Dormant winter turf is like the human brain while you’re sleeping. It may be resting, but it’s still doing work. According to Scientific American, sleep “serves to reenergize the body’s cells, clear waste from the brain, and support learning and memory.” For turf, it’s pretty much the same thing.Continue reading
Finish Strong Before Winter Takes Hold Up North
For those up north and in the transition zone, the golf and general turf management season is winding down. When it doesn’t wind down as fast as you thought, that’s usually a good problem to have.

The Benefits and Hazards of Bees on Your Property
In the public eye, bees are often viewed as pests, or even as full-blown villains.

It’s an age-old debate: Would you rather have short-term control or long-term peace of mind? If you’re a hands-on person, you might pick short-term control. You always know what’s going on, and you always have an answer for it.
If you choose long-term peace of mind, you might be the type of person that likes to check things off their list. You trust that everything is under control, and you don’t have to worry about it.
