What can you do to prepare your Lawn for Spring and Summer

We are right on the edge of Spring and what we’ve done so far this year has been instrumental in our preparation for healthy, green summer lawns.

The opportunity to prevent Springtime weeds was the treatment’s main focus but potassium plays a critical role in turf development and should not be underemphasized. Potassium is involved in:

– root strength,

– water retention,

– plant cell wall strength and

– drought tolerance.

Potassium plays a major role in preparing the turf for guaranteed rigors to come.


Let’s talk about treatment cycle targets winter grassy weeds

This month, my focus for the treatment cycle targets winter grassy weeds. Poa annua and Rescue grass are two weeds that are classified as cool-season varieties and thrive in our mild winter-to-early season spring temperatures. My product choices for this application are broad-spectrum and targets most every other weed that is active at this time.

After this month through mid-fall, our primary treatment focus shifts from weed mitigation to grass plant development. Weed control never takes a true subsidiary role, though, but the process does change as the ground and air temperatures rise and the grass-plant comes out of dormancy. The best defense against weeds is thick, healthy turfgrass.

With higher air temperatures we also get some party crashers . . . insects. Mosquitos, ticks, chiggers, mites, fire ants and more now have the weather necessary to proliferate. Some of these insects chew on you, some chew on your ornamentals, some chew on your turf and some chew on the roots of everything and anything that they can. We can stop them.
