Why renovate a lawn?
You may want to consider renovating a home lawn if:
- The lawn species or variety is frequently attacked by disease or insects and it has caused the lawn to thin out,
- The landscape has become increasingly shady over time and the original lawn is thin and unhealthy,
- The lawn was severely injured or totally killed by disease, insects, or drought, or if it was winter-killed, or if
- You want to completely convert from one turf species to another.
Now is a good time to consider renovation. Bluegrass and fescues may be addressed any time from March – September. Buffalograss may be addressed April – July. Be sure to consider installing sod if you are starting a new lawn, or want to totally renovate your existing landscape. It’s good for the environment, it will increase your property value and provide beauty for years to come.
