"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.
