The damage that results, and the efforts made to rectify the problem, are enough to make you wish that you could just fill in the yard with sand and claim it as Southwest Florida beachfront property. Did you know the leading cause of critter invasion and destruction is not being able to identify that you even have pests in the first place?

Unfortunately, by the time you see signs of destruction that is easily identifiable with an untrained eye, it is too late to quickly and easily fix the problem. Having ongoing professional care and maintenance is a great way to avoid major issues and destruction. At least knowing a little bit about some common pests you may find in the lower part of the Sunshine State is a great place to start.

What You Need to Know About Lawn Pests

More than likely, some of these you have already seen and maybe even dealt with.

You cannot reside in the state of Florida without being familiar with fire ants. In fact, most of us, at some point or another, have gotten a little too familiar and ended up being bitten by these harmful pests. What you usually spot is the colony’s home, a mound of various sizes, of dug up soil. The worst part is that fire ants are active, all year long, but they swarm between spring and fall. They are one of the few pests that are harmful to both lawns and people.

Grubs are C-shaped insects that are typically a milky white. Although their larvae hatch in May and June, like fire ants, these critters are also active all year long. They feed off the root system of turf grasses, and lead to extensive damage. You may spot brown patches or feel soft and spongy areas, these are an indication the grass is already dead. While not harmful to humans, grubs can destroy your entire lawn, if left untreated.

During spring and fall, a pest you may encounter is the sodweb worm. Their color may vary, but they have fine hairs covering their body. Evidence of the presence of this type of worm is brown spots or gnawed grass blades that display a ragged edge appearance. With a large enough infestation, an entire lawn can be ravished in just a number of days, and they are common on golf courses, too.

The top threat to St. Augustine grass is the chinch bug. Although it can infest other types of grass, it is known as the number one pest of St. Augustine grass. In our part of the state, these bugs are also active all year long. They pierce the grass and then suck it dry, while also injecting a toxin back into the blade that kills it. They also can rather easily eradicate an entire lawn, and in a relatively brief time period.

Put an End to Pests

Protect your lawn from total annihilation and call on Rick Roberts Lawn Service Inc. for help with your grass and pests. We even have full-service lawn applications programs that include fertilization, as well as disease, weed and pest control. Keep in mind, the healthier the grass, the less

What You Need to Know About Seasonal Landscaping Maintenance http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/landscaping/seasonal-landscaping-maintenance/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/landscaping/seasonal-landscaping-maintenance/#respond Fri, 08 Sep 2017 17:19:19 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=187 Southwest Florida Landscaping MaintenanceHaving great long term success with your landscaping is about how you take care of it. Or, more specifically, how your professional landscaper takes care of it. That includes making it a point to schedule the work that goes into preparing your yard for year round seasonal changes.

Of course, living in Southwest Florida, people tend to think we only have one real season. While it is true that our seasonal shifts are less dramatic than other parts of the country, they do still exist. Especially, when it comes to plant life and how it goes through seasonal changes.

Smart homeowners make it a point to take care of the necessary steps required to keep your yard in optimal health. The perfect lawn and landscaping is an ongoing project, and diligent homeowners will benefit from treating this as such. Let’s look at some ways your yard should get attention, before cooler weather starts.

Make the Most of Your Yard

So before the temperatures start to dip even a little, here are some things that you should discuss with your landscaper, in order to make sure they happen!

The height of the mower should be adjusted accordingly. The reason for this is that you do not want to trim warm season grasses too short, once the temperatures drop a little. This reduces the risk of damaging the grass and helps provide a better chance for surviving until spring.

Weeds are something that should be dealt with as fall arrives, and especially before winter months. Weeds pose a threat to the overall health of your lawn. So, when cooler weather can also weaken an otherwise healthy vegetation, the last thing that you need is to also have the threat of weeds around. If ignored, these intrusive plants can starve out your healthy grass or plants and lead to serious problems.

