spring lawncare

Spring is Here!!

Time to open up those windows and get some fresh air!! It’s also time to get that yard cleaned up and ready for BBQ season!

Your lawn needs a few things to be successful this season. Sunlight, airflow and water.

It’s important to clean your yard of large debris to allow that sunlight and water to get into the roots.

Now is also a great time to clear your mulch beds, do some weeding and prune those hedges. While we don’t do this type of work, we work closely with a number of landscapers in the area that do. We’d be happy to share their information with you.

Another important aspect to look at is standing water. Clean out those gutters and dump any standing water you have in the yard. This will help tremendously with insect control.

MARCH? That seems a little early…

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. 

Soil temperatures

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.
