application news

fall/winter Pre-emerge/Broadleaf Weed Control (Sp3)

 

This application is our Fall/Winter Pre-ember/Broadleaf weed control treatment for those clients who are scheduled to receive this application.  This application prevents the germination of winter annual weeds and controls any existing broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, henbit or wild onions.  For more information, please read a copy of our 2010
Sp3 Application Note
.

 

Liming:  If you have not had lime during the 2009 or 2010 season, we recommend that you do before the end of this year.  This reduces acids in the soil, improves pre-emerge effectiveness and helps to optimize the effects of the fertilization.

 

 

lawn maintenance updates

good turf tips for you to follow

 

Anything above and beyond the basics of lawn care we consider lawn maintenance.  This would include aerating, thatching, planting grass seed or over-seeding your lawn.  You might be surprised just how much lawn maintenance will impact the overall health and growth of your turf.  If you have had Palisades, El Toro or Royal Zoysia sod placed in your lawn, please drop us a note so we may update our records.  These Zoysia types may require slightly different treatments and we need to keep watch for diseases in them.  Please call if you need care information.

 

How high do I need to cut my grass?

Bermuda and Zoysia lawns should be mowed at the highest possible height (2 to 2 inches is best) during the summer.  The taller mowing heights will help keep the lawn greener and thicker.  Fescue should be mowed at 3 inches at all times.  Mulching mowers are very good as long as the lawn is mowed on time.  This means that no more than 1/3 of the leaf blade is removed at a time.  Mulching returns nutrients and organic matter to the soil and can help reduce the watering needs of your lawn.

How much do I need to water?

For best results, wait 24 hours then water 30 minutes or more in each area if we do not receive rainfall.  Watering moves the fertilizer and pre-emerge into the soil where it is most effective.  Deep and infrequent watering is best for the turf.  We recommend watering 2 or 3 days a week during the hot, dry days of summer.

 

Water your lawn as necessary.  When growth appears to be slowing down or the turf looks a little dry, you should water 1 hour (or more) in each area, or to the point that the water begins to runoff.  Deep and infrequent watering is best for the turf.  This may mean watering 2 or 3 days a week during the hot, dry days of summer.

Are there any more helpful tips?

For dog urine spots you may water those areas that are affected more efficiently.  Make sure your dog drinks plenty of water to help neutralize the ammonia in the urine.  Feed the dog canned food which contains more water in it.  Lime, over-seed the area, or even apply activated charcoal to the spots.
