Early Summer Tip Sheet

Materials Applied

  • Nitrogen: Promotes fast green-up
  • Potash: Builds plant tissue
  • Weed Control: Works to weeds at their early stages when weather conditions permit

Lawn Tips

  • Cut your lawn weekly and no shorter than 3 inches. Cutting too short or cutting too much of the grass plant can shock the plant and retard its thickening for 6-8 weeks.
  • Water your lawn in each location for 2 hours because roots grow towards each water. Deep watering on a regular basis will build a deeper root system.
  • Some weeds die with the first application of weed control, others require many applications before they die. We can only control weeds actively growing at the time of the application. If weeds develop thereafter, see our weed control info on the invoice.

A Healthy Lawn is in Your Best Interest, Here's 4 Reasons Why

  • Cooling: The front lawns of a block of 8 average houses have the cooling effect of about 70 tons of air conditioning - enough to cool 16 average homes. On a hot summer day, grass can be 10+ degrees cooler than exposed soil and as much as 30 degrees cooler than concrete or asphalt.
  • Noise Reduction: While your lawn is busy performing all of these functions, you may not have noticed...it's very quiet and has no moving parts! Good turf can absorb sound better than heavy carpet.
  • Soil Quality: A healthy lawn prevents erosion by water or wind and the loss of valuable top soil; less mud and dust in the house.
  • Asthetics: There can be no argument that a beautiful lawn is immediately pleasing to the eye and relaxing in its appearance. Lawns help to soften and reduce reflected light-less glare.



Commonly Asked Questions & Answers

I have wide bladed grass in my lawn. Is this crabgrass?

No. Crabgrass germinates approximately the last week of June (if our pre-emergent product did not work). Crabgrass grows in wide-spreading clumps and is lime green in color.

Why is my lawn posted?

Wisconsin Uniform Posting Law requires posting of four sides of your property if over 2,000 square feet. Please Remove at Sunset the Following Day AFTER the Application.

How long should I wait before putting my pet out?

Recommendations from our distributor suggest that you allow the grass to dry approximately 2 hours before walking on or putting your pets out.

Are ants a problem to the lawn?

Because they do not actively feed on your lawn and are very mobile, we do not treat for them. We do recommend using a granular ant control on any hills as they develop.

Should I be concerned about fertilizer pellets in my flower or shrubbery beds?

No. Fertilizer is beneficial for all plant material.
