Spring Lawn Care
- Apply pre-emergent herbicides to help control crabgrass, dallisgrass, sedges, and broadleaf weeds.
- Consider your disease control methods to address possible brown patch.
- Use a slow-release fertilizer on all flowering ornamentals and roses to ensure blooms in late spring and early summer.
- Consider using a systemic insecticide that can translocate through ornamentals and control those late spring, early summer insects.
Summer Lawn Care
- Cut down on stressed-out turf and too much top growth by using low-nitrogen fertilizers, which will prevent disease and insect problems.
- Monitor shrubs and ornamentals for insects and disease. Treat them as necessary to prevent unneeded stress during warm temperatures and drought.
- Fertilize ornamentals with a slow-release fertilizer during summer months to promote health during fall.
Fall Lawn Care
- Get the right nutrients on your lawn during this important time. The turf will store the nutrients and help make your lawn healthy in spring.
- Don’t forget the ornamentals when spreading out the nutrients during fall.
Winter Lawn Care
- Slow down weed growth in the spring by using pre-emergent herbicides.
- Overwinter your turf and ornamentals with high-potassium fertilizers to protect the root system during winter.
