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.
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.
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.

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.
