Whats is the best type of grass to have in my lawn?
More often than not, this is purely a personal preference but there are some situations where you need to have a certain type. The most prevalent type in our area is St. Augustine. If you have any questions about the different types or even what would be best for you, feel free to contact us to set up a free consultation.
Should I fertilize my lawn?
Fertilizing is a great thing for your lawn. Over fertilizing however is not. There is a fine line between helping and hurting your lawn. We offer a fertilization program that is worry free to the customer and will provide you with a healthy, happy lawn.
At what height should my yard be cut at?
Depending on your turf type, some lawns require a higher cut to remain healthy.
St Augustine 3 inches plus
Bermuda 1/2 to 2 inches
Centipede 1 to 2 inches
Zoysia 3/4 to 1 1/2 inches
The thing to remember with turf grass is you never want to remove more than 1/3 of the grass height in a single mowing. If you remove more than that, you run a high risk of damaging the turf and allowing pests, weeds and insects, the opportunity to take over. If you want the height of your turf to be 2 inches, then you need to cut it when it reaches 3 inches for optimum turf health.
If it is hot and my plants are losing leaves, does that mean that they are dying?
No. Typically when plants become stressed they will lose their leaves so that they can protect the core of the plant. Stress can come from heat, lack of water, pests, herbicides and many other things. Typically if you have a plant that is not looking like it used to or supposed to, contact us immediately so that we can diagnose the problem and get it taken care of. The longer you wait the more likely it is that we will lose the plant.
