Spring has sprung and our schedule is filling up fast with homeowners seeking our help to turn their lawn around.

To lend a helping hand, we've gone through our archives of past lawn success stories and asked our team to choose their favorite ones to share some before-and-after pictures.

These turnarounds include a range of improvements, such as fertilizing, aeration, topdressing, and irrigation - which can transform an unhealthy or patchy lawn into a lush, healthy, and vibrant green space.

Check out our top 5 Lawn Turnaround projects:

1. Project Spotlight: Lawn Health Renovation
We had the pleasure of working with a client who had recently built a home in Oakmont and was fed up with their struggling lawn.

After a lawn consultation, we devised a comprehensive plan of action that included aeration, topdressing with Comand Compost, a Lawn Health Program, and proper weekly maintenance.

And guess what? In just 8 weeks, his lawn transformed tremendously! Check out the amazing before and after pictures.

2. Lawn Project Spotlight: From Stressed and Dying to Lush and Green
This lawn was in bad shape. It was drought-stressed, nutrient-deficient, and pest-damaged, and was deteriorating quickly. But with the expertise of our lawn health and irrigation teams, we were able to turn things around in no time!

We implemented a variety of solutions including proper sprinkler adjustments and repair, soil amendments, lawn fertilization service, weed control, and treating the lawn every 6-9 weeks with our lawn pest control program.

And guess what? In just a couple of months, this lawn went from being down and out to being the star of the show! We couldn't be happier with the results!

3. Lawn Project Spotlight: Zoysia Lawn spreads from Plugs to Picture of Perfection
This concerned client reached out to us regarding their lawn and was seeking help to revive it. They had planted Zoysia plugs in their huge front yard a year ago, but unfortunately, the plugs were being overrun by weeds.

The lawn had become predominantly dirt and weeds rather than lush grass. They wondered if there was anything that could be done to rescue it.

Our lawn pest control team took a soil sample, took some photos, and went to the drawing board to put together a program that would work. Their lawn took off like wildfire!!!

4. Project Spotlight: From Sandy Soil to Lush and Green
With our expertise and passion for transforming outdoor spaces, we were able to make this client's landscape dreams a reality!

We installed an irrigation system to get water to all of his plants as well as the lawn, and spread Comand Soil and Topdressing over the lawn to improve the soil composition. To top it off, we installed beautiful sod over his entire lawn.

And now, he sends us photos of his dogs happily playing in the backyard, showing just how much he loves his new and improved lawn.

5. Project Spotlight: Lawn Health Rehab
This client contacted us in hopes of diagnosing their lawn problems and wanted to see if there was anything to be done that would save it.

After an in-depth lawn analysis, we discovered active chinch bugs were not being controlled and eating away at the turf.

We then put together a lawn program that would help not only control chinch bugs actively, but preventatively going forward as well.

With some patience and understanding of a lawn program, it ended up saving about $10k of sod work because we did not have to add any sod or sod plugs - just proper lawn health and irrigation to keep it growing.

Your landscaping action plan for upkeep should change with the seasons. During the winter months in North Florida lawns, the grass is semi-dormant – growing but at a slower pace and almost barely growing at all. Not having to mow the grass as often leaves us with a bit more time on our hands to take care of other landscape projects that are perfect for winter months.

We've gathered some tasks to help you keep momentum in your lawn and keep your landscape looking beautiful during the winter. Don’t hesitate to share this to your neighbors as well!

This way, the entire neighborhood can look forward to a beautiful lawn in spring.

Tree pruning

Many North Florida homeowners think of Winter Crape Myrtle pruning (Crape Myrtle Pruning: When and How?) as the only winter tree pruning necessary. However, fruit trees and many of your typical Florida trees prefer pruning in winter over the other seasons.

Why? Fresh cuts are especially susceptible to insects during the warm months because they serve as habitats for germs and fungi that damage trees' health. Pruning during the dormant season keeps your trees healthy and reduces their susceptibility to attack as the weather warms and insect activity picks up.

