Now is the perfect time to plan your spring lawn care program. Even if there is snow on the ground you can map out what you may need to do to have success this spring. Many lawns will have bare spots once the snow melts and will need to be repaired. This spring seed your lawn first and apply Lime or Jonathan Green Mag-I-Cal the same day. Establishing a thick, healthy lawn is your best defense against weeds and other lawn problems. Have you taken a soil test recently? If your lawn has had problems in the past consider taking a soil test this spring. Unbalanced soil pH is the root of many lawn problems.

Controlling crabgrass in your lawn
Crabgrass was a huge problem this past year for many homeowners. With last year's warm spring and dry summer the crabgrass took over. This spring we would recommend seeding first before treating for any weeds. When there is a thick lawn there is less room for weeds to establish. Once you have mowed the new grass three times apply a Crabgrass Preventer plus Fertilizer in the late spring. This product will control crabgrass both before and after it germinates.
