Are weeds making it tough for you to grow grass? Our program offers pre-emergent control for crab grass and spot treatments for broadleaf weeds when necessary.
The first step in weed control is to develop a dense, properly managed turf. If this approach fails to prevent weed infestation, herbicides that will control most turfgrass weeds are available. Annual grass weeds, such as crabgrass, can be controlled with pre-emergence herbicides. These chemicals are applied prior to weed seed germination in early to mid-spring.
Are insects or diseases preventing your grass from growing? Our program provides protection against sub-surface and surface feeding insects.
Does your lawn take a beating from summer heat and recreation, creating compact dry soils? We recommend aerating your lawn in fall annually or at least every other year.
Luckily soil compaction in lawns is easily solved with aeration. Aeration is used to alleviate soil compaction and can significantly reduce thatch. Aeration is best during periods of cool weather - late summer to early fall to facilitate rapid recovery of the grass. Spring aeration can bring weed seeds to the soil surface and create voids for weeds to germinate and grow. During the aeration process new seed is spread on the soil surface and into the newly created cavities created by aeration. New seedlings are more successful during this time because of reduced weed competition and because the new grass will have two cool growing seasons (fall and spring) before it encounters its first period of heat stress. In spring, soils also may be too wet for good seedbed preparation.
