Spring is APPROACHING! Pre-emergent treatment of lawn weeds, and fungus.

We have had an uncharacteristically warm then cold winter. This allowed the weeds to grow very strong around December, then put everything into a mild dormancy once we got a few freezes. Once things start to warm up come spring, the weeds are going to go crazy . We have a few methods of keeping them under control before they get out of hand. We can treat them with a pre-emergent granular selective herbicide, such as snapshot. This will kill any weeds before they come up, it sterilizes the seeds etc, so you will have less weeds in the turf, in turn you will have stronger grass that is not struggling to compete with the unwanted weeds.

Down south, during the cooler seasons, we have an issue with brown patch. This fungus causes large circular areas of turf to turn brown and die. It is controllable, with a few treatments of fungicide with azoxystrobin you can nearly rid yourself of the fungus. It is most common when the days are warm and the nights are cool, causing the fungus to spread. We are experts at diagnosis and treatment of lawn diseases, along with controlling and eradicating weeds in the turf.

Give us a call to schedule a consultation,  I will come by and assess the lawn and provide a quote outlining different levels and methods of treatment based on the severity and circumstances.
