Our warm-season lawns should be at their peak of performance over the next couple of months with adequate cultural practices of fertility, watering, mowing and pest management.
Pest management is often neglected until the lawn is in serious trouble. Scouting for insects and diseases should be a part of your weekly lawn activities just as mowing.
Do you keep records of pesticide applications to your home lawn? There are many benefits to thorough record keeping on the pesticides we apply to our home lawns.
