Below is a list of a few of the most frequently asked questions and my responses to them. A word of warning: this advice may or may not apply to your particular situation and environment. There's a common adage that goes "you get what you pay for!" which could well apply to the advice given here.
I always defer to the professional lawn care providers in your particular geographic area and recommend that you contact them. They are not only familiar with just about every lawn care problem peculiar to your area but have also probably treated it already. Not only are they very knowledgeable, but they're also just great guys. Call one up and see for yourself. Take one out to lunch. Learn to love your lawn care pro and he'll certainly love your lawn. Sorry, I got carried away.
I have a good stand of Tifway 2 Bermuda grass. Now that it is spring (the grass still looks dormant) it is quite long and I want to mow. I doubt we are in for any more hard freezes in the Raleigh NC areas. Do I still have to go by the rule of not cutting more than 1/3 of the height or can I "have at it" and cut the grass down to about 1-1/2 inches without harming the grass?
My lawn is 2-1/2yrs. old. The original owners did nothing to this lawn. There are large clumps of grass included in the turf. Also a couple of dead bare spots. What is a good starting point with my Kentucky lawn?
