Mother Nature is Turning Up the Heat!

With temperatures going into the 90’s and no rain in the forecast, maintaining a beautiful turfgrass lawn will be difficult - even for the professionals! Hopefully, you have listened to Mark Webber and I for the last 9 months and done everything we suggested that you do to get your turfgrass deeply rooted. These practices would have included Late Season High Nitrogen Fertilization back in November or early December, and also Hollow Tine Core Aeration.We have had a wonderful spring for growing…See More

With Wet Weather Comes Disease / The Dangers of Powassan Virus

It’s becoming harder and harder to recall a day recently when we haven’t been looking out our window to something other than droplets of rain. Rain, rain and more rain has been the name of the weather game as of late; and with all that precipitation and warm temperatures comes disease. Disease is starting to be seen on turf, trees and other ornamental plants in the area, all thanks to this wet weather! Be on the lookout for signs of disease throughout your lawn and apply proper control options…See More

Don’t Use Straw When Seeding Your Lawn!

It is a common misconception that when seeding a lawn, you have to cover the grass seed with straw. While straw will certainly help prevent erosion of the soil and help shade the new grass plant from the heat of the sun during the day, Straw and Hay ( even worse that straw) bring with them tons of weed seeds and contaminants. Even “clean” straw brings with it wheat seed that will germinate along with your expensive grass seed and make your lawn look absolutely horrible.…See More

The art of controling broadleaf weeds in your lawn this Spring - patience is required !

Many homeowners want a beautiful , weed free , dark green "perfect lawn" and will do whatever is required to keep their lawn that way throughout the year. In my opinion , the most difficult step in a lawn care program is keeping a lawn free of broadleaf weeds in the Spring . This is because broadleaf weeds , such as the dandelion, for example, keep germinating throughout the spring, and the products that we have to control these broadleaf weeds only control the broadleaf weeds that are there…See More