This is also an ideal time to fertilize. If cool weather poses a threat to your grass and plant life, the best thing that you can do is offer it plenty of nutrition. This helps boost it back up and gives it a better chance to fight cooler temps, weeds and other potential threats. The best way for long term success for flora and fauna is a healthy and well-nourished root system.

Those bare spots of your lawn that you ignored during summer should definitely be addressed now. They can easily develop into much larger patches, and quickly, once the air is cooler. This is the ideal time of year for seeding, so make it a point to get on top of that. You will still need to work on establishing this new grass like any other lawn, with plenty of water and nutrients.

Now is also a good time of year to make adjustments to your irrigation system, as well. Especially here in Florida, your lawn requires plenty of water during brutal summer months. Yet, once the temperatures drop, the frequency and amount of water required changes. In fact, fail to make this type of adjustment and you could easily end up drowning out your otherwise healthy lawn.

Benefits of Fertilization – How Your Lawn Can Benefit http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/fertilizing/benefits-fertilization-lawn-benefit/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/fertilizing/benefits-fertilization-lawn-benefit/#respond Wed, 07 Jun 2017 23:47:29 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=180 Lawn Fertilization Southwest FLHaving a home in Southwest Florida means being able to partake in summer activities, all year long. This means more beach time, pool time and time spent outside in the yard. As a result, it also means needing to take care of your lawn, all throughout the year.

One of the key factors that will help keep your lawn in tiptop shape is fertilization. Unfortunately, this is something a few too many homeowners skip. Don’t forget, the work is not just about establishing the perfect lawn, it is about being able to keep it that way.

Advantages of Fertilization for You Grass

Sure, fertilizing your yard is supposed to keep it healthy. However, there is more to it than that.

Fertilization in Southwest Florida improves the root system which does make your grass healthier. However, this is also what makes it thicker and more vibrant in color.

When grass is healthier and stronger, this makes it easier to ward off potential threats, such as disease and pests. Your lawn is susceptible to a number of types of diseases and pests, even weeds, and if it is healthier and stronger, it has an enhanced ability to fight this off.

Thicker grass is more comfortable for running around in bare feet. Not to mention, this enables the grass to better tolerate foot traffic, in the first place.

Healthy roots can take in more water, in order to stay hydrated. This means you are less likely to be stuck with a middy swamp of a yard.

Plus, you have peace of mind. You can think and worry less about the condition of your yard, by getting proactive about fertilization.

Rely on the Experts

The easiest way to get better insight and take better care of your yard, is by counting on the landscaping pros here at Rick Roberts Lawn Service. We take great pride in this line of work and that shows in the customer satisfaction rating we have earned.

The Basics of Lawn Nutrition http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/basics-lawn-nutrition/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/basics-lawn-nutrition/#respond Tue, 18 Oct 2016 14:37:38 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=171 Lehigh Valley Lawn MaintenanceAs a homeowner, it’s important to you that your lawn always looks its best, and that means that you need to keep your lawn as healthy as possible at all times. At Rick Roberts Lawn Service, Inc., our Lee County landscaping contractors understand the importance of making sure that your lawn receives essential nutrients so that it can always be healthy and vibrant.

Healthier lawns have a number of advantages, some of which include:

  • Better color, density, growth, and tolerance of stress factors.
  • Resist damage from drought, insects, and disease.
  • Have fewer weeds and insects.
  • Reduce run-off and erosion.
  • Require fewer control applications over time.

Our landscapers can assess your lawn and determine the right fertilizers and nutrients to help you maintain the health of your lawn. Some factors include seasonal growth patterns of the grass on your lawn, local weather and climate, and the nutrients that your grass demands. Only a trained lawn care specialist will be able to accurately determine which lawn nutrients are necessary for your lawn, as well as what levels of nutrition will help provide the healthiest grass.

