New: 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control

pre emergent weed control

Weeds can be a significant eyesore of home lawns. Weeds lessen your grasses’ natural beauty due to differences in color, size, shape, and growth habit. Not to mention weeds compete with your turfgrasses for sunlight, soil moisture, nutrients, space and can quickly become the dominant species in a lawn. That’s why our lawn care professionals have come up with a solution to eliminating those weeds from germinating with our 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control Process.

New for 2021, our lawn care technicians will be servicing your lawn with a 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control process versus our previous 2-Step process. Using these 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control process will give your yard a solid weed barrier for 4-6 months. This time frame is ideal because it will be time for aeration and overseeding and allow proper growth for new seedlings once the barrier length ends.

Let’s break down our 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control Process:

Step 1:

This first step is part of a two-step application because the first two applications will be applied at half rate applications. This means that we will be splitting the application rate in half and making two passes over the treatment area.

Product Used: Granular Prodiamine and Fertilizer Application

The first round of Prodiamine application will be applied, weather depending, as soil temperatures reach 55 degrees. Peak soil temperature for weed germination is around 75-80 degrees. But, applying around 55 degrees will proactively stop weed germination.

Step 2:

Product Used: Granular Prodiamine and Fertilizer Application

The second application of the half rate of Prodiamine and fertilizer, weather depending, will be applied at 3-4 weeks after the first half rate round. This application will carry an additional two months of protection so that there are no product gaps in the soil. Prodiamine is an excellent barrier for stopping crabgrass, goosegrass, broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, white clover, thistle, spurge, and false dandelions.

Step 3:

Products Used: Dimension and Fertilizer Application

The third application that will be applied is Dimension and fertilizer application. This application works great as both a pre-emergent and post-emergent.  If any goose, crabgrass, or broadleaf weeds have started to germinate, they will be killed after applying.

What Makes This 3-Step Pre-Emergent Weed Control Process Different?

The majority of our competitors will only use one large app of pre-emergent. This one application can eliminate weeds but can cause root shrinkage in the lawn’s grass. This one application results in stunting the lawn in the summer months. Applying the two split applications of Prodiamine and fertilizer will not cause root shrinkage to established lawns, leading to a healthier lawn year-round.
