TURF CARE

Here at Southern Roots Turf    

we offer a seven visit program to eradicate weeds and to ensure your lawn is lush and green. We start by making sure your lawn gets the proper blend of nutrients to begin correcting any problems or deficiencies.
We use custom blend of nitrogen, phosphorous potassium and other nutrients to match your lawns needs and  to make sure your lawn continues to grow strong roots and rich healthy blades.
Our granular application is used to deliver high concentrations nutrients to your lawn’s root system to promote a thick, beautiful, green growth while helping to control weeds and insect pests.
Our liquid application is used primarily in the hot summer months to keep your lawn dark green without causing the grass to grow out of control. This system and method of application also allows us to use liquid insecticides, which is the most effective form of insect control on the market today.
 

INSECT AND DISEASE CONTROL

Our experience gives us the ability to identify a problem at its earliest stages. Whether your turf is feeling the effects of an insect attack or fighting a fungus our team can create a program that fits the needs of your specific needs.

Identifying and treating these problems in the beginning stages is vital for the health and appearance of your lawn.

Turf disease management is a specialized field. Turf diseases are difficult to diagnose and difficult to control. Even if homeowners were able to diagnose a lawn fungus correctly, there are many variables affecting treatment protocols. Not all lawns contract diseases and the good thing is they can be prevented through proper maintenance practices. 

  • Accurate watering schedules 
  • A customized fertilizer program
  • Sharp mower blades 
  • Correct mowing heights
  • Aeration  

IF YOU THINK YOUR LAWN  HAS A DISEASE PLEASE CONTACT US BELOW

TREE AND SHRUB CARE

Our customized tree and shrub care program includes fertilization with insect and disease control. Plus an anti-desiccant that will protect your plants through the winter. 

Trees and shrubs are able to resist insects and disease better when they are healthy. A key component to our tree and shrub care program is deep root fertilization. Deep root fertilization will ensure that your landscape is vibrant and full.

 There are many causes of diseases that can attack your trees and shrubs. If left untreated these diseases can take over, ruining the appearance of your landscape.

 We proactively treat shrubs and plant beds to prevent and rid them of insects and diseases that are causing damage.


FIRE ANT CONTROL

Fire Ants are more than just ordinary ants. These pests pack a powerful punch and can be very harmful to Georgia homeowners. Unlike most ants, Fire ants sting, and are very aggressive. Bigger colonies can reach up to 250,000  ants. These ants are known to take down small mammals and injure children and those with weaker defenses. 

Our team has years of experience protecting lawns against fire ants here in Georgia. Our goal is to always ensure that you are satisfied our service that is why we take care of the problem at the source. Many lawn companies will only spray down your yard taking care of the ants that are on the surface. By researching the feeding habits of ants, we have found that bait is the best method for eliminating them for good. The bait works even when you can't find the nest and unlike contact pesticides bait can wipe out the entire colony by destroying the queen. Worker ants find the bait, bring it back to the larvae for conversion into edible liquid food and then pass the pesticide on to the queen and the rest of the colony.

CORE AERATION

Core Aeration is the process of mechanically removing small plugs of thatch and soil from the lawn to improve natural soil aeration. Most lawns benefit from annual aeration. Heavily used lawns, or those growing on heavy clay or subsoils may need more than one aeration each year. Core aeration can help make your lawn healthier and reduce its maintenance requirements through these means:

  • Improved air exchange between the soil and atmosphere.
  • Enhanced soil water uptake.
  • Improved fertilizer uptake and use.
  • Reduced water runoff and puddling.
  • Stronger turf roots.
  • Reduced soil compaction.
  • Enhanced heat and drought stress tolerance.
  • Improved resiliency and cushioning.
  • Enhanced thatch breakdown.

MOSQUITO CONTROL