This also ensures your Gainesville or Nocatee Lawn and Landscape gets proper sunlight to rejuvenate in spring.

When is the best time to trim/prune landscape ornamentals?

Remove fallen leaves from turf and flower beds

The trees in your yard lose their leaves for a few weeks every year. The timescale can vary depending on the kinds of trees you have, such as oaks, sycamores, pines, maples, etc. Leaves can suffocate your grass and block the sunshine that keeps it healthy if they are not controlled. Your only chance of having a beautiful lawn is to remove or clean up any fallen leaves. - As leaves finish falling, remove them from the lawn to allow sunlight and Lawn health applications to enrich your grass.

Granular lawn fertilization applications aren't affected by leaves as they roll down into the turf - however liquid and weed control applications are soaked up by the leaves, stealing the nutrients. This is why we recommend using a full-service lawn provider that offers Lawn maintenance service along with the lawn Fertilization program. Packaging them together ensures the two services work together for the health of your Gainesville lawn.

Protect sensitive plants during frosts

Even though the winters affecting Ponte Vedra lawns and the rest of North Florida are generally mild, a freeze will nevertheless happen.

Without winter plant protection, it only takes one night of exposure to wind and temperatures between 20 and 40 degrees for your delicate plants or shrubs to suffer cold damage.

Your more tender and tropical plants such as smaller Palms, Philodendrons, Crotons, Ginger, and others have a tendency toward frost damage on colder nights.

Pro Tip: Use fabric, bedding, light blankets, burlap, or other plant-specific covering that you may purchase at your neighborhood home improvement store. Avoid covering them with plastic since it will result in water droplets from condensation appearing on the leaves, which can cause freeze burn.

Tips for Covering Plants in a Freeze
What do I do with these frost damaged plants?

Power Wash your Home and Hardscape

Summer can leave homes and hardscapes moldy, slippery, and unsightly. Power washing aids in removing these buildups of dirt and giving a bright and fresh appearance.

Power washing a building's exterior can improve curb appeal in more ways than just by keeping it clean. Having hardscape and fences cleaned will also contribute to the property's improved curb appeal by giving it a more spotless appearance.

Schedule this prior to the holidays if you have guests coming over, or use it as a great Christmas gift in the form of a gift card for your significant other!

Pro Tip: Make sure to avoid power washing in  temperatures below 40 degrees. If the temperature is too cold, it could damage your pressure washer or the surfaces you're washing.

Prepare your landscape plants for spring

Plants frost back in winter and need care before spring to be set up for success going into spring. Starting now will help ensure that your St. John's landscaping is successful in the coming months.

When older growth is removed by strategically pruning back perennial plants like roses, hibiscus, and azaleas, they grow more densely and attractive. Be sure to remove weeds, fallen branches, dead leaves, and plant debris.

To defend against frost and avoid compaction apply a layer of compost to raised beds before covering it with a thin layer of mulch. We recommend Comand topsoil as a great compost for this. The compost's nutrients slowly seep into the soil over the winter. Still allowing both sunlight and rain, it also keeps the soil warm, allowing you to plant earlier in the spring.

Although the word 'pest' is typically used to describe an insect such as chinch bugs or webworms, the term is actually used to describe anything that is unwanted. (Perhaps you remember what you may have called your little sibling growing up?) In this case, a lawn certainly is not improved by being pestered with a lack of one of it's three basic needs) Wondering what pests may be the problem in your lawn? Check out our list of 10 common lawn pests and solutions to get rid of them!

1. Chinch Bugs

Chinch bugs are small pests that can cause a large amount of damage to your lawn. Chinch bugs suck the moisture out of grass blades, then replace that moisture with a poison that kills the grass. Lawns that have been affected by chinch bugs appear to have drought-like symptoms, including yellow, brown, or dead grass. Chinch bugs are most prevalent from late spring to mid-fall and are typically found in St. Augustine lawns, although they are occasionally found in Zoysia yards as well.

