Do you want a beautiful lawn you can enjoy all year long? South Florida’s unique climate is the perfect place for lush green landscapes, here at Professional Pestguard Exterminating Services, we know it's difficult to find the time to maintain thick, vibrant & healthy grass. Your grass has very specific nutrient needs throughout the year. We’ve designed our lawn care programs so that homeowners like you can have strong, healthy grass without having to worry about the details. Here are some easy tips:
Avoid over watering.
Mow grass at the right height to encourage deeper, more drought and pest resistant root system.
Leave grass clippings on the lawn to recycle nutrients back into the soil.
Use fallen tree leaves and pine needles on-site as mulch.
Avoid shearing shrubs, topping trees, and over-pruning palms.
Manually operate your irrigation system on an as-needed basis. Calibrate irrigation system to apply 1/2-3/4 inch of water per application.
Properly schedule irrigation run times.
Use a rain gauge to measure rainfall and irrigate only during prolonged dry periods.
Irrigate in the early morning hours when temperature and wind are low.
Repair broken and leaking sprinklers.
