Now that the holidays are over, and the new year is here.. How about a better looking lawn for 2013? Even though we’ve still got a ways to go until the grass starts growing again, now is the time to think about preventing crabgrass and other difficult to control weeds from invading your lawn this spring and summer.
Crabgrass germinates when soil temperatures are consistently above 55 degrees. We typically will start to see these temperatures in Metro Atlanta around the end of February, however even before this time we can see some warmer weather, and with this some earlier germination is possible.
We generally start our Round #1 Crabgrass Prevention treatment in early February. The products we use will stay active in the soil for an extended period of time, so even if we are a little early, when the conditions are right for germination your lawn will be covered. We follow up with a second application 6 to 8 weeks later when the first application is about broken down. This second treatment will extend your pre-emergent control, as well as have some post-emergent control to any young crabgrass that may be trying to germinate.
