Unsure if your Bermuda or zoysia lawn needs fall lawn care in Newnan, Georgia? Many homeowners think the arrival of fall means less lawn maintenance since the “growing season” is coming to an end. However, fall is actually the most ideal time to prep your lawn for the following spring, since temperatures are cooler and rainfall is occasional. During this time your lawn is preparing for dormancy by absorbing energy, nutrients, and moisture making it the perfect time to apply pre-emergence herbicides. Pre-emergence herbicides are used to prevent weed seeds from germinating and competing with your desired turf stand. When applied correctly and watered in, the pre-emergent creates a barrier in the top layer of the soil. Remember, timing is everything when it comes to fall pre-emergence. When applied correctly and at the appropriate time, you will be rewarded next spring with a lush, vibrant lawn! Call Nature’s Turf today for a lush, weed free turf stand next spring!
