Tips from Toby – The Heat is On!
All that rain that helped our lawns so much in May is now causing some problems right now. So much rain at one time robs the lawn of oxygen which doesn’t allow the roots to grow deeply. Homeowners are worried whether they are just seeing heat stress or disease. Before you panic and turn on the sprinklers, watch Toby’s tip of the week. Watering a lot or too much could do more harm than good right now. This week we show you how to keep that lawn growing well, when and how much to water, how to mow during this heat and other essentials to keep from spreading disease or having heat stress problems.
Tips from Toby – Early Fall Dormancy
The extremely dry October along with the warmer temperatures have left some pretty brown lawns all over town. It's easy to mistake this for heat stress, but our lawns are so dry they are actually going dormant early. Lawns usually don't start going dormant until early December, so letting them go to sleep now means they won't thicken, gain strength and absorb nutrients throughout the Winter leaving sparse and unhealthy lawns next Spring. We need water and Toby tells you what to do and how to get those lawns to wake up and be healthy again.
