Maintaining a lush, beatiful lawn can be a challenge here in Charlotte. Being in a transition zone, we really don't have a turf type that is suited for our area. Therefore, every year (especially during some of our brutal summers) we see issues (such as insects, disease, watering) that cause our lawns to suffer.
Although it is doable, it takes a diligent and proactive approach to your lawn care program to get the results you want: a lawn that your friends and family will enjoy and you will be proud of.
I've created this site to provide all the lawn care information I have gathered since becoming a lawn care professional in 1997. This will be an interactive environment, so please share your knowledge and tips, as well as any questions in the comments section below each page.
I will do my best to respond to any questions or you can always contact me directly.
How to use this site:
1. Please read the pages along the navigation bar along the top navigation bar (and post your comments and questions). This will give you all the basic information you need for a successful lawn care program. You'll be more knowledgeable than 99% of other homeowners and most lawn care professionals.
2. Read the posts I create in the "Lawn Care Journal" page (also located in the horizontal navigaiton bar at the top). Whenever lawn care issues come up that I deal with in my day-to-day adventures as a lawn care pro, I will create a new post so you will know whats going on as soon as possible. You can subscribe to this journal and get update notifications by clicking on the RSS feed link on the right sidebar.
99% of the lawns I work with here in Charlotte are Tall Fescue lawns so the information in this site is based on that type of turf. Occasionally I will post about warm season turf types like Bermuda or Zoysia.
Feel free to contact me any time if you would like a free consultation, you can visit my company website by clicking this link: Charlotte Lawn Care.
You will also find quite a few shameless plugs for my lawn care company Whitehouse Lawns throughout this site.
Thanks, Ben Whitehouse
