As January approaches here are some steps for keeping track of your landscaping inventory to ensure a healthy green lawn for the Spring and through the Summer:
Round 1 January-February
Our first application of the season includes both pre-emergent weed controls and post-emergent weed controls to aid in the prevention of broadleaf weeds and annual crabgrass. We also apply high potassium fertilizer for root development. Grassy weed controls are applied as needed.
Round 2 February-March
Our application of high nitrogen fertilizer will help ensure a quicker green up. A second treatment of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed controls will be applied on this application.
Round 3 April-May
With the onset of warmer temperatures, we will apply a granular slow-release fertilizer to enhance the color of your lawn. Grassy and broadleaf weed controls are applied as needed. This is a good time to core-aerate your lawn, landscape design services are a must if you want a nice landscape.
Round 4 May-June
To help all warm-season lawns maintain color and growth, we apply another granular slow-release fertilizer. Grassy and broadleaf weed controls are applied as needed. Proper mowing and watering are the keys to good landscape maintenance and a green, healthy lawn during this time of the season. This is why we always recommend keeping an eye on any sprinkler system repair needs you may have, you need to make sure your water sprinkler is properly working so that there is always a uniform distribution of water in your lawn. You can also get a lawn aerator rental for your mowing work and begin the process of improving your lawn.
Round 5 July-August
Heading into the end of summer, we apply another granular slow-release fertilizer mixed to maintain the color and feed the roots of your turf. Grassy and broadleaf weed controls are applied as needed.
Round 6 September-October
This application consists of both pre-emergent and post-emergent weed controls to aid in the prevention of annual winter weeds. We also apply high potassium fertilizer designed to strengthen root systems. This treatment is also designed to help minimize the possibility of winter damage.
Round 7 November-December
Our last application of the year is palletized limestone. This treatment will condition the soil and help balance the pH level so that your turf can use our fertilizers more efficiently. Grassy and broadleaf weed controls are applied as needed, and that is why it’s advisable to hire a good lawn mower professional.
