St. Augustine is a very common grass for Florida landscapes, but it does have its drawbacks. It is prone to insect and disease problems and it is not particularly drought tolerant. To keep St. Augustine grass healthy requires 4 to 6 pounds of nitrogen fertilizer per 1,000 square feet per year. A mowing height of 4 to 5 inches aids in keeping the root system from drying out too quickly in times of low rainfall or lack of irrigation.
Insect control is essential in Florida horticulture, and CARR Pest Management gets rid of predatory insects that can damage plants, trees and grasses. Most important of all, we leave behind the beneficial insects that contribute to a healthy landscape. This step is critical, not only for the landscape itself, but for the environment in general.
A sound fertilization program gives your lawn, trees and shrubs a beautiful and lush look. Frequent fertilization at lower application rates is key to achieving success with landscape plants. Too much fertilizer is not only wasteful but could actually lead to harmful diseases and insect problems.
We are experts at diagnosing unhealthy lawns, trees and ornamentals. We know how to identify and treat many types of outdoor insect and plant diseases to keep landscapes healthy and green.
