Lawn Disease Control

Lawn Disease Control

If a lawn is properly fertilized and treated for weeds and insects, it is not protected from potential turf disease damage. Due to certain environmental conditions and cultural practices, turf diseases may damage lawns at different times of the year. If you suspect or are concerned about damage to your lawn, disease control can be a possibility worth considering.

Common Questions About Lawn Care

Does Pre-Emergent Crabgrass Control Work?

A single crabgrass plant can produce approximately 75,000 seeds in one growing season. These seeds fall to the soil to continue the cycle in the following year. That is, unless you do something to remedy the situation.

Crabgrass pre-emergent (or preventer) herbicide is one of the first control materials you should apply to your lawn in the spring. The concept behind a pre-emergent is that you control the weeds before they emerge. These herbicides come in a wide arrange of formulations and active ingredients.

Pre-emergent crabgrass control is one of the services we offer as our Weed Control program. Learn more about how to limit this unsightly plant by reading our article: How does Crabgrass Control Work?

How can I water my new lawn?

People are often confused about how to water a lawn because it changes based on the atmospheric conditions and other variables. Just because it rains, doesn’t mean you’re getting enough water to your new lawn. Slow, steady irrigation will percolate slowly into the soil instead of running off. That’s what your lawn needs, like a light rain for 3-4 hours.

For more advice on how to water your lawn, check out our Guide to Lawn Watering.

How do I get rid of weeds in my lawn?

Weeds are unwanted plants that can grow in your flower beds or lawn, disrupting your beauty and can even affect the health of your turfgrass. At Tomlinson Bomberger, we recommend a proactive approach to managing weeds, treating your lawn before they even appear.

Learn about our weed control program or read our article on How to Get Rid of Weeds.

How can I improve curb appeal at my home?

Improving your home’s curb appeal can not only make your home more attractive to your family and neighbors, it can also have a positive impact on your home’s value.

See some of the ways landscaping can improve your home’s curb appeal with our Guide to Improving Curb Appeal.

What factors make a significant difference in the cost of installing an irrigation system?

The materials the installer is using make a difference. For example, PVC is more expensive than poly piping, but it lasts longer.

Other factors include whether it’s a new home or an existing home. It’s easier to install a system on a property that doesn’t have established turf.

Depth of the install is also important due to the freezing of the soil in the winter and turf maintenance requirements, like core aeration. You want it deep enough that it wouldn’t be damaged by aerating the lawn, which is important to turf health.
