A well-maintained lawn not only adds to the beauty of your home, but also provides a safe space for outdoor activities, improves air quality, and increases the overall value of your property. Lawn care for beginners may seem like a daunting task, but with the right information, tools, and techniques, you can transform your lawn into a lush, green paradise.  

Here are a few quick tips to help you achieve a healthy and lush lawn. From choosing the right grass type to proper watering and fertilization techniques, we’ve got you covered. 

Choosing the Right Grass Type

One of the most critical factors in lawn care is selecting the right type of grass for your region and climate. In Iowa, the preferred types of grass are Kentucky Bluegrass, Turf Type, Tall Fescue, and Fine Fescue for shady areas. Each type has unique features, such as drought tolerance, shade tolerance, and durability. By understanding the specific needs of each type, you can choose the best one for your lawn.

Mowing and Watering

Regular mowing and watering are essential for a healthy lawn. The frequency of mowing and watering depends on the type of grass and the climate. Typically, you should mow your lawn once a week and water it deeply once or twice a week. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to fungal diseases and shallow root growth. It’s also essential to mow your lawn to the correct height, as cutting it too short can stress the grass and make it more susceptible to weeds and diseases.

Fertilization, Weed Control, and Pest Management 


Fertilization, weed control, and pest management are also critical components of lawn care. Fertilization provides essential nutrients for the grass, while weed control and pest management prevent damage and diseases. It’s essential to choose the right type of fertilizer and apply it at the right time of year. Additionally, weed control and pest management should be done on a regular basis to prevent damage to your lawn.

Our goal at All American Turf Beauty, Inc. is a simple one:

To provide you with the highest quality products and methods available.

We offer every kind of service that it takes to develop and maintain a beautiful lawn in Iowa based on the climate, soil types, and the varieties of grass that are commonly grown here.

One of the keys to the success of the program is that we provide treatment to lawns approximately every 8 weeks throughout the growing season. This ensures that the grass has fertilizer (food) available throughout the growing season. Dandelions and other Broadleaf weeds are controlled as they germinate thus enabling a weed free lawn, and our Turf Specialist is at the property four to six times per season to address problems as and when they arise.

Another key to our service is our people. The most important person to you in our company is the Turf Specialist assigned to treat your lawn.

We are proud to say that our Turf Specialists are the best trained and most experienced in the lawn care industry.

When you become a customer at All American Turf Beauty, a Turf Specialist is assigned to your account. You will have the same person treating your lawn each time. It is their responsibility to service your lawn, make sure it is receiving the correct applications as scheduled, and to provide you with the best personalized service possible. Their jobs depend on it.

We have several programs to choose from. Your Turf Specialist will recommend the best program that fits the needs of your lawn and your budget.
