  • Don’t cut of more than 1/3 the blade

 

 

Irrigation

  • Don’t overwater.
  • Water less in cooler fall months.
  • About 1 inch a week total irrigation spring & summer.
  • Water deeply, frequently, and in early AM.

 

Weed Control

  • Pre-emergents prevent weeds from germinating.
  • Post-emergents kill weeds after they germinate.
  • A thick, lush lawn is the best deterrent to weeds.

 

 

Disease Control

  • Overly wet grass + shade = fungus problems.
  • Apply systemic fungicide to prevent fungus outbreaks.
  • Use multiple fungicide applications to treat affected areas.

 

Insect Control

 

  • Use a broad spectrum insecticide that controls chinch bugs.
  • For a once-a-year treatment, July & August are good months.
  • If using a granular insecticide, water in after application.
  • Look for insect damage on grass blades and/or roots.
