Another new year is upon us, so the LawnAmerica team is busy preparing for another year in providing lawns that our customers love while making our world a little greener. We typically will begin our spring weed-control later in January, as long as the North Carolina weather cooperates, which often does not happen. But if we’re lucky and the sun is shining, we’ll start in with our pre-emergent treatment that prevents crabgrass and other grassy weeds from germinating. Barricade, the product we use, is really good. However even Barricade will not prevent all weeds from coming up, especially broadleaf weeds. Those will need to be sprayed after they germinate, later during the spring. This is one reason why successful lawn care needs a program, with consistent treatments, about every 5-8 weeks in our case.
Our very best program is our 7-Step Showcase Care Program, with lawn treatments about every 5-6 weeks. All of our programs include this important Step 1 Spring Weed-Control, as the pre-emergent herbicide is so important in setting the stage for successful weed-control during the season. Lawncare is like anything else….you generally get what you pay for. So the more frequently your lawn is serviced with weed-control and fertilization, the better the results will be.
While we are a week away from going out to treat lawns, we’re busy with staff education, planning, working on equipment, and many other projects in preparation for a great, and greener 2017 at LawnAmerica!
