Seasonal Tips & Trends

  • Spring Time Tips!
  • SpringAs soil temperatures begin to increase during late winter and early spring, fescue and warm season grass (Bermuda/Zoysia/St. Augustine, etc.) lawns begin to wake up. What does this mean for your lawn and what should you be doing about it?
 
  • Recommended Spring Treatments:
  • SpringFescue Lawns: If you were smart, you performed a thorough aeration and seeding during the fall of last year and there will be no need to aerate and seed during the spring. We recommend applying a pre-emergent fertilizer once in February and then again in April. Use March to clean up any existing weeds that may have poked its head through your first round of pre-emergent. Fescue planted last year will now begin to reach something called “full lateral maturation”. Grass you plant in the fall only reaches about 50% maturity. You will begin to see what was once baby grass last fall begin to beef up and your lawn will become much thicker and greener. We hardly ever recommend aeration and seeding in the spring as fescue has a hard time maturing quick enough to withstand the harsh conditions of summer when planted in the spring. If you must, we recommend aerating and seeding in late February. Forego any pre-emergents or weed killers until you’ve mowed your new grass at least 3 times. Fungus control will also be imperative as new fescue grass is like a child during the spring and summer months, it’s very prone to getting sick with fungus and other diseases.
  • Warm Season Grasses such as Bermuda and Zoysia: The pre-emergent you applied should still be holding strong. Now that soil temps are on the rise, you will begin to see the hearty grasses start to wake up and look forward to the warm weather to come. We recommend cleaning up any lingering winter weeds in March and then a pre-emergent in April. Aeration of warm season grasses should only be performed when it is FULLY out of dormancy state and actively growing. May and June are prime times to do this in southeast areas of the country.
  • Your soil is most active during the warm seasons. This means all of the little beneficial microbes, fungi and bugs are hard at work providing essential nutrients to your turf. Introducing an organic-rich nutrient into your soil only enhances the microbial activity and will help build a very healthy soil profile. You can add a 100% organic fertilizer during any month of the warm season regardless of the grass type. A more organic soil profile is not only healthier for the plant, it will also build tremendous drought tolerance.

 

 

Seasonal Tips & Trends - Old Man Winter is Among Us!

 

As soil temperatures begin to decrease during the late Fall and Winter, lawns begin to grow dormant and become prone to nature's cool season weeds and insects.

 

Recommended Winter Treatments:

Fescue Lawns- Control Winter weeds now with a post emergent herbicide!  It is also very important to apply a higher nitrogen fertilizer to maintain the beautiful green color of your lawn throughout the winter.  Weed seedlings that have remained asleep within your soil during the warm season, especially chickweed and dandelion, are soon going to be woken up (if not already) with cooler soil temperatures. 

Your soil is most inactive during the cool season of the Carolinas.  This means all of the little beneficial microbes, fungi and bugs begin to slow their activity which is why Introducing an higher nitrogen fertilizer to your fescue lawn only supplements the lack of microbial activity and will help the green color keep over the Winter.

 Bermuda/Zoysia Lawns - if you were on top of your game, you placed an organic based pre-emergent down on your lawn in September BEFORE your warm season grass went dormant.  After dormancy, there are very little benefits to adding ANY fertilizer to your lawn.  In fact, it is irresponsible. Your lawn becomes 100% asleep and not even a very toxic Round-Up (which we don't use) application would affect your lawn's health.  Keep a small supply of an organic non-selective herbicide handy for spot treating any winter weeds that may pop up.
