How to have a lush summer lawn

This time of year, it can be more difficult than ever to manage having a beautiful lawn in Indiana. Terry Jungels, owner of Total Lawn Care joined us today to discuss summer lawn issues. Here’s more from him:

We have cool season grasses here. They do great in the spring and fall, not so much in the summer. Some issues include types of grass in a drought.

Turf type tall fescue (All photos are the same lawn with different types of grass)
Bluegrass/rye mixture (All photos are the same lawn with different types of grass)
Dollar spot fungus (All photos are the same lawn with different types of grass)

A problem we are seeing more and more of is yellow nutsedge. It is a sedge plant so typical broadleaf weed controls do not control it.

Hot spots in lawns, around edges, mailboxes, curbs and even in the middle of lawns where construction debris, concrete etc. may be buried and heat up and bake the roots from beneath.
