Fertilization at this time is very important for an early Spring green up. It is also very important at this time that crabgrass and foxtail control be applied. Quick action is very important to ensure the greatest percentage of control. Broadleaf weed control is included only after temperatures have reached 45% or above.

Fertilization along with broadleaf weed control is applied on this application. We can only control the broadleaf weeds that are present at this time. Insect activity is starting at this time and insecticides will be added as needed to control surface feeding insects.  A much heavier strength treatment will be used for this application due to the fact that much more difficult weeds are active. Hot weather brings out the chinchbugs and sod webworms. Insecticides are applied on an as needed basis to control them. Fertilizer is applied to help your lawn through the summer heat. Your lawn is prepared for early Fall will applications of herbicides and insecticides for control of weeds and surface damaging insects. Fertilizer will be applied to help prevent winter stress and to promote healthy root development. This also helps your lawn to green up sooner next Spring.



Timing Weeds Insects Fertilization Crabgrass
The Lawn Tailor's Turf Specialists are continuously trained to up on the most recent methods of meeting your lawns needs. They are trained to select the proper feeding times, diagnose your lawn's current condition and know what to do for the upcoming seasons to make sure your lawn is kept healthy and beautiful. We develop an annual timetable for nutrition and treatments and provide a balanced diet that will help protect your lawn from problems during the following season. Several factors govern effective broadleaf weed control. These are temperature, humidity, and the stage of growth of your turf. There are numerous varieties of broadleaf weeds, some that can be controlled and some that cannot. Many of these broadleaf weeds are very difficult to control and therefore may require several treatments. Our specialists are trained to detect weed problems and will alert you when special action is needed.  Most untreated insect problems can destroy an average turf in less than 2 weeks. We apply preventative insecticides that helps control the most common varieties of insects in your lawn. If you suspect an insect problem between regularly scheduled treatments, please call our office for a free analysis and inspection. (Grubs are not part of our regular insect control program and therefore require a special treatment.)  Fertilization is vital to your lawn's health. It makes your lawn green up sooner and more capable to withstand adverse weather conditions and weeds. A balanced fertilizer enriches your lawn with the proper amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potash. These nutrients are specially formulated for the Southwestern Pennsylvania area.    It is essential that crabgrass control be started early in the growing season to keep it from taking over your lawn. Complete control is impossible due to climatic conditions and soil disturbance. Approximately 80% control is achieved by stopping crabgrass before its Spring germination.

This Agronomic Schedule...

 

is prepared expressly for the Southwestern Pennsylvania area and also pertains to some Northern West Virginia areas. It recommends treatments based on agronomic data compiled from thousands of lawns similar to your own. And, it suggests things you can do to keep your lawn properly nourished and groomed - proper watering schedules, mowing heights, and more. It shows how your lawn changes over the course of the year. Keep it handy with your garden tools and mowing supplies and refer to it regularly.

 

Below you will find more details about watering, mowing, and a few other things that could happen to your lawn.

Watering - During dry periods, a lawn may require as much as 4 inches of water per week. Best results are attained when the soil is damp to a depth of 4 to 6 inches after watering. Watering in the morning thoroughly three times a week is considered the best program. If natural rainfall doesn't occur within two days after an application, a light watering is recommended. 

Mowing - Here are some proper mowing tips: 

  1. Mow frequently. 
  2. Keep your blade sharp.
  3. Remove no more than 1/4 to 1/3 of the plant each mowing. (Removing about 1 inch of the grass blade per mow is optimum for the least amount of stress on the grass.)
  4. Do NOT mow your lawn during a drought period when your lawn is under stress.
  5. Do NOT mow your lawn for at least one day after an application.

Insects - Although there are many species of insects, very few will seriously damage turf if control is applied in a timely fashion. In our area, chinch bugs, sod webworms, army worms, and grubs are the main insect problems, call our office immediately, and we will inspect your lawn free of charge. Ants are not considered turf damaging insects, but they are a nuisance pest that can be adressed by The Lawn Tailor.

Thatch - is a layer that forms between the soil surface and the green grass. While it contains some living grass parts, the majority is an accumulation of dead grass stems and roots that are resistant to decompostion. We offer a de-thatching program that removes thatch. Just take a look below or ask for more information!

Core Aeration - is the removal of quarter sized plugs of soil that reach 2-3 inches deep (4 inches apart). This allows 50% more air, water, and nutrients to reach deeper down to the root zone. The plugs extracted are used for top dressing. Loosening the compacted soil stimulates root growth and will reduce costly water run-off by more than 50%.
