Have you struggled to solve the puzzle of yellow or brown patches in your yard? Several factors could be at play:
Warmth or sun exposure can be the most obvious. Some yards may slope south and get more sunlight while others are stuck in the shade. Shady spots will always be slower to green up than the sunny ones and will require more time to ‘wake up’ in the spring.
A yellow lawn can be a sign that your lawn is chlorotic or lack proper nutrition. Our late fall application is helpful in preventing this. Lawns are hungry for more than just water! We can help you find the right balance.
The more compacted the soil is, the less warm spring air gets down to the roots, slowing down growth. Aerating your lawn at least once a year can prevent this. Another simple tip to consider is a light raking of your lawn to reduce any matting that may exist. This will also help your grass breathe.
Some species of bluegrass green up earlier than others. They may also have different healthy color characteristics – some may be a slow-growing dark green while another is a fast rising lighter color.
