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.
