is often more beneficial than light daily watering.

Fertilizing, seeding, aerating, and dethatching are also important. Fertilizing should be done in the early spring and fall, while seeding is best done in the late summer or early fall. Aerating, which involves perforating the soil to allow air, water, and nutrients to reach the grass roots, should be done once a year, ideally in the fall. Dethatching, or removing the layer of dead grass and roots that can build up on your lawn, is best done in the late spring or early fall.

For residents in neighborhoods like Lakeview Heights and Oakwood Estates, or those living near Penney Park, maintaining a beautiful lawn can also contribute to the overall beauty of our community. If you follow these tips and adjust them according to the specific needs of your lawn, you should be able to enjoy a healthy and vibrant green space year-round.
