Timing is everything when it comes to treating your grass with fertilizer and weed control applications. Different varieties of grass require different treatments, applied strategically throughout the year:

  • Spring: Late winter/early spring is time to put down pre-emergent to prevent summer weeds such as crabgrass. It is also a good time to begin feeding your lawn with fertilizer to promote new growth.
  • Summer: Fertilization of warm-season grasses is recommended during the summer months to facilitate growth, and herbicides are recommended throughout the growing season on a monthly basis. Aerations are also recommended to increase nutrient uptake. Our fescue lawns are treated with fungicide to help prevent brown patch disease and are monitored for grubs or other pests.
  • Fall: Moving into the fall, our warm season lawns are treated with pre-emergent herbicide to prevent winter weeds, while are cool-season lawns get aerated and seeded and treated with a starter fertilizer.
  • Winter: In Cary, Apex, and Morrisville, we recommend your lawn’s nutrients need to change in the winter in preparation for the cold weather. Our fescue lawns are treated with a winterizing treatment which is high in potassium and strengthens the roots during the winter months.

While our natural instincts may be to solve problems as they arise, prevention and preparation are key, and lawn care is no exception. Now is the perfect time to get a head start on weed prevention and fertilizing to ensure a beautiful lawn all season long.
