Lawn-Pro News Fall 2023

Time for that Recovery Period !!!

Water certainly has NOT been a major problem this season for our lawns and ornamentals, as our region is nearly 5 to 8 inches above our normal rainfall totals for the year.

However, along with the rain comes a much higher risk of weed activity. Weeds, like most any other plants, thrive with water. In most cases the weeds have been extremely aggressive, and with the abundant rainfall, weed control products have had a higher rate of failure requiring several weed control applications to hold the weeds at bay.

With our Fall Application being applied, this will address any residual weed activity, as well as boost your lawns nitrogen level. Along with the additional nitrogen, we also have added 5% iron to our fertilizer. The addition of iron is used to correct soil deficiencies and is considered a viable organic supplement to our fertilizer application. Iron will contribute to healthier root growth and vibrant greening of your lawn.

If you feel there is any additional assistance required, please do not hesitate to call our office and request a FREE service visit.

Lime Applications Being Applied

Along with your regularly scheduled Fall and Winterization fertilization applications, we are also applying your Lime Application during this period. This is the best time of the year to lime your lawn. Lime will encourage effective turf growth and recovery by allowing your lawn to better respond to the Fall and upcoming Spring fertilization applications.

Please keep in mind that lime is applied as tiny gray and brown pellets, and may not always be easily visible in your lawn. If you wish to check your application, a good way is to examine edges of walkways or driveways where some stray pellets may have avoided our clean-up process of the blowing off of these areas.

Flea and Tick Control

The second of three annual Flea and Tick Control Applications has already been applied. However, flea and ticks will continue to deposit eggs throughout the Fall season. The third and final application is scheduled to begin this Fall which allows for extended control through the winter months. The cold weather does not deter flea and tick reproduction. The third application will ensure a full cycle of control all season long that will carry you through the early portions of the following Spring season until your first Flea and Tick Control Application of the new year.

If you have not ordered a Flea and Tick Control Application in the past, it is never too late to start. Simply call our office for a free price quote and scheduling of the service.

Core Aeration and Overseeding

Core Aeration and Overseeding is also scheduled to begin soon, our schedule is already filled. We will be taking appointments for Fall, 2024.

Core Aeration and Overseeding is a mechanical process that extracts small cores from the topsoil approximately a half-inch in diameter and 1-3 inches in depth. Core Aeration alone will enhance turf growth, increase irrigation to the root zone and control and minimize disease activity. The cores left behind will dry and slowly disappear after several mowings.

With the overseeding added, this enables thin areas and areas that may have experienced some summer stress, to totally fill in with newly seeded turf.
