Building a strong foundation for your lawn starts with weed control.
Controlling weeds is one of the most effective ways you can increase the curb appeal of your home and increase the value of your property. To get started building a strong foundation for your lawn, follow this useful lawn care guide.
The 6 Key Steps to Maintaining a Beautiful Lawn All Year Long
- Apply an Initial Application of Lawn Care Products by the End of March or April.
This first application to your lawn for the year will provide your grass, shrubbery, and flowers with all the nutrients necessary to start blossoming after the cooler winter months. Professional lawn care experts recommend you use Bio Boost, slow release fertilizer, crabgrass preventer, and broadleaf weed control – which can be weather dependent.
Bio Boost can be particularly helpful with its 100% organic, bio-nutritional formulation. It enhances the vitality of the soil. Pre-emergent weed control is also very important to prevent weed seeds and crabgrass from taking root everywhere throughout your lawn early.
- Apply a 2nd Application between the Start and End of May.
For your next application, we utilize Bio Boost and slow release fertilizer again, along with weed, insect control and grub control if you choose to do so. The insect control will help reduce the likelihood of insects feeding on the surface of your vegetation.
- As June and July Begins to Roll Around, Now is the Time for a 3rd
Apply another application of Bio Boost and slow release fertilizer. Then spot treat any particularly pesky weeds.
Keep Your Lawn Strong and Healthy through July and Mid-August.
Start utilizing surface feed applications and apply another round of Bio Boost and slow release fertilizer. Again, keep an eye out for hard to control weeds and spot spray them as necessary.
- Start Preparing Your Lawn for Cooler, Fall Temperatures.
From the latter half of August to the middle of September, apply a 5th application of Bio Boost and slow release fertilizer to help your plants and grass to help them increase their carbohydrate reserves in their roots. Depending on the climate, broadleaf weed control can be utilized at this time as well.
- Apply a Final Application to Get Your Plants Ready for Winter.
From the last few weeks of September to the end of November, utilize your final application of Bio Boost and slow release fertilizer. This will give your lawn all the key microbes and nutrition it needs to fight through the colder months to grow strong once spring turns the corner again.
The Many Benefits of Having a Full-Service Lawn Program
Between a wide array of lawn treatment applications, grub control, and particularly hard to control weeds, it may be especially helpful to hire a full-service lawn care team to take care of all the work when it comes to maintaining your beautiful lawn. In addition, to the steps we’ve outlined to take throughout the year, maintaining the health of your lawn could also mean having to fight lawn diseases, testing the pH level of your soil, applying specific types of nutrients to combat deficiencies, and dethatching or aerating the soil as necessary.
