To prevent crabgrass and broadleaf weeds from germinating, you’ll want to apply preemergent in March annually. However, a second application may be needed for heavy crabgrass problems.

Make a fertilizing schedule to keep your lawn looking its best. Fertilize your lawn three to four times per year:
Winterize in November

Lawns should receive approximately an inch of water per week. Because of its heat and draught tolerance, tall fescue turf does exceptionally well in our area.

Fall (September) is the prime time to do lawn renovations such as aerating, dethatching, and reseeding. This allows time for your lawn to soak up nutrients that protect itself during the winter months.

Watch for signs of fungus-like brown patches, blight, or mold during warm and wet conditions. Apply fungicide to help prevent and cure lawn fungus.
