Summer brings on a great many lawn and garden blessings but with the heat and humidity comes lawn and plant diseases as well as insects bound and determined to destroy your garden. Preventative steps are more effective and often much less expensive than curative applications.  ALSO, summer imposes a great deal of stress on your lawn.  Application of a composted chicken litter fertilizer (Earthworks 3-4-3) will NOT burn your grass and if applied in June, July and August insures a healthy lawn going into fall.  Summer also brings with it the hated spread of wiregrass.  Try the Wiregrass Cocktail to control and kill this pest.
