Week 14 - Early Apr Lawn Tips


Do You Like Your Lawn And The Dirt That Is Under Your Turf?

When’s the last time you took some time to truly evaluate the condition of your lawn and especially the soil under your turf?  This is a good time to do that.  You want to check the density of your turf and the percentage of your lawn that is weeds.  Truly dense turf has no weeds.  You want to know how deeply the roots of your turf go down into the soil.  If they are at two to three inches you are growing a lawn on seriously compacted soil and your grass plants are in continuous stress all season long = more disease and more pest insects.
