Tolle's Tidbits - Your Lawn is Thirsty All Year Long

January 25, 2012

Our Director of Customer Care, Chad Tolle, is our new homeowner's best resource for home health advice. Our E-Newsletter, Tolle's Toolbox, will circulate bi-monthly and tie back to different tips he and the Customer Care Team share through our blog. The first tidbits regarding yard maintenance are crucial given this mild temperature we have had so far this winter season. One surefire way to watch a potentially beautiful lawn deteriorate is by not quenching its thirst throughout the seasons. Healthy LawnTolle states the following in regards to wetting your lawn's whistle: Continue to water new sod, shrubs and trees as weather permits. Grass turns brown and trees lose leaves due to changes in seasons. Make sure to still care for lawn and landscaping. Winter can bring precipitation, and yet Oklahoma weather is anything but predictable. If climate dictates no moisture for a week and the temperatures are mild enough to do so, it's time to water. Watering the grass during winter months can continue to help secure root establishment. This will assist in making greener, healthier lawns when the season changes. Another thing to consider - avoid herbicides if your lawn is less than a year old. Herbicide will kill your dormant Bermuda. This will leave your lawn in disarray upon the arrival of spring. We will post more advice soon. If you have tidbits of advice you would like to share regarding home health, email kboone@ideal-homes.com.
