Soggy Summer

Published on September 1st, 2018

Holy Cow! What a wet humid summer!  The main issues as summer dwindles down are weeds and fungus problems in turf and ornamental plantings.  The 2018 weed of the year goes to our old friend yellow nutsedge.  This weed LOVES wet conditions.  It is a spiky fast growing sedge.  It can be controlled with a specialty herbicide.  Many trees are shedding leaves now, this is a result of the wet conditions. Leaf drop at this time of year is not a major concern, as trees will begin their move toward dormancy.
