Village Green’s Tuesday Tip: We’re often asked, can a lawn be so far gone that you need to start over? The short answer is usually not. The lawn in this photo suffered what appears to be freeze and chinch bug damage. Back in February, when we got the call from the customer, this lawn was covered in broad-leaf weeds. It was so bad you had to look hard to find any good grass. Now in April, you can see the lawn has some bald spots, but it has very few weeds. As our days get warmer, these bald places will quickly fill in from the edges. If you look closely at the photo you’ll see runners are already starting. What’s our secret? Our good fertilizer program and instructing our customer on the proper watering schedule for their lawn.
