Lime Yard, by Turf Touch

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Winter’s a good time of year to lime yard, even though lime can be applied any time of year.

Lime will add cal­cium and mag­ne­sium, and it will neu­tral­ize acid, which is caused by tree, shrubs, fer­til­iz­ers, soil types and other issues.

Lime will cre­ate a healthy root base.

Lime must be applied heav­ily, one or two bags will not do, apply ten to fif­teen bags(40–50# bags) on an aver­age 10,000 sq. ft. lawn.

One Caveat: DO NOT apply lime to CENTIPEDE lawns.

Turf Touch will be glad to do this ser­vice for you, if you so desire.

Until we meet, keep your lawn green.

Deep Root Tree & Shrub Fertilization

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Greet­ings once again to our read­ers, fol­low­ers and seri­ous lawn-care friends, today we desire that you know it’s a good time to deep root inject your trees and shrubs.

What is deep root fer­til­iza­tion? It’s when each plant is injected indi­vid­u­ally with a tool which resem­bles a large hypo­der­mic nee­dle; hence, the fertilizer(liquid) will sat­u­rate the ground around the root system.

Though the deep root fer­til­iza­tion may not take an imme­di­ate effect, over the processes of the year, it will slowly help the plants.

Once the weather gets colder, it’s a good time for this appli­ca­tion, and it’s healthy to do this once if not twice a year, just around October/November and again around January/February.

…wish­ing you a green, happy year.

Stay in touch!
