Most Common Grass Types: The most common grass types are bermudagrass, buffalograss, Kentucky bluegrass, tall fescue, and centipedegrass.
Spring Lawn Care Tips: Rake any snow into uniform, evenly distributed piles to help it melt quicker and prevent bald spots from appearing on your lawn. Also, rake any leaves or branches from your lawn. Mow your lawn as soon as possible, but don’t cut it too much, or it will turn the lawn yellow and hinder growth. Wait until late spring to overseed, as by then, the ground will be warm enough to support the germination process. Use an herbicide to deal with weeds before they emerge. Give your lawn an inch of water a week. Dethatch and aerate your lawn.
Native Plants: Columbine, butterfly weed, blue wild indigo, wild ginger, wild bleeding heart, and dwarf crested iris.
Common Lawn Diseases: The most common lawn diseases are brown patch, red thatch, rust disease, summer patch, fairy ring, necrotic ring spot, and snow mold.
