Get Help for Common Lawn Diseases


Do you wish your lawn was as green and lush as a golf course?

Have you tried everything to get rid of unsightly brown patches, or spots that don’t look right?

There are so many lawn issues that may appear from time to time in your yard. If you’re tired of playing the guessing game with identifying your turf issue and choosing the right treatment plan, we can help.

Here are some of the major issues that affect lawns in Michigan:

  1. Grubs: Signs you may have grubs include a spongy lawn (if grubs have been feeding on your grass, it may feel spongy underfoot, like walking on freshly laid sod); dying grass (grubs eat the roots of your lawn, resulting in grass that thins, turns yellow, and eventually dies); and finally, patchy lawn (random patches of dead, brown grass will appear in your yard where grubs have been feeding).
  2. Sod web worms: The caterpillar stage of lawn moths, are a pest of bluegrass lawns in Michigan. Damage by these worms usually first appears as small, brown patches of closely clipped grass. An insecticide may be used to manage damage from these pests.
  3. Brown patches: Brown patches could indicate a variety of issues such as a fungal disease, bugs and grubs, improper mowing, spots from pets, or over-salting in the winter.

Overwatering vs. Underwatering Your Lawn


Not sure if your lawn is getting enough water? After your lawn is watered, take a long-blade screwdriver and stick it straight into the soil. If your lawn is properly watered, the blade should puncture about 3 inches (in clay soil) into the soil. If the screwdriver has trouble going on, and the soil is hard and dry, your lawn is likely dehydrated.

Remember, overwatering can cause more damage to your lawn than underwatering. You don’t want to drown your grass! Watering your lawn every day can ruin your turf. 

Some signs that you’re overwatering include development of thatch, fungus, weeds like nutsedge and crabgrass, and damage from insects.

On the other hand, signs of a drought include dry patches, visible footprints on grass, and slowed growth. If you notice your lawn has patches of straw-colored grass, it doesn’t spring back up as nicely, or you have to mow less, these are all good signs that your lawn isn’t getting enough water.

Finally, pair your watering schedule with a proper fertilization plan! Over time, lawns tend to leech nutrients, leaving them deficient. For thicker, greener grass, your lawn needs the right nutrition, and that can be hard to manage on your own. Hiring lawn care companies in Livingston County to fertilize is the best option because not only do they know the right type of fertilizer to best feed your lawn, but they’ll manage the proper timing and application that can be hard for the average homeowner to achieve.

Are You Giving Your Lawn Enough Water?


We’ve had a hot start to summer in Michigan, with temps reaching near 90 degrees as early as mid-May! When the dog days of summer arrive, it’s important to recognize the signs of heat stress on your lawn.

Proper watering is critical to maintaining the health of your lawn throughout the summer!

  • When to water: For most of the year, your lawn gets enough water from rain. But during unusually dry periods, your turn needs help quenching its thirst. Watering early in the morning is important to keep your grass hydrated. The best time to set up your sprinkler is between 5 and 9am, which allows the grass and soil to properly soak in the water. On the hottest days of summer, try to mow even earlier, before the dew dries. If you can’t water in the early morning, early evening or overnight is the next best time.
  • How much to water: In general, your lawn should receive about one inch of water per week to allow for the best hydration. In the absence of a helpful rain, you need to water your lawn by hand or with a sprinkler system. On the hottest days of summer, as much as two inches of water per week may be necessary. 

Remember, overwatering can cause more damage to your lawn than underwatering. You don’t want to drown your grass! Watering your lawn every day can ruin your turf.

Top Weed Control Tips


The first thing that needs to be done to take care of the most common weeds in your yard is to make sure you can identify them properly.

Broadleaf weed control programs can be used with:

  • Clover: Clover is easily spotted by tiny white flowers all over your yard. This is by far the most common weed in all parts of the country.
  • Crabgrass: This type of grass is fast-moving and able to take over your entire yard in the blink of an eye. Deep, less-frequent watering can help slow its growth.
  • Creeping Charlies: Weeds can be deceptive, and this one definitely is. Creeping Charlies can be pretty, but they can take over your lawn and deprive it of nutrients.
  • Dandelion: Dandelions are one of the most persistent weeds. They also steal vital nutrients and space from your lawn and can be difficult to control because of their floating seeds. They also have long roots that are difficult to pull.


Our biggest tip is simple…

Hire the professionals! When the weeds get out of control or you have a large yard you need to keep weed-free, it’s time to hire the pros! Crabgrass control and broadleaf weed control can be done once or twice per year to keep stubborn weeds at bay. The best way to keep your yard looking its best is to trust the professionals to help.

Tired of Searching for the Perfect Lawn Fertilization Program?


How often should you fertilize? When?

What type of fertilizer do you need?

Every spring, home and garden stores are full of folks trying to answer these same questions. 

Unfortunately, fertilizing your own lawn requires specialized equipment as well as specific knowledge of your lawn’s pH level and grass type (or types.) If you don’t have a specialized spreader or pH kit handy, you might want to join the thousands of Michiganders who use professional lawn care every year. 

Your search ends here! We have a lawn fertilization program that will fit your needs. Try an early fertilization, crabgrass treatment, and aeration in March or April, and mid-summer fertilizer in July or August.

Whatever you need to keep your lawn healthy and fertilized, Ever So Green can provide it. Our team has been serving the Livingston County area for over twenty years. We are licensed and insured with certified and licensed technicians.

Spend More Time Enjoying Your Lawn This Summer


Does your lawn have crabgrass?

Crabgrass creeps across your lawn in wide-leafed clumps that grow parallel to the ground. It is a pest to an otherwise nice lawn. Crabgrass appears in the lawn from last year’s crabgrass seeds. The best bet to preventing crabgrass is to treat the seedlings before they appear.

Are you dealing with broadleaf weeds?

Typical broadleaf weeds are dandelion, thistle and plantain. These weeds can easily overrun an otherwise lush lawn. Twice yearly treatments can keep broadleaf weeds at bay.

Does your lawn get a lot of use?

If your lawn gets a lot of use (kids and pets, etc.) your lawn is likely very compacted and in need of aeration. Compacted soil restricts the flow of air, nutrients, and water to your grass. Aeration loosens the compacted soil, allowing for maximum growth and creating a healthier lawn.
