Just wondering how the turf in other areas of North America is fairing so far. Here in Southern Ontario we've been having a pretty good year to date. Crabgrass is minimal, not too much patch disease to report other than some rust after the rains stopped, and insect damage is light so far. <p>With all that rain we had up until a week or so ago, the lawns have been growing vigorously and have crowded out most weeds. The excessive rain had some of our sandier soiled lawns looking a little pale but otherwise healthy. I used Merit for the first time this year (Diazanon 5g in the past) so we'll see how it works. Only had to treat about 10% of our customers for chinch bugs. Now that it's dry and heating up I imagine they'll become more of a problem.<p>A large number of our cutting customers use the big name fertilizing companies but next year we'll only be offering cutting + fertilizing so all of our customers will be on OUR program. Tired of cutting jungle high lawns that have been getting N-bombed every few weeks since April. <p>So anyway how are the lawns where the rest of you are?<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>www.cutntrim.com
