Need Spring Seeding?
Yes last year was quite the epic drought - lets hope for no repeat this year.  Fall is the best time to seed;
Unfortunately maybe you did not get your seeding done last fall.  Spring is not a great time to see, but...

If you choose to seed in the spring, there could be some desiccation of young plants
Heading into summer, as well as competition with crabgrass and weeds, and possible
Need for some fall seeding as well. Most normal pre-emergent crabgrass and weed
Controls applied in the spring also stop new grass seed from growing. Proper mowing, watering and maintenance can help your turf fill in on its own.  Please bare that
In mind as you decide which direction To go.

The options for spring seeding:
1. Seed early and delay application of pre-emergent crabgrass control
Until late may/early june or once new seeds are up and mown.
2. Apply pre-emergent as usual on schedule- and after that- apply loam and seed
On only the areas you deem necessary on lawn.
3. Apply pre-emergent as usual on schedule- water in several times to set herbicide-
Then after that- core aerate lawn couple times  and overseed or slit seed. The idea here is to penetrate the soil profile and pre-emergent herbicide, and allow the seed to germinate in the holes /disrupted soil.

These are your best options, short of sodding. You may get some amount of crabgrass and weeds
but it should not be over -whelming but expected. There are some specialty herbicides that
Can be applied to help prevent crabgrass and weeds and still allow seeding, but please note these
Type products are expensive and are only an aid-not nearly 100% control. Also please be aware you will want to be watering new seeds at least 2x a day to establish.

 If you choose to do spring seeding, please notify us ASAP, so me may properly schedule your treatments. Thankyou! jbturf@comcast.net

ITS BEEN A LONG HARD WINTER, AND SPRING IS FINALLY AROUND THE CORNER!  AS THE SNOW COVER SLOWLY MELTS AWAY, THERE MAY BE A FEW SURPRISES LEFT BEHIND. 

 YOU MAY SEE SOME UNSIGHTLY DAMAGE FROM

  • SNOW PLOWING AND REMOVAL
  • SALT AND CHEMICAL ICE MELT
  • SNOW MOLD LAWN DISEASE
  • WINTER KILL TO TURF PLANTS

JBTURF RECOMMEND THAT YOU REMOVE DEBRIS THEN RAKE OUT OR DETHATCH YOUR LAWN ASAP.  THIS WILL HELP BREAK UP MATTED DOWN AREAS, AND ALLOW AIR INTO THE THATCH AND ROOT ZONE. WE RECOMMEND A GYPSUM APPLICATION FOR SALT OR PET DAMAGED TURF.  AS TEMPERATURES RISE AND THE TURF IS FERTILIZED, YOU WILL LIKELY SEE SOME REGROWTH IN THESE DAMAGED AREAS.  IF DEEMED NECESSARY, THE TURF MAY NEED TO BE RESEEDED. THOUGH FALL IS THE BEST TIME FOR RESEEDING, SEVERE DAMAGE MAY NEED TO BE SEEDED RIGHT AWAY.
