Lawns In January

Posted by Jim on January 26, 2015

It's nice to get a break from mowing the lawn.  The Bermuda has long been a sleep, and the cold is now taking a tole on the Fescue.  The Fescue's are starting to shed there outer leaves.  This gives them a browish color and there growth is very slow.  Don't be fooled, their roots are still very alive and soaking up nutients. This is why we fertilze them in the winter.  Weed issues now become much more problamatic.  A big green weed in your brown turf is alot more unsitely then before.  We are seeing Po Anna in the grassy weed family and Wild Garlic, Chickweed, Bittercrest and Henbit broadleaf weeds.  We spray these out with your winter service.

August Heat effects your Fescue

Posted by Jim on August 28, 2014

The August heat does alot of damage to the Fescue turf.  It thins it out and weakens it.  This weakend condition allows for fungus to attack your grass making it even thinner.  Fescue is very likly to get Brown Patch Fungus in the summer months.  If you see brown circles developing call our office. 

The fast way to fix your Fescue lawn is to reseed it in the month of Sept.  This returns it quickly to the way you want it to look.  Don't miss this time frame.  It is best to do it in Sept.  by the end of Oct it is to cold for good seed germination.

Posted by Jim on March 6, 2013

 

It has been said that landscaping adds 5 to 25 percent to the value of your home.  I nice lush lawn invites you to walk across it.  Many people wait until they sell the house to fixup the lawn.  Why do all that work for some one else. Do it now and enjoy it.  Give you kids a safe soft area to play.  Lawns do that.