2. Crabgrass

Crabgrass is an annual summer weed. While it germinates in early spring and completes its life cycle by fall, crabgrass seeds can lay dormant in your soil, waiting for next season to bring soil temperatures above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Several different types of crabgrass can be found in Florida.

    • Gainesville Lawn Weed and Disease Control Tips
    • A Tool to Identify Common Gainesville Florida Lawn Weeds

3. Drought Stress

St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns are the easiest to diagnose drought stress in. Both leaves have a midvein that acts as a “spine” for each individual blade, allowing it to open and close as needed.  Healthy, well-watered grass blades will appear almost completely flat and totally open. When grass begins to dry out, the blade will close in half upon itself, to reduce its surface area to the sun and thus conserve water. This will also give the grass a “hazy” look, as the backs of the blades are not as deep a green as the enclosed fronts.

4. Tropical Sod Webworm

Sod webworms are a common nuisance in St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns. Sometimes they're just pesky and can be easily ignored, but often they can destroy a lawn as they multiply. Even minor infestations in poorly managed turfgrass stressed by hot, humid, and rainy weather can cause problems for homeowners and property managers. Because it’s difficult to detect this pest early on, managing sod webworms may present challenges without proactive lawn treatments.

5. Doveweed

Doveweed is an aggressive summer annual turfgrass weed. Its long leaves resemble St. Augustine grass in appearance, so this weed can grow unnoticed for some time. But doveweed doesn't just invade St. Augustine grass, it also takes hold in Bermuda, hybrid Bermuda, and zoysia grass. Not only can doveweed be an annoyance to people who are trying to grow turfgrass, it can also cause serious contact dermatitis for dogs that come in contact with the weed.

6. Take-All Root Rot

Take-All Root Rot is a fungal disease that lives in the soil and attacks turf when conditions are favorable. Most commonly, it is found in St. Augustine lawns, however it can also be found in Bermuda and even Zoysia turfgrasses.

7. Armyworms

The armyworm is the most common cause of damaged turfgrass on golf courses, athletic fields, and home landscapes.The larva of armyworms can cause rapid, significant loss of leaf tissue in turfgrass. They feed primarily on Bermuda and Ryegrasses in our area, but can also move to Zoysia and St. Augustine grass where they swarm.

8. Nutsedge

Nutsedge, also called nutgrass, is an aggressive weed that often plagues lawns in the wet seasons like we have been in. There are several different varieties of nutsedge, and they're all perennial weeds in the sedge family that regrow each year and reproduce in a manner that makes them difficult to manage.

9. Brown Patch Fungus

Brown Patch lawn disease is triggered in a consistent time of year as the weather transitions from Summer to Winter or Winter to Summer (transition seasons of spring and fall). Brown Patch will be identified by circular browning patches of lawn which will continue to grow in size from the size of a dinner plate up to a few feet in diameter. Multiple circles of Brown Patch are common on St Augustine lawns infected by the disease.

10. Broadleaf Weeds

Broadleaf weeds in North Florida lawns are not only a nuisance, but they actually make it more difficult for your grass recovering from winter frost damage to fill back in and recover. Weed control applications with pre-emergent and post-emergent products are a must for North Florida lawns looking to recover from a tough winter. Proper identification of weeds is a must for targeted control with so many different herbicides on the market.

Dealing with pests is often easier said than done. While you may find some success taking a DIY route, you’ll more than likely end up with incomplete pest control and recurring infestations. For best results, we recommend partnering with a professional team like ours here at The Master's Lawn Care with decades of experience and the industry’s leading products and technology, we are equipped to handle outdoor pest infestations of all kinds in North Florida yards.

When you take on a new lawn care client, you may think you know what products should be applied based on what you’re seeing in the turf. However, there is a lot more going on than meets the eye and this is where the importance of soil tests come in.

“It’s like going to the doctor,” says Mike Hall, COO of Spectrum Analytic, Inc. based in Washington Court House, Ohio. “They’re going order a battery of tests if you’ve never been to that doctor before to find out what’s going on inside your body. A soil test does the same thing. It finds out what’s going on in the soil so you can amend it properly and not just guess.”

