The Most Common Grass Types in Tacoma: Some of Tacoma’s most common grasses are fine fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and bentgrass.
Spring Lawn Care Tips for Tacoma: Apply herbicide to kill any weeds before they pop up, or apply a post-emergent herbicide to kill any existing weeds. Aerate your soil and apply a slow-release fertilizer. Apply insecticide to prevent grubs from popping up.
Fall Lawn Care Tips for Tacoma: Overseed your cool-season grasses if your yard looks thin. Fertilize twice in the fall, early and late. Keep mowing regularly, as the lower temperatures, the rain, and the fertilizer you apply can cause the grass to grow more rapidly than in the summer. Clean up the fallen leaves, either through mowing or raking. Kill perennial weeds like dandelion and ivy.
