Weeds are probably your greatest concern this time of year, as the heat outside and your watering schedule prompts them to pop their ugly heads out and try to take over your lawn, garden, and landscape.

One of the garden trends we mentioned earlier this year was the “hyperlocal” one – the use of native and region-specific grasses, flowers, trees, and ornamentals in order to cut back maintenance costs and promote beautiful, lush lawns and landscapes that need little care. When it comes to naturescaping and hyperlocal gardening, a specific trend stands out: the replacement of traditional turf with native local grasses – they may not look the same, but they are definitely more resilient to heat, pests, diseases, and other extreme weather conditions.

Today, our lawn care Daytona Beach FL specialists have chosen three native Floridian grasses that can successfully replace all traditional, high-maintenance turfs and make your property look like a small corner of wild paradise.

The first few weeks after your sod renovation is very important and requires a lot of attention. The three main factors are watering, mowing, and lawn care. Watering may seem obvious, but in our experience customers try to avoid this. The moment pieces of sod get dry, they will shrink, causing gaps. This is irreversible. If you mow too early you can stunt root growth, which could lead to an extended initial period or even kill the turf.
