West Michigan Lawn Care – The Crabgrass Guarantee

February 22nd, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Timing Is Everything:

Make sure to apply a crabgrass pre-emergent before it’s too late! The optimal window for this in West Michigan is usually between March and May. Our first lawn care application includes this treatment along with fertilizer and general weed control. Additionally, if crabgrass pops up later, we’ll spot-treat it throughout the season for FREE! You can even take advantage of our free service calls if you’re on the full 6 application program. Service calls can be for both crabgrass and general weeds!

Remember, the key to our crabgrass guarantee is a timely pre-emergent application. Let’s strive for a crabgrass-free year together!

*Mental Health: Green spaces promote stress reduction and family bonding.

 

Significance of Bug Control:

*Protecting Plant Health: Pest infestations and disease transmission threaten lawn vitality.

Grand Rapids Michigan Mole and Vole Control – What Do I Have?

February 7th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

How Do I Know If I Have Moles or Voles?!

Mole activity vs vole activity

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While both moles and voles are small mammals that burrow underground, they show different signs of activity and behaviors. Recognizing these distinctions is crucial for effectively managing issues related to their presence, particularly in gardening, landscaping, and overall lawn care.

Mole Activity:

  • Signs include dirt piles, surface ridges, and trails that squish when you walk on them.
  • This activity is the result of moles excavating tunnels underground and pushing up soil to the surface.
  • Moles primarily feed on earth worms which is why permanent removal is not 100% guaranteed.
  • Their tunneling behavior is extensive, creating complex networks of tunnels underground.
  • Moles prefer moist, loose soil and are often found in gardens, fields, and woodland areas.
  • Their activity can be overwhelming in the Spring when snow begins to melt and Fall as temperatures cool down.

Vole Activity:

  • Signs include surface runways, gnaw marks on plants, and the presence of burrow entrances in grassy areas or under vegetation.
  • Voles primarily feed on plant material such as grasses, roots, seeds, and bulbs.
  • They create shallower tunnels compared to moles, often hidden beneath grass or vegetation.
  • In the grass, you’ll notice what looks like as if a garden hose had been laying on the yard.
  • Voles inhabit various environments including grasslands, meadows, and orchards.
  • Like moles, their activity can be overwhelming in the Spring when snow begins to melt and Fall as temperatures cool down.

Grand Rapids Michigan Lawn Care – What Is Winterizer Fertilizer?

February 2nd, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

A Tuff Turf lawn care tech applying fertilizer to a customers yard.

By winterizing your lawn, you’re not just saving yourself from a springtime scramble; you’re also investing in the long-term health and beauty of your yard. This isn’t just a one-time fix; it sets the stage for a resilient and vibrant lawn throughout the seasons.

Giving your lawn some extra care before winter sets in, you’re essentially fortifying its defenses against the harsh elements. This proactive approach pays off when the freezing temperatures and snow arrive, as your grass will have a head start in developing a robust root system.

This strong foundation not only ensures a quicker return to lush greenery in the spring but also acts as a natural deterrent to weeds, giving your lawn a better chance of maintaining its pristine appearance.

The benefits of winterization go beyond aesthetics. A well-prepared lawn is better equipped to withstand environmental stress, such as extreme weather conditions and soil compaction. This means less maintenance and more time for you to enjoy your outdoor space when the warmer months roll around.

So, if you’ve winterized your lawn, you’re not just checking a seasonal to-do off the list – you’re making a savvy investment in a healthier, more resilient, and visually appealing yard.
