West Michigan Lawn Care: How To Prevent Lawn Diseases

June 7th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters
An overly watered lawn can lead to various diseases.

 

Use this guide to prevent and treat lawn diseases caused by excessive moisture.

 

  1. Water Deeply and Infrequently: The infrequency helps encourage deep root growth.
  2. Water Early in the Morning: This helps grass blades dry out during the day, reducing fungal risk.
  3. Check Soil Moisture: Ensure soil needs water by probing it before watering. The screwdriver trick works great.
  4. Mow Properly: If a diseases shows up, raise your mower deck and let the grass grow a little longer than normal.
  5. Avoid Night Watering: Cool sunless nights create an environment in the yard for fungus and diseases to flourish.
  6. Aerate Regularly: Improve soil drainage and reduce compaction by performing a core aeration every other season.
  7. Spot Water: Focus on dry spots to prevent overwatering other areas.
  8. Tuff Turf Service Calls: Take advantage of our on site quality checks to help further diagnose.

West Michigan Lawn Care: Easy fix for crabgrass and yellow nutsedge

May 17th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

In The Field: May 13, 2024 – May 17, 2024

Crabgrass is a particularly challenging “grass” to manage in the yard. It is often considered the most troublesome due to its prevalence in many lawns. Effective control of crabgrass requires the application of a pre-emergent herbicide throughout the season. Fortunately, for our lawn care customers enrolled in a full program, we offer complimentary spot treatments and service calls for crabgrass control as needed throughout the season. Please note that to benefit from these crabgrass control services, the initial application must be applied, making it an important consideration for your lawn care plans for the next season.

Similarly, Yellow Nutsedge is another persistent “grass” that can appear in your yard. Like crabgrass, Yellow Nutsedge is highly noticeable. It stands out for two main reasons: first, its vibrant neon green color contrasts sharply with the rest of the lawn. Second, it grows rapidly, resulting in tall, obvious blades that protrude above the rest of your lush, green grass. As with our crabgrass guarantee, we provide spot treatments for Yellow Nutsedge for all our lawn care customers on a full program. It is most effective to spray Yellow Nutsedge once it has grown tall enough to be easily identified. This ensures accurate application and allows the herbicide to reach the base of the plant for more effective control.
