This is What We’re Doing in Your Lawn in Spring

A little over a month out from our record-breaking February freeze, most of our lawns are in what we call a tweener stage. There is a little green here and there in some lawns, but most are not out of dormancy yet. Probably only 20% to 30% in our area. That will change over the next few weeks, and we should start seeing the majority of our lawns green up nicely.

Our fertilization and weed control plan is not a one-size-fits-all program, so our application is customized specifically for your lawn. That means we pay attention to the conditions and do what will be best for the long-term health of your lawn.

Bermuda lawns will get treated with a good nitrogen fertilizer, pushing the grass to green up quicker.

St. Augustine lawns get the opposite treatment. A tropical plant, St. Augustine, is typically stressed after our winter months, so we apply a 5-10-31 ratio fertilizer which pushes root growth over top growth. If we pushed top growth to green up the lawn faster, we would be doing the lawn more harm than good in the long run. Root health is vital during these treatments and will pay off in a lush lawn later this year.

We are also putting out a pre-emergent on most of our lawns to help prevent spring and summer weeds. If the lawn is stressed, we will forgo the pre-emergent and apply a root stimulating fertilizer that will help the plant green up a little bit now but is really about long-term root health, which will produce a fuller, greener lawn later on this year.
