Layton's hot dry summers and freezing snowy winters can make it hard to keep your lawn healthy, especially if you'd rather be hiking or swimming on those warm sunny days.

Most Common Grass Types in Layton: Cool-season grasses will do better here, so the best choices of grass for your lawn are Kentucky bluegrass, buffalograss, tall fescue, fine fescue, and perennial ryegrass.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: Once the ground starts to thaw out and warm up, give it a good raking to loosen up the compacted grass and thatch. Aerate cool-season grasses in early spring (if you have warm-season grass, wait till late spring). Give your lawn a good soaking, and then a couple days later, fertilize it. Continue watering your lawn, making sure it gets at least an inch per week –– rainfall included. Watering in early morning or late evening is best to avoid water evaporation from the sun. Begin mowing your grass when it gets tall enough. Taller grass has longer roots, which means it's stronger, so resist cutting it too short.
Fall Lawn Care Tips: Even though the leaves are fun to jump in, it's important to not let them hang around too long. A thick layer of leaves prevents the sun, air, and nutrients from reaching the soil. Continue mowing and watering your grass as long as it's still growing. Loosen up the soil, add some fertilizer, and spread seed to prepare it for the cold months ahead. Doing this ahead of the first freeze allows ample time for the nutrients to reach the roots and absorb into the soil, ensuring your grass will survive the winter.
Common Lawn Diseases in Layton: Pink snow mold, gray snow mold, melting out, necrotic ring spot, summer patch, fairy ring, and powdery mildew are common lawn fungi that grow on Layton lawns and cause minor to severe damage. They're typically easy to prevent and treat, but if you're unsure of what to do, let us help. LawnStarter's pros will diagnose and treat your lawn disease and get it healthy again in no time.
Common Lawn Pests: Grubs, chinch bugs, mole crickets, armyworms, and cutworms are tiny but harmful. They feast on the blades or roots of your grass and slowly but surely cause major damage. Also, watch out for moles and voles which dig tunnels in your lawn. Often, they're there looking for insects, so if the insects are under control, it's less likely you'll have to deal with these larger pests.
