August Lawn and Garden Projects

If you have warm season Bermuda turf, and crabgrass, sandburs, dallisgrass and other tough weeds are getting the upper hand, now is the time to act.  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.  MSMA is a post-emergent solution that can help eliminate a wide range of weeds.  Two applications about 20 days apart are generally required for best results and MSMA is mixed at rate of one ounce per gallon of water.  We also offer a Sandbur Knockout Combo that provides both pre-and post emergent control of sandburs.  Prodiamine will serve as a strong pre-emergent control for 3-4 months.  And by tank-mixing your first application of Prodiamine with MSMA, you can lay down 3-4 months of pre-emergent control AND begin to kill those early, emerged weeds like crabgrass, dallisgrass and others.

If you have cool-season, fescue turf, August is the time to take action against weeds.  BUT HEED THIS WORD OF CAUTION: You can effectively treat a wide range of weeds with Quincept This is a strong and effective herbicide that mixes and applies easily. But you must take into consideration your fall over-seeding plans.  Herbicides like Quincept and Trimec have a 6-10 week residual, which means that you will not be able to sow grass for that period of time.  The waiting period depends a lot on your soil make-up.  Here in good old NC, we’ve got a lot of clay which slows the leach factor. As always, call us if you have any questions.
