Bahiagrass is an aggressive mat-forming perennial in many southern lawns. It is a warm season grass that spreads by seeds and shallow underground rhizomes. It is native to South America and is common in the Gulf States.
Moving affects the overall quality of turfgrass. Mowing affects a turf's density, texture, color and uniformity. Even if you water and fertilize your lawn correctly, its overall quality is compromised if you don't mow it properly.
Mowing Heights and Frequencies
Different turfgrasses require different mowing heights:
Shade is a wonderful benefit of trees but a major challenge for growing turfgrass. Although growing grass under trees is difficult, there are some important tree and turfgrass management principles involved in successful coexistence.
Georgia's landfills are filling up and closing at an alarming rate, and citizens everywhere are recycling to help them last longer.
Brown Patch on turfgrasses is caused by a fungus disease named Rhizoctonia solani.
Brown Patch symptoms in turf
Circular patches of dead grass that range from a few inches to several feet in diameter. Occurs during periods of high humidity and warm temperatures (75ºF to 85ºF). Georgia's summer climate is ideal for this fungal disease to thrive! Brown areas of dead grass are surrounded by a reddish-brown or purplish halo. After 2 to 3 weeks, the center area of brown grass may recover and turn green resulting in a doughnut shape of dead brown grass.
Ground covers are a great choice to plant where grasses won't grow because of too much shade. Areas too narrow for shrubs or difficult to mow are perfect for these low-growing plants. Many need very little water. Their wide-spreading habits will cover large areas in an attractive green foliage.
Georgia lawns are under attack. Fall armyworms are chewing their way through turf, leaving destruction in their wake.
Easy, But Slow Compost - Pile leaves, grass and cut up branches in an out-of-the-way place in your yard. Wait a year and then dig underneath the pile for the finished humus the worms have made for you.
Quick Compost - Make a compost pile or bin about 3 feet wide and 3 feet high.
Late June and early July is a good time to treat for mole crickets. Mole crickets are tan-colored, cricket-like insects that feed on plant roots. They are about one inch long, with short, stout forelegs, spade-like feet and large, dark eyes. Young are like adults but without wings and smaller and darker.
How do you know if a lawn has mole crickets? Unfortunately, it is easier to scout for mole cricket injury earlier in the year. Mole crickets themselves are small and very hard to see in June and July.