Hall guarantees that if you pulled a soil sample from each house in a cul-de-sac the results would be different for each lawn, so it’s important not to assume the soil is the same as the other properties you care for in the area.

Soil tests can tell you what is deficient and what may be in excess in a lawn.

“That’s an enormously important thing to know because we live in a world where all the inputs that people are using are becoming ever more expensive,” says Bob Mann, director of state and local government relations for NALP and agronomist. “So, if you’re using them improperly to excess or not enough or not charging what you should be charging that comes right off your bottom line. It’s good business sense to know exactly what you’re dealing with on a per lawn basis.” 

When it comes to conducting soil tests it’s critical you gather enough cores. You can’t just pull one sample from a corner of a yard and expect it to tell you anything. Also, be mindful of what you’re sending to the lab.

“You want to get rid of the verdure, the growing portion of what you pull up, get rid of the thatch layer, that intermingled layer of living and dead tissue, and then the first couple of three inches of soil put in the bag,” Mann says. “You want to be specific to where the roots are going to be growing to the exclusion of all that organic matter.”

Majority of the time the sample bag from the laboratory will indicate where to fill it so you know the amount of soil to provide. Hall says if you are planning to treat the front and backyard the same, pull 10 to 12 cores and mix the soil well so you can treat the property based on that one sample. However, if there is a problem area in a yard, it’s best to do a separate soil test for that spot so you can properly diagnose the issue.

“Your results are as only good as the person that takes that sample,” Hall says.

As for when you should conduct soil testing, Mann and Hall agree that after taking an initial soil test for a new client, they should be placed on a three-year rotation. Mann says the best time to conduct soil testing is in the spring before anything has been treated so the soil test does not reflect any recent applications.

When selecting who to send your soil tests off to, Hall advises looking for a soil lab that has quality control methods, competitive prices and agronomists on staff who will help you understand the results. Mann says whether you choose to work with a cooperative extension or a private company’s soil lab, you need to establish a relationship with them first before sending them hundreds of soil tests.

“You want to set up an account first off, so they know who you are,” Mann says. “You want to tell them ahead of time ‘Hey, I’ve got 1,000 customers, and I want to do 333 soil tests every year. Put everybody on a cycle, plus I budget 500 new sales a year.’”

Once you’ve established a relationship with the soil lab of your choice, then comes the matter of deciding what tier of testing you want to go with. Mann says this depends on how detailed you want to get and how much you want to pay.

The most basic level of soil testing looks at the soil pH, which affects how other elements are taken up by the grass. For those who are applying lime no matter what, they can be compounding the problem if the soil pH is already over 7.

“Grasses grow in a wide range of pHs but you want to be in that proper range so the other elements in the soil, the micros and macros, are taken up by the turf,” Hall says.

Another soil test level is looking at the nutrient levels in the soil – both the macro and the micronutrients. The third type of testing level looks at the physical aspect of the soil including the level of organic matter, the texture and the cation exchange capacity.

Mann says it’s important to work with a soil lab so you are not overwhelmed by the results. They are a resource for your company.

Both Mann and Hall advise not absorbing the cost of soil testing. Instead, communicate to the customer why soil testing matters, and provide them a PDF of the soil test results so you can back up why you advise making certain applications.

“I think it’s like anything else, I’ve never found a hospital where they did free blood testing,” Hall says.

Depending on what lab you’re using, you’ll get some basic recommendations back from them, but how you interpret those recommendations is what really matters. Dr. Frank Rossi from Cornell University says don’t let the data lead you astray.

“What he meant by that is don’t just look at the soil test numbers in a vacuum,” Mann says. “You have to be engaged in a constant effort to educate yourself as to what’s going on.”

While soil testing can ensure you have better success with your lawn care practices, it also helps with significant savings, so your company isn’t applying expensive products that are unnecessary for certain properties.

