Your lawn and ground cover should look beautiful

Our lawns are usually the most visible and beautiful part of our landscaping.  So, when lawn problems start, it makes a big impact on the appeal of our property.  There are many causes of problems in our lawn and ground cover.

  • Weeds: There are many weeds that can invade and slowly, but surely, take over your beautiful lawn.  For example, dandelion, white clover, chickweed, or grass like weeds such as crabgrass, foxtails, stinkgrass, among many others.
  • Dead Patches: Dead patches have many origins too, including insects such as the cutworm, bluegrass billbug, chinch bugs, and greenbugs.  Additionally, dead patches in your lawn can be caused by chemical or fertilizer burn, urine damage, and fungi.
  • healthy lawn, landscape, plant disease, insects, pest controlPowder on Grass or Rust: Your lawn loses its beauty when it has a powdery mildew or rust, which is a very common disease among residential lawns.
  • Thin Turf: Thin turf can be caused by many issues, such as: drought, heat and cold, leaf spots, shade, soil problems, thatch, and traffic.
  • Off-colored: When your lawn becomes dark or yellows, it looks unattractive.  The causes of this can come from a fungus, such as fairy rings, a dull lawn mower, inadequate nitrogen in the soil, or an iron deficiency.
  • Holes: Holes in your landscape are usually caused by gophers, voles or moles in Southern California.  The most common of course is the gopher.  Gopher holes can devastate a beautiful landscape and lawn.  Read more about gophers here.
  • Mushrooms: Mushrooms in your lawn are a sign of problems that must be dealt with effectively.  They are also unsightly.
  • Moss and Algae: These conditions are usually caused by poor soil conditions that don’t allow your turf to grow well.

Kastle Kare provides the solutions to your landscape problems.

Gophers & Moles

Gophers and Moles can destroy your landscape

Gophers can destroy your landscape when they are not controlled.  Your lawn can become riddled with very unsightly gopher holes and dirt mounds.  Plants can become smothered by the dirt mounds, thus killing them as well.  More damage can come from the gopher chewing through utility lines and irrigation lines.  Additionally, the soil dug up and brought to the surface of your landscape can cause greater erosion of the soil from rain water and sprinklers, causing a host of related problems.

Because of these problems, gophers must be dealt with effectively to rid your property of their potential damage.  One difficulty in dealing with gophers is they frequently come back and must be dealt with again.  The reason for this is usually when your property has removed the gophers, your neighboring property still has them.  It is just a matter of time before gophers come back again to your property.

Recognizing Gophers

The way to recognize a gopher is to check out the gopher’s hole.  The gopher creates a gopher mound that typically is in a fan shape moving outward from the center of the hole.

Gophers eat plants, lots of them.  They are the usual culprit in your plant damage and disappearing plants.  Gophers can make tunnels up to 200 yards  in a year and move more than 2 tons of soil.
