A new generation of reel mowers has been designed that operate much more effectively with a fraction of the effort. The added benefits include a good light exercise and quiet, pollution-free spotted spurge. The best time for watering is early morning; less water will be lost to evaporation. Ideally, it’s better to water the first half-inch or so, then wait for an hour or two before watering the second half-inch. Grasses vary in the type of climate they prefer, the amount of water and nutrients they require, how much shade they can tolerate, and the degree of wear they can withstand. Ask your local garden center to recommend the grass that is best adapted to your area.
