Now is the Time For Warm Season Core Aeration

Core aeration removes a small plug of thatch and soil and should be completed annually on Warm Season Turf (Bermuda, Zoysia and Centipede). This should be completed annually from June to August.

Core Aeration Will:

  • Improve natural soil aeration. Especially beneficial for clay soil.
  • Improve and increase water and nutrient uptake.
  • Improve root and turf health.
  • Improve turf density and help aid turf recovery from disease and winter damage.

Whiteflies

Whiteflies are tiny insects that feed on the phloem sap of ornamental trees and shrubs along with vegetables in the garden. They are most often seen on the underside of the leaf. There are many species of Whiteflies and control can be difficult at times.

Damage is often seen as yellowing leaves, poor or stunted growth and sooty mold on the upper portion of the leaf from the honeydew excretion.

Several ornamental plants have been injured this winter and are struggling to recover. Gardenia is one such plant that will have to be monitored since Whiteflies are typically a problem on this plant.
