Happy GroundhogDay– only 46 days to go until spring officially arrives! I am also reminded that it is hard for Ohio weather patterns or sports teams to do anything consistently for 6 weeks. Not trusting a Pennsylvanian rodent- we sought a second opinion from Buckeye Chuck, Ohio’s groundhog, who also predicted six more weeks of winter. Even if Chuck’s prediction is right, spring is just around the corner. Who is looking forward to the first whiff of a spring breeze and fresh-cut grass ??? Like many of you, our team here at Portage Turf Specialists is gearing up for warm sunny days and lawncare perfection.
Are you prepared to deal with snow mold issues stemming from an extended period of snow cover? Snow mold is a disease that will give your lawn a plastered down, yellow look. Snow mold will kill the top growth of the turfgrass, and in severe cases will continue to smother the crown and roots of the plant and kill the plant. A light raking with a leaf rake is all that is necessary to provide oxygen to the crowns and roots for a complete fully organic lawn recovery! Think light- you are just looking to lightly fluff the lawn and provide oxygen, not remove any material.
As spring approaches, Portage Turf Specialists encourages you to consider professional lawn care. What is your plan for your lawn this coming year? Did you take care of your own lawn last year adding to your already busy schedule?
