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: Chipmunks are smarter than we think

May 24th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

In The Field: May 20, 2024 – May 24, 2024

Beautiful water views captivate and soothe the soul. At Michigan’s crystal-clear Gun Lake, we soaked in the tranquil scenery that makes us love this state. Ducks strolled by as we performed our lawn care service, adding to the peaceful ambiance of being by the water.

On the other hand, not everything is so serene—like chipmunks! We arrived at a property just in time to snap a picture of one scampering away. It’s as if they know who we are and why we’re there. If only there was a service to keep watch 24/7… Fortunately, our chipmunk trapping program does just that. We visit once per week for 6 weeks to remove any chipmunks caught in our box traps and reset them for the next week. This method is extremely effective, especially when homeowners clean up brush piles to eliminate hiding spots for the chipmunks.
