Warm Season Lawn Care

Turf Management For Warm Season Grass

Comprehensive Turf Management Program consisting of slow/instant release fertilization, weed control/prevention, micro/macro nutrient, and IPM Applications.

Our Lawn Care Programs are Subscription based programs in terms of billing, this means we spread the annual cost of your Program across 12 equal monthly payments – this way you can budget easier, knowing the same amount will be coming out of your account each month. Since we don’t lock our customers into long-term contracts, if you decide to discontinue service, we’ll balance your account at the time of cancellation based on services rendered.

At the beginning of our Turf Management Program, our first step is always to solve any existing problems, such as an abundance of weeds, disease or insect presence etc. If any of these problems are apparent in your lawn our top priority will be to resolve these problems first. These corrective applications (if needed) will be completed along with your first turf management program application.

Turf Types

Bermuda, centipede, zoysia, and St. Augustine are versatile warm season grasses that tend to grow best in
the coastal regions of North Carolina. Lawn care in the coastal regions can be particularly difficult because
of the sandy soil, common dry spells, and high level of salt in the soil. Grow happens best in the summer
months. When the weather gets colder, these grasses turn brown and stay dormant until the climate warms
up. In the spring, these grasses begin to regain their green color. They are also normally planted as a single
variety, not as a mixture, which is more common in cool season grasses.

Bermuda

Bermuda is an incredibly versatile grass that is grown predominantly in warmer areas. This grass is very tolerant to drought and lack of water, and thrives in a drier, sandier soil, with full sunlight. Bermuda grass also withstands wear and traffic, and can grow back quickly, making it great for populated areas or lawns with dogs and children. Bermuda can be easily seeded and should be maintained regularly in the summer, which is peak season. It is ideal for coastal areas and lawns near the beach.
Bermuda grass is a medium- to fine-textured warm-season turf grass that spreads by rhizomes and stolons. It has excellent heat, drought, and salt tolerance but does not do well in shade. Bermuda grass is the most widely used species on athletic fields and golf course fairways/tee boxes due to its high wear tolerance and rapid recovery. It can also be a very invasive and hard to control weed in some turf settings. There are many different hybrids of Bermuda grass that range from fine to coarse in leaf texture.

Zoysia

Zoysia grass is a warm-season grass that spreads by rhizomes and stolons to produce a very dense,
wear-resistant turf. It is best adapted to the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions of North Carolina, but some of the colder tolerant cultivars can be grown in the western part of the state as well. There are three major species of zoysia grass suitable for turf: Japanese lawn grass (Z. japonica), Mascarene grass (Z. tenuifolia), and manila grass (Z. matrella). Zoysia grass can often be confused with Bermuda grass. However, zoysia grass has hairs standing upright on the leaf blade whereas Bermuda grass does not. Zoysia grass is also stiff to the touch and offers more resistance than Bermuda grass.

Centipede

Centipede grass is also a great option for the coast because it adapts well to salt and sand better than other
grasses, grows well in full sun, and requires very little upkeep which is preferred by many home and business
owners. While this grass takes longer to grow than others, it is worth it because of the limited upkeep and its
apple-green color.
Centipede grass is a slow-growing, coarse-textured, warm-season turf that is adapted for use in low
maintenance situations. It is often referred to as “lazy man’s grass” due to its infrequent mowing and
fertilization requirements. It also has a light-green color and spreads by stolons. It does not tolerate traffic,
compaction, high pH, excessive thatch, drought, or heavy shade.

St. Augustine

St. Augustine grass is a warm-season grass with medium density and medium to dark green color. Of all the
warm season grasses, it is the least cold tolerant and has the coarsest leaf texture. St. Augustine grass grows
best in warm, humid areas that are not exposed to long periods of cold weather. In fact, its lack of cold
tolerance is the major limiting factor in determining its use in North Carolina.
