Warm Season Turf Bermuda grass is a warm-season turf that likes heat and is extremely heat resistant. It has fine leaves, a medium green color and grows with little maintenance and normal care. Bermuda grass is a vigorous and dense turf.
You should start mowing in mid-March to begin prepping the lawn for spring. Mid-March mowing at a height of 2-2.5 inches will aid in controlling perennial weeds and begin the chore of “scalping.”
Scalping begins after the last frost, which is usually in April. Lower the mower setting each week so that by the end of the month you are cutting as close as possible without the mower blades contacting the soil, approximately 1.5-2 inches.
Zoysia – Warm Season Turf >
On Zoysia grass, “scalping” must be less aggressive or injury will result. Begin mowing at 2.5 inches weekly after the first of April. In West Georgia, the typical frost-free date is April 15. After that date, start lowering your mower height weekly to 1.5-2 inches by the first of May.
As with Bermuda, Zoysia that is mowed less than one inch will grow a better turf density, but only if your terrain will allow for closer mowing, if there are no water restrictions in place, and if you have a very small lawn or have ground irrigation.
Fescue is a cool season turf, and the cooler months of fall are the right time to prep it for the coming year. The best fescue begins in the fall with core aerating, reseeding and proper care. In the late winter and early spring, it is time for post-emergent and summer pre-emergent and balanced fertilizer. We provide the right blends of fertilizer in the spring to help your “cool season lawn” handle the Georgia heat and humidity, which are a Fescue lawn’s worst enemy during the warm season ahead
Centipede and St. Augustine >
This low maintenance, general purpose grass has very slow growth and requires less mowing than other grasses. Once established, this warm season turf will act as a natural weed barrier as it crowds out weeds. It is the lightest green of warm season turfs and has a medium texture.
On Centipede lawns, a good year-round mowing height is 1.5-2 inches. Fewer problems are noted in Centipede lawns that are maintained at 1.5 inches. At that height, centipede runners will have better soil contact and root development is achieved during the growing season
