Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I water my lawn?

Grass and soil types vary, as does exposure to sunlight, so knowing how much irrigation your lawn requires takes experience - or trial and error.  Nevada Outdoors can assess your lawn and offer exact instructions for achieving a beautiful lawn while helping to conserve water.  

When is the best time to water my lawn?

It’s best to irrigate your lawn early in the morning, before the sun hits the grass.  If you have an automatic sprinkler system, this can be set for early morning just before sunrise. Don’t forget to change your start times as the seasons change!

When should I fertilize my lawn?

Your lawn needs to be fertilized at least twice a year. The timing and amount of fertilization depends on several factors including weather, watering schedules, the type of grass and more. We take a look at your lawn and determine the best time to fertilize as a regular part of our service.

Is lawn care affordable?

In a word- yes! Hiring a professional to care for your landscaping is not only a time saver, it also saves money in the long run. Continued professional care of your lawn and landscaping will keep your plants looking healthy, keep your lawn green, conserve water and get rid of weeds. That all adds up to lower replacement costs in the future and more time spent enjoying your yard.

Do you install pavers?

Yes! Pavers, or paving stones, are a great way to add patios, walkways, driveways, steps and more to your landscaping. They are attractive, durable and cost effective for many uses around your house.
