If you live in Oklahoma, there is a good chance you have heard about the dreaded Grub Worms. If you have not heard about them, let us fill you in!
EVERYONE has some grubs in your lawn. The problem is when you have too many grubs. Waiting until you start to see Grub damage to treat often means that you are too late. We HIGHLY recommend to all of our customers to have a Grub Preventative Application every year in June/early July. This is the perfect time in their life cycle to hit them and prevent any damage to your lawn.
Grub worms are small white worms (see picture) that live under your grass and eat your lawn’s roots. A bad case of Grub worms can completely destroy the lawn that you have worked so hard on. A lawn with Grub damage will feel soft when walking on it. It will also begin to have some dead spots and if you were to pull on the grass, it would peel away like carpet (see below picture). Due to our mild winters over the past two years, conditions are very favorable for extensive grub activity this summer, which will lead to grub damage in the fall or even early next spring.
If you would like to have this Grub Preventative Application applied on your lawn just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 405/794-5296.

No matter how beautiful a chair, it must have 4 legs. Lawn care is the same.
1. Fertilization and Weed Control
Our base program consists of plant probiotics and organic materials that allows turf to intake the traditional synthetic chemicals, such as pre-emergents and traditional fertilizer, much more efficiently than traditional synthetic chemicals alone. As a result with the probiotic/organic base, we can reduce the amount of synthetic chemicals on your lawn while achieving the same (if not better) weed control and color as in the past. You can feel confident that your lawn is “Safer, Better, Greener” for your children, your pets and our environment.
2. Watering the Lawn
This time of year, we recommend watering the lawn 2 times a week, 20-30 minutes per zone. The goal is 1 inch of water per week. It is much better to water twice a week, rather than for a few minutes every day - think “long drinks of water”. Deep waterings will encourage a deep root system which will allow your lawn to look its best throughout our Oklahoma heat/lawn insects. Additionally, it is best to water in the morning. However, if you must water in the evening, water early enough so the grass has time to dry before dark.
3. Mowing the Lawn
Pick a day and mow the same day every week. The goal is to not cut off more than 1/3 of the blade of grass at any one time. So, for example, if you lawn gets a little long due to rain or vacation, it is better to cut it twice in one week than to cut off more than 1/3 of the blade of grass in a single cutting.
4. Sunlight and Temps 60+ degrees
Bermuda grass, the most popular grass for sunny areas in Oklahoma, is a warm season grass. Bermuda grass does not fully break dormancy until temperatures consistently stay above 60+ at night. So, it is still not at its peak, but it will be there in the next few weeks.
