Our Minnesota Turf Care Fertilizing and Weed Control Application Program and Schedule
1 – Early Spring – apply a granular fertilizer with pre-emergent to prevent weeds from germinating combined a slow release nitrogen to jumpstart the grass growth and increase the “green up” speed. Most pre-emergents must be applied before the soil temperature reaches 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit, but our pre-emergent does not. We use a higher quality product that works at any ground temps to stop weed germination.
2 – Late Spring – apply a liquid fertilizer along with a crabgrass pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicide. The fertilizer helps green and thicken the lawn, while the herbicide kills crabgrass and broadleaf weeds.
3 – Early Summer – gives your turf the nutrients it needs to stand up to the upcoming hot summer months by applying a slow release nitrogen and potash fertilizer. We also apply a broad spectrum herbicide to kill any sprouting weeds in the lawn such as pesky dandelions and other broadleaf weeds.
4 – Mid-Summer – apply a slow release granular fertilizer to help strengthen the root structure of your grass for the hot and humid summer days. It also includes micro nutrients slow release nitrogen and potash. These nutrients help the roots dive deep for the water they need and keeps your lawn green!
5 – Early Fall – apply a liquid application that has nitrogen, potash, and other micro nutrients. At this same time we apply a broad leaf herbicide to kill broadleaf weeds. By getting rid of them during this application this sets up your lawn to be as close to weed free as possible the following spring.
6 – Late Fall – apply a long lasting slow release fertilizer. This gives the grass the nutrients it needs to prepare for going into hibernation for the next 5-6 months and ensures your soil possesses the nutrients needed for greening up your lawn come spring.
