Lawn Care Round Rock, TX Experts on Diagnosing Brown Patch and Treatment

agaveldlawnserviceroundrock

We have noticed Brown Patch in many properties in Round Rock, TX. This Fungus  Disease can affect Zoyzia and Bermuda grass but it is mostly found in St.Augustine grass. The symptoms are pretty clear if you have it because you will start to notice irregular or circular patches of brown and yellowing grass.

Causes of Brown Patch

One of the main reasons for brown patch is over watering lawn. Watering your lawn is very important for the health of your grass but you have to adjust the timing as the seasons change. Also if you water at night it is most likely that you will have brown patch at some point. Watering has to be done in the morning to allow water to dry off and not sit on your lawn for more than 4 hours. 

Weather is also a variable because grass is more susceptible to being infected by brown patch during cool weather. Symptoms might be more noticeable during  the spring, fall, and early winter when temperatures are cool.

TREATMENT

Irrigate only in the morning and adjust watering time depending on season. Mow your lawn low and aerate at least once a year  to allow air to move in to the root zone. Apply a two-step fungicide to treat symptoms. Once you have brown patch you can only control it but if left untreated you will eventually kill large portions of your grass.

Lawn Service Round Rock, TX Summer Season Tips

lawnserviceroundrock

Summer season is here and that means hot temperatures. Most of us are ready for outdoor fun activities such as pool parties, BBQs, or enjoying our favorite ice cream. That being said you can still have a beautiful lush, green, and healthy lawn during the summer heat by following a few tips. Agave LD Lawn Care is here to help you with any questions you might have.

1.Watering

-Always water deeply and infrequently.

-Water 2-3 times per week.

-Start the watering cycle at 4 am -5 am giving the system enough time to go trough all the zones before 10 am which is when the heat start to elevate. 

-Run each zone 5-15 minutes (depends on soil type and size of area being watered).

-Always check your water restrictions of your area before you do any changes to your irrigation schedule.

2.Mowing

-Never cut more than 1/3 of the grass blades on each mowing.

-If you cut too low you can expose the grass root system to the hot sun causing it to look dry and allowing weeds to take over.

-Most lawns here in the area of Round Rock and Austin we cut at a height of 2.5"-3.5". Bermuda grass is cut shorter than St.Augustine grass.

-The only way to maintain a lawn at a proper height is to mow on a weekly basis during the growing season. This allows you to follow the golden rule of only cutting 1/3 off the grass blades per mow.

-Keep blades sharp for every cut.

3.Fertilizing

-Do not over Fertilize.

-Use the correct herbicides to target specific weeds either grassy or broad leaf.

-Use organic Fertilizers as much as possible.

If you follow these three simple tips you can be sure to have a beautiful lawn this summer season. If you have any questions please call Agave LD Lawn Care at 512-981-5152. 

 

Landscaping Austin Texas by Agave LD.

Most recent Landscape install in Austin Texas at Meridian Subdivision.

Agave LD does more than just Lawn Maintenance, Landscape Maintenance, and Lawn Care. We also provide Landscape Design and Installation.  We have worked with many people in Meridian subdivision and in this blog post we will demonstrate our most recent landscape installation in Austin, Texas at Meridian.

Every installation is different and that is why we name each of our landscapes. This landscape installation is called Alophia Residence in Austin (Meridian Subdivision)

Details: Our client had a drainage issue that was causing a real problem in their backyard. There was also a necessary clean-up because not enough sunshine could get through the unnecessary trees (we only kept the Live Oaks). This backyard needed to become more usable and also needed to accommodate the natural flow of water through the terrain. We also had to keep in mind that our client had a pet so we incorporated enough space for it to still be able to have fun.

Agave LD Solution: We placed catch basins in key places throughout the backyard to capture as much water as possible. Then we created a functional dry creek where all the water could flow through. We also re-sodded the right side of the backyard with Zoysia where the pet could still have plenty of space to run around. We also installed a crushed granite gravel path leading to a sitting area where the homeowners could enjoy their beautiful new landscape. Behind the dry creek we planted Texas native plants such as Blue Agaves, Red Yuccas, Mexican Feather Grass, Purple Heart, and Bicolor Iris. The homeowner couldn't be happier with the end result.

Agave LD: Mulching in Austin and Round Rock, Tx.

Agaveld:mulchinginaustinandroundrock,tx.

Why is Agave LD the company you should hire to mulch your flower beds if you live in Austin and Round Rock, Texas? 

Why is mulching important?

How frequently should you mulch your flower beds?

How much mulch is necessary?

This post will address the previous questions.

Agave LD is a full service company which means we perform the following services and much more; Landscape Design/Install, Lawn Maintenance, Landscape Maintenance, Lawn Care (Fertilization/Weed Control). Mulching is another service we offer because you cannot have the most beautiful and healthy flower beds without mulch. The mulch we install only comes from the best vendors here in Austin and Round Rock, Texas. When you hire us to install mulch at your property you can be sure you are only getting the best product there is.

Mulching at least once each year is recommended to insure your plants have proper protection against harsh temperatures. It also helps keep down those annoying weeds that are pain to see in your flower beds. This material also provides excellent ground cover for plants to hold in moisture. My favorite reason and for most homeowners is that mulch really makes your flower beds pop with a beautiful contrast with the rest of your Landscape.

Too much Mulch and you create the perfect environment for fungus and other harmful issues to your plants. Too little Mulch and you defeat the purpose of proper coverage. We always install mulch at a depth of 3" which is the perfect amount.
