Our Weekly Watering Recommendations
Areas of College Station, Bryan, and NW Houston have continued to experience hot summer days. With the exception of very little rainfall in some areas of Houston, it’s been another dry week. Our recommendation is to continue your weekly watering schedules to provide at least 1.5 inches of water to your lawn. Watering 3 times per week in long sessions is the best practice to reach the root zone. Homeowners can also keep the “cycle and soak” approach in mind. With this method, longer irrigation can be split into sessions spaced throughout the day to give the water time to soak into the soil before beginning a new cycle. Waiting 60 minutes between cycles can help limit water loss while still allowing your lawn to receive healthy and efficient watering.
Weed Control Tips for Persistent Summer Weeds
As we are in the dead heat of summer – literally – weeds are living a good life, receiving everything they need to thrive. Perennial weeds, which can’t be prevented with pre-emergent, can be a persistent problem in Texas lawns. However, ongoing lawn maintenance and good cultural practices are important keys to effective weed control and suppression. Following a proper mowing schedule at the recommended heights for your grass type will keep weeds premature, limiting their defense against herbicides. Healthy mowing and annual aeration also strengthen your lawn’s turf density, which acts as a natural barrier against weeds. Successful lawn care takes teamwork and good lawn maintenance along the way will only amplify the benefits of our service on your lawn. Thank you for being a part of our Aggieland team!
