Before starting on a lawn fertilization
program, it's a good idea to measure
your lawn to determine total square
footage. Measure the length and
width of the lawn area and multiply
(Example; 100' length x 100' width
= 10,000 total square feet). If
your lawn is in sections measure
length x width of each section
then adding the square feet of
each section together to determine
total square footage. Doing this
will let you know how much fertilizer
or other products to apply.
Plus contains a whopping
16% Iron for deep greening
of Centipede grass. Ever
wonder how that Centipede
sod shipped from south Georgia
sod farms comes in so green?
Wonder no more! (A 25 Lb.
bag of Iron Plus covers
5,000 to 10,000 square feet.)
Apply during growing season.
- Centipede and St. Augustine
lawns are quite drought tolerant,
however, during long dry periods
it may be necessary to give the
lawn a deep soaking once a week
or so to maintain healthy appearance.
Do Not water lawns in the late evening
or during the night as this may
promote the development of damaging
fungus. It is best to water during
the early morning or daytime hours
when the sun will quickly dry off
water from the blades of grass.
Pests - The most
common pest in centipede
lawns is the spittlebug.
The spittlebug has a wedge-shaped
black body and two red lines
that run across its back.
They usuallly appear during
summer if there's been lots
you walk across your grass
and it sounds squishy, or
you see a spit-like substance
here and there in the grass,
most likely you have spittlebugs.
spittlebug management is
easy to do. If you find
these critters in your lawn
mow the grass and then broadcast
Triazicide Granules as soon
as possible. Be sure to
read and follow all directions
on label. Do not apply chemical
24 hours prior to rain.
Make sure to turn irrigation
system off for a few days.
