Should You Overseed Your Lawn with Winter Rye

In the fall, we get asked if it is a good idea to overseed a lawn with Winter Rye Grass. Overseeding is scalping a lawn and then ‘overseeding’ with Winter Rye which stays green all winter in North Texas. Many homeowners want a green lawn year-round, so they overseed without realizing that it can cause problems to their lawn’s health.

Overseeding is not a good idea (especially if you have a St. Augustine or Zoysia lawn,) and in today’s quick [640],shadow=true,start=,stop=, we’ll explain why.

Do this in Fall and Winter for a Healthy Lawn in Spring

It is common in North Texas for homeowners to turn off their sprinkler systems in late fall and winter. Turning off your sprinkler system when our lawns are dormant is the last thing you should do if you want a healthy and thriving lawn come spring, especially if you have a St. Augustine or Zoysia lawn.

A properly maintained irrigation system is one of the best investments you can make toward your lawn’s overall health. As we’ve said in the past, two-thirds of all the lawn issues we run across are related to improper lawn watering. If you want your lawn to take off next spring, ensure your system is set for consistent and proper seasonal watering and if you need extra help, give us a call. Village Green offers affordable irrigation repair and maintenance. For more information, call us at 972-495-6990.

Important Update About Fall Brown Patch in Area Lawns

Brown Patch is a fungus that attacks St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns in the fall.

To understand Brown Patch, you must consider that St. Augustine and Zoysia are tropical plants. Our North Texas weather of a hot and dry summer followed by a cooler, damp fall creates an excellent environment for Brown Patch to thrive.

Recently, we’ve been seeing more and more of it in North Texas lawns, and in today’s quick video, we give you all the details on how to prevent, spot, and treat Brown.

How to Protect Your Lawn from Chinch Bug Damage

With our recent heat and lack of significant rainfall, we see a lot of drought stress in area lawns.

Drought stress is a severe problem in and of itself, but a far more significant and real threat to your lawn is chinch bugs which can cause considerable damage to St. Augustine lawns during our summer months (and they are easy to miss.)

Chinch bugs typically start near concrete, and their damage at first appears to be a dry spot in your lawn (which is easy to miss during a hot, dry summer like we are currently experiencing.)

If left untreated, this dry spot will spread, and your lawn will be in bad shape before you know it.

The good news is that chinch bugs are easy to control if you know you have a problem, and, in this video, we’ll show you everything you need to know to keep your lawn healthy.

Chinch bugs are easy to control once spotted, and in this video, I’ll tell you what we recommend.

Mid-Summer Lawn Update for North Texas

In this video, Ken shares an update on what we’ve been seeing in our lawn health customer’s lawns this summer. As you might imagine, we see a lot of drought stress in area lawns. We have received many calls from people wondering what is wrong with their yard and reports of other service providers saying there are fungal issues, chinch bugs, grubs, and even army worms.

Village Green has not seen any of that yet, mainly drought stress and rabbit urine damage (made worse if the lawn isn’t being watered correctly.) I think we’ll see chinch bugs eventually this summer. You can learn more about chinch bugs by watching the [640],shadow=true,start=,stop=.

This is How Much You Should Water Your Lawn This Summer

Summer officially arrives in North Texas on June 21st which means it is time to get your sprinkler system ready for summer watering.

In summer, your soil loses the most water, and we recommend watering roughly an hour per week per zone in full sun.

We recommend that you water in ten-minute bursts two days per week at 2 a.m, 4 a.m., and 6 a.m. during the summer.

DOWNLOAD WATERING GUIDE

We recommend watering at these times because it is cooler, which means less evaporation. There is also less wind that can blow the water onto your driveway, sidewalk, patio, or street. Also, keep in mind that many of the newer sprinkler controllers have a seasonal adjustment which is easy to use with our watering guidelines. Finally, if your lawn has a lot of shade, you can cut your watering to about a fourth of what we recommend and be fine.

Important Note for Rotary Head Sprinklers and Drip Systems:
If you have rotary head sprinklers (they slowly turn and send out long streams of water), we recommend running twice as long as you would regular sprinklers since it takes them longer to put out the same amount of water. Drip Zones (drip systems work by maintaining a level of moisture in the soil.) We recommend that they run daily or close to it (roughly 10 minutes per day in the summer.) Since various drip lines water slightly differently, it is essential to pay attention to your beds to ensure they get the appropriate amount of water.
