How To Maintain Your Grass

Grubs

Grubs are turf-damaging insects that feed on the root systems of grass plants. Left untreated, they are capable of doing severe damage in short periods of time. When the infestation is heavy, the turf can actually be rolled back like a carpet.

Disease

If you notice leaf spot, melting out, brown patch, dollar spot, red thread, necrotic ring spot, or rust on your plants, then call us right away. The fungi that cause these diseases can spread quickly. Further damage can be prevented if your lawn is treated promptly.

Watering

When it comes to taking care of your lawn, one of the most important maintenance practices is also one of the most basic: watering. As the company responsible for maintaining your lawn, you can count on us to apply fertilizer and control products correctly, but proper watering is essential to achieving the maximum effectiveness of the treatments. If your lawn shows signs of insect activity, then we apply a product that will help controls these pests. Watering will enhance the effectiveness of this application. If there is no rain during the next day or two after an application, we recommend watering your lawn to move this product down into the thatch layer and root zone. Here are some general watering guidelines: Your lawn should receive roughly one to one and one-half inches of water per week during the hottest, driest months. Lightly watering, merely dampening the grass, has little benefit and can actually harm your lawn. The key to efficient watering is applying enough water to reach the deep roots of grass plants. Early morning is the ideal time to water your lawn. Watering during the middle of the day, when the weather tends to be the hottest and driest, can waste water due to excessive evaporation. Evening watering tends to promote disease problems. During the summer months, it is a good idea to water your lawn the day before you mow and then try to mow during the coolest part of the day. This minimizes the browning effect of summer mowing and decreases the time it takes the turf to heal. Mow your lawn as needed. Never remove more than one-third of the leaf blade at any one time. Also, it is very important to keep your mower’s blade sharpened. A dull blade will harm the grass by doing more ripping and shredding than cutting.

weed control - lawn care/grass information page

Weed Control

Pre-emergent weed treatment products work by establishing a barrier on the soil surface that interrupts the development of the weeds. For maximum effectiveness, do not rake or aerate your lawn for the several weeks after the application of pre-emergent weed treatments. Doing so may break the protective herbicide barrier and allow the grassy weeds to develop. Pre-emergents begin to go to work when they become wet, either from rain or watering.

If you require a broadleaf weed control application product, the product we use will cause the weeds to twist and curl and then eventually disappear over the next several weeks. If broadleaf weeds are not a major problem, a spot treatment can be used. To insure the effectiveness of this application, we recommend not watering or mowing your lawn for at least 24 hours after the application.

Fertilization

Proper fertilization promotes greening and thick, healthy top growth while encouraging the development of a deep root system-the foundation of any beautiful lawn. For optimum results, don’t water or mow for at least 24 hours after a fertilizer application.
