Lawns in Florida are under constant stress due to the environment and surroundings, including heat, humidity, lack of water, reduced water retention, weeds, and fungus, among other things. Florida’s climate of warm weather and plenty of sunshine makes caring for your lawn a year-round task. Consistent maintenance is needed to ensure proper nutrition, weed control, and insect prevention, especially from lawn grubs.
The first step to a healthy lawn involves proper mowing, trimming, and watering.
The sand in Florida’s soil prevents it from retaining or storing nutrients. As a result, nutrients must be provided regularly to ensure good health of your grass.
Florida’s climate causes bug season to persist for much of the year. Pest invaders attack stems and roots, causing damage to the overall health of your lawn and plants. Quick identification and treatment is the only way to prevent diseases from spreading. However, it’s important to only apply pesticides when insects are present in high numbers and to reduce use when they are not. Florida soils have unique nutritional requirements, so it’s best to consult with Fort Myers pest control experts to ensure your lawn is properly maintained to allow for a healthy, pest-free fall.
