Moss

How to Identify and Treat Moss

Moss can grow in spots that are inhospitable to other plants. Excess shade or water, soil compaction or imbalance in the pH level can all help moss to invade an otherwise healthy lawn. To reduce moss, cut back tree limbs, ensure proper drainage or aerate to reduce compaction. A soil amendment is the last resort.

Tree Saplings

How to Minimize Tree Saplings in your Yard

Uninvited tree saplings or sprouts growing under a mature tree can negatively impact the appearance of a yard. The best options to stop growth are pulling the saplings up by the roots or, if they are too small or too numerous to pull, mowing regularly.

Zoysia Patch

How to Identify and Treat Zoysia Patch

This disease attacks zoysia grass when it’s emerging from winter dormancy. Grass blades take on a tan-orange color and initially form small patches about the size of a dinner plate, but can quickly expand to 20 feet or more in diameter. Treatment for this fungus is applied to lawns in the fall.

Treat Rust

Aeration and Overseeding

Aeration pulls out small plugs of soil to break up compaction and allows vital air, water and nutrients to travel down to the roots. Overseeding fills in bare or thinning spots left behind by the stress of summer heat. Prepare your yard by mowing and watering the night before aeration and overseeding.

Mowing

How to Identify and Treat Scale

Scale insects damage plant tissues by sucking out the sap, robbing them of vital nutrients. When these pests attack, plant growth is stunted; leaves may develop yellow blotches; the branches may die, and some or all of the leaves may fall off. Your Atlanta lawn care professional can treat this issue with a systemic insecticide that is absorbed by a plant and kills off these pests.

Treat Rust

How to Identify and Treat Grubs

During autumn, grubs in your lawn’s soil begin to feed on grass roots, which can cause your grass to turn brown and die. Contact your Atlanta lawn care professional at Arbor-Nomics so they can apply a pesticide while grubs are small and close to the surface of your lawn, making this treatment most effective.

Mowing

The Right and Wrong Way to Mow Your Lawn

A healthy, green lawn is the result of a combination of factors including effective watering and fertilization, but mowing is another part of that equation. Proper lawn mowing practices can mean the difference between a green lawn and a yellow one.

Treat Rust

How to Identify and Treat Dallisgrass

Dallisgrass is one of the most troublesome weeds in the Southeast. It forms distinct clumps in mowed lawns and produces tall, unsightly seed stalks. A combination of hand-pulling and selective herbicides is the best way to control Dallisgrass.

Shade Decline with Leyland Cypress

Leyland Cypress grows best where they get full sun to partial shade. Browning foliage often occurs on a stressed or weakened tree and can be caused by lack of sunlight.

Treat Brown Patch

Cryptomeria Canker Disease

Cryptomeria Canker Disease will cause individual branches of the tree to turn orange in color, then brown. Often only one or two limbs initially exhibit symptoms, but the disease may spread so that many are affected. Infected limbs should be removed by a lawn care professional.
