Lawn Product Discussions

 

What these products do for your lawn:

 

Fertilizer: Feeds the lawn with nutrients needed to keep it healthy and growing properly. Different formulas are needed for different seasons. Quick release fertilizers like DR. Q’s® WINTER GEM‘ or Best Nitra King® for cold weather; balanced high-iron fertilizers like DR. Q’s® TRIPLE PLAY for hot weather; complete fertilizers like Best Turf Supreme® for periods of maximum growth activity in spring and fall; continuous release fertilizers like DR. Q’s® ROYAL FLUSH‘ for uniform growth in spring, summer or fall.

 

Pre-emergent: Kills seeds before they sprout into weeds but does not kill existing weeds. These products do an outstanding job of preventing broadleaf lawn weeds and suppressing most grassy weeds as well. Dimension® is the active ingredient in most combination weed prevention & fertilizer products. It is used alone in large-scale lawn and agricultural projects.

 

Weed Control: Kill existing weeds with Weed & Feed while feeding the lawn at the same time. It has no effect on seeds that have not yet germinated. Refrain from using most weed killing products on lawns in temperatures above 85 degrees or grass injury may result. Liquid weed Killers like Bayer All-In-One Weed Killer for Lawns or Ortho Weed-B-Gon® can be used to spot kill weeds in higher temperatures with little or no injury to grass, if done carefully.

 

Pest Control:Choose from one of our readily available granulated or liquid insect killer or grub killer/control products to kill lawn pests such as grubs, sod webworms, cinch bugs and ants that damage turn or irritate people and pets.

 

Fungus Control: Broad Spectrum granular and liquid fungicides are easy to use and very effective against many kinds of lawn fungi. Help prevent fungus infection by watering and fertilizing correctly.

 

Aerating: Opens the lawns to allow better water and nutrient penetration; helps air and fertilizer circulate properly in the soil. Con-GroTM helps break down heavy clay soil and improves drainage.

 

Re-seed existing fescue lawns with DR. Q’s Emerald Carpet® dwarf fescue for less mowing and watering. This seed is your best choice for Seeding New Lawns as well. Other fescue varieties for use include Barenbrug Rebel and Kentucky Tall (K-31). Annual or perennial rye seed like Fairway Blend® will provide good over-seeding of Bermuda lawns for green grass in winter. The rye dies out in hot weather when the Bermuda greens up again. Dense Shade® Mixture will provide good coverage in shady areas.
