What Happened to Lawns With the Wet Summer?

Summer Lawns

Paul explains the conditions that promoted disease in lawns

and the best way to get your lawn back on track!

 

 

The Unlimited Service Plan will continue with:

  • Sept, fertilizer with HumicDG and spot treat weeds
  • Oct – early Nov,  aerate and overseed with TurfType Tall Fescue plus add SoluCal as recommended by the soil test
  • Nov, winter fertilizer and spot treat weeds

*This is the outline of the fall schedule and every year turns out slightly different depending how the weather cooperates! For example, if the aeration and overseeding happens to go into November, we apply the winter fertilizer on the same visit.

How High Should You Cut Your Grass?

How high should you cut grass?

Paul talks about why the height is important

and some ideas on how to make sure your mower is set at the right height.

The three most important things when cutting your grass:

  • Cut your grass at 3.50 to 4.20 inches
  • Cut with super sharp blads
  • Cut when it hits the threshold, ie if you are cutting at 4 inches, cut the grass when the grass is 6 inches tall or before
    • Never cut more then 1/3 of the blade at once. If you get back from vacation and haven’t cut in awhile set the mower up higher and cut one day and then wait a day or so to cut again at the regular height.
Have a great weekend and

Yellow Nutsedge is the most challenging summer weed to deal with. I generally begin treating yellow nutsedge 2-3 weeks after first seeing it and then repeat the control every 3 weeks till the growth slows down. The goal is to control it before it goes into seed heads!
