Turf Maintenance
We are applying Round 5 of our 7 Round Turf Program. Round 5 is a liquid application targeting nutsedge, broadleaf, and grassy weeds in the lawn. Turf Managers will also assess lawns at this time to determine if and what is needed as far as a Fall Lawn Renovation. Aeration, verticutting and overseeding being the common items to be done in order to keep the lawn full and thick. If you are interested in starting your personalized turf health plan please give us a call.

Mowing Service
The mowing season has begun and will run weekly from now until the end of October. Due to the rainy weather they may be behind a day or two but will work weekends to catch up. If you are interested in the weekly mowing service, please contact the office.

Winter Injury on Turfgrass

Ok…we're starting to see the damages caused by the Winter of 2013-2014.  Turfgrass, Evergreens…we've seen widespread damage across our service area.  Some of the damage is due to Winter Desiccation which is caused by drying during winter weather or drought.  Even though we had some snow this year, we had very little beneficial moisture.  If plant material including turf went into winter months dry and remained that way throughout the winter, there is a strong possibility that winter desiccation is the cause.

The other cause of damage to turf is to shaded areas.  Shady turf typically has very shallow, underdeveloped roots because it doesn't receive good quality of light.  Therefore, the plant does not have suffiecient protection against cold temperatures and winter drought.  

We've also seen quite a bit of salt injury to plant material, especially Boxwoods, Junipers and other evergreens.  Please call us if you have any questions or want us to give our opinion and recommendations.
