How to maintain a healthy, happy lawn

LAWN MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

May 1 to June 15

If there are no broadleaf weeds present, use Shaw's 30-0-6 with 50% XRT. This product provides a slow release feeding, thus giving the turf a dark green color for 8 to 10 weeks. If there are broadleaf weeds present, then use Shaw's 15-0-5 Weed & Feed with VIPER. If weed control only is desired, use Trimec Granules. Apply when the turfgrass is moist and when the daytime temperature is close to 70-80 degrees. Be sure to apply when there is no threat of rainfall for 48 hours. It is advisable not to mow for 2 days after the application.

May 15 to June 30

If grubworms have been a problem in previous years, you can apply an insecticide such as MERIT for season long control (21-0-4 w/ MERIT)

June 15 to August 15

Avoid fertilizing the lawn unless there is ample irrigation. If there is an automatic irrigation system, then use Shaw's 30-0-6 with 50% XRT at 1/2 the rate of application.

August 15 to October 15

If there are no broadleaf weeds present, use Shaw's 30-0-6 with  50% XRT. This product provides a slow release feeding, thus giving the turf a dark green color for 8-10 weeks. If there are broadleaf weeds present, then use Shaw's 15-0-5 Weed & Feed with VIPER. If weed control only is desired, use Trimec Granules. Apply when the turfgrass is moist and when the daytime temperature is close to 70-80 degrees. Be sure to apply when there is no threat of rainfall for 48 hours. It is advisable not to mow for 2 days after the application. This may lessen or eliminate the need for next spring's weed control.

October 15 to December 1 (or after last mowing)

Use Shaw's 30-10-10 Starter & Winterizer or Shaw's 30-0-6 with 50% XRT to feed the turfgrass. These products will encourage stronger deeper rooting and will develop necessary carbohydrate reserves for the turfgrass plant to survive the winter.

 

Throughout the season, when establishing seeding and sodded turf areas, use 14-25-10 Starter. This product promotes quicker rooting for the turfgrasss plants to survive the new site.
