Summer is here!

well no doubt about it, its summer time.  luckily we had some good rains a week ago that really helped alot of struggling turf.  We have seen numerous cases of lawn disease showing in many areas, most prominent are dollar spot and brown patch disease.  these are highly destructive and fast moving and often warrant fungicide applications-- please contact us to schedule this for you.  Lawn disease often rears its head on stressed turf such as drought or heat stress. also during times of warm nights and high humidity or wetness creates an optimal breeding ground for it.  Hope everyones having a great summer!

some tips for this time of year.

-Do NOT mow your lawn during the heat of the day when it s hot- aviod the hours of 11 am - 4 pm when its

90 degrees or above.

-Do continue to mow you turf at 3 or 3 1/2" at regular intervals.

-Do not discontinue mowing entirely during times of slow gowth. dont leave your turf long.

-start watering cycles at about 3 am - aviod late day/ early evening watering.

-do NOT remove clippings- discharge / mulch mow

-notorious hot spots or drought prone areas may be watered an additional time on hot days,

12-1 pm is good and run for 15 minutes per rotor zone. 5 minutes per spray head / mister zones.

-Do water in any treatments made to your lawn as instructed, some products such as grub control will NOT work unless you properly water in within 72 hours.

- Make sure you have a functioning rain sensor or soil moisture meter for your sprinkler system- and that its turned ON

ITS BEEN A LONG HARD WINTER, AND SPRING IS FINALLY AROUND THE CORNER!  AS THE SNOW COVER SLOWLY MELTS AWAY, THERE MAY BE A FEW SURPRISES LEFT BEHIND. 

 YOU MAY SEE SOME UNSIGHTLY DAMAGE FROM

  • SNOW PLOWING AND REMOVAL
  • SALT AND CHEMICAL ICE MELT
  • SNOW MOLD LAWN DISEASE
  • WINTER KILL TO TURF PLANTS

JBTURF RECOMMEND THAT YOU REMOVE DEBRIS THEN RAKE OUT OR DETHATCH YOUR LAWN ASAP.  THIS WILL HELP BREAK UP MATTED DOWN AREAS, AND ALLOW AIR INTO THE THATCH AND ROOT ZONE. WE RECOMMEND A GYPSUM APPLICATION FOR SALT OR PET DAMAGED TURF.  AS TEMPERATURES RISE AND THE TURF IS FERTILIZED, YOU WILL LIKELY SEE SOME REGROWTH IN THESE DAMAGED AREAS.  IF DEEMED NECESSARY, THE TURF MAY NEED TO BE RESEEDED. THOUGH FALL IS THE BEST TIME FOR RESEEDING, SEVERE DAMAGE MAY NEED TO BE SEEDED RIGHT AWAY.
