Mowing and More
Our professional technicians can mow your grass and trim the edges of your lawn to perfection but that is only part of the services we offer.
Irrigation - One of the best ways to free up your time and keep your lawn healthy is to have an irrigation system installed. Our team can easily give you a quote for designing and implementing an irrigation system. We customize our systems to the situation. This may seem obvious but there are some companies that use a one size fits all method which can lead to the over watering and underwatering of spots on your property. Different plants need different amounts of water and it is also important to consider the possible runoff from plants that need lots of water. We take all this and more into account when designing an irrigation system for your Boerne home or business.
Sodding - Do you have some unsightly patches of dying or dead grass on your lawn? Sodding is just the trick! We can find a sod that fits your budget and your lawn. Whether it is a relatively small area or a whole lawn, we can make it a field of green to enjoy.
Fertilization - If your grass has seen better days, then it is probably time to give it the nutrition it needs. This isn't as easy as it might seem. There are many reasons that grass loses its healthy green appearance and there is no one fertilizer to fix it. We know how to inspect and test your lawn to understand exactly the type of fertilizer will give you the most bang for their buck.

Lawn Care Tips
A green lawn says volumes about the interest you take in the maintenance and curb appeal of your home. When properly maintained, grass can flourish and remain healthy, green, and growing without excessive maintenance, water, fertilizer, or reseeding. At Lawns & More, we are dedicated to providing unparalleled lawn care to our customers and giving them a priceless area in which to play, create memories, and share the beauty nature has to offer. With our help, you can keep your lawn green without overusing valuable resources like water. Here are some simple tips to help you out along the way.
Water in the Morning
The illusion that watering is watering and can be done effectively at any time during the day is false. The most efficient and effective time to water your lawn is first thing in the morning, before the sun rises. This allows the water to saturate the ground and be soaked up by the grass before quickly evaporating due to the sun’s hot rays. Often, you may find that you don’t need to water as much when you do it in the wee hours of the morning because the water will take a longer time to evaporate so it takes less time to saturate the ground.
Abide by County Ordinances
Many counties put water ordinances and restrictions in place to help homeowners monitor their water usage. This helps to avoid overuse and is important to ensure there is enough water to go around. At Lawns & More we also take these ordinances into regard when planning a watering system for your property. Whether it is automatically timed or not, we make every effort to abide by the law to ensure the preservation of this precious resource.
Let the Grass Grow
Longer grass isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In fact, it has many environmental benefits including the fact that it provides protection against the sun’s rays. Additionally, longer grass retains more moisture which means water evaporates slower. With our dependable lawn maintenance, we can help you keep longer grass without it getting out of control or looking like an eyesore. Our equipment and methods for maintenance are useful in that your lawn will remain manicured and symmetrical even when the grass grows longer.
Organic Lawn Care
More and more home and business owners are concerned with the chemicals lawn care professionals often use and the high environmental costs also associated with lawn care. According to the U.S. National Wildlife Federation, the average suburban lawn receives 10 times as much chemical pesticide per acre as farmland. They also estimate over 70 million tons of fertilizers and pesticides are applied to residential lawns and gardens every year. These statistics are startling because there are alternatives to chemical intervention to get the lush, green lawn of your dreams.
There is a way to reduce your lawn’s dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides and make it naturally resistant to weeds, pests and disease. All you need is one of Lawns & More’s green-thumbed technicians to provide it with specialized organic lawn care, which includes:
Improving the Soil
Our lawn care experts can test your soil’s pH levels. If it is too acidic, we can sprinkle in some lime or sulfur if it is not acidic enough. Balancing the acidity of your soil can give your lawn a huge boost. If the pH levels are stable, we can also make your soil loamier. Loam soil is soil that has a mixture of clay, silt and sand. Its porous texture allows water to flow through slowly enough for the plants to access it while fast enough to avoid water from making the waterlogged. It is also rich in nutrients, which your lawn will love.
Sourcing Local Grass
To the untrained eye, all grasses can look the same. However, their preferences are varied depending on what climate they originate from. In Texas, the most common and healthy-growing grasses are:
- Buffalo grass
- Bermuda grass
- Carpet grass
- Bent grass
- Centipede grass
- St. Augustine grass
Choosing the right type of grass based on how much sunlight your lawn receives, its shade tolerance as well as how much water it requires is not an easy task. Luckily, Lawns & More’s technicians have all received extensive training on the best types of grass to grow in Texas and we are happy to advise you in your selection.
It may seem counterintuitive to leave grass clippings on your lawn as they can make a lawn look unkempt, but they can have an important purpose. These clipping can provide your lawn with important nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and water similar to what you would find in a bag of fertilizer. And as an added bonus, recycling grass clippings to stand-in as a fertilizer makes sure you don’t have to deal with thatch.
For this method to be effective, you need to be very precise with the length and timing of your cuts. If the clipping that are left on the lawn are too tall, it will look like someone unraveled a bale of hay on your lawn. If the clippings are too short, they will decompose too quickly for the nutrients to be effectively absorbed. Luckily, if you’re interested in this eco-friendly and sustainable approach to keeping your lawn beautiful, our lawn care experts are more than happy to manage this on your behalf.

Proper Fertilization by the Lawn Care Experts
The people of Boerne, Texas love having a green lawn as the foundation of their home or business’s landscape and the best way to maintain its lush color is to provide it with the right fertilization. When you use the correct fertilizer on your lawn, it will promote healthy turf and minimize weeds and pests. That said, unless you have received the same training and professional experience as Lawn & More’s lawn care experts, choosing the right food for your lawn can be a difficult process. With so many different fertilizers available on the market today, all promising to have the nutrients your lawn desperately needs to maintain its appearance and health, it is very common for people to get the wrong type of fertilizer. When you let Lawn & More’s lawn care experts mind your fertilizer needs, you don’t have to worry about accidentally overloading it with nutrients that can cause it to burn out.
All plants benefit from nutrients and grass is no different. For the most part, your grass can absorb the nutrients it needs from water and air, but, just like humans that take vitamins every day, sometimes supplements are necessary. The main nutrients your grass needs are:
- Nitrogen because it promote foliar growth and color.
- Phosphorus because it encourages flower and root growth.
- Potassium because it enhances the plant’s ability to digest nitrogen.
Like all things in life, the only way to promote the healthy growth of your lawn with the help fertilizer is a balanced diet. When you call the lawn care experts at Lawns & More, we will conduct a soil test to determine the needs of your lawn. The type of grass on your property, the soil’s pH levels and your preference towards organic versus synthetic formulas will all influence our decision on how to proceed.
Types of Fertilizers
There are many different types fertilizer. Obviously, there are ones with more nitrogen or more potassium that can be beneficial depending on the deficiencies of your lawn. But the differences go far beyond the type of nutrients used in the formula. There are:
- Time-release fertilizers that can feed your lawn over many months and save you from having to remember to feed your lawn again at a specific time to maximize its health.
- Liquid fertilizers that are quickly absorbed by plants and get their benefits soon after they are applied.
- Granular fertilizers that are sprinkled around the plants or worked into the soil.
Of course, we can’t recommend which fertilizer will work best with your lawn until we conduct a soil inspection. Any so-called lawn care expert that says they can offer you a blanket solution to your fertilizer needs doesn’t have your best interests in mind. When you want a trained professional to make an educated recommendation on the best fertilizer option for your lawn in the Boerne area, call (210) 602-4815 today. Our lawn care experts will be more than happy to conduct the necessary tests to steer you in the right direction.
