    Ann on May 25, 2018

  • Help Your Lawn Avoid Winter Overkill

    Matt on January 26, 2018

    Over the last 90 days it looks like we’ve received just barely close to a half inch of rainfall and no snow or ice to speak of here in and around Oklahoma City. While missing out on the snow and ice I can agree is a good thing, missing out on the moisture is not, when it comes to our lawns and landscapes. » Read More
  • Time to Winterize Your Lawn

    Matt on November 3, 2017

    Winterizing the lawn is all about preparing it for the cold months ahead and is an important last step each season. Even though everything slows down near and above the soil surface there’s still plenty going on underneath the soil.  Providing the lawn with a late season shot of potassium benefits it greatly. » Read More
  • Need your Fescue seeded this Fall?

    Matt on August 30, 2017

    If you need help getting this chore done this year give us a call.  Late summer / early fall is the best time to seed the cool-season grasses (fescue, perennial rye) here in Oklahoma.  Seeding now allows healthy maturation of these grasses before becoming overwhelmed with spring and summer heat.  Really, this is why we over-seed to begin with – to replenish fescue stands that become thin as the summer heat and other stresses wear them down. » Read More
  • Be On the Lookout for Grubs!

    Matt on July 26, 2017

    A few weeks ago some parts of town were dealing with extraordinary amounts of May/June Beetles.  It was a buzz on social media and even a couple of news reports covering this.  May/June Beetles are the clumsy flying, sticky legged, bright light attracted big brown bugs that seem to spend more time on their backs than they do in the air.   » Read More
  • Getting the most out of irrigating

    Matt on July 14, 2017

    Now that the heat is on, the lawn becomes more dependent on water to maintain its growth and vigor. Coincidentally this happens at a time when beneficial rainfall generally occurs less often to help out.

  • Why Is That Lawn Blue?

    Matt Thomas on February 7, 2017

    Why is that lawn blue? Have you ever wondered why you occasionally see blue or blue/green bermudagrass lawns in the late winter or spring? More than likely the lawn had just recently received a weed control application. » Read More
  • Why test the soil?

    Matt T on November 17, 2016

    Testing the soil not only provides information regarding the macro nutrients present in the soil it also more importantly reveals the soil pH. Soil pH is the measure of the acidity vs. alkalinity of soil using a scale of 1.0 to 14.0 with 7.0 being neutral. Here in Oklahoma turfgrass and many landscape plants perform best when the soil pH is slightly acidic (between 6.5 and 7.0). When the soil pH is too high or too low (further away from neutral) it becomes increasingly more difficult for turfgrass and landscape plants to utilize the nutrients available from regular fertilization.

    Matt Thomas on July 13, 2016

    You may have noticed the fall webworms already at it this summer.  These nuisance pests affect various trees in our great state, most commonly persimmon, pecan and walnut.  With fall webworms out this early we could see infestation of oak, birch, sweet gum, sycamore and red bud trees as well this season.

  • Why Are There So Many Dead Spots?

    Matt Thomas on May 2, 2016

    It is not uncommon this time of year to see some bermuda grass lawns riddled with circular dead spots.  These spots are actually the remnants of damage caused to the bermuda grass in spring and the previous fall from a soil disease known as Spring Dead Spot (SDS). » Read More
  • When Can I Start Mowing the Bermuda Grass?

    Matt Thomas on March 4, 2016

    With the fair weather there has been opportunity to get out and start the early season yard work.  You’ve probably noticed many homes and businesses having done some selective pruning/cutting of landscape plants, leaf removal and perhaps even mowing already.  If you’re itching to get out there and mow and clean the yard up, have at it!  I would simply advise not to go too low with the mowing yet. » Read More
  • Spring Weed Explosion Still to Come

    Matt Thomas on February 15, 2016

    Where are the weeds!? Approaching only 30 days left before the official start of spring (March 20th) and while we are seeing increasing early spring weed activity each week we have yet to see the typical weed explosion we usually experience this time of year. The biggest reason for this is the current lack of soil moisture. » Read More
  • Help Combat Mosquitos and Ticks

    Matt Thomas on June 4, 2015

    The weather pattern this spring has really provided a favorable environment for some nuisance insects. Two notorious insects we should really prepare to battle this summer are mosquitos and ticks. Some species of mosquitos will thrive due to the wet conditions this spring and ticks also favor the moist shady conditions. With fewer opportunities to mow our lawns and trim our shrubs there is leafier vegetation benefiting ticks and mosquitos are taking full advantage of all the standing water. Because these conditions have persisted for some time these nuisance pests are already populating rapidly and will soon be bothersome to many of us and our pets. » Read More