“We want you to be successful,” Mann says. “We want you to be professional. We want you to be a trusted resource when it comes to this and part of that is getting engaged with soil testing.”

The Master's Lawn Care conducts a soil test in partnership with UF-IFAS and their turfgrass department on Hull Road to ensure our programs for lawn health clients are tailored for each lawn's specific needs, related to soil, grass type, cultivar, amount of sun, and other property dynamics.

Topdressing with Lifesoil's Comand Turf Builder is a game cheaper for your lawn. It makes an amazing difference specifically for client's with poor soil quality for one of these reasons. The soil is available throughout the southeast, but it is formulated and we apply the topdressings locally in Gainesville, Florida lawns.

Builders sand: Your home was built within the past ten years and was built with primarily Archer fill dirt or builder's sand. As you heard in the video, Comand topdressing helps add moisture retention ability and nutrient uptaking capacity for the roots of your lawn.

Clay: Your lawn struggles to grow deep roots due to compacted clay soil. Aeration and  Comand lawn dressing will add some nutrients rich soil as well as non-compacting loose soil to begin to set roots into.

Soil Born Diseases: Soilborn Diseases in lawns can be reduced by removing the diseased soil and applying new organic compost to reduce the spread. This is not a cure, but an improvement for the soil.

Topdressing a Zoysia Lawn with Comand Organic Soil

We are now in the winter months and keeping your lawn maintained is just as important now as it is in the spring and summer. Even though your lawn growth has slowed during this season, the soil microbes are still busy at work. Whether you have concerns about watering, rooting, or weed control, we have a few tips to help you love your lawn even more in 2021. 

  1. Properly managed water
    Lawns in Florida need less water during winter than the rest of the year. A general rule of thumb is to give your lawn about an inch of water per week. For most lawns, you'll need to water about once a week during the winter, which is also the limit from the County's water management plan as well. Avoid watering your lawn during any temperatures below 40-degrees, as this water can freeze on the plants creating worse frost damage than a simple frost. Smart controllers are generally set up to not water below freezing automatically, but if you do not have a smart controller it is best to just set your system to run late in the morning after it has warmed up. Watering on the warmer days this season will strengthen the grass, enabling it to fight the damage potentially caused by cold weather and keep deep roots to bounce back quickly in spring. You can find more information about Smart Controllers here.
  2. Potassium application
    Using potassium in the winter months is great for winter root development and prepares your grass for spring recovery. The main goal of winter lawn feedings is not just feeding the turf, it is for feeding the soil microbes so that they can compost. Potassium is not readily available in our sandy soils and needs to be replenished on a regular basis, even in the winter. Potassium ensures that your grass grows strong and is not stunted and retains a lush green and not a yellowed coloration.
  3. Winter Weed Control
    Lawns are dormant at this time of the year, and the lawn grass tends to be brown. Winter weeds, however, are in active growth. They will appear as patches of green on the dormant, brown lawn. Winter is the best time for weed control as they're easier to spot and treat. Focus on the persistent perennial weeds like Dollar Weed, sedges, and Day Flower. There are other annual weeds that pop up - but they will melt away with the rising temperatures - so focus on the perennials. We suggest Manor and Sedgehammer as good herbicides to use on a St. Augustine lawn in the winter months for control of some of those pesky winter lawn weeds.

Most importantly, be patient with your lawn this winter. By following these 3 tips you will have a head start for loving your lawn this upcoming spring. If you need help with your Gainesville lawn this winter, give our team a call or text at (352) 378-5296. We're local and have been serving Gainesville for over 15 years. We look forward to working with you!

If a St.Augustine lawn has developed circular patches of dead, brown areas of turf, then the most likely cause for these brown patches will be a lawn fungus disease called Brown Patch, or Large Patch Fungus.

Brown Patch lawn disease is triggered in a consistent time of year as the weather transitions from Summer to Winter or Winter to Summer (transition seasons of spring and fall).

Brown Patch will be identified by circular browning patches of lawn which will continue to grow in size from the size of a dinner plate up to a few feet in diameter. Multiple circles of Brown Patch are common on St Augustine lawns infected by the disease.

