Taking care of your lawn in our tropical climate may seem daunting. Your grass is under constant stress from heat, drought, weeds, insects, humidity, poor water retention, fungus and the list goes on. Correct nutrition is key to maintaining a healthy lawn. That means you have to know how to fertilize; what fertilizer to buy, when to apply and how to apply it. Diligent pest control is needed to win the battle against insect intrusion. Some insects are beneficial to your grass, while others can devastate a lawn within days. Weeds are also a challenge. Because of our Florida heat, it is important to apply just enough herbicide to kill unsightly weeds without damaging your good grass.
Mr. Traub, the founder of Lawn Care Extraordinaire, has been facing these challenges professionally since 1979. Nearly for the past 4 decades he has perfected the methods and practices needed to keep grass in Southwest Florida healthy, lush and green. The first step to a healthy lawn is water. Proper watering during the dry season is a must. Dry areas only encourage insect activity and weed growth. Good nutrition is second on the list. Our sandy soil does not retain enough nutrients naturally. Correct fertilization techniques are necessary to replenish the soil and feed the grass. Finally, a special mix of fungicides, herbicides and insecticides, applied regularly will keep out those ugly weeds and pesky pests.
