Master Gardening tips by Harry L. King M.G. Master Gardener Your lawn is a battlefield fighting both visible and invisible enemies. Some visible signs that you are losing the battle are-- an assortment of weeds have invaded, the grass under the trees has thinned out, there are browned out areas in the lawnand you suspect there are creepy-crawly things under the sod. There is something basically wrong when a lawn goes bad. Killing weeds in a scraggly lawn is not the answer. Sod "Trouble comes when there is too much thatch..." -. Harry King e elo HII lee i*oll I* may temporarily solve the problem as well as seeding the bare spots helps for a season. You will never get along with ' your lawn on friendly terms until these basic requirements are met: the variety of grass in the lawn must fit your climate, soil and degree of sun and shade available. Air and water and nutrients must be able to penetrate every square foot of soil to a depth of eight to 12 inches at the same rate. Sod surface drainage is essential so that water does not stand on the lawn. Good drainage throughout the soil is a must. Aerate the lawn if you haven't all ready done so. Poke holes in the lawn with a sharp stick, pitch fork, garden fork or do your lawn work in your gold shoes. You may rent a power aerator to take plugs from the lawn. Anyway to get air and water fo the grass roots. If your lawn feels spongy when you walk over it, check for thatch. Thatch is the build-up of undecomposed debris and plant parts between the grass blades and the soil surface. A modest amount of thatch is actually beneficial. It shades and cools the soil, deters some weeds and helps give the lawn a cushiony feel when walked on. Trouble comes when there is" too much thatch. More than lz inch is too much. Thatch can build up to where it acts as a "roof" over the soil. This "roof" makes its hard for air, fertilizer and water to penetrate to the lawn roots. This thatch or "duff" can actually become so thick it will form a waterproof cover over the soil. Since the lawn roots cannot breath, eat or drink sufficiently, the grass becomes listless and frustrating to the gardener. If ),our lawn is acting tis way after you have done everything else Correct- ly, check for thatch. A good stand of grass in a mild -  summer area loses about one inch of water a week. In I0t areas with dry winds blowing, ab two 'tches a week. Sixty gallon:.'ater appl to 100 square feet of l4quals ab0d['one inch of water. The average sprinkler delivers five gallons of water a minute. So if you use one sprinkler per 1,000 square feet of lawn the sprinkler would run two hours before it could replace the inch of water lost that week. Using these figures you can roughly figure how much time your sprinkler should be running. Put some cans under the the area covered by your sprinklers. Check and see how many hours it takes for lVz to 2 inches of water to accumulate. This test will also tell you your sprinkler's wetting pattern. Some sprinklers deli- ver more water up close, others at their fartherest range. Remember, shallow watering gives shallow roots, deep watering gives deep roots. If you raise a new lawn this year, deep watering is a necessity. Watering frequency will have to he increased on established lawns during thb'h0t ea- son:  :" Be sure to shampoo the lawn with a hose-end sprayer and 1 ounce of liquid soap (bin-degradable) per 10 gallons of water. Do this monthly, and wash your ornamentals with this mixture too. Bugs don't like soap, and this is an inexpensive way to get them to move on. If you haven't done so now is the time to raise the lawn mower adjustment. Lawn grass two and a half to four inches tall is not too tall for our area. This avoids mowing off the crown This taller grass protects the lawn's roots, cools them and helps to conserve water. Since this tall lawn prevents many weed seeds from touching ground, they are prevented from sprouting and growing. Many weed seeds will be vacumed up directly into the grass catcher. These seeds and grass may go directly into the compost pile where the heat of the pile will kill the seeds. If you haven't fertilized your lawn as yet, do it now. All of the cool season grasses go into a summer slump where summers are hot. The blue grasses almost stop growing but stay green in mid-summer. Send these grasses into summer semi-dormancy as green as possible. This can be done by a monthly feeding at half the manufactures recommend- ation of by following the manufacturers suggestion on the label. In which case you will only feed the lawn three or four times a year. Whichever method you use remember to cut the spreader recommendations in half and go back and fourth over the area. First in one direction, then the other. This way there are no missed or burned areas. Gypsum will check many of the problems that are often mistaken for lawn diseases, as well as fertilizer burn.
