What can be done about pet damage?

There are really only two options:

  1. You can use water to dilute the area where your four-legged friend has urinated, or
  2. You can erect a fenced-in area dedicated for their usage

While I mow my lawn at night I notice small white moths flying low to the ground. Is this an insect I need to be concerned about?

Small white moths are most likely sod webworm adults. Eggs are dropped onto the lawn and hatch into caterpillars later in the season. Our early summer application includes surface insect control and prevents this turf feeding insect from being a problem later on.

I have skunks and birds feeding on my lawn. What is the cause and what can be done to stop this problem?

Eliminate the food source, or trap and relocate. Ideally, we recommend eliminating the food source. More than likely, your lawn has a grub issue. Grubs tend to be a problem during the spring and early fall months. They tend to feed on open sunny areas rather than shaded lawn areas. If the damage is too severe, then seeding will be required. If the damage is minimal, a curative surface insecticide can be applied. Our specialists take the preventative approach of controlling grubs by targeting the egg stage over the months of June and July and a curative approach in the spring and fall.

Moss is taking over areas of my lawn. What can be done?

We recommend a renovation and reseeding of the affected area, or a change in the environment where the moss is growing. The latter solution involves reducing the amount of water being applied through proper irrigation. Additionally, we advise increasing sunlight by pruning overhanging limbs and maintaining proper pH through pH adjustment applications when needed.

When is the best time to apply pre-emergent crabgrass control?

Applying pre-emergent control during the months of April and May is the best time – the earlier the better.  It is important to remember that crabgrass germination depends on soil temperature (a consecutive warmth of a minimum of 60 degrees Fahrenheit for at least a week).
