Here’s a tip.


Water & Fertilization

Mowing Care

Seasonal Care

Fertilization during drought conditions

419 Bermuda

Do not apply excess nitrogen and create excess top growth in the turfgrass plants during the spring months. Creating excess top growth will affect the plants ability to develop a deep, extensive root system necessary for survival later during the summer months.

If water use is restricted, DO NOT FERTILIZE.

Take a soil sample and have it tested. Potassium is a key nutrient in stress tolerance for turfgrass plants, including drought tolerance. If soil potassium levels are low, then apply a fertilizer in the spring that has both nitrogen and potassium in the fertilizer.

Tahoma 31 Bermuda

Bermuda is especially drought resistant, recovers from damage and wear especially quickly, and doesn’t require extensive maintenance that other grass types require in the area.

Zeon Zoysia

To maintain a healthy appearance during the hottest months of summer, Zeon Zoysia needs about 1 to 1 1/4 inches of water a week. On sandy soils it often requires more frequent watering, for example, 1/2 inch of water every third day. A light green-grey color and narrowing of leaves indicate that it is time to water. Proper irrigation may reduce pest problems in the summer.

NOTE: Always water during the early to late morning hours and never at night. Watering at night may cause fungal development

IronCutter Bermuda

IronCutter requires frequent, low rate N applications (4 to 5 lbs./1,000 sq ft annually) to maintain the highest turf quality. Potassium, phosphorous, and micronutrients should be applied based on a soil test. For minimum maintenance, a complete fertilizer like 16-4-8, 10-10-10, or 12-4-8 can be applied in spring and fall with additional applications of nitrogen in the summer. Irrigation on an “as needed” basis is the most effective way to maintain proper moisture. Irrigate at the first signs of moisture stress.
