One of the most frustrating things about lawn fungus is that you can do everything right—and it’s sometimes still unavoidable. Lawn diseases like Brown Patch and Dollar Spot are common in Cincinnati and Dayton, OH, and Northern Kentucky, and when the conditions are right (hot and wet), it may be inevitable.

As consumers, we are surrounded by options. A quick trip to the local big box store or even a search on Amazon reveals so many different products that it can be hard to choose. In fact, psychologists have come up with a name for the overwhelming feeling that comes from having so many choices—”overchoice”.
If you feel like you’re experiencing overchoice in trying to choose the best lawn fertilizer, we understand your frustration. With so many options out there, it’s really difficult to know what’s best.
The last thing you want to do is make a poor choice that will lead to poor results as that’s just a big waste of money.
We only have one Earth as our home. For that reason, we find that more people than ever are paying closer attention to ways that they can protect and improve their environmental impact.
But what about their decision to hire a lawn care company? Is lawn care bad for the environment?
The short answer is no—if you choose a company that is being environmentally conscious in the way that they perform their services. Even better, you might want to choose a company that even implements eco-friendly practices into their daily business operations.
Keeping new trees and shrubs alive requires a lot more attention and care than most people realize. It might look like your plants are in fine shape, but the stress they’re under is actually enormous. It can take many years for young, new trees and shrubs to become acclimated to their new growing conditions and you want to do everything you can to support them and protect your investment. After all, the last thing that you want is to have to replace your landscape because you didn’t properly maintain it early on.
When it comes to your lawn care and the treatments you may need, you need a professional you can trust. The average person doesn’t know much about the chemistry of lawn care and must often put their trust in a lawn care professional’s hands. But knowing who you can trust may be an intimidating decision.
If we were to ask you what the ultimate goal of a lawn care service should be, you'd probably say "a healthy lawn." We would venture a guess that you're thinking in terms of thickness and color-and perhaps most importantly to you-a lawn that is weed-free.
But what's the real secret to achieving that? Why do golf courses and ballparks often have the nicest appearance around, and what are they doing that you may not be?
While a lot of people assume that trees are self-sustaining, the truth is they require regular care if you truly want them to be the best they can be.
Trees in urban and suburban environments are under a lot more stress than trees of the forest where nutrients are readily available. In a forest, fallen leaves naturally decompose and provide a nutrient rich soil which is moist from ample shade, and without the competition of turfgrasses.
People like things that are easy and for good reason. Our lives are already so busy, the last thing that we want to do is waste unnecessary time on tasks that can be simplified.
Are you looking for the secret to a spectacular lawn? That is, the secret that sports turf pros already know? You might think that this is confidential information that we wouldn’t share, but the truth is, we talk about it a lot. If you’ve read any of our blog articles before or talked to one of our team members, then you might already be aware that the secret to a great lawn is soil health—which is accomplished by adding lawn bionutrition on a regular basis.
If a lush green lawn is your goal, then you know how frustrating it is to be set back by thinned out or bare areas. You want to be able to step on a thick carpet of grass and get the full enjoyment out of your lawn. However, when there are patchy areas where grass isn’t growing in, it can detract from the overall look of the lawn, and therefore your level of enjoyment.
If your lawn is not filling in the way you want it to, then you may suspect that you need to seed. What you may not know is which seeding method is best for your situation. You want great results at a reasonable price—but you’re not sure which tactics will get you that.
