Dr. Gil Landry discusses setting your lawnmower to the proper height for mowing your grass.

These settings should insure a healthy lawn. Grass Heights: Hybrid Bermuda 1.5", Zoysiagrass 1.5", Common Bermuda grass 1-2", Fescues 2-3", Turf type Fescues 2", Mow often enough to remove only 1/3 the leaf height.

Dr. Tim Murphy, a weed specialist, gives us ideas for dealing with common summer weeds.

Specifically he addresses Dallisgrass, Crabgrass, Common Lespedeca and Violets. The four rules he thinks most important are: 1. Keep turf grass healthy 2. Consider pre emergent herbicide 3. Consider post emergent herbicide 4. Be patient and persistent.

For a greener lawn, you might want to consider Iron. We'll show you how.
