January Lawn and Garden Projects

January is time to push-back from the dining room holiday table and get busy. 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, here’s a great old Farmer’s tip for you; January is the time they apply nitrogen to small grains to promote root development. The same is true for your cool-season lawn. If you have fescue or bluegrass, a light application now can anchor cool season grass roots and strengthen the plant for the stressful summer to come. Nitrogen seeks heat, so when the soil surface temperature is below 50 degrees, nitrogen will drive the grass root deeper in the ground to seek warmth. This helps to establish a strong and anchored root system. Don’t be heavy-handed. A fifty pound bag will cover 12,000 square feet.
