Acworth lawn care services
Acworth experiences hot, humid, and muggy summers, whereas winters are moist, cold, and short. It is partly cloudy all year round. The temperature varies from 34 °F to 88 °F, rarely going below 22 °F or above 95 °F. Early May to mid-June is perfect to enjoy the warm weather before it gets unbearably hot in Acworth.
This intense heat is not only stressful for the people but also the plants in the area. With excessive water loss via transpiration, plants become dehydrated, eventually drying and shriveling up. The same happens to your grass if proper care is not provided. Apart from water loss, many other pests and diseases may affect your lawns and will end up damaging them.
Things to look out for on your lawn in Acworth
Pythium blight is a disease whose signs are most visible during the humidity of the hot climate when the turfgrass is left moist for more than 12 hours.Ranging from a dark green to pale purple or purple, soaked in water, leaves that swell to form patches shaped circular or irregular in turfgrass is the initial symptoms that can easily be observed to prevent it from spreading further. It may form by streaking the grass where the disease is spread through running water or the motion of the mower. These patches can have a diameter ranging from 0.4 to 8 inches and have a slimy texture when felt between the fingers. Its spread can entirely ruin your lawn on which you worked so hard on.
Nutsedge categorizes under common weeds affecting lawns but also under aggressive and persistent weeds that are difficult to eliminate. Identification of these weeds can be challenging as they closely resemble normal grass and the process for their control is also a long one. Triangular or V-shaped cross-sections of their stems are one way to distinguish these weeds from the grass. Secondly, nutsedges have thicker leaves compared to other grass. They are an example of perennial weeds that come back after dying, every year. They are difficult to eradicate since they can survive on any kind of soil.
Another perennial weed, spurge is a fast-growing weed that grows low on the ground. It can become a huge problem if it infects your lawn. Therefore, early identification and elimination are a must. It grows in the warmth causing hindrance in the growth of your warm-season grass in hot Acworth. A milky liquid is released from the leaves of this weed when broken, which helps with its identification. Secondly, spurges have a taproot, which is their main, central root from which its stems emerge and, when leaves grow on these stems, they develop their own smaller roots.
Moss is a result of drought, which is likely to occur in the heat of Acworth. Even though it is a temporary problem, preventing it from coming back, again and again, is what you have to work on. It is clumps of yellowish-green or green, loose and coarse between the grass. It gives your lawn a mushy texture when you walk on it and makes the colors uneven. Furthermore, it may grow under trees because of their shade, on compacted soil, acidic soil, or if you mow too low. It can easily be removed just by using your rakes if you have a small lawn but, if your lawn is sizable, you may require mechanical and professional help.
A type of caterpillar, armyworms are grass pests that infect various lawns in Acworth. They may feed on your stems resulting in the grass losing its head and causing brown patches which will adversely affect the visuals of your lawn and make the areas water-repellent. These insects do not have anybody's hair and feel smooth when touched. Another apparent description for their identification is the 3 notable white- or cream-colored stripes running down the sides and back of this insect's body.
