The New American Lawn
March 2013

This March we are excited to share with you The New American Lawn!  What is The New American Lawn?  This brand new approach to lawn care is a complete and responsible plan to get your lawn back in shape this year.  Many homeowners have been disappointed year after year with their lawns and are ready for a change.  Let's get back to the basics and focus on growing a thick, healthy, beautiful lawn that you can be proud of.  Follow this month's Timely Tips and soon you will be growing The New American Lawn.
Seed First This Spring front yard in spring

It's spring so that means it is time to apply crabgrass control, right?  Not necessarily.  Crabgrass may not begin to germinate until May, so why are we applying control products now?  The latest technology in our Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up Lawn Fertilizer controls crabgrass before AND after it germinates.  With that in mind, let's delay applying crabgrass controls until late spring.  Remember the best defense against weeds in your lawn is to have a thick, healthy lawn which will crowd out those pesky weeds. 

This spring seed your lawn first.  We often say that your lawn will never be better than the grass seed you use.  If you choose to seed with poor quality grass seed your lawn will have poor results.  The New American Lawn plan uses genetically superior lawn grasses such as what are found in our Black Beauty grass seed mixtures.  This first step is critically important in order to insure your success.

Have you thought about the soil?

The soil is the foundation of the lawn.  To have a healthy lawn you have to have a healthy, biologically active soil.  This is actually not that hard to do.  When you seed this spring apply Mag-I-Cal Calcium Fertilizer and our new Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil.  Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil is an all natural and organic way to stimulate soil microbes and make the soil more porous.  When the soil is more porous the grass roots are able to go deeper into the ground and retrieve more water and nutrients.  Using this method along with our organic and traditional lawn fertilizers you can create a healthy lawn soil environment in which your lawn grasses can thrive.  Want to know more?
