The recent rains have made your grass grow and grow and grow. And you have to mow and mow and mow. Keep after it. The end is near. Make sure to mow enough so that you can follow the 1/3 rule — try not to cut off more than 1/3 of the height of your grass blades.
It is warm enough now for grass seed to germinate. Some of our new clients have some bald areas after killing off weeds last year. You can see me walking around with the Garden Weasel® scratching up the soil surface before putting down new seed.
Problem: You may be seeing disease symptoms of snow mold or red thread on turf. Both diseases cause similar symptoms. Checking for sclerotia would confirm snow mold. Snow mold and red thread can look similar in turf.
Solution: There is no need to do anything for control. Turf will start growing and the symptoms will disappear. The first round of treatment will push new growth and help alleviate symptoms. A well balanced fertilizer program will help lesson damage to turf.
Time to start thinking “Green” Montgomery and Bucks counties. First round of fertilizer and crabgrass control is being applied. Make sure you are doing a good spring clean up of debris from the lawn. A light raking will help to air out the lawn preventing matting and spring disease activity.
This winter was an incredibly short, warm one. It felt great after last winter — an incredibly long one. But, unfortunately, the weeds in your lawn kept growing through December and never took a New Year’s Day holiday. It’s time to start thinking spring!
Here is what we are doing at GGL now:
• We are getting our equipment ready for the season. Now is a good time for you to take your mower to get serviced. Get those blades sharpened, oil changed and deck leveled. If you’re in need of assistance we recommend Moyer’s Outdoor Power Equipment.
