There are two types of pre-emergent products available in today's market place. One type stops the germination of crabgrass and foxtail, as well as, other select annual weeds such as spurge. The second type stops the germination of broadleaf weeds such as dandelions. Both products put down a protective barrier to stop the germination of their target weeds. The difference is in the timing of the applications.
With GO GREEN LAWNS LLC, of Louisville, Nebraska you will receive both types of pre-emergents. However, it is important to understand the timing of their application. The first application you will receive as part of your service is the type of pre-emergent that stops grassy annual weeds such as crabgrass. It is important to have this protective barrier down before soil temperature reaches 55 degrees. Crabgrass will not germinate until soil temperature reaches 55 degrees or higher on a consistent basis.. The first application you are scheduled to receive also contains a balanced fertilizer to help green and maintain your lawn. Our crabgrass preventer is applied in several treatments for maximum protection.
On the other hand, dandelions germinate in the Fall and flower (reproduce) in the Spring. The second scheduled application that you will receive this season will eliminate any dandelions that germinated in your lawn last Fall. Air temperature, however, should be 60 degrees or higher to successfully kill most broadleaf weeds. So, you will be receiving your broadleaf weed control this year (2nd application) shortly after they bloom. That is usually around the first of April. Then a broadleaf pre-emergent will be applied this Fall to minimize any new broadleaf weeds such as dandelions appearing in your lawn next Spring.
