Weed Pre-Emergent in CNY: Lawn Care Service Syracuse
What is the most important part of having a weed free lawn?– A Pre-Emergent applied in early spring. This treatment can be applied by liquid or granular application but granular is more popular here in Syracuse, NY. The objective of the Pre-Emergent is to attack the weeds before they sprout out of the ground.
Timing of Application- Here in Syracuse, NY we can start applying our first treatment April 1st. Pre-Emergent must be applied before the ground temperature reaches 50 degrees. A good estimate of this in upstate NY is before the end of April so this gives you 4 weeks to get it down. If you don’t get it down by then the weeds may have germinated and it is too late.
Syracuse, New York, can you feel spring coming?
I know the 50 degree weather we had last weekend let us know its right around the corner! Warmer weather should get you thinking about your lawn and what your lawn needs to look great this year! Here are some great spring lawn tips for our Syracuse lawns.
A Clean Yard: Leftover leaves, sticks and other debris that has accumulated over the winter needs to be cleaned up to allow the sunlight to penetrate in to your soil. Wet leaves left on the lawn can smotheryour grass, leading to disease and eventually kill it if not taken care of. For grass that is matted down a light raking will get it to stand up and start taking in all of that spring sunlight.
