Weeds and wild grasses are part of nature and are an unwelcome guest in a healthy, beautiful lawn. There are literally thousands of weed seeds lying dormant in all lawns. The proper use and application of herbicides can make your lawn as weed free and beautiful. A successful weed control program utilizes both pre-emergent and post emergent herbicides. Both the timing of application and rate of herbicide used is important in weed control.
Lawns in coastal Georgia are susceptible to devastating insect damage. One of the most damaging insects in this area is the mole cricket. Mole cricket damage can be prevented by the correct and timely application of insecticides. While all lawns in our area are susceptible to mole cricket damage, those lawns in subdivisions are especially at risk due to the amount of turf grass in surrounding yards.
Beautiful lawns do not occur naturally. A beautiful lawn requires supplemental fertilization in additional to being protected from insects and weeds. One of the biggest mistakes a homeowner makes is over fertilizing their lawns. The majority of lawns in the Coastal Empire are centipede lawns which only require between 1 to 2 lbs of nitrogen annually. If centipede turf is over fertilized, the lawn will in a very short time suffer from centipede decline. It is important to fertilizer at the correct time; use the correct analysis and the correct amount.
