Grub Control

Posted on June 11, 2013 at 12:30 PM Comments comments (292)
Dear Customers,
With Rounds 1 and 2 just about in the books it is now time for the round 3 grub control applications to begin. Our round 3 applications for our NON ORGANIC customers, consist of Granular Merit Grub Control(24-0-8). It is very important for this product to water in within 48 hours of being applied to your lawn and all round 3's will be completed by July 15th, to give your lawn the best possible results in avoiding grub issues in the future. If this product is not watered in, we cannot guarantee the results.
It is very important that the grub control application is completed in a specific time frame. Grubs are the larvae stage of the Japanese beetle and in August or early September depending on weather, the female Japanese beetle will fly down and lays her eggs in your lawn. The most desired location for a Japanese Beetles to lay their eggs is any sunny and hilled area of your lawn. You can prevent grubs during the season with proper watering throughout and preventative treatments.
(Grub Damage)
Elite Turf Care is also offering new customers 10% off grub control treatments now until July 10th, 2013.(Make sure you mention you saw this deal on our blog)

Snow Mold...Snow Mold....Snow Mold....

Posted on March 21, 2013 at 8:18 PM Comments comments (76)
Welcome to our blog!
Our blog was created for customers to receive tips, information and recommendations to improve their lawn and property.
With the record amount of snow we’ve received this winter you can expect one thing in the spring: snow mold. Snow mold is a fungus that appears on your lawn after long periods of snow exposure. There are 2 different types of snow mold, pink and grey. Pink snow mold causes dead spots near the melting snow, with a pink outer ring. This is sometimes confused with red thread. Grey snow mold also causes dead spots near melting snow, but has more of a grey and brown color to it, sometimes mistaken for insect damage.
On the left is a picture of pink
snow mold which has the pinkish outer ring. The grey
snow mold is on the right, and has the grey and brown color.
Solution: Getting your last mow in the fall is very important as longer grass is more susceptible to this fungus. Removing all debris off of the lawn for the winter season such as leaves and sticks is also vital, that is why it is important to get that fall clean up done. Avoid piling the snow from the driveways and walkways on the lawn if possible. The best option to rid your lawn of this fungus is a fungicide curative application. In some cases, depending on the severity of the snow mold, it may need more then one application. Not treating this fungus can do serious harm to your  grass such as: discoloration, soil compaction, and healthy grass suffocation creating bare spots.
If you have any questions or would like to receive a free lawn care quote to remove this fungus from your yard, please email or call us at 978 537 4912 or [email protected]
