Turf Treatment is recommended in the early spring to give you a green, weed free lawn all summer long. Kohler Lawn & Outdoor provides lawn care for homeowners and businesses in Pleasant Hill, MO and the Kansas City metro area including Cass, Jackson and Johnson Counties.
Turf Treatment programs include weedkillers (herbicides) to kill broadleaf weeds like dandelions and other grass-like weeds such as crabgrass. They also include pre-emergent. Pre-emergent is a weed killer applied prior to germination of the weed seed. TheSpruce.com shares that, “Crabgrass can be treated with pre-emergence herbicides in the spring, which will keep the seeds from sprouting, or they can be treated with post-emergent herbicides as the weeds are noticed, beginning in spring. ”An advantage of pre-emergent is that they can prevent mid and late summer weeds before they even appear.
Our turf treatment program includes at least six visits throughout the year and typically include:
Round #1 | Early Spring Treatment | Late Feb – Early April
1st Round of pre-emergent controls crabgrass, foxtail. Includes balanced rate of granular fertilizer.
Round #2 | Late Spring Treatment | Early April – Late May
