A few years ago I had an infestation of ground ivy in my yard. Ground ivy is very difficult to get rid of. I tried myself for a couple of years but it kept coming back. I hired a lawn service to take care of my lawn with the specific instructions that they must get the ground ivy under control. It was worse after a year. Walking thorough my neighborhood I looked at which lawns looked better and saw they were being serviced by Portage Turf Specialists. I contacted them about taking care of my lawn and especially the ground ivy problem. Portage Turf got rid of the ground ivy in one year and the lawn has never looked better. I've used them for several years now. They are very responsive to any issue. I've had small patches of ground ivy pop up every now and them. I let them know and they address it specifically very quickly. They do a great job of keeping the lawn in good shape.

The crew has done great work to care for our lawn. Over 2 years now and the lawn is 100% improved. And we have terrible soil. So if it can be improved here, they will do miracles for you too. Well worth it.

Used 2 other national companies in the past with poor results cancelling their service at the end of each year. As a result, have applied fertilizer, weed control, insect / grub control, aeration and overseeding myself for many years. In 2021 did not notice I had army worms until it was too late...they destroyed my yard. I contacted Portage Turf Specialists and they recommended a cost-effective lawn restoration program (they have several options)…their aeration machine is unlike any I have used or seen and the results are much better. Based on the great experience, I continued with them this past summer for all the things I previously did myself mentioned above. The yard looks fantastic. Their programs, products and people are superior. Best of all, the cost was less than I could do it myself. If your yard does not look fantastic, talk with them to understand their difference.

What Are Chinch Bugs And Damage To Look For

Chinch bugs can wreak havoc on your lawn, turning lush green grass into unsightly patches of yellow and brown. At Portage Turf Specialists, we understand the importance of swift and effective treatment to protect your lawn from these destructive pests.

Chinch bugs thrive in hot, dry conditions, feeding on the sap of your turfgrass and causing significant damage. Identifying an infestation involves looking for tiny black bugs with white markings and irregular patches of damaged grass. To combat these pests, start by deep watering and applying a targeted insecticide. For a more comprehensive solution, trust Portage Turf’s lawn insect protection services to ensure thorough control.

After treatment, focus on recovery by reseeding, fertilizing, and aerating your lawn. With consistent care, your lawn can bounce back stronger and more resilient.

For professional assistance in managing chinch bugs and maintaining a beautiful lawn, contact Portage Turf Specialists today. Let us help you achieve a vibrant, pest-free landscape.

How To Manage your Lawn In Times Of Heat

Maintaining a lush, green lawn during periods of drought and heat stress can be particularly challenging for cool-season turfgrasses like Kentucky bluegrass, fescue, and ryegrass. These grasses thrive in cooler temperatures and can struggle when exposed to prolonged heat and dry conditions. Proper watering and mowing practices are crucial to help your lawn survive and thrive through tough times.

Water your lawn deeply and infrequently, aiming for about 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week, including rainfall. Early morning watering is ideal to reduce evaporation and minimize disease risk. Adjust your mowing practices by setting mower blades higher and mowing less frequently to reduce stress on the grass.

Understanding the signs of heat stress, disease, and insect infestations is also essential for effective lawn care. By following these tips and closely monitoring your lawn’s health, you can maintain a healthy, resilient lawn even in the harshest summer conditions.
