In Fort Lauderdale, we are privileged to live in one of the nation’s most beautiful cities on earth. And as such, it’s important to most people in Fort Lauderdale to keep their lawns and gardens looking healthy and fresh.
But between the pressures of work and family, it’s not always easy to keep on top of the lawn maintenance. Unless you have an expert eye, the beginning stages of lawn or turf damage can be really hard to spot. Anteater's Pest Control is one of the top lawn care companies in the state, and we’ve prepared this handy guide to help you spot lawn problems before they spiral out of control. If you see any of these signs, call us quickly!
What we call weeds are just native plants that happen to be very scrappy. But if they take root in your lawn, without proper weed control your garden and backyard could be completely overrun! There’s nothing wrong with a dandelion or two, but if left alone these hardy plants will ruin the pristine look of your home’s exterior.
Other pesky plants to watch out for are clover (small-leaf or regular), chickweed, or buttercups. While they might seem harmless, they’re anything but: weeds will quickly choke the life out of any yard if left alone.
Moss is most often found during the fall and spring months due to extra moisture on the ground. This sign often indicates poor drainage or too much shade. Moss is very hard to eradicate. Have a trained professional apply moss killer and employ proper turf care techniques like spiking to improve your lawn’s health.
When the weather gets rainy, earthworms and other creepy-crawlies come out to play. With enough worms, the dirt is displaced. This isn’t just unsightly; worm casts create perfect conditions for weeds to thrive. When you hire one of Fort Lauderdale’s best lawn care companies for weed control and turf care, this isn’t an issue, no matter how often it rains!
A mysterious brown patch usually can only mean one thing: grubs.
Yuck. The sight of creepy milk-white grubs popping up in your lawn’s soil is enough to make even the bravest of folks shudder. Worse still, grubs munch on the root system that keeps your lawn grass healthy and full of nutrients.
