Treatment seven

October 15 - November 20

A broadcast spray containing a pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicide will be applied. The pre-emerge will focus on preventing broadleaf weeds during the early spring. The post-emerge portion will help remove any weeds visible and any poa annua that germinated since the last treatment. 

Homeowner Tips:
Grass has finished growing and is preparing for dormancy so cutting the grass should not be needed. Leaving warm season grass higher during the winter months will help serve as insulation as the temperature drops. Normal frost occurs around the first of November and will change the color of the lawn from green to brown. A week after the first frost a camouflage pattern of green and brown will be noticed. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about as the lawn will turn all brown shortly. Leaves will fall during this time and should be removed or mulched regularly.
