Turf Report

We work hard to give our customers the best lawn care experience possible. In addition to providing exceptional service, we strive to educate our customers on ways they can keep their lawn healthy and green all season long. Check out our seasonal tips below to learn how you can maintain your turf!

We are now applying Fall Fertilizer and spraying broadleaf weeds where needed.

Broadleaf weed control will help control broadleaf weeds present in the lawn at the time of the application. Broadleaf weed control does not prevent broadleaf weeds from coming up later.

PLEASE NOTE: If you did NOT have preventative grub control applied to your lawn this summer, and you see large areas of your lawn that are not bouncing back, go out and tug up on the dead area, If it pulls up like a piece of sod and you see white grub worms on the soil, you will need to schedule a curative grub control to kill the grubs that are there to stop further damage.

Mowing your lawn:

The pros and cons of mowing have a huge influence on how healthy a lawn is, and this is why mowing your lawn correctly is so important. In fact, in many ways it's the key, so let's take a look at some mowing techniques that will help your grass look better and yet stay healthy. Height of cut - Mow at least 3 1/2 inches or higher. The higher the mowing height, the more water is retained in the grass plant. It also helps to shade the grass roots and soil keeping them cooler in the summer months. When grass is severely cut back, the growth of the roots and the plant comes to a complete stop until the leaves can recover. This places a huge amount of stress on the grass plant which is often visible in a yellow to brownish look to the lawn. Mowing too short creates stress on the grass plant which will make it thin out, be more susceptible to heat, cold, drought, insects and disease.
Frequency of cut - Mow the lawn only when needed. Base your mowing schedule on the growth rate of the lawn rather than a time schedule. Never remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade at any one mowing. Removing more than ? of the leaf blade in a single mowing is detrimental to plant health. Do not mow when the lawn is dormant from heat stress!!!! This will break the grass plant creating permanent damage to the lawn. Do not mow during the hottest part of the day. Do not mow the lawn when it is wet. Disease organisms are more easily spread in wet turf and fresh cut leaf blades offer a point of entry for infection. Clippings - Do not remove grass clippings unless they are smothering the lawn. Clippings decompose and re-supply the lawn with nutrients. Clippings do not contribute to thatch.

Mowing Blade Care

Maintain a sharp mowing blade. Lawns mowed with a dull blade appear “ragged” (a white appearance) and “wounded”, which is unattractive and can result in making the grass plant more susceptible to disease and insects. Ideally, mower blades should be sharpened once a month.

Direction of cut – Always Vary Your Mowing Pattern. Try not to mow your lawn in the same direction every time. Shake it up a bit. When you mow in the same direction all the time you can compact the soil into actual ruts. Plus, grass leans and grows in the direction it has been mowed. By mowing in a different direction each time, you will help the grass grow more upright and avoid developing ruts in your soil that in some cases are quite visible.

Mower maintenance – Avoid filling your mower with gas or doing other maintenance work while on the lawn. Any gasoline or oil spills are going to kill the grass and sterilize the soil.

If you are looking to aerate your lawn (without seed), read more about our Liquid Aeration!

Liquid Aeration is a process of applying a liquid solution to the lawn that splits the soil structure on a much finer level when compared to traditional mechanical core aeration. One of the main goals of this treatment is to increase the lawn’s ability to absorb nutrients provided by our fertilizers. The better a lawn is able to absorb nutrients, the more effective each and every one of our treatments will be. Additionally, due to the finer splitting of the soil structure, liquid aeration can be performed at the beginning of the growing season — unlike traditional mechanical core aeration. This opens up the lawn to a wealth of benefits that were previously unobtainable in the spring: the soil is loosened for root development, the thatch layer is gently decreased, and nitrogen is more readily available for uptake.

A summary of the benefits of Liquid Aeration:

* creates microfractures within the soil and encourages deeper root growth.

* can be done anytime during the growing season.

* the soil structure is split at a much smaller scale, allowing for deep penetration of water; roots will, in turn, follow, making nutrients available that were previously unreachable by the plant.

* covers the entire lawn (hill areas, areas not accessible with a machine, rocky areas, under trees that have exposed tree roots, etc).

* no need to mark sprinkler heads, invisible fences or cable lines.

Watering your lawn:

General requirement – Your lawn should receive roughly 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water per week (even during the hottest, driest summer months). If rainfall should occur, adjust the amount of watering you do. Usually once every 3 days is sufficient. Deep, infrequent watering to a soil depth of 4-6 inches is recommended.

<<<<<< Frequent, light watering that only dampens the grass can cause more harm than good, by creating conditions favorable for diseases to form and earlier crabgrass breakthrough >>>>>

Timing – The best time to water your lawn is very early in the morning (starting around 4 or 5 a.m.). This will allow the lawn to dry as the day progresses. Watering in the middle of the day when temperatures are hot allows the water to evaporate.

<<<<<< Evening watering promotes disease problems due to prolonged wetness. >>>>>>

A rule of thumb for figuring out how long to water is to put a coffee can or bucket on the lawn to see how long it takes to collect the 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water. You then know how long it will take to water the lawn to the proper depth.

Fall Seeding Schedule:

Our schedule is full. We do not seed in the spring.

* Already scheduled mechanical plug core aerations with overseeding will be performed through October. (Soil testing is required for us to seed. Dates are weather permitting).

Sprinkler heads and invisible dog fences need to be flagged by the homeowner prior to us performing plug core aeration and overseeding.
