Beat the Weeds, Apply Spring Pre-Emergents Now
It’s time to start thinking about pre-emergents for your yard with Spring blooming right around the corner. And, so are the weeds. You have a 6-week window to apply pre-emergents, from around mid-January/first of February (as long as the weather stays relatively warm) to the middle of March. Do you know what the 3 factors are that determine when a seed will germinate? They are soil temperature, moisture, and sunlight. The pre-emergent must be applied and active BEFORE that magic moment of germination occurs.
The all-natural pre-emergent is Corn Gluten Meal. It is available in both granulated and powder form and it is applied at a rate of 20 pounds per 1,000 square feet.
Synthetic pre-emergents are Dimension for the grassy weeds and Gallery for the broadleaf weeds. The key to success with these products is to apply the correct amount to your lawn. Follow the label directions and know the square footage of your lawn. Dimension pre-emergent treats 4,000 square feet for $12.99, and 10,000 square feet for $35.99/bag, treating both grassy and broadleaf weed seeds.
Dimension pre-emergent treats 4,000 square feet for $12.99, and 10,000 square feet for $35.99/bag, treating both grassy and broadleaf weed seeds.
Gallery pre-emergent treats 2,000 square feet for $22.99. It’s a great product for broadleaf weeds, especially dandelions.
