Taking care of your lawn in Hammond, OR, involves a range of tasks, from mowing and watering to fertilizing and seeding. Because our climate here in northwest Oregon is predominantly cool and rainy, particularly in neighborhoods like Pacific Ridge and Misty Meadows, the best time to tackle most of these tasks is in the late spring or early fall when the weather is milder.

Mowing is a task that should be performed regularly during the growing season. Depending on the variety of grass in your yard and the time of year, this could be once a week or once every two weeks. Remember to keep your mower blades sharp and to never cut more than one-third of the grass blade at a time to avoid stressing the grass and inviting disease.

One of the most important aspects of lawn care in our area is proper watering. Due to the heavy rainfall we experience, especially in the winter months, overwatering can become a problem. Instead, aim to water your lawn deeply and infrequently. This encourages deep root growth, which helps your lawn withstand dry periods.

Fertilization is another crucial aspect of lawn care. Given the nature of our local soil, which can be quite dense and clay-like, especially in areas near Hammond Marina and Cullaby Lake, it's important to fertilize your lawn at least twice a year. This will replenish nutrients and help your lawn maintain its lush, green appearance.

Finally, aeration and dethatching are essential tasks to incorporate into your lawn care routine. These processes prevent soil compaction and thatch buildup, both of which can choke out grass roots and inhibit growth. The best time to aerate and dethatch your lawn is in the early fall, just before you apply your fall fertilizer.

Remember, the key to a healthy lawn in Hammond, OR, is regular maintenance. By following these tips and tailoring your lawn care routine to our local climate and soil conditions, you'll be well on your way to a beautiful, thriving lawn!
