There are only a few things to cover for the spring Bermuda lawn checklist. A critical part is having the right products in stock, at the right times. Nothings worse than needing to do a spring lawn treatment and not being able to the needed products.
Tip #1 – Make sure your pre-emergent is down when soil temps are constantly in that 52 degree temp zone.
Tip #2 – Think ahead and order products before they sell out. Early bird gets the worm in spring lawn care.
Tip #3 – Watch the fertilizer video and understand the WINDOWS we talk about.
Tip #4 – Use ORGANIC FERTILIZERS later in the season when soil temps warm up.
Tip #5 – Scalp your lawn when the soil dries out so you don’t create RUT marks.
Tip#6 – Be prepared for army worms.
To achieve the greatest efficiency, use low application rates (0.1-pound nitrogen per 1,000 square feet); wait several hours to maximize foliar uptake, and then water-in, washing any unabsorbed nitrogen remaining on leaf surfaces into the soil for uptake by the roots. With the range of results reported for the studies conducted in Arkansas and Illinois, further research on the environmental and application factors that affect foliar nitrogen uptake would be valuable.
