Turf Lawn Care Georgia

Lawn Maintenance in Georgia  has the same requirements as any other area in the world.

Lawn Care around the world is basically the same depending on the type of turf grasses growing. The two (2) main types of grasses include Cool Season and Warm Season grasses.

General Lawn Care

Cool Season grasses include grasses such as Rye grass, the different Fescue grasses like Tall Fescue, and Kentucky Blue Grass. All these grasses are grown from seed into a single stem plant. Cool season turf is grown from seed by turf suppliers and growers, and can be installed as turf rolls. If the turf has suffered any damage or thinning out, the lawn area can be over sown with the same grass seed to increase density of the turf grass. It is important to understand the germination characteristics of different seed varieties and when is the best time to spread the seed for best seed germination results in Georgia .

These grasses (including Kikuyu, Couch/Bermuda, Zoysia, Seashore Paspalum and Durban) with both stolons and rhizomes are characterized by their robust nature and rate of recovery in Springtime. In particular, Kikuyu and Couch grasses are used widely in sports field situations, and as such can be mowed quite short depending on the turf grass’s use.

Annual Lawn Care

Any plant that grows where it isn't wanted is considered a weed. Gardeners spend countless hours toiling relentlessly in an effort to rid their yard of weeds. Chemical herbicides make the chore easier, but they can be expensive and dangerous to use. A simple, reliable weedkiller can be made from common chlorine bleach. Popular as a laundry aid, bleach is known for its ability to whiten and brighten clothing. However, the chlorine contained within the bleach is toxic to plant life. Direct contact with bleach chemically burns the plant's roots, causing dehydration of the tissues and the eventual death of the plant.
