As we move through the final weeks of winter, we are heartened to know spring is just a few weeks away…at least on the calendar!... and this means the lawn care season is once again upon us.
We highly anticipate the first lawn application for all of our clients as it sets the stage for the rest of the year. Why is the first application so important?
- Pre-emergent, which is designed to control the majority of annual crabgrass and some weed varieties, must be applied prior to crabgrass germination for premium effectiveness. The window of opportunity to get our pre-emergent down is generally from now through Derby.
- A properly balanced fertilization is necessary as the lawn comes out of winter’s dormancy. This will help the turf recover for cold winter conditions and contribute toward a beautiful, healthy green lawn this year.
- As soon as warmer temperatures return, spring weeds will begin to ‘pop’. Appropriate broadleaf weed controls will be applied with your first services to keep chickweed, henbit and dandelion populations ‘in check’ as they make their seasonal appearance.
Soon winter will be just a memory. Preparations have already been made to ensure a successful spring season. We hope to see you on your lawn soon!!
