Removing Dead Lawns

Every homeowner has to go through dealing with these dead spots and bare patches in your lawn, time to time. Even though you take a better care of your lawn, but a time will come when it needs a repair, sooner or later. Animals, poor soil conditions, and soil infections can cause dead patches in your lawn.  They look like brown, dead spots which have no or minimal growth of lawn grass. They are not difficult to fix.

Your lawn grass always needs an aerated soil which can hold moisture to drain excessive water in it. You should aerate the whole lawn, even though there are only a couple of dead areas in your lawn.  This can improvise the complete health of your lawn turf.  Aerating can easily pull out small plugs from the soil. These holes can help water to go deep into the soil.

Caring Tree Diseases

Trees are also prone to diseases and require a proper treatment. It gets difficult to identify diseases in tree because the cause of them are microbial organisms and they spread by microscopic growth and spores. Infectious tree diseases – those diseases that involve not only a tree host, but also an infectious pathogen such as certain fungi, bacteria, nematodes, phytoplasmas or viruses – are among the most vexing maladies that we deal with.

Trees and woods are crucial. They provide homes for wildlife, clean air and water, food and fuel. But they’re under threat. A proper tree care should be taken to cure them from these diseases. Tree diseases can affect any part of the tree, including the tree as whole. For example, we have leaf spot, leaf blotch, needle cast, scab and blister, defoliation and yellowing or chlorosis as named symptoms.

Basic Lawn Care-Tips

The arrival of summer heralds a time of increased wear and tear for the average garden lawn. Children’s yard games, barbecue parties, outdoor sports and generally more activity in the garden means your lawn is set to come in for something of a beating and without a little TLC is likely to start showing more than a little worse for wear. Stomp all over any living thing and it doesn’t respond too kindly but with a little help, your lawn can remain looking great all through summer and beyond!

Fertiziler-For a lusher, healthier, faster-growing lawn you can’t beat a bit of fertilizer. Test your soil type and choose a fertilizer to compliment this for best results. Most lawns will benefit from around three to four fertilizer applications through the year, with the first around a month before the start of the growinf season to give your grass a kickstart and then up to three more with approximately a two month gap in between applications can give good results. You can either spread the fertilizer by hand if you have a smaller lawn area to cover or use a specialist spreader tool for more even coverage, using a drop spreader for small lawns or a rotary/broadcase spreader for bigger areas. After fertilizing it is generally a good idea to water-in the fertilizer or plan on adding fertilizer before an expected rainfall unless otherwise stated in the usage instructions. The important thing with fertiliser is to follow the manufacturer guidelines and not be tempted to over-do it.  An excessive application of fertiliser is not a good thing and can lead to fungus, over-growth and weakness. Keep to the guidelines and you’ll get that lush, thick green grass you wanted.

Watering-If you live in a hot climate or dry region, and particularly during the summer months then regular watering of your lawn is important. The best time to water a lawn is early in the morning or late in the afternoon to achieve the best results. Avoiding evening watering is advised as soaking grass over night can increase the risk of lawn diseases and mid-day watering when the sun is hottest increases evaporation and water wastage. Excessive watering is also something to avoid and ensure if you use a sprinkler you do actually get out there and move it around rather than allowing large puddles to form whilst other regions of the lawn area remain dry. Too much surface lying water can starve the roots of oxygen and lead to the same symptoms (leaf rolling) as lack of water.
