Local Roots: Colorado Lawns and Gardens Need Local Knowledge to Thrive
If you own a home in Colorado, you know how beautiful our state is and how green your lawn can grow. But Colorado differs in certain ways from other states as far as your lawn’s needs go. Fortunately, FitTurf.com is a locally owned and operated company with local roots and years of experience in our home state. Our trained experts know exactly how to make your Colorado lawn grow and thrive.
Insects, diseases, fertilization and scheduling of care are just some of the aspects of Colorado lawns that require the local know-how of a local company.
Insects can be a big problem for any yard. Unfortunately, the extremely destructive emerald ash borer has headed west and taken up residence here in Colorado. First discovered in Michigan after making its way to the U.S. from its native Asia, this deadly exotic has made it to Colorado and attacked many of its beautiful ash trees. Left unchecked, these ravenous insects will kill your ash trees. You have to take proactive steps to head off these destructive pests, because once they infest a tree, nothing can be done to save its life. That’s why, if you have ash trees on your property, you should immediately contact FitTurf.com, whose expert staff will give you a free consultation and then take preventative steps that amount to a big Keep Out sign for these brazen borers.
Of course, many other insects plague Colorado. Winter mites, for instance, can cause serious damage to your lawn, even while completely unnoticed under a blanket of snow. Most active in winter and spring, these almost invisible little pests can turn large patches of your lawn brown. If you don’t control these mighty mites, you will be in for an unpleasant surprise in the spring once the snow melts and you’re welcome to the season with a brown lawn. Fortunately, FitTurf.com’s qualified staff knows exactly how to dispatch these voracious little insects.
Diseases can also be a problem, even in Colorado’s bracing, healthy climate. One of the best ways to ward off diseases for lawns, as for humans, is to stay healthy in the first place by eating right and getting regular checkups. Think of FitTurf.com as a doctor for your lawn, feeding it the most nutritious food possible and regularly checking up on its specific needs and condition and prescribing just the right amount of TLC to make it thrive.
Colorado’s four seasons require careful attention to applying the right fertilizer and the right amount of water at the right time. So too do the many types of grasses that fare best in the Centennial State. As with humans, you don’t want to overfeed your lawn. Nitrogen, for instance, benefits a lawn, but too much can cause thatch problems. Fertilizer also must be applied at the right times of the year to ensure maximum utility for your lawn’s health. FitTurf.com’s techs offer a free consultation to set you up with a schedule so your lawn will feed well and look its best all year round. Best of all, as a locally owned and operated company, we know exactly how to treat your Colorado lawn and garden.
