3 Steps for Growing Lush, Green Grass

Spring is here! Does your lawn look the way you want it to? Maybe you’re coveting that Yard of the Month sign from the homeowners association or your grass isn’t as green as your neighbors’. Maybe you’ve had problems with your yard for several seasons and you’re ready to take action. Either way, it’s the perfect time to stop wishing for a lush lawn and start working to achieve one.

The most important place to start is your grass. No one will notice your colorful flowers if your grass is brown and dead. If you’re ready to grow the greenest grass in the neighborhood, contact Mid Georgia Turf Solutions. We specialize in the following grasses and more:

  • Bermuda
  • Zoysia
  • Centipede
  • Augustine
  • Fescue

Fertilize Your Grass

Your lawn might not have all the nutrients your grass needs to grow long and healthy. One of the most important steps to ensuring the health of your grass is regular fertilization. At Mid Georgia Turf Solutions, we strategically apply fertilizer in the early spring and summer so that your grass can remain healthy throughout the heat of summer.

Don’t Forget the Soil

Luscious grass starts at the roots. If your soil is compacted, the grass’ roots can’t grow deep into the ground or produce a healthy lawn. Compacted soil is easily fixed through aeration, poking holes into the soil to allow oxygen, water, and nutrients to flow freely. We use a hydraulic core aeration machine to quickly and powerfully aerate the soil more deeply.

One step many homeowners forget is to test the pH level of their soil. An off-balance pH level can indicate nutritional problems. If you don’t take care of the pH your lawn will never look healthy, no matter how diligently you care for it. Mid Georgia Turf Solutions provides both aeration and pH testing. If we discover that your soil is below 6.0 pH, we apply lime to bring it back into equilibrium.

Be Proactive in the Fight against Weeds

If you’re applying weed control after weeds have already grown, you’re applying it too late. We begin treating weeds like crab grass in the early spring, long before these weeds have had a chance to show in your yard. Pre-emergent herbicides are made to target weeds before they begin to grow, but they don’t compromise the health of the grass you want to keep!

Mid Georgia Turf Solutions offers a one-year lawn care program that includes all of these steps, so you don’t have to worry about them. For more information, call us at 478-992-5705 for a free estimate. We’ll beat any competitor’s price by 10%.
