Each round provides a step-by-step guide to keeping lawns healthy all year.
Pre-Emergent Crabgrass Prevention
Applying a granular fertilizer promotes a spring green-up and helps lawns recover from winter damage. A fertilizer with a pre-emergent herbicide is recommended to prevent annual summer weeds like crabgrass.
Application of the pre-emergent is weather dependent and the timing is essential. Be careful not to apply too early so it will still be effective in approx. 14-16 weeks (depending on rainfall). Peak crabgrass germination season is around July 1 depending on weather in the Upper Midwest Region. Consult with your local Russo Plant Health Care Specialist for recommended application dates for your area.
Note: Preemergent fertilizer products do not prevent spring dandelions and putting weed & feed down early does not stop spring dandelions.
