Army Worm Invasion

Army WormArmy worms become an issue for lawns in Newnan, Sharpsburg, Senoia, Peachtree City and Fayetteville around August and September. They move fast and can be very distructive. Army worms are easy to recognize. Chances are, if you have an infestation, your lawn will be covered with them. Army worms are an inch to 1 1/2 inches long and actively eat surface growth as well as root growth in warm season turfs in Coweta and Fayette County Georgia. Thousands can be found at one time in a lawn and they move fast. I have seen army worms in Newnan consume 15000 square feet of lawn in one day! The good news is that they are easily treetable. The key is to move fast, and prevent as much damage as possible. Call us today if you think you have army worms and let one of our turf experts evaluate your lawn.

Time for Fall Pre Emergent Applications!

Many people think spring is the time to start getting their lawn in shape for a sucessfull growing season.  That is not the case.  Late summer and early fall is the most importaint time of the year to have your lawn treated by a professional lawn treatment company.  Grassy weeds like nutsedge, crabgrass and dallis grass are treated in late summer and fall pre emergent applications start on September 1st.  A fall pre emergent application is the most importaint lawn treatment a property owner can apply.  Poa Annua is a cool season weed that will germinate in October and November.  You may recognize this weed as a bunch type turf that has large white seed heads in late spring (April – May)  Heavy stands of this weed will many times choke out desirable turf.  Property owners often spend all spring and summer trying to catch up while their turf is recovering from this incredibly invasive weed.  Give Mathis Outdoors Inc. a call today to have your lawn treated with quality products that will bring your lawn to it’s full potential.
