When people call in the spring and say that they have crabgrass growing in their lawns already, you can be skeptical. Crabgrass is rarely seen here until June. In April, you may find skeletons of old crabgrass plants that have died over the winter. Often the dead grass disintegrates and disappears. Especially in front yards where they get walked on or shoveled with the snow.
Here are some photos of some crabgrass skeletons from a backyard.
A good lawn care program can give you a better looking lawn when a lot of other lawns are still rubbing their eyes after the long winter nap.
This is a lawn that was fertilized late October last year. Notice how much greener it is than the neighbouring lawns at the beginning of April after a long hard winter.
With Turf King's slow release fortified organic fertilizer, the lawn can absorb nutrients even when it looks like there is little activity. Those important nutrients are stored in the roots and are ready for action early in the spring.
On lawns with a late season fertilizer application, warmer weather in the spring lets those lawns start the green-up process much sooner than lawns that are not as nutritionally stable.
Call Turf King to book your lawn care program and make sure to include the winter fertilizer in your lawn package.
