lawnfallWith Labor Day behind us, now is the time to start preparing your lawn for cooler weather.

In Northwest Florida, temperatures can remain warm through September and October, but when they drop, it’s important to make sure your lawn is prepared.

Studies indicate that fire ants infest more than 325 million acres across the southern United States and sting more than 20 million adults and children per year. And as we approach summer, they are just getting started. Fire ants begin emerging when temperatures hit between 70 and 95 degrees, and primarily come out at night.

How can I spot one? A fire ant has a dark, reddish-brown color on most of its body and head, but the abdomen appears darker in color. If fire ants are disturbed, they can be aggressive and attack people, unlike regular ants.

winterlawnAs one of Pensacola's oldest local lawn care companies, we get this question a lot, and there's a good reason for it. 

In the Pensacola area, our average rainfall in the winter months is a good two inches per month less than in the summer. So, it seems to make sense that you might need to water your grass more in the winter than you do in the summer, because it's getting less water from the rain.
