Spring has arrived, and San Antonio lawns are blooming with life! Discover the latest buzz from your own Texas oasis in this week’s Boots on the Ground report, brought to you by San Antonio branch manager, Bradley Luckie.


Many lawns are already looking a bit dry right now due to a lack of irrigation. Now is the time to turn on those irrigation systems and schedule regular watering cycles. We recommend the cycle and soak method for the most efficient watering while navigation restrictions:

  • Water in three or four shorter cycles
  • 1” of water per week
  • Alternate zones to allow time to soak between cycles

Of course, weeds are making an appearance! The best way to prevent and fight back against a weed infestation is to mow. A regular mowing schedule will help decrease weeds in your yard and encourage new growth! Here’s a mowing guide to follow for happy grass:

  • Bermuda: 2”
  • Augustine: 3.5-4”
  • Fine Blade Zoysia: 2”
  • Palisades Zoysia: 3”

Bermuda & St. Augustine lawns are rejoicing in the warmer weather and have almost completely emerged from dormancy! Zoysia lawns are a bit slower to respond due to the weather fluctuations, so it may take a little longer to see a complete green-up.

Encourage a healthier lawn and a greener spring by dethatching your grass. This will allow water and nutrients to reach the root systems.


Overall plant health is looking moderate for this time of year. We’re seeing leaf spot on Red Tips and with the warmer weather, will start seeing more insect activity. Be on the lookout for leaf damage!

We’re also seeing instances of overwatering: only water as needed and allow the soil to dry out a bit between waterings.

Looking to add a new plant to your yard? Refer to our planting guide to avoid improper planting.


Here’s what the pest population looks like in your area:

  • Cockroaches: Mild
  • Rodents: Minimal
  • Wasps & Hornets: Moderate
  • Spiders: Mild
  • Mosquitoes: Mild
  • Fleas & Ticks: Minimal

Ant activity is also on the rise, both inside and out. Banish ants from your home by keeping your house sanitized, sealing windows and entryways, and throwing out your food in the kitchen trash instead of cans around the house. For more pest protection tips, check out our pest blog.
