Spring is here! Your plants are rubbing the sleep from their eyes and getting ready to wake up from their long Winter’s nap. Unfortunately, so are the pesky lawn weeds that are sure to make you want to pull your hair out if allowed to germinate and take over your lawn.
Doing one simple thing now will help get you the results you want down the road in those lovely summer months: Apply Fertilome Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food. This is one of the most important steps of lawn care, not only to get the yard boosted with energy and rich green color, but to also prevent those unwanted weed seeds from germinating as soil temperatures rise. Crabgrass, one of our worst lawn weed grasses, is an annual weed meaning that it only comes back from seed each spring. Applying Fertilome’s Lawn Food Plus Crabgrass Preventer will assist in preventing the majority of the crabgrass seed lying dormant on the soil’s surface. This improved product contains an alternate pre-emergent weed preventer that covers a much broader range of grass and broadleaf weeds for added control. It comes in 5,000 sq.ft. (20 lb) or 10,000 sq.ft. (40 lb) bags. Generally speaking, a 1/3 acre lot will require the 40 lb bag.
