What We’re Doing In Your Lawn This Spring

During the spring months, Village Green will make lawn health visits 3 thru 5 to our customers on one of our Lawn Health Plans. These spring visits are similar to each other as we will use high nitrogen, 28-3-10, or comparable fertilizer on all healthy grasses: bermuda, St. Augustine, and zoysia. Struggling lawns will receive an individual root-feeding fertilizer 18-46-0 made from diammonium phosphate. We like to use this on St. Augustine lawns with Brown Patch or similar diseases because they do not want to feed on this type of fertilizer.

Speaking of Brown Patch, we are watching our St. Augustine lawns closely for any fungal issues in April. Brown Patch is a fungus that can attack St. Augustine lawns in the spring because of ample rain mixed with warm days and cool nights. Damp, cool conditions can lead to Brown Patch. We treat the affected areas to prevent the fungus from spreading if we see it in our St. Augustine lawns. The timing of when our lawns come out of dormancy depends on our temperatures. Warmer temperatures mean our lawns will come out of dormancy early in April. Cooler temps mean it will be late April into early May.

Amyworms Have Invaded North Texas

Armyworms have invaded North Texas. We have been getting a lot of calls from concerned customers wondering if their lawns are dead. In today’s update, I’ll show you a yard that has sustained armyworm damage.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

So, what caused them, and what do all these armyworms do to lawns? Armyworms love summer rains, which we’ve had plenty of this year. They cause short-term damage to lawns and landscapes by chewing the leaves off of the plants. Armyworms don’t like St. Augustine, but if they are in a bermuda lawn, they can leave it looking like a lawnmower scalped it on the lowest setting in a matter of days.

The good news is your grass isn’t dead. It’s just cut back, and it will eventually fill back in. It may look bad for some time, and the armyworms are creepy, but there’s no long-term damage.

The treatment for armyworms is to spray an insecticide such as Bifenthrin or wait for them to pass.

The Importance of Being Vigilant About Drought Stress & Chinch Bugs This August

As I’ve mentioned, weather-wise, 2021 has been one strange year. From record-setting cold in February to what for us was a very mild June and July, we seem to have finally got our summer heat in August. In over forty years, I can’t recall a year where our summer heat started this late. But now that it is has arrived, we’re noticing many lawns are beginning to dry out, which can quickly turn into drought stress. This is a severe concern for lawns in our area as we head into August. We find that two-thirds of the lawn issues we see in the field are the result of under-watering. This is because a person isn’t watering long enough. Either because their sprinkler system isn’t set correctly, or they have unknown sprinkler system issues. It doesn’t take long in this type of heat for a lawn to develop drought stress, leading to a lot of lawn-related problems. The most serious by far is chinch bug damage (you can read more about that below.) How do you know if you have drought stress? These quick videos can help you diagnose a problem in your Bermuda or St. Augustine lawn has issues (or give us a call at 972-495-6690.)

Are Amyworms Invading Your North Texas Lawn?

This year has been a strange one weather-wise, so it should come as no surprise that we are getting reports of armyworms invading North Texas lawns. We had an outbreak of these in the fall of 2018. Pretty much every bermuda lawn had them. This year isn’t as bad as 2018, but we have seen them in many of our bermuda yards.

So, what caused them, and what do all these armyworms do to lawns? Armyworms love summer rains, which we’ve had plenty of this year. They cause short-term damage to lawns and landscapes by chewing the leaves off of the plants. Armyworms don’t like St. Augustine, but if they are in a bermuda lawn, they can leave it looking like a lawnmower scalped it on the lowest setting in a matter of days.

The good news is your grass isn’t dead. It’s just cut back, and it will eventually fill back in. It may look bad for some time, and the armyworms are creepy, but there’s no long-term damage.

Mid-Summer Lawn Update for North Texas

Considering our February freeze, I’m not surprised that our summer has been relatively weird for North Texas. Our July has been cool and wet, so most lawns in the area are lush and green as we head into August (which is not typical.)

In today’s video I’ll share with you everything we’ve been seeing in our customer’s lawns, as well as some great takeaways about the importance of proper watering.

[640],shadow=true,start=,stop=

There is one crucial thing I bring up toward the end of my mid-summer lawn update. It is about chinch bugs which are, in my opinion, the biggest threat to North Texas lawns. We’re heading into the time of year when we see less rain and temperatures will get hot, and lawns become dry. This is the kind of weather chinch bugs thrive in, and make no mistake, they can destroy your yard.

St. Augustine Lawn Update for North Texas

The fallout from the North Texas February winter storm is still affecting many in North Texas.

It is especially true for those who have St. Augustine lawns. It is no big surprise that some St. Augustine lawns are showing signs of freeze damage. After all, St. Augustine is a tropical plant and does not do well when temperatures bottom out to zero!

Be sure and watch our St. Augustine video update below on what we are are seeing in the field.

Loropetalum (a.k.a. Purple Fringe Flower) Update for North Texas

In early April, we received so many calls from people worried about their fringe flowers (also known as Loropetalum.) These popular plants took a real hit from the February freeze. I did a video specifically on Loropetalum (watch it here https://youtu.be/CpzRgOBtxFg​).

I’m happy to share some good news from all that freezing weather we had in February in this video update. Not so fast on Lororpetalum (also known as Chinese Fringe Flower), we see signs of life for some of them in North Texas.

Be sure and watch the video to learn tips on what you can do to help your Loropetalum come back.
