Weather and Your Lawn
When it comes to your lawn, there are several factors that can affect its overall health and look. One of the main concerns, especially in the Coastal areas of Georgia and Florida, is the weather. Rain, heat, bugs and moisture can all wreak havoc on your yard if not properly cared for.
One of the best things you can do while caring for your lawn during the hot, wet summers, is to set up your sprinkler and irrigation system, and to start mowing with scheduled regularity.
Regularly Watering Your Lawn
Up and down water stress can trigger a disease known as bipolaris, which is caused by days where moisture stays on the leaves then a period where the ground dries out. Other possible causes include high nitrogen fertilizer, low potassium fertilizer, and scalping a lawn.
Bipolaris results in unsightly purplish brown to black spots with tan centers on your grass. Luckily, we have all the products necessary to treat this disease, including the correct fertilizer for your specific grass.
Mowing Your Lawn Regularly
The heat will cause any warm season grasses, especially Bermuda, to grow rapidly. During the warmer months, you will need to mow your grass more frequently to prevent scalping. Scalping is a bipolaris trigger condition and causes brown patches with little grass throughout your lawn.
