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.
Does Your Watering Measure Up?
It's that time of year where just a day or two of hot sun and are lawns are browning up. Most of us run to turn on the sprinklers and that's where a lot of overwatering, disease and waste happens. Learn to water correctly by using a rain gauge to measure both weekly rain and your sprinkler system output. We'll also show you how harmful it can be to overwater.
