Basic lawn care in Avery and Watauga Counties of North Carolina is quite difficult. In the mountainous regions, you deal with hills and valleys (literally), bumps in the grass, and constant landscaping. Think of the amount of time you would be able to spend with your family if you knew your lawn was being taken care of by a professional.
The cost of caring for your lawn is dependent on the type and frequency of lawn service you need.
Most houses in the mountains benefit from being mowed once a week. The area receives a fairly significant amount of rainfall so the grass is more likely to grow quickly. Fescue is the best grass for the mountain region of North Carolina. Fescue grasses have the ability to stay green year-round and perform well in cooler climates. The best height for most fescue grasses is approximately 2.5 inches. Either a weekly or bi-weekly schedule will assist you with keeping your grass at the appropriate height.
To keep your lawn looking lush and green by overseeding once a year in the fall to prepare your grass for next year’s spring. However, fertilizing, you can be done up to four times a year.

Fall in the mountains of North Carolina is one of the most majestic things you can experience. People travel from miles around to drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway in awe of the reds, yellows, and oranges exploding from the trees. Once those leaves turn brown and fall to the ground, many homeowners are not as pleased. As they hit the ground on your turf, you need to get them removed as quickly as possible. The longer leaves lie on the ground they will block sunlight and not allow moisture to evaporate out of the leaves, thus leaving a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria and viruses.
Mulching & Weeding
Mulching should be done annually in the early spring. When mulched properly your lawn is able to retain moisture and feed nutrients back into the soil. Mulching will also assist in stopping weeds from invading your yard. This is highly suggested instead of using chemical weed killers, which are dangerous if you have small children who like to play outside. Or you could try manually pulling weeds throughout your lawn.
Aerating your lawn means poking small holes throughout your lawn to allow water, nutrients, and air to penetrate the roots of your grass. This will help you maintain a beautiful lush lawn throughout the summer. Aeration also assists with getting rid of thatch, therefore allowing your grass to breathe a little easier. Many do not understand the reasoning behind aeration or why it is such an integral process in lawn care but trust us, your lawn will thank you for it later.
