Our 1st step features a pre-emergence application with N (nitrogen) for managing unwanted crabgrass and foxtail type grasses, as well as promote growth for Spring.
For our 2nd step we have another, although different, pre-emergent with N (nitrogen). (Recent years have had heavy rain or prolonged spring which increases the prime germination window for crabgrass and other unwanted weeds. For this reason we have adopted using 2 pre-emergent steps)
The 2nd step also includes a post-emergent to manage crabgrass even further. Using a variety of different approaches to manage crabgrass like grasses has proven more effective that using the same mixture twice.
The 3rd step consists of a low nitrogen formula usually containing more P (phosphorus) and K (potassium). A low nitrogen formula will reduce chemical burn from hot summer temperatures while adding nutrients your lawn needs.
Lastly, we have a winterize formula to feed your lawn throughout the cold winter months and give you a head start in the spring. Leaf clean-up may be required before this step. For customers who have mowing and fertilizer service, we plan for applying the last step within 1-2 days after mowing.
Customers who have this service should note these tips:
White grubs can be pesky creatures that essentially eat the roots out from under your grass. Having a few grubs is common and is not harmful to lawns. An infestation can mean patches of dead grass that can be easily pulled away from the turf. Digging down a few inches should result in seeing many grubs often packed together in the area you dug. Other lawn ailments can look similar to the damage that grubs cause, getting a proper diagnosis can help from applying unneeded chemicals to your lawn, saving you money. Grub control effects more that just grubs as well. There are many creatures in your lawn and grub control can negatively effects these helpful bugs and larvae.
