“Thymely Advice”…Prevent Crabgrass Now!
If you have had crabgrass in your yard and understand what a pain it can be, then let me remind you that right now is the time to choose your plan of attack for avoiding having to deal with crabgrass at all this year! We know you work hard to keep your lawn looking nice, and we want to help you keep it that way. Sure there are sprays that we offer that help kill it after it matures, but wouldn’t it be great to prevent it all together? 
We recommend one of two plans of attack.


 The first is All Seasons Crabgrass Preventer with Fertilizer by Fertilome. This product has a pre-emergent that controls crabgrass before it germinates. It provides season long coverage with only one application, and it covers your Spring fertilization all in one! This is definitely for lawns that are established and not going to be seeded in the Spring.







The second option is for anyone that did dormant seeding or plans to put down some grass seed this Spring. Hi-Yield Turf & Ornamental is another great option for a pre-emergent to nip crabgrass in the bud before germination. While this product contains no fertilizer, it can be applied 2 weeks after signs of your grass germinating! You don’t need to wait until you’ve mowed your lawn 2 or 3 times like you would with a typical weed killer or fertilizer, because there is no fertilizer. If you are seeding this Spring, this is your option!
