Avoid Stress, Pest, and Disease!
With all the rain we’ve been getting lately, you might think it isn’t necessary to water your grass. However, a light midday watering can help prevent certain common summer diseases from affecting your lawn. If your lawn is under stress, you might start seeing damage from diseases and pests that your grass could normally resist.
Instead of using pesticides (insecticides, fungicides, etc.) we recommend in most cases just to follow proper cultural practices. That means mowing the lawn to the proper height (3″), giving the grass the nutrients it needs, and watering properly. A light midday water, especially in the areas in direct sunlight, will help to relieve heat stress on the lawn during the hottest part of the day.

We apply premium blended products that only work to full potential when the lawn is cared for properly.We pride ourselves on our knowledge and we want to share our expertise with you.
