Pre-Emergent Lawn Treatments

Pre-emergent treatment is a weed control service that kills weeds before their emergence. When done right and early, especially in late fall, pre-emergent treatment can help control spring weeds. The treatment stops weed seeds before they germinate.

Crabgrass, for instance, starts to develop roots at around 50 degrees, which can be anytime in January or early February in North Carolina. Chances are you won’t be concerned with yard work then. Therefore, it’s best to do it to protect your spring grass.

The timing of applying pre-emergent treatment is very critical to its effectiveness. Strategic timing is required to control weeds in your lawn before their emergence. Late fall or early winter is perfectly fine for the procedure.

In the interview, Pete advised on how to properly perk up your yard this spring.

Weather Channel Interviews Grassroots

Pete Henrikson, who was recently interviewed on the Weather Channel, gave professional advice on how to better care for the lawns as more people spend time outside in their yard enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. Since 2002, Pete and his team of passionate lawn care experts have worked hard to earn their reputation in the lawn care industry, coupled with their passion for excellent customer service.

Excerpts from the interview are:

What should people be doing or looking for to tackle weed control?  

For all lawns across the United States, springtime is a great time to put down a pre-emergent herbicide. This will help the lawns reduce weed pressure into those hot summer months.

While in the South, and up along the Atlantic Coast, it's a great time to get those early spring weeds cleaned up with a post-emergent herbicide. Then start to feed the lawn as it enters the strong-growing season with a well-balanced nitrogen-rich fertilizer to get it greened up and looking great.


What should we be doing about the trees and shrubs?

The message is simple. Homeowners should start with an inventory of the trees and shrubs they have on their property and make sure to trim their plants at the right time of year. Many of the shrubs in your yard can be trimmed in the springtime. Some of them needed to be trimmed in the fall. Ensure you’re trimming them at the right time of the year so you won’t be trimming off the flowering buds, or any of the new shoots.

Also, it is a great time to fertilize the trees and shrubs to give them the nutrition they need to bloom beautifully in the springtime. It gives them the ability to grow the heavy branches and leaves and get them healthy, as the weather warms up, and the heavy rains come.

Rounding off the interview, Pete commented on the need to ensure a safer environment. “As professionals, and also as homeowners, we need to take responsibility to ensure we know what we're putting down in our lawns and think about the ecological systems that we're working within. We need to think about Mother Nature first, and do our part. One house at a time makes a huge difference across the United States.”
