  • Dear Scott:

“On behalf of the residents of The Sanctuary, I would like to thank you for your kind donation to The Sanctuary Fall Festival of Hockey Tickets and the three $50.00 credit vouchers for Landscape Services.  By raffling these items and others donated by local area businesses, The Sanctuary Community Association was able to defray much of the cost of our annual Fall Festival.

Sanctuary residents enjoyed an afternoon of pony rides, bounce houses and games for the children, cotton candy, food and music.  A good time was enjoyed by all those who attended.

Through the support of businesses such as Scott Lawn and Landscape, Inc., The Sanctuary Social Committee has been able to provide this fun filled Fall afternoon event for the residents for over five years.  Again, thank you for your support.”

Sincerely,

Sandra A.

The Sanctuary Community Association Board Member & Social Committee Chairman

What are Southern Chinch Bugs?

Below is the little bug that causes the many of the issues we see in St. Augustine lawns.

Description of the Damage:

Initially, the base of the oldest grass blades turns yellow while everything else is green. Peel the blade back and chinch bugs will be at the base of the plant. The affected patch expands slowly, yellows, and then dies. It is usually circular in shape. Turf areas that are under stress caused by dry conditions may be damaged much faster.

Chinch Bug description and season:

Immatures (nymphs) and adults feed on fluids at plant base in the thatch layer. Adults are 1/8 to 1/10 of an inch long, have a black body with shiny white wings folded on the back with a triangular-shaped black marking. Young nymphs are reddish-orange with a white band across the back and will darken in color as they mature.  Chinch Bug season is from April to October

Integrated Pest Control:

Natural or “Cultural” control includes maintaining a healthy turf.  Think of it this way, if you are not eating well and your body is not getting the proper liquids and nutrients, you are more susceptible to getting sick and the same is true for lawn and plants. Try avoiding too much or too little water and avoid quick release nitrogen fertilizers as this develops a thick thatch; (use slow release nitrogen).  Another important item is the mowing height at 3.5 – 4 inches and “sharp” mowing blades.  Beneficial insects like ear wigs, big-eyed bugs, parasitic wasps and spiders feed on chinch bugs. Chemical control options include pyrethroids, neonicotinoids, and carbamates.  Try avoiding “All In One” chemicals since they can eliminate chinch bug’s natural enemies.  If the problem is not throughout lawn, treat affected area and six foot buffer area.  Pest control companies have more effective materials for control and often rotate chemicals to prevent tolerance.

Spring 2011 is finally here!!!

We have received numerous calls and questions with regards to brown leaves, palms, grass spots and many other plants. Believe it or not, if plants were healthy and well established into the winter, chances are that they are still alive and will come back.  Croton plants that my wife thought were left for dead are especially resilient for growing right back every year.  Palms can now be cut back to at a 10am to 2 pm position and if you have any questions please give us a call or post a question here.  Crepe Myrtles should be cut back and typically should be done in Mid to late February.
