March 2012
Greetings Lawn Enthusiast,

Spring has arrived early in many parts of the country.  We have seen unusually warm weather this winter.  March 20th is the official start of spring but now is the time to start your lawn program for 2012.  Here are this month's Timely Tips with suggestions for your lawn in March.

Seeding this spring

soilThe air may be warmer in March but soil temperatures could still be around 40 degrees. Optimum soil temperature for grass seed to germinate is 50-55 degrees. Do not be unrealistic when you seed this spring. Grass will begin to grow once the soil is warm enough. It may take 8-10 weeks before a lawn is completely filled in depending on the weather. Apply Jonathan Green Green-Mulch Seed Establishment Mulch to help prevent erosion and soil temperature fluctuations. Seeding mulch will also help deter birds from eating the grass seed.

Controlling weeds in your lawn

As the temperature begins to rise the weeds start to appear. If you do have crabgrass and are seeding this spring try Jonathan Green Crabgrass Preventer plus New Seeding Fertilizer. This will feed your lawn and control crabgrass without killing the new seedlings.  If you are not seeding this spring apply Jonathan Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Green-Up to control crabgrass effectively both before and after it germinates. Looking for an organic weed control? Try Jonathan Green Organic Weed Control plus Fertilizer with corn gluten which controls broadleaf weeds like dandelions. This product must be applied before weeds emerge and do not seed with it.

Could your lawn use some magic?

Your soil is the foundation of a strong, healthy lawn. If you have experienced weeds or have bare spots you could have poor soil. This spring apply Mag-I-Cal to your soil to balance the pH and release trapped nutrients that feed your lawn. Mag-I-Cal is a form of highly soluble calcium that is safe and easy to use. You can use it on your lawn, in your flower beds and in your garden.
