You might ask, “Chris, why are you doing an application today? It’s supposed to snow on Friday!”
This might be an extreme example; but it does bring up a good point. Why do we perform applications so early in the spring and even sometimes in the late winter? The answer is actually pretty simple.
Weeds need a specific soil temperature to start their germination process. When we get our products down early enough, we can head off those weeds before our customers even see them! Timing, plus an early application of pre-emergent with a nutrient rich fertilizer, leaves you with the perfect combination of food for your grass and soil….and the protection you’ll need to keep crabgrass and other invasive weeds out of the turf all year long.
