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!

West Michigan Lawn Care and Bug Control – Why It’s Critical To Do Both

February 14th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Importance of Lawn Care:

*Environmental Benefits: Lawns contribute to cleaner air, soil conservation, and water filtration.

*Aesthetic Appeal: Well-manicured lawns enhance property value and provide recreational spaces.

*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.

*Preventing Human Health Risks: Insects can cause allergies, bites, and indoor intrusion.

*Preserving Biodiversity: Integrated Pest Management balances pest control with conservation efforts.

 

Lawn care and bug control are intertwined. By embracing the correct approach to lawn care and bug control, homeowners can create greener, healthier environments for both humans and nature. Let’s commit to nurturing our lawns to make your yard the most enjoyable part of your home!

Tuff Turf Molebusters turns 25!

January 28th, 2019 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Happy 25th Birthday to Tuff Turf Molebusters!  January 24, 1994 was the day Jim Zylstra incorporated Tuff Turf.  In 2000, Tuff Turf puchased a mole trapping company named Molebusters and officially became Tuff Turf Molebusters.  Jim had the unique idea to put a mole on the top of his truck in 2005.  By the end of 2006, most of trucks were topped with moles.  The bright green and orange color scheme came about in 2009 along with an updated logo featuring Digger the mole.  Tuff Turf has continued to grow and in 2018 moved to the heart of Byron Center.  Tuff Turf is proud to be celebrating 25 years in business!

 

 


Watering Tips

July 16th, 2013 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

This week will be a scorcher. Do not wait for your lawn to turn brown before you sprinkle. If you wait for the lawn to turn brown it takes 4 times as much water to bring the grass back. I am afraid this email may be too late for some, but make sure you are watering your lawn twice a day now. Once at 4:00 AM, and again at 1:00 PM, assuming there are no sprinkling bans in your area. Your grass is a lot like humans. If you work or exercise outside all day you need to take care of yourself by drinking lots of water on a continuous basis. It would not be wise to try to conserve your bottle of water until you are light headed, your sweating stops, you have stomach cramps, dizziness, and other signs of heat fatigue. An IV and a trip to the urgent care cost a lot more money and time than bottles of water throughout the day.
Watering Your Landscaping

Trees are the opposite of grass. Trees need deep watering cycles. Put a garden hose out at the base of your ornamental trees and let it trickle for several hours. Just because your grass is green, that does not mean your trees are getting enough water.

Mow your grass as high as you can, or skip it this week. Mowing your lawn during this heat can stress it out.

I post these tips on Facebook. I would like to know how much you are watering to keep your grass green. Please comment on our Facebook page because I know there are other clients that are curious as well. I have not heard about any sprinkling bans in the Grand Rapids area. Please post if you are in a sprinkling ban.

Make sure to take care of yourself and your pets.


Dry Lawns

In this heat, make sure to sprinkle the grass twice every day.  The lawn on the left is sprinkling, but not nearly enough.
