I was just looking at the 10 day forecast and it looks like we are going to see some precipitation this weekend. While that may be an unwelcome sight to some of you, its a sight for sore eyes for me.
Keep in mind that our lake levels in the Metro Atlanta Area are still well below full pool. Any rain that we get will help fill our reservoirs, allowing us to water our lawns and landscapes this summer when rain can be scarce.
The rain also helps keep the water table in the ground favorable levels. The more water that we have in the ground, the less that we have to irrigate. This allows us to conserve our water resources for possible drought in the future.
So make sure to keep all of the benefits of rain in mind even when it comes during the times that we would like to be enjoying the outdoors!

What’s the one word that all who love their lawn hate to hear? Crabgrass!
Crabgrass is the number one pest grass that we in Metro Atlanta see during the summer. Crabgrass germinates from seed every year, making it an annual grass. This is different than a perennial grass which survives from year to year from its root system.
So what’s so special about that little piece of information? Annual grasses are much easier to control with Pre Emergents. With the correct application of Pre Emergent we can control Crabgrass 100%! Meaning you will not see ANY Crabgrass. Applications are set to start in February! Don’t miss out.
In the picture below you can see the difference. The left side of the picture is treated with Pre Emergent, where the right side is not. Notice all of the inconsistencies on the right compared to the left.
Happy New Year!
How funny is it to think that this time last year we were all digging out of a snow storm! Now we are seeing one of the more mild winters in quite some time. I guess the Old Man still has a little time to show his face if he wants to.
