Fall Fertilization Treatment

This Time of year we apply weed control and either a granular or liquid fertilizer –depending on  your lawns specific needs. When temperatures exceed 90 degrees Kentucky Bluegrass and other lawn grasses begin to stress, affecting the overall appearance and ability to compete with weeds which thrive on hot weather. You may have noticed your lawn has needed more frequent weed control treatments this year than usual due to this summer’s record breaking hot/dry weather. Continue watering your lawn well (3 to 4 days each week) until daytime temperatures drop into the 70’s for four or more consecutive days, then decrease watering to 1 to 2 days each week. This time of year is a great time to overseed your lawn to improve thin lawn areas which are struggling due to shade or lawn disease. This is a service we will be offering this fall.
