When the leaves have nearly all fallen and are being taken off of the lawn, it is time again to start thinking about the health of your turf grass. Preventing those broad leaf weeds and nuisance grasses that come all too soon in the growing season is a great option!
It is much less expensive and more effective to prevent them before hand than battling to eliminate them once they have taken hold. The first application of fertilizer with a good quality pre-emergent is most effective in January. This provides a good barrier before the weeds begin to germinate. A good application of fertilizer is really important to help bring the grass out of its winter dormant phase.
Davis Kee Outdoor consultants would be glad to discuss plans for the long term health of your turf, or estimate a one time application if that is more in line with your priorities. And remember, because we buy in bulk, we can usually provide material and labor for about what you would expect to pay at the home improvement store!
