Steps 2, 3, 4

Steps 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Steps 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and Core Aerification


Step 1 Early Spring

Fertilizer: A balanced mixture formulated for spring application with a base of slow release, coated nitrogen applied at rates to promote root development, deep green color, and controlled blade growth.

Step 2 Spring

Broadleaf Herbicide: This application is designed to control virtually all emerged broadleaf perennial and annual weeds found in home lawns including dandelions, clover, thistles, and knotweed.
Pre-emergent Crabgrass Control/Fertilizer: This is a balanced mixture formulated for spring application to insure dark green color. This fertilizer controls foxtail, crabgrass, and spurge all season long.

Step 3 Summer

Broadleaf Herbicide (spot treatment): This mid-season application will continue the control stated in Step 2 controlling newly emerged weeds.
Fertilizer: Coated for slow release, this balanced mixture is formulated to provide fertility to dormant turf when water arrives and controlled fertility for irrigated turf.

Step 4 Fall

Broadleaf Herbicide: Broadleaf weed control is applied to control emerged weeds. Best time to control weeds in your lawn for the following year.
Fertilizer: Specially formulated fertilizer is applied to promote growth, color, and spreading. This application also helps prepare the lawn for winter conditions.

Step 5 Late Fall

Fertilizer: Improve winter stress tolerance. Increase rhizome and tiller development directly increasing the number of new grass plants in the lawn next spring. Encourage deeper, stronger roots. Spring green-up will normally occur earlier.
