The weather is showing signs of change. The snow is melting and the temperatures are starting to creep above freezing, into the 40’s and 50’s. Soon your lawn will wake up from hibernation and it will be hungry. Very hungry. And moreover, there will be new weed seeds, spread from the previous autumn, just waiting to germinate and take over your yard. So that’s why we’ll begin our first round of applications very soon.
Most yards are free from snow, but there are a few patches of snow in shady areas or where the snow was piled particularly high. As those patches melt off, we’ll be descending onto Indianapolis-area lawns within the next 7-10 days. And when we do you may notice a new vehicle parked in the street outside your home. This year we are proud to roll out 7 new Lawn Pride vans. Each van is fully self-contained and can handle all your lawn treatment needs. Give us a wave the next time you see one out and about.
Fight weeds, feed grass.
Our first application is formulated to feed the grass and ward off weeds. With a nutrient rich, balanced fertilizer and a pre-emergent herbicide we cover your lawn with everything it needs to wake up and start growing. Keep in mind that weed control is an on-going effort and you may not see immediate results. Any weed control product can take up to 10 days before you see results, so if after your first application you still see weeds, just give the treatment a few days to take effect.
We’ll discuss each application in more detail over the coming days and weeks, so stay tuned. And as always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us directly.
