The first treatment of the year, usually applied in March or April, includes a balanced rate of granular fertilizer with crabgrass preventative. This application is designed to enhance root development while increasing disease and drought tolerance. Our crabgrass preventative is effective for multiple species of grassy weeds . . . not just crabgrass!
Please take note, the crabgrass preventative that we utilize inhibits seed germination. That is why we kindly request that if you are reseeding in the spring please notify us prior to your applications. What we’ll do is switch out your traditional balanced fertilizer with crabgrass preventative, and instead apply a “starter” fertilizer that will help your new seed to germinate and grow strong. Additionally, we will refrain from weed control treatments until you have mowed the new grass a couple of times.