Hiring a Professional for Lawn Nutrition Services

Many homeowners do consider fertilizing their lawns on their own, but before you attempt to take care of that job, you seriously consider its difficulty. It may take three to five repeat applications of fertilizer throughout the year in order for the fertilizer to be effective to your Lee County home’s lawn. While you might end up paying more money for a professional landscaper to do the job, we’ll be able to guarantee that the right fertilizers are applied at the right times in order to keep your lawn as healthy as possible throughout the year.

Benefits of Lawn Fertilization

The health and appearance of your lawn are entirely dependent on the nutrition that it receives. Making sure that your Lee Count home’s lawn receives excellent nutrition will give you these and more benefits:

  • Making sure that your lawn is properly fertilized will give it the nutrients that it needs to thrive, like nitrogen, which gives grass a rich green color.
  • Regular lawn fertilization services promote growth and allow your grass to more quickly recuperate from disease and infestation.
  • Our balanced fertilization services will promote growth prevent overgrowth caused by over-fertilization. Plus, they’ll help your lawn fight against weeds.

Our landscapers will work with you to keep your lawn as healthy and attractive as possible at all times.

How Your Landscape Design Can Help You Conserve Water http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/landscaping/landscape-design-conserve-water/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/landscaping/landscape-design-conserve-water/#respond Mon, 16 May 2016 20:54:10 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=157

landscape-design-lehigh-acresMore and more homeowners across the country are growing increasingly concerned with making their homes more environmentally friendly. An environmentally friendly home isn’t only good for the Earth, but it can also directly benefit you as a homeowners. Environmentally friendly practices aren’t just a fad—because they’re based on being more efficient with your resources, they can help you save time, money, and effort as well.

There are plenty of resources for finding ways to be more environmentally friendly inside your home, but it can be more difficult to find resources for improving conservation outdoors. Thankfully, going green doesn’t much more than conserving water and energy, and the professional Lehigh Acres landscaping contractors at Rick Roberts Lawn Service, Inc. have put together a few of the best ways to conserve water with your landscape design:

Use Water-Wise Plants

Water-wise plants are named for their ability to thrive in even desert conditions, so planting them in your yard is a great way to decrease the amount of water you need to use to maintain your landscape. These plants don’t require nearly as much water as others, but they’re very attractive and often more distinctive than other plants.

Using too much water in your landscape is very easy to do, and while there’s no way to get around using water for your Lehigh Acres landscape, water-wise plants can ensure that you need to use much less. Some great water-wise plants include:

  • Yucca
  • Sunflowers
  • Purple Coneflower
  • Sage

Use Mulch in Your Garden

Mulch is another great to limit the amount of water that your Lehigh Acres landscape requires. Mulch helps to keep weeds out of gardens, and weeds will often use much of the water that you’re attempting to provide to your plants. Mulch can also retain water for your plants so that you can water them less frequently.

Organic and low-cost mulches can come from almost anywhere. Compost, chopped leaves, or even shredded newspaper can all be use as alternatives to chemical-rich store-bought mulch.

Use a Mediterranean Landscape Style

Mediterranean landscapes often feature large, open courtyards that are easy to maintain and don’t require very much water. Concrete walls and gravel beds are also prevalent. They are frequently decorated with topiary trees, vines, and other water conserving plants.

Install a Rain Gardens

Rain gardens are simply small holes or depressions in the ground that take rainwater from roofs, sidewalks, driveways, and other urban features and bring it back into the ground.

Instead of returning to storm drains, the rain will can return to the ground on your Lehigh Acres property. This will improve the quality of nearby bodies of water and decrease the costs of local water cleaning.

Southwest Florida Lawn Maintenance Tips http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/lehigh-acres-lawn-maintenance-tips/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/lehigh-acres-lawn-maintenance-tips/#respond Fri, 21 Sep 2012 19:31:41 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=97 Southwest Florida Lawn MaintenanceWhen it comes to Southwest Florida lawn maintenance, a reoccurring issue is weed control. Weeds can germinate and grow in any season, unlike the plants we sow annually. You can pull up weeds only to have new ones sprout within a few days. These weeds take food, water and space from your flowers and grass, so its important to keep up with weed control. Using the following tips and hints, you can keep your Wall lawn green and weed free.
Combination weed and feed products can be helpful. The products combine compounds to discourage weed growth and germination, along with fertilizer to feed grass. The downside is that products like this must be used on a regular basis or will become ineffective after some time.
For a Southwest Florida homeowner to really get weeds under control, a plan is needed. The first application of a feed and seed should be done in the early spring. Although weeds can sprout at anytime, spring is a good time to prevent the germination of many kinds of weeds to prevent them from spreading seeds throughout the year.
These products usually last about two months before time and rains require a reapplication. When applying this product, it is also very important to get the dosage right, too. Too much can kill your grass, which defeats the purpose of using such a product.
Different products require different lawn maintenance tools. For medium to large lawns, some type of spreader is needed. Spreaders help maintain an even application of fertilizers, weed-prevention chemicals and new grass seed. This will help ensure that you use the right dosage when applying chemicals to your lawn.
A good rule of thumb to go by is to use your spreader to apply feed and seed every two months as mentioned before. However, in areas where there is a shorter dormant season, more applications may be necessary.
Some Southwest Florida homeowners do their own lawn maintenance because they have a natural green thumb or enjoy the physical activity. Other homeowners hire a Southwest Florida lawn company to take advantage of their know-how and equipment. Whatever you choose to do, remember that proper planning will aide one in not only weed control but in overall yard lawn care and maintenance.

Loving your Lawn – Basics of Southwest Florida Lawncare http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/loving-lawn-basics-lehigh-acres-lawncare/ http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/lawn-maintenance/loving-lawn-basics-lehigh-acres-lawncare/#respond Wed, 30 May 2012 20:11:50 +0000 http://www.rrcld.com/Southwest-Florida-Landscaping/?p=89 You may have a sprawling, green lawn that you like to tend spring flowers on or plant edible herbs for your kitchen; or you can have a small, quaint backyard space that is just enough for your dog to run around in or for your kids to play in with their classmates or friends. Regardless of what size of lawn you may have, Southwest Florida lawncare is sure to be a regular concern of yours. The good news is there are very basic things you can do to make sure your patch of green grass stays healthy, green and beautiful.

As you may expect, watering is the most basic form of lawncare and also one of the easiest things to do. The key thing in watering is in the application of water. You must use enough water to moisten as much of the roots as possible. You may consider using a soil probe or a soil shovel to check the average root depth of your lawn, before you start your watering process. This is so you know how deep to apply water to maximize the health and beauty of your greenery.

If you are using clay in your lawn, use one to one and a half inches of water to moisten the root area to a 6-inch depth. Sandy soil, on the other hand, can be moistened to 6 inches using just 0.5 inch of water. It is critical that you are aware of how deep your roots grow, since this directly influences how much watering you must do. Water too deeply or not deeply enough can spell bad news for your lawn.

Also, pay attention to the weather. If there is an extended dry period in your area, you may need to water every four to six weeks; therefore, make sure you are prepared for this level of frequency. You may also want to enlist freelance help to assist you in the watering frequency if this kind of Southwest Florida lawncare is not something your schedule can permit.

You may also want to perform your watering duties during late evening or early morning, as these times usually present a situation where there is less evaporation and hence, more water is absorbed by the soil, as compared to hotter periods of the day such as noontime.

Fertilizing is another simple lawncare activity. Check first and get your soil tested to make sure what nutrient it is deficient in, although commonly, people use nitrogen as the key nutrient in promoting good color and growth of grass. However, keep a close eye on how much nitrogen you use in your fertilizer, especially during warmer seasons like spring and summer.  Over-fertilization can lead to thatch buildup and require you to mow more often, which, we all have to agree, is not a good thing even for lawn-owners. On the flip side, under-fertilization is also not good, as lawns can become unhealthy if proper and adequate fertilization is not done.

With these simple steps, you can perform basic lawncare and make sure your patch of grass stays as pretty as the first day you had it.
