  • There's plenty to do during the month of June in lawn and garden

    Turfgrass continues to come out of winter dormancy and with the expected high temperatures in the forecast, this means the grasses will really take off. Be sure to sharpen the blades on your mowing equipment. If the blades are too dull, the grass will have a uniform brownish-gray cast to it after mowing. Now is the time to fertilize your centipedegrass.

    Centipede prefers having just one application of fertilizer for the season and June is the best month to fertilize Centipede. One recommendation is to apply 10 pounds of 5-5-15 fertilizer per 1,000 square feet of turf area.
