Mowing high shades the soil so sunlight can't reach weed seeds ready to germinate. Other advantages of mowing high is to promote a deeper root system which has a greater tolerances to drought, insects, disease, nematodes, temperature stress, poor soil conditions, nutrient deficiencies, and traffic.
I mow my S. Keep the blade sharp and always mulch mow. Mulch mowing helps to recycle nutrients to the soils. WATERING: Generally speaking you should water no more than once a week in the middle of summer, but the best way is to let your lawn tell you when it needs water. Look for these signs:.
Lawns under drought stress will curl up their leaf blades in an attempt to minimize leaf area. Footprints or tire tracks remain visible on a drought-stressed lawn long after having been made. Your objective when irrigating is to get the maximum amount of water to the root zone without over-irrigating. Sandy soils will generally wet to a depth of 12 inches for each inch of water applied.
This will target the majority of the root system and encourage more rooting at lower depths. Irrigate early in the morning after 1am so that excess moisture on the leaf surfaces will dry during the day. To determine how long to run your sprinkler system to apply this much water, set out several tuna fish cans at random in each sprinkler zone and see how long it takes to fill them to the desired depth.
Be sure to check your irrigation system for uniform coverage at the same time. Persons requiring minimal maintenance for their lawns should have a low fertility program and apply pesticides only on a curative basis only. This consists of two fertilizer applications per year at the rate of 1 pound of nitrogen per square feet per application. The first application should follow the onset of spring green-up, and the last should be timed for late summer.
A high-maintenance lawn would receive 4 pounds of nitrogen per square feet per year applied in 1-pound increments during March, May, July, and September. With the current condition of your lawn I would suggest a high-maintenance plan for this year to help get your lawn back in shape. For next year you could switch to a lower maintenance plan.
If you can be patient and follow all the above practices you should have a nice thick lawn by this fall. Dont expect instant results, its going to take some time to get your lawn back, but it will happen. My only worry is about the weed and feed you put down. The only product that Im aware of from Scotts that is safe for S. Those are the golden rules of lawn care. Take them out with your husband and walk the lawn.
By the time you come back in, you and your husband need to have agreed on how you will follow scoot's suggestions. Mowing tall does not mean mowing more often.
Tall grass does not grow faster. Once it all gets up to the same height, it will be the best looking lawn on the block, even if it is all weeds. You will have to readjust your image of what a beautiful lawn looks like. Short only looks really good on a golf putting green.
Tall grass has many benefits and is ultimately the least maintenance of all. One think we grassaholics keep in mind is exactly when we do the things we do. Your experience last year with bermuda sprouting in 2 days would indicate that you sowed the seed in the heat of summer. Bermuda will not sprout like that any other time of year. This year you used a different seed at a different time of year and expected the same thing to happen. Unfortunately it is more complicated than you are hoping.
One thing you need to know. Now is the crabgrass seed sprouting season. It is also the grass seed sprouting season except for bermuda. When you care for your grass seed so it will sprout, you will also have crabgrass seed sprout.
This year Mother Nature is providing all the rain your seed and the crabgrass seed need. This year your ONLY defense against crabgrass is to mow at the mower's highest setting. Hopefully you will have enough tall St Augustine that the crabgrass will not take over completely. In the fall the crabgrass will die out and the St Augustine can make some progress back.
There are many ways to do this, but the principle is always the same: Deny your lawn sunlight and keep it moist. Within a few months, the grass will die and break down, enriching the soil and readying it for whatever is next.
With the economy still in a rough patch, spending money on lawn care makes no sense. This spring, turn yours into something more beautiful and useful.
