Beat Broadleaf Weeds this Spring
May 2013

Broadleaf weeds can quickly take over a beautiful lawn and deprive the grass of the nutrients that it needs.  The key to successful broadleaf weed control is knowing the right products and tactics to use.  The control product must adhere to the surface of the weed leaf in order to be effective.  This means the weed leaf should be damp prior to application for maximum control.  Applying your broadleaf weed control early in the morning when the grass is covered in dew or after lightly irrigating the lawn will have the best effects.  Follow this month's edition of Timely Tips for even more insight into how to handle weeds in your lawn this spring.
Defend against Dandelions

The dandelions have suddenly popped up everywhere!  If dandelions are invading your lawn you want to control them quickly and effectively.  Jonathan Green Lawn Weed Control will eliminate over 200 broadleaf weeds including dandelions, clover, chickweed and much more!  This incredible product does not contain fertilizer so you do not risk over fertilizing the lawn when using it. It needs to be applied when the weeds are actively growing to damp leaves so that it can cling to them.  Check out the video below for more information:

Can't forget about the crabgrass

Have you heard that as soon as the forsythia are in bloom you need to apply crabgrass preventer?  That advice is now outdated.  Crabgrass can start germinating in early spring if it is warm enough and continue through August.  Many products use older technology and required you to apply crabgrass control earlier to prevent the weeds from germinating.  The newer technology of Jonathan Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up Lawn Fertilizer allows you to apply the product before AND after crabgrass germinates and still be effective.  Our control contains Dimension which is odorless and colorless, which means less mess for you.  Plus when you apply our Crabgrass Preventer now you will extend your barrier of control through the summertime which is when the crabgrass is actually growing.  Did you know crabgrass does not grow in the shade?  So save yourself time, money and the environment by only applying it where needed.  Check out this helpful video to learn more:
