Springtime is a good time to prepare lawns for a healthy summer as warm-season grasses come out of dormancy and begin to green up.
Dr. Becky Grubbs, turfgrass specialist, College Station, said lawn care is a multifaceted effort homeowners can tackle if they follow AgriLife Extension recommendations and invest the time to create healthy, thriving grasses.
“It’s impossible to make blanket recommendations for homeowners who want their lawn to perform to its potential,” she said. “But AgriLife Extension has an incredible amount of science-based information that can direct homeowners on most lawn care questions and concerns.”
AgriLife Extension has several online resources available to help homeowners establish and maintain turfgrass. Aggie Turf at https://aggieturf.tamu.edu/ has extensive information about caring for species including Bermuda grass, St. Augustine, buffalo grass, seashore paspalum and others.
The site also provides information regarding identification and treatment of common weeds and insect pests and publications that address specific weed, disease and pest issues.
Through the application of science-based knowledge, AgriLife Extension creates high-quality, relevant continuing education that encourages lasting and effective change.
