January 22, 2015

These three blog postings were read by the most people during 2014.  I am also giving you a link to my favorite blog posting of all time:

Number 1:  Kill Weeds without Killing Your Good Grass

“Help! The weeds are winning!” You dig them… they grow back. You treat them… but you killed your good grass too. You put down a crabgrass preventer, but you still got dandelions now. You ask, “So… what’s the secret to killing weeds?  (Click here to read more)

Number 2:  When Do You Put Down GrubEx?

“If you have ever had grub problems in your lawn, it’s for darn sure you don’t want them again.  So this time of year I get the question:  “When is the best time to spread GrubEx on my lawn?”  (Click here to read more)

Number 3:  Feed, Weed or Seed?

“What should I do first:  put down seed or kill my weeds?  This is the question I get more than any other this time of year.  Here is the way I try to layout the options:”  (Click here to read more)

My favorite blog posting of all time:  Lawn Humor

“I am here to dispel the myth that those of us who have built our life’s work around watching grass grow do not have a sense of humor.  We love a good laugh as much as the next person.  In fact, the lawn and garden experts who have staffed our Help Center for more than 50 years have told me numerous stories of callers who made them laugh.  Here are a few that I think will bring a smile to your face:”  (Click here to read more)

Thanks for visiting my blog.  Keep coming back this year for more of my lawn and garden tips.

    Hi Ashton,
    I’m located in Southside Virginia and just recently bought an older home with a very neglected lawn … full of moss with very little grass. Would it help to start immediately applying lime to eliminate the moss and is there anything else you think I should apply? I plan to seed in the Spring with hopes of getting some grass going and then again in the Fall, which is when I expect to get the best results. Thanks!

    • Hi Joyce
      Lime will not get rid of moss, however it can raise the soil pH making the soil less acid. Soils in your area tend to have a low pH. A soil test would confirm the pH. Low fertility, shade, and compacted soil are also contributors to moss. You could put down lime now. The moss will not make it thru the tilling you do prior to seeding. You can kill the moss with Scotts Moss Control Granules. This product does not interfere with seeding.
