Lawn Application Lawn Applications Early Spring Shadegrass Weed Control & Fertilizer (Mid January thru February) This early spring treatment controls common broadleaf weeds such as; dandelions, henbit, chickweed & violets. Additionally, your turf will be fertilized with a liquid formulation of nitrogen and potassium to promote a good, dense, dark green, shadegrass turf. Spring Shadegrass Weed Control Treatment (March thru Mid April) The spring shadegrass weed control treatment is especially formulated with a combination of top of the line pre & post emerge chemicals for excellent control of grassy weeds and broadleaf weeds. Difficult to control weeds, like violets, are suppressed with this application. 100% control of violets is impossible, but in most cases we can significantly suppress the violet growth. Spring Weed Control For Warm Season Turf (February thru April) This application will effectively control two varieties of weeds, broadleaf weeds and grassy weeds. Examples of common broadleaf weeds are dandelions, henbit, and chickweed. Grassy weeds would include crabgrass, foxtail, and poa annua. Ideally this treatment should be applied between mid-February and the last week of April. However, a spring weed control application can be made later in the spring with excellent results, but it may take up to 30 days for the weeds to die that were present at the application. Spring Fertilizer (Mid April thru 1st Week of June) Our professionally formulated fertilizer is applied to your lawn (warm season & cool season grasses) in early spring. This special blend of fertilizer is designed to produce excellent blade and root development, as well as a lush, green turf. Watering is not generally necessary unless you want to mow immediately. A post-emerge application will be made on any persistent weeds present at the time of application. Early Summer Fertilizer (Mid June thru Late July) Our professionally formulated fertilizer is applied to the lawn in mid June to early July. This treatment will give your lawn a lush, green appearance, while making it thicker and healthier. A post-emerge application will be made on any persistent weeds present at the time of application. Second Pre-Emerge (Mid May thru Late July) The second pre-emerge application is designed to give your lawn the additional weed control that may be necessary due to soil disturbances and weather conditions that affect the spring weed control application. Additionally, this special formulation controls 85% to 90% of Nutgrass problems in the bermudagrass throughout the summer months. The second pre-emerge application is normally applied between May 15th and July 1st. Late Summer Fertilizer (August thru September) This late summer fertilizer is applied during the month of August through September and is designed to maintain the beauty and health of your turfgrass. We recommend watering this application in within 72 hours after the application. A post-emerge application will be made on any persistent weeds present at the time of application. Grub Control (September thru Mid October) Grubs are small, white, C-shaped larvae of the June beetle. These destructive insects can damage your lawn by feeding on the root system. Since grubs feed below the surface of the turf, their damage may go unnoticed until extensive deterioration has occurred. Damage usually appears as small brown spots or large irregular patches. For best results, this treatment should be applied in late summer. Fall Shadegrass Fertilizing (Mid September thru October) A well rounded application of fertilizer is applied in mid-September to promote a good, dense shadegrass turf. Additionally, we encourage root development with potassium and phosphorus elements in the fertilizer to strengthen the turfgrass. We have designed this application to correspond with a fall overseeding of fescue grass. We recommend overseeding your turf every fall to maintain a thick stand of grass. Winter Weed Control (Early October thru Late December) Many problem weeds you see in the spring actually germinated during the fall months. The Winter Weed Control application is designed to control the most common winter weeds found in your lawn, such as; dandelions, henbit, chickweed, and dock. This application begins in early October and continues into the month of December. Late Fall Shadegrass Fertilizing (November thru Mid December) Preparing your shadegrass turf for the winter months is vitally important. The late fall shadegrass fertilization promotes winter hardiness and strength within the plant’s internal structure. Root depth & strength is a key to maintaining a healthy shadegrass turf through the hot summer months of the coming season! Optional Treatments for Lawns Aeration (During the Fall Months Before the Soil Freezes) This process is perhaps the best non-chemical service you can have performed on your lawn. Aeration helps improve water and fertilizer up-take in the lawn by relieving compaction of the soil. It also helps to dethatch your lawn by bringing micro-organisms to the top of the turf that naturally break down thatch. Shadegrass Renovation (September thru October) Early Fall is the best time of year to overseed your shadegrass lawn with a high quality fescue seed. Pinkston’s offers a comprehensive shadegrass renovation process that will renew your fescue and give you an awesome looking lawn in the Spring. This special package includes; core aeration to relieve compaction and to prepare the soil for seeding, two complete seedings with a top rated tall hybrid fescue, and two professionally applied fertilizations to develop a mature fescue lawn. Fungicide Application (When Necessary) Moderate temperatures (between 60 & 85 degrees) with a lot of moisture from rain or a sprinkler system, can cause a variety of fungal problems on Fescue, Zoysia, and Bermuda grasses during the year. Once a fungus problem develops on the lawn, it is much harder to control the damage, especially on fescue grass. If you know that your lawn is susceptible to a fungus problem, we recommend treating the lawn preventatively before the conditions are ideal for the development of the fungus. Spring Dead Spot Treatment (Mid September thru Mid October) Spring Dead Spot is a disease that affects primarily bermuda grass varieties. This disease causes circular dead patches in the lawn that appear after the lawn has greened up in the spring. This disease is active during the fall and winter months destroying the root system of the bermuda grass. A preventative fungicide application must be applied in early fall to gain control of this harmful disease. It may take more than one year of treatment to gain control of this disease. We also recommend aerating the lawn, when we treat with the fungicide, to help the lawn over come soil compaction and thatch.
