September 2015 - Important things to look out for on your lawns !!!!!!!
Firstly sorry for not giving out any tips for a while but i felt this news is important so please look out for....... Cranefly and their larvae - Leatherjackets
This is what they look like
Holes from birds pecking at insects
Dead areas appear as the insects eat the grass roots
Another problem that we see a lot of this time of year is -
Worm casts cause a lot of damage to lawns at this time of the year with very little benefit to your lawn, if you have a lot of casts on your lawn then let them dry and brush them away with a stiff bristle brush and try not to flatten them when wet as they will create dead areas of grass.
Or you can give us a call and we can treat the area with a worm suppressant to send the worms deeper into the soil which will greatly reduce the destruction caused by this problem - just give us a call.
