Minneapolis Fertilization and Landscaping Experts Urge Minnesotans to Get an Early Jump on Crabgrass
Minneapolis, MN based landscaping company KG Landscape Management urges its clients to get an early jump on crabgrass this season - before it's too late!
- (1888PressRelease) April 22, 2011 - Minneapolis, MN When left untreated, crabgrass wreaks havoc on a would-be beautiful lush green Minnesota lawn. The landscaping team at KG Landscape Management ( http://www.kglandscape.com ) stresses the importance of treating crab grass early in the season.
Kent Gliadon, President at KG Landscape Management informs clients, "It is essential to treat your lawn for crabgrass early in the season before the soil reaches 55 degrees. In Minnesota, crabgrass friendly temps can happen late April or May. Since crabgrass is a warm-season grass, it dies off each year. Essentially, you have a fresh start to take control of crabgrass before it starts!"
Here are a few tips for controlling crabgrass in your lawn:
- Avoid cutting your lawn too short. This is one of the most common causes of crabgrass. This happens because crabgrass thrives on sunlight and moisture. A thin lawn leaves an opening for crabgrass to get the sunlight and moisture it needs to thrive. Cut your lawn between 2 and ½ to 3 inches.
- Treat crabgrass early
- Avoid over-watering your lawn
To control crabgrass, fertilizers must be applied early in the season before the crabgrass has time to germinate. Herbicides and fertilizers effectively treat crabgrass and other weedy grasses by preventing germination. KG Landscape Management uses specially formulated fertilizers to keep your lawn free of crabgrass and weeds - ensuring a beautifully green lawn all season long.
