Well, this has been a crazy spring! In the 25 years we have been in business this is the latest we have ever gotten started. Rain, snow, hail, sleet, flooding.........its been a challenge. Thank you to everyone for being patient in us getting out and doing our thing. With our new organic approach and application system we do not have to start as early in the year but its nice to get out and get to work.
The lawns we are treating with our organic material look great. The ones we did last fall looked awesome coming out of dormancy so we are excited about how the lawns will develop through the year. We are beginning to spray the broadleaf weeds. With the past summers heat and drought we are seeing a few weeds in the thinned out areas where there is not grass to outcompete the weeds for space to germinate. We use a preemergent in the early spring but that is for crabgrass and some other grassy weeds. This product does not help control broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, clover, plantain, ground ivy and other broadleaf weeds. We will be getting on them from here on out.
The weather man says we should have a warm up coming and that woudl be nice to see. Remember all that rain we received is running down the rivers. If we get into a dry spell some watering may be necessary. Also we have started mowing and keep those blades high! Mow at 3.5 inches if you can. The longer the blade, the deeper the root system and our grasses in our lawns are supposed to be mowed at that length. We have different types of grass and management techniques than golf courses.
We hope you have been enjoying the spring and we are looking forward to continuing our services through the year.
