You spend precious time and money making your lawn look perfect, but in a matter of days, lawn pests can undo all your hard work. Common lawn pests like chinch bugs and mole crickets can turn your lush green lawn into a disaster with yellow patches and dead grass. However, it doesnâ€™t have to be that way. If you suspect something is eating away at your grass, try a home test to see if one of the many common lawn pests is infiltrating your yard. A bucket of soapy water poured over a patch of your lawn will irritate the skin of bugs and bring them to the surface. Once you determine the cause, try a treatment plan to get rid of the pests. Of course, if you have a bigger problem on your hands call in the professionals..
Remember to take precautions when using at home pesticides and chemicals. They are often not safe for pets and may irritate a childâ€™s skin, and yours, if contact is made. Always use protective clothing when spraying chemicals. Keep pets and humans away from treated areas for at least 24 hours.
These simple tricks can help keep your lawn healthy and free of pests. Have a recurring problem? For a stress free way of eliminating bugs and keeping them away, call Noon Turf Care and have us routinely check and treat for problems.
Today’s Forecast: Snow Mold
Most of us are preparing for the impending possible record breaking snow storm approaching our state of Massachusetts today. Some of us are thinking about lawn care still. Us Noon Turf geeks are always thinking about lawn!
Speaking of snow, a common issue found across lawns in snowy states, is named after it. This lawn disease is called “Snow Mold”, and it looks like this!
The following is a passage from Lawn Care for Dummies by Lance Walheim
What it looks like: Snow molds, shown above, are common to cold-winter climates, especially where the snow cover is long-lasting. You can find two types of snow mold, gray and pink. Gray snow mold shows itself as gray to brown dead spots near the melting snow. You can usually see fuzzy, gray mold near the edges of the dead spots. Pink snow mold also causes dead spots near melting snow, but – you guessed it – it produces a pinkish fuzz near the edges.
When it’s trouble: Occurs as snow melts on cool-season grasses where winters are cold. Gray snow mold likes temperatures a little colder (32 degrees F to 40 degrees F) than pink snow mold (can occur when temperatures are as high as 60 degrees F). Compacted soil, and over fertilization and fall can make problems worse. Both are common in shady areas where the snow is last to melt.
What to do about it:

What lawns do for you
Using grass as a ground cover, or what we call a lawn, dates back centuries. I mean, for Pete’s sake, grass is mentioned in the Bible. It’s said to have been used in Chinese gardens before birth of Christ, and you can even find mention of lawn games in the days of Sir Francis Drake. Lawns wouldn’t have stuck if they weren’t so beautiful and so useful. Think about why lawns are useful:
- Lawns are the ideal ground cover A garden or yard has a floor just like your house does. Instead of using carpet to cover the floor, you use different plants, paving, decks, and mulches to cover the ground. If you don’t think grass lawn is the ideal ground cover, take your shoes off and walk across a planting of junipers or a stone mulch. Try lying down and catching some rays on your cement patio or asphalt driveway. Sure, these other garden floors have their places, but when you need a lawn, there are few suitable substitutes.
- Lawns are the perfect play surface. What do football, baseball, soccer, tennis, and many other outdoor sports have in common? That’s right, they all have a grass playing surface – and for good reason. Grass is the perfect play surface – it’s soft and forgiving, yet tough and durable. Believe us, you’d even be playing basketball on grass if someone could find a way to get a ball to bounce on it.
You don’t even have to have an organized team to make use of grass as a play surface. If you have kids, you need a lawn. Even if it’s only a small lawn, you need one. Otherwise, kids are going to be in the street, in the dirt, or – worse yet! – inside with you.
- Lawns soothe harsh environments. Like all plants, grass improves the environment you live in. A grass lawn absorbs carbon dioxide from the air and gives back fresh oxygen. A lawn traps dust, dirt, and pollution and prevents erosion. A well-maintained lawn also cools the air around homes and gardens, reducing the need for air conditioners.
- Lawns are just plain beautiful. One saying has stuck with us for years: “Everything looks better with a well-kept lawn.” The phrase is memorable because its so true. A lawn ties your house and landscape together and makes all the other plants look better. A beautiful lawn makes the house look better. Lawns provide order, texture, color, and character to a yard – and everything around them looks better, even you.
