Easy, Affordable Lawn Care Services in San Diego

San Diego is known for many things –– one of these is the coastal marine climate that's perfect for creating and maintaining a gorgeous lawn. The average temperature reaches highs in the 70s° F and lows of 50s° F. making San Diego the ideal climate for any outdoor oasis.

Common Grass Types in San Diego: There are four types of grass that thrive in the City of San Diego: Bermudagrass, St. Augustine, Zoysiagrass, and tall fescue.

When is the Best Time to Plant Grass: The best time to plant grass in San Diego is between the cooler months of October and November when the temperature reaches around between 50-60° F daily.

Spring Lawn Care Tips for San Diego: To prepare for the warmer months, the maintenance of your lawn is crucial. For San Diego, this starts with fertilizer application. The next step would be to water the lawn regularly, ensuring to get deep down to the root system. After this is done, your lawn will be established and growing well, so you'll need to start mowing weekly. The last maintenance item is to routinely check for weeds, as they can spread fast and cause unforeseen problems. The sooner a weed problem is nipped in the bud, the less damage they'll cause.

Fall Lawn Care Tips for San Diego: Lawn care in the fall comes down to four maintenance objectives. First, it's important to continue watering the lawn. Second, look for any brown or dead spots, as this shows areas that need more attention or fresh seeding. Third, rake up any debris like leaves and twigs. And finally, continue mowing the lawn regularly, but not at the same frequency as in spring or summer.

Common Lawn Pests: The most common lawn pests in San Diego are white grubs, armyworms, billbugs, cutworms, and sod webworms.
