Advice for the Challenges of Home Lawn Care

Lawn Care Academy was developed to offer helpful advice to all who have dreamed of having a great looking lawn. It is all here, from the proper way to do a soil test to developing a complete fertilization program. You will find everything you need to know to do it correctly and safely. A beautiful lawn is a work of art, a joy to look at, and a pleasure to play on. It increases your home's curb appeal and raises property values.

Let's face it. Beautiful lawns have never occurred by accident. Nature alone can't produce quality lawns. In addition, home lawns face many challenges from multiple grass types and excessive shade to poor soil. Maybe your past attempts at lawn improvement have not been very successful. Take heart, you are not alone. So whether you have zoysia grass or tall fescue, Centipede grass or Kentucky bluegrass, we have you covered.

You will find more than just lawn information here. You can learn the latest techniques for caring for trees and shrubs too. We are adding more information all the time. Everything from how to plant a tree correctly, prune a young tree for sound structure, and treat insect and disease problems.

After years in the home turf and tree industry, I have found that the majority of people would love to have a better lawn, but just don't know what to do to make it look its best. They often turn to the wrong sources for help. It could be a well meaning neighbor or a store clerk who may not have had any real knowledge of turf management. Even some "professionals" seem to know little about turf science. As a result:

  • Many have gotten bad advice
  • Used the wrong lawn seed
  • Used the wrong fertilizer
  • Over fertilized
  • Burned their grass
  • Encouraged disease growth
  • Watered and mowed improperly
  • Used the wrong pest controls

If any of these sound familiar, don't worry. Lawn Care Academy was written for you. You will learn how to improve and care for your lawn from the soil up. Think of it as the homeowner's version of Turf Science 101.

With the current environmental concerns, lawn care is becoming more environmentally friendly. Organic and organic/synthetic blends are getting more attention. As a result, more products are being made available to the public. This is good because organic matter is an essential element in healthy lawns. It restores the beneficial microorganisms in soil that is necessary for plant life. You can learn what products are available, their benefits and limitations and the best ways to use them.

When talking about environmentally friendly approaches, tree micro-injection is the safest way of treating trees. Arborists have used micro-injection for years. Now you can treat diseases, kill damaging insects, and fertilize trees without any collateral damage. No chemicals are sprayed, but safely injected directly into the tree. These products will be coming soon. We hope to be offering this soon.
