Bermuda and Zoysia are both referred to as Warm Season Turfgrass. That is they are actively growing during the warm months of the year. They also both go into dormancy during the Winter months. There are several different types of Bermuda and Zoysia, but they all behave the same way. In the Atlanta area these two grasses are an excellent choice for your lawn. They both enjoy the hot weather and are very tolerant of drought. Although these are two excellent species of turf grass, they require regular pest control and fertilizer applications. The calendar below outlines how Advanced Turf Care’s program is designed to do those very things.
- Pre-emergent and weed control application made in late February/early March.
- Pre-emergent will control summer weeds and crabgrass; weed control will eliminate any weeds that are present.
- Application made in late April/early May consists of fertilizer and weed control.
- Fertilizer will help lawn reach full color; weed control will eliminate weeds that may be present.
- June application consisting of fertilizer and weed control as needed.
- Mid August application consisting of fertilizer and weed control as needed.
- Final fertilization of the year, also looking out for late summer weed activity.
- Pre-emergent application in September to control winter annual grasses and winter weeds.
- Secondary pre-emergent application made in late October/early November for added control over winter annual grasses and winter weeds.
