Lawn Care Tips for Abilene and the Big Country
Cut Your Grass Differently Based on Season

Your grass can actually give itself shade and keep your watering from evaporating too quickly. On the other hand, in the winter you want to cut your grass a little shorter. This allows the sun to reach the ground without burning the grass or the soil.