The browning leaf of the Saint Augustine grass will also pull away from the grass stem very easily. On inspection, the lower part of the dead leaf will appear as a rotting dark brown color.

Treating Brown Patch Disease in Saint Augustine Grass
Prevention is the key to stopping all lawn diseases in a Saint Augustine lawn, and many of the same preventative measures which stop Brown Patch from taking hold in a lawn will also be the cure.

Here are the key steps to treating Brown Patch:
- Water only in the morning
- Reduce irrigation as much as possible until the disease is gone
- Stop fertilization until the lawn is recovered
- Apply a lawn fungicide if necessary

Fungicides For Brown Patch
Fungicides are available for Brown Patch lawn disease treatment on St Augustine grass, and should be used if cultural management methods do not control the disease on their own, and as a complementary cure alongside cultural management.

Remember the golden rule of lawn fungicides - they are only ever to be used in conjunction with proper lawn care practices (cultural management practices such as reducing water and fertilization). Otherwise the disease will continue to reoccur under the same conditions or other lawn diseases may take a foothold at a future time.

The lawn must remain strong to help fight and prevent fungal lawn diseases in conjunction with the lawn fungicide. And unless proper lawn care practices are put into place, the Saint Augustine lawn will remain highly susceptible to ongoing infections of Brown Patch and all other lawn diseases.

Prevention of Brown Patch Lawn Disease
Prevention is all about knowing when the disease presents itself most commonly in your lawn, and applying preventative fungicides prior to it showing symptoms. This will greatly reduce or eliminate the brown patch problem in your lawn.

How To Prevent Brown Patch Fungus in St. Augustine Grass

Zoysia lawns in North Florida during winter months can go partially dormant and look tiger striped, snake patterned, or lawn pest damaged. The reality is that it's not a lawn pest or fungus. It is cold dormancy setting in unevenly.

How can you help? The number one thing you need is patience. Patience for a harder frost to send the rest of the lawn into dormancy or patience for it to grow out once it warms up.

Although this cannot be solved with fertilization or Gainesville lawn spraying, we do offer these services to help your lawn get back in shape this spring. Fill out the form above or call us at (352) 378-LAWN today.

Fall Weed Control = Big Opportunity! The best time to get rid of invasive weeds in your lawn (like Doveweed and Basketgrass) is right now!

Identifying Doveweed and Creeping Basketgrass in your lawn early is one of the most important ways to protect your Gainesville Florida lawn in the late summer and early fall season. This video was filmed in early September and is about how to identification some invasive weeds before they take over your lawn. This video is more about identification than how to do lawn weed control because it is so difficult to control these weeds without products specifically formulated for licensed weed control professionals, and also depends upon your type of turf as to which will work.

If these lawn weeds are caught early enough and you prefer to DIY your lawn weed control program, reducing irrigation and hand-pulling is the most effective way to keep these weeds from spreading. However, they do spread rapidly so it will be a good bit of elbow-  to get it under control.

Two of the most invasive Gainesville Lawn Weeds: Doveweed and Basketgrass
By Rusty, Tue, 08/18/2020 - 08:46

The most common mistake made in weed identification for summer and fals weeds is mistaking globe sedge and other nutsedges as sandspurs. If they are green and soft on the stem (as show in the video), it is almost always a sedge such as globe sedge, nutsedge, or kyllinga.

Weed control in Gainesville lawns always starts first with proper identification, because that is how you choose the approach. To control sedge, you reduce irrigation and use a product like sedgehammer. If you have actual sandspurs in your lawn, you would increase watering and use a non-selective herbicide with a strong pre-emergent. 

Sandspurs are typically found in dry arid areas (hence the term sand) such as cow pastures, sides of the roadway, or non-irrigated turf. True sandspurs are brown and are rarely ever soft enough to pinch between your fingers.We will do a later video on controlling actual sandspurs - but controlling sedge is all about proper
