"Going Green One Lawn At  A Time"

                               Warm Season (Silver)

April - Pre-emergent or balanced fertilizer to prevent crabgrass and encourage healthy growth, Weed control to establish a more uniform appearance*

May - High nitrogen fertilizer for healthy color and top growth, Weed control to prevent further growth of spring annuals*

July -  Aeration to alleviate thatch build up (This allows essential nutrients to reach the root zone and allows the turf to breathe)

August - Check for possible signs of dead patch or decline, Treat summer weeds that thrive in this climate*, Treat nutsedge* (a common occurence in this climate - warm, damp areas of the lawn), Treat crabgrass * (high temperatures for an extended period of time can break down the preventatives in the soil prematurely)

September - Balanced fertilizer to strengthen the root zone before the dormancy stage (this is a healthy helping of nutrients heading into fall), Weed control to keep that healthy appearance*

* - Weed control is used as necessary.  A healthy lawn with proper cultural practices implemented creates a more weed free, healthy environment for all of us.
