Springtime Lawn Care

When your lawn and soil are in harmony, the natural balance will protect your lawn against most insects, weeds, and turf diseases, and improve the heat and cold tolerance of your grass.

Early Spring – In March or April, you should apply Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer. It contains the newest technology, Dimension® Crabgrass Control Herbicide, which will prevent any crabgrass from creeping into your lawn. It also provides the nutrients needed for a beautiful, green, thick lawn. To be effective, the product needs to be activated by rainfall or sprinkler irrigation. Apply it to a dry lawn before a rain, and water it in after application.

Late Spring – In May or June, apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer. Not only will it give your lawn everything it needs to grow green and strong, it also controls dandelions, clover and over 250 other kinds of hard-to-kill broadleaf weeds. Apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer to moist grass so that the weed control granules will stick to the weed leaves for at least a few hours. Do not apply if rainfall is expected within 48 hours of treatment.

Early and Late SpringCorn Gluten Weed Preventer plus Lawn Food helps prevent the growth of certain broadleaf weeds (dandelions, clover, chickweed, etc.) and grassy weeds (crabgrass, etc.). The patented, highly concentrated corn gluten it is made of works as well as many synthetic crabgrass control herbicides. The corn gluten is the source of nitrogen in Organic Weed Preventer, and it will quickly green up the lawn while also releasing organic proteins into the soil to encourage root development. Apply this fertilizer with weed control in the early spring and again in later spring, summer, and fall, but do not seed the lawn for 60-90 days after application.
