September and October are the best times to get started! We are currently Aerating and Over-seeding.
The advantage of liquid applications over granular only applications is that we can place multiple products on the lawn at the same time. This saves time and money, and in most cases, we don't have to wait for rain/watering for the products to start working.
Our first application includes;
post-emergent (kills existing weeds)
pre-emergent (prevents weed seeds from developing)
surfactant (helps prevent water beading on plant)
and fertilizer. (feeds lawn)
You are receiving multiple products for one low investment!
If this is your first season on our program please read this carefully.
It usually takes a full year to see significant progress. Yes, You will see weeds dying throughout the season, but your lawn will become more bare in this process.
Our program is a very aggressive weed control program.
If you're lawn has not been on a weed control program in recent past and does not currently have a lot of fescue, It will look worse as the season progresses.
By August and September, it may look very bare and brown, usually the fescue is dormant in the hottest months, but it is not dead.
There will be bare spots where the weeds once were.
This is a point where a lot of our clients are like holy smokes, we are not making any progress, why should we spend so much to aerate and over-seed this? This is the worst time to cancel our program, The aeration and seeding is where we repair the lawn and actually plant your fescue. It is the turning point for your lawn!
Please visit our Aeration Page for more information on this and fescue
We have excellent control over broad-leaf weeds, including clover, bittercress, henbit. We also have good control over crabgrass, we have two pre-emergant applications to help prevent it from coming and 3 post-emergent applications to hit it after it has arrived.
BERMUDA GRASS CONTROL; There is not a product on the market that will kill Bermuda grass on contact, without killing fescue as well. We do use a product that suppresses it, it is in three of our applications, the idea, is that if continued to be suppressed enough, it will eventually fade out of the lawn, this part could take years.
This is not a quick fix for any lawn, this is ongoing maintenance program, like mowing, you stop cutting the grass, it will become overgrown, if the weed control stops, the weeds will start to reappear.
In the spring there are mostly broadleaf weeds that are easily controlled. As summer starts to come, you may see new weeds that have just germinated, the applications are designed to treat those weeds as the come up. Other than our pre-ermergants, we cannot treat weeds that have not popped up yet. However, our current or future applications will take care of them as they come.
