Proper Landscape Maintenance Begins With Early and Effective Planning

Effective landscape management starts long before the spring season starts. You’ll want to make sure you have a proper turf plan in place before it’s too late. Now is the time to plan for fertilization and weed control for the coming season. This is why Landworks Inc. is here to help by offering some useful tips and questions to ask yourself concerning your landscape management plan.


When Do I Apply Chemicals?

In cooler climates, it is best to apply a pre-emergent herbicide in spring and fall. Reapplication of these chemicals in the spring will help reduce the number of weeds you have to deal with in the summer. Fall application targets weeds that can grow through the winter. A professional lawn care company can reduce the stress of this process by keeping track of this schedule for you.

How Much Do I Apply?

The amount of fertilizer and weed control needed varies based on the size of your lawn. Always apply recommended amount of fertilizer per the manufacturers specifications. You can find this information on the materials packaging, or if you are using a professional lawn care company, they will use the proper ratio for your yard. Your professional lawn care company will provide you with their standard application information upon request.

Landworks certified chemical applicators can handle these aspects of landscape maintenance and will know the proper application rates and time of year to apply the chemicals as well as proper disposal methods.
