Give the Gift of Time

We all know that Father’s Day is coming up soon. Dad’s all around central Minnesota will be opening boxes filled with necktie, power tools, or cologne. Now don’t get me wrong, those are great gifts, but are they really what dad’s want? How many dad’s actually like wearing ties? Power tools are great, but that’s a gift that reminds dad of all of the repairs and projects that need to be done around the house. We have a better idea. [Read more…]

Crabgrass Control

Getting Crabgrass under control early in the spring is one of the keys to enjoying a healthy lawn all summer. That makes Pre-Emergent Crabgrass control the most important application of the year for a healthy lawn.

Crabgrass Control

Crabgrass will germinate when the soil temperature gets between 55 – 60 degrees and holds that temperature for about a week.  Crabgrass sprouts every year  from seeds dropped in the previous year. Pre-Emergent Crabgrass control acts like a blanket for your lawn and doesn’t allow seeds to germinate through the blanker or barrier.

How Long Will Crabgrass Control Last?

Crabgrass Control

Pre-Emergent Crabgrass control will protect your lawn for about 4 months. Or less if we have a rainy spring.  Rain will deteriorate the blanket which will reduce it’s ability to prevent crabgrass.  A s

Slow release fertilizer is applied at the same time giving your lawn a healthy start to  the season.  You should follow up by applying fertilizer and a variety of weed controls every 6 weeks for a healthy and consistent lawn.  Remember a consistent feeding is recommended for a healthy lawn.

Watering Your Lawn

After and in between all applications your lawn should be watered as needed, remembering about 1 inch per week for a healthy lawn.  If you aren’t sure if you are watering enough take any type of dish and put out in your lawn while watering and measure the water in the dish when done.  It will tell you how much was put down in whatever duration the water was running.

Stay Safe

At Grow Rite we use environmentally responsible lawn care products. But that doesn’t mean you don’t need to be cautious after an application. Whenever fertilizer and weed control is applied to your lawn, you should always stay off until your lawn is dry. Once your lawn is dry it’s safe for you to enjoy.  Remember, always wear shoes the day of an application as a precaution.
