The Hometown Lawn Custom Annual Lawn Fertilizer Program

STEP 1   Late Winter / Early Spring  13-0-0 Pre-Emergent – Product Label – Lesco Calibration Gauge = 15

Professional, slow-release fertilizer plus crabgrass pre-emergent. A barrier is created at soil level, controlling weeds before they appear. **For fall reseeded or dormant seeded lawns, please be sure to inform us, this product is not recommended to be applied within 12 weeks of seeding.

Tips for Improved Control
For best results, apply this product within a few days after mowing and delay mowing again for a few days after the application. When treated lawn or ornamental turf areas are watered or receive significant rainfall within a few days after application of this product, improved weed control may result.

STEP 2*   Mid-Spring   19-0-0 Pre-Emergent Product Label – Lesco Calibration Gauge = 15

This application occurs concurrent with Step 3. Step 2, like Step 1, is a professional, slow-release fertilizer plus crabgrass pre-emergent granular that delivers more nitrogen while continuing crabgrass protection throughout the summer. A vapor barrier is created at soil level, controlling weeds before they appear. We apply Steps 2 & 3 on dry, low-wind days when temperatures are above 65°.  Do not mow for 48 hours after this application or water within 2 hours.

This step is a selective liquid herbicide for control of broadleaf weeds (Ref: K-State) such as Dandelions, Clover, Henbit, Creeping Charlie and others.

STEP 4   Summer – Grub Control plus Nitrogen – Product Label – Lesco Calibration Gauge = 15

Professional, grub control helps control grubs at the appropriate time in their life-cycle. The actual application period is dependent upon real weather conditions occurring. For optimum performance this application must be done under certain circumstances that we will determine unique to every year.

STEP 5   Fall – 18-24-12 Starter Fertilizer – Product Label – Lesco Calibration Gauge = 15

Professional, slow-release nitrogen fertilizer helps turf recover from summer stress. This application includes something from each of the “Big-Three”. N-P-K, Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. Nitrogen supplements growth and color. Phosphorus stimulates root growth and Potassium enhances disease resistance. This is a vital step to overall turf health. For lawns that are doing a Fall verticut and overseed, this step can be repeated approximately 21-28 days after seeding for optimum results.
