Greetings Lawn Enthusiast,

If you had dandelions last year it is a good chance you are seeing them again in your lawn this year.  There are several steps you can take to control weeds now.  With the warm weather on its way ticks are going to become a problem too.  Remember the best defense against weeds and lawn pests is to have a strong, healthy lawn.  Here are this month's timely tips for the month of May.

Dandelions are daunting!

Do you have dandelions in your lawn?  Dandelions are one of the most common weeds that homeowners deal with in the spring.  The seeds are easily carried by the wind and then germinate in different areas of your lawn.  To control dandelions apply Jonathan Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer.  Weed & Feed will eliminate even large mature dandelions and over 250 other broadleaf and vining weeds.  If you have already fertilized this spring and still need weed control apply Jonathan Green Lawn Weed Control.  This product does not contain fertilizer and provides control for dandelions, clover, chickweed and over 200 weeds.  It is important that these products are applied to a damp lawn so that they stick to the weed surface.  Do not water or irrigate your lawn for 48 hours after applying.

Work some magic in your lawn

Weeds will persist in soils with a lower pH level.  The optimum pH level for growing grass is between a 6.0 to 6.8.  Not sure what the pH level of your soil is?  Take a Soil pH Test today to determine if your soil pH needs to be corrected.  Apply Mag-I-Cal Calcium Fertilizer to balance your soil and release trapped nutrients in the soil.  Mag-I-Cal is a soluble form of calcium that is pelletized, easy to apply and is not dusty like lime.  It is much easier to apply than lime when a 22.5 pound bag is the equivalent of five bags magic hatof lime.  Mag-I-Cal can be used anywhere in your lawn even in the garden and can be applied in conjunction with any of our products.

Trouble with Ticks

Now is the perfect time to start your tick program.  Ticks pose a health risk especially to children and pets who play on the lawn.  Be sure to clear out low brush, vines and leaf debris each year.  Keep a well-manicured border with any woods and your lawn by installing a mulch, wood chip or gravel barrier.  Use Jonathan Green Lawn Insect Control or Jonathan Green Pest Kill to control ticks.  Both of these products control ticks, fleas, ants and over thirty other pests.  Repeat your applications monthly during the summer.
