Successful Spring Lawn Care
April 2013

Spring is (finally) here!  Hopefully all of the bad weather is past and you can get down to business and start caring for your lawn.  Most lawns suffered damage over the winter months and will be in need of repair this spring.  Follow our New American Lawn plan and Timely Tips this month and soon you will be growing a lawn that will make all of your neighbors jealous. 
Going Crazy about Crabgrass

The biggest problem many lawns suffer from in the spring is crabgrass.  It quickly takes over a good lawn and we become frustrated and start looking for answers.  If you have been following our New American Lawn plan you know that the best defense against weeds is to have a thick, healthy lawn.  Seed your lawn first this spring with one of our superior Black Beauty grass seed varieties.  Later in spring, after you have mowed the new grass 2-3 times apply our Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up Lawn Fertilizer.  It controls crabgrass before and after it germinates so you will have better chance of having season long control.  Did you know crabgrass does not grow in the shade?  So save yourself some time and money and only apply it where needed.  Check out this helpful video to learn more:

Love your lawn?  Then love your soil!

We all want a beautiful lawn and one of the key components of the lawn is often overlooked - the soil!  Traditional lawn care methods deplete the soil of important nutrients your lawn needs to be successful.  This spring give your soil what it needs with Mag-I-Cal Calcium Fertilizer and our new Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil.  This organic dynamic duo will rapidly raise your soil pH and make the soil more alive and porous.  Apply these all natural, organic products to your lawn the same day you seed and you will see the difference in your lawn.  Want to learn more?  Check out this helpful video:
