February Lawn and Garden Projects

February is the time to get your heart rate up.  There are two great ways to do this:

1) Valentine’s Day Lovey-Dovey Activities

2) Lawn Care Projects

Let’s focus on #2.   If you have a bermuda warm-season lawn, now is the time to get a jump on dormant weeds like sandburs, crabgrass and dallisgrass.  We have solutions for all of your weed issues and we’re happy to take the time to talk with you about your specific needs.  If you want to elimimate sandburs, a tough pre-emergent herbicide like Dithiopyr can really make an impact. We also offer a Sandbur Knockout Combo that provides both pre-and post emergent control of sandburs. Now is also the time to act to control crabgrass. Prodiamine will serve as a strong pre-emergent control for 3-4 months.

If you have cool-season, fescue turf, mid-February is the time to to wake things up and get ready for Spring.  If you did not over-seed in the Fall, now is a great time to put down Stone Brothers & Byrd grass blends like our world famous Spectrum.  Apply your grass and our SBB slow-release 30-4-10 fertilizer.  If you did your seeding in the early Fall and were able to make several mowings, your lawn is established and you can now apply a pre-emergent herbicide like Prodiamine.

Combine the Prodiamine with  SBB 30-4-10 fertilizer and you will be all set for a beautiful Spring.
