It’s hard to believe that just two weeks ago we woke up to all white lawns, not all green lawns.
Fortunately, the 24 degree low on April 15 only zapped a few magnolias and caused some temporary yellowing of the turf. Some grass varieties were affected more than others.
Due to the extended winter and the little surprise we had a few weeks ago, we are a little behind schedule, but so is crabgrass germination.
According to GDDTracker.com, crabgrass germination in our zip code will be 2 weeks behind the 2013 date. As always Buckeye Ecocare guarantees crabgrass control for all full time customers!
May is a Gorgeous Month Here in Southern Ohio
The lawns are all greening, landscapes are in full bloom and the trees are beginning to leaf out and provide much needed shade for the hot months ahead.
Getting the Best of Broadleaf Weeds
Regular maintenance goes a long way
Dandelions, chickweed, ground ivy, henbit, knotweed, spurge…all sorts of broadleaf weeds will soon be making an appearance. It would be great if we could eliminate these pests once and for all. The thing is, they creat a lot of seeds, so complete elimination is not possible.
Just one dandelion seed head can hold over 200 seeds, which are capable of traveling very long distances by wind, water or on the bottom of shoes. New weed seeds are constantly finding their way into the soil on your property, and they can remain in the soil for years until they get enough sunlight and water to germinate.
