What can I do about moles?

Guaranteed Turf Care offers a 100% natural product that will repel moles from your lawn. It is completely safe around children or pets. Our standard program consists of four treatments. For lawns with persistent problems we recommend our treatments which utilize baits.

What can I do about mushrooms?

Mushrooms are the fruiting bodies of a fungus feeding on decaying wood in the soil. The fungus becomes active whenever the environment is cool and moist. The fungus will remain active until the the decaying wood is removed from the soil.

What can I do about moss growing in the grass?

Moss grows in shaded areas that lack sufficient sunlight to grow grass. The choice is to either trim the shade trees to increase the amount of sunlight, or plant shade tolerant plantings.

What is the best time to seed?

Seeding between August 15 and mid September offers ideal conditions. Weed competition is lower, the temperatures are continually getting cooler and there is not any conflict with pre-emergent herbicides.

What is the best way to seed?

In order to achieve a high germination rate you must have seed soil contact (working the seed into the top 1/8-1/4 inch of soil) and you must keep the soil continually moist for 2 weeks. Seeding after a core aeration is ideal.

How can I improve the density of my grass in shaded areas?

The best solution is to get more sunlight to the grass plant by pruning shade trees. If there is adequate sunlight, another alternative is to plant shade tolerant grass seed. In many situations shade tolerant plants or ground covers are a better option than grass.

What can I do about ant hills?

Applying a granular insecticide to the lawn will give temporary control. This product helps control mosquitoes simultaneously.

What is thatch?

Thatch is make up of dying grass parts that have not decomposed. They accumulate on top of the soil and pose a health hazard to the lawn when the thatch becomes 1/2 inch or more thick.

How do I control or remove thatch from my lawn?

You can keep thatch from accumulating by increasing the decomposition rate. This is done by increasing the amount of oxygen in the soil with a core aeration. Removing a thatch layer that is 1/2 inch or more thick can be accomplished with several aerations.

Is the Ph of the soil important?

Kentucky bluegrass will not utilize the nutrients in the soil properly if the Ph is not balanced around 7.0. A low Ph reading means the soil is acidic and will need lime applications. A high Ph reading means the soil is alkaline. Most soils in the twin cities improve with either Lime or Gypsum treatments. Guaranteed Turf Care provides these applications.

What are the dead circles in my lawn?

Dead patches of grass can be symptoms from a variety of problems. Insect infestation and fungal diseases may be possible causes. Contact a lawn care specialist to inspect and diagnose the problem. Guaranteed Turf Care provides this service at no charge.

What is the white powder on my grass blades?

It is probably a disease called "Powdery Mildew." Powdery Mildew is common in shaded areas. The disease is cosmetic and will not kill the roots. Increasing the amount of sunlight by pruning shade trees will alleviate the problem.

Why do I have orange tinted, dying grass around the edge of my trees?

This is a symptom of an insect called Greenbug. Greenbugs are minute aphids that suck the juices out of the grass blade and inject a toxic saliva. Guaranteed Turf Care can apply insecticides to alleviate the problem.

Why do I have trouble growing grass on a hill?

All hills are difficult because the runoff of water does not allow for adequate water retention to develop a healthy root system. South and west facing hills absorb additional heat which compounds the heat/water stress to the grass plant. Hills need to be watered for shorter durations but more often to help alleviate the stress.
