Lawn Disease Control
One of the best ways to prevent lawn disease is to have a healthy lawn. Fertilization, weed control, and insect prevention all help to strengthen the immunity of a lawn. Just like you take vitamins and eat well to maintain your health, your lawn needs the same. Call Lawn Crocs if you suspect lawn disease or if you just want to take the appropriate measures to prevent it.

In the United States lawn grubs may be the most damaging turf pest. The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the Japanese beetle grub worms cause an estimated $234 million in damage every year. That’s $156 million to replace damaged lawns and an additional $78 million in grub control costs.
Grub worms are the larvae stage for many different beetles. The most common of these beetles is the Japanese beetle. Grubs feed on the root system of turf. In large enough numbers these grubs can cause patches of brown, thinning lawn, and damage to the turf. The actual turf damage is caused by moisture lost from the reduction of root mass. Call Lawn Crocs today and rid yourself of this troublesome lawn pest.
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and Ticks are some of earth’s nastiest critters. They are parasites that live off the blood of mammals. At Lawn Crocs, we spray an application over your lawn that kills and prevents fleas and ticks. As an added bonus, this application also helps to control mosquitoes.
Lime helps neutralize acidic soil. Most good looking lawns don’t need lime, but if your soil is too sour and has slipped out of the PH zone that keeps your grass happy and healthy, lime will sweeten it up again and help keep your lawn in good shape. Once a lawn is in place, it is best to lime in either spring or fall.
Overseeding is one of the most important lawn care tasks. Grass is not immortal. After five or six years, grass plants will slow down their reproduction rates; they get tired just like we do as we age. Thin grass invites weeds, so be sure to overseed every year only in the fall and keep a good mix of young and old grass.
Lawn aeration is an important part of maintaining a healthy lawn. Aeration is a process of removing small plugs of soil and grass to help water and nutrients reach the turf’s root system. Your lawn needs oxygen, carbon dioxide, water and sunlight. Oxygen is important to the turf’s root system. It uses oxygen when it metabolizes the sugar that is stored from photosynthesis. The plant will starve if it doesn’t have oxygen.
