The average lawn has too many problems to just make one or two visits. Our idea is to give you complete service year-round with our 5 Step Lawn Program.
- Nutrition – Our fertilizing program provides a balanced turf food to give healthy turf a nice green color.
- Pest Weeds and Grasses – Our two-phase treatment controls (1) Broad-leafed weeds such as dandelions, chickweed, henbit, and (2) Spring annual grasses such as crabgrass and foxtail.
- Mowing – Bermuda Grass should be mowed to a height of 1 to 11/2 inches depending on the variety. Fescue and bluegrass should be mowed 2 to 3 inches in height. Mowing should be frequent enough so that not more than 1/2 of the leaf blade is removed at one time
- Watering – Hot, dry Oklahoma summers weaken turf resulting in an unsightly dormant turf condition. Proper irrigation and fertilizing will enable you to maintain your lawn in a healthy, attractive condition even during this period. The soil 3 to 5 inches below the surface should be moist enough to form a firm ball that will not fall apart. If this soil test fails, add more water to lawn.
- Over shading – Bermuda is a sun-loving plant, requiring more than 60 percent sunlight to thrive. Where Bermuda does not receive adequate sunlight because of over shading by shrubs, trees, or structures, the condition must either be corrected or satisfactory ground cover such as fescue, ivy or ajuga should be planted in these heavily shaded conditions.
- Insects – Armyworms, grubs, sod webworms, chinch bugs, and bermuda mites infest bermuda lawns. Their diagnosis and treatment are necessary to maintain a healthy turf .
- Winter Kill – Freeze-out usually occurs in March when a hard freeze (below 20 degrees) occurs after a warm period, especially when the soil has a low moisture content. Heavy watering is recommended about March 1 if there is adequate soil moisture. This procedure will lessen freeze damage to both turf and shrubs.
