Golf Green’s early summer lawn application includes applying a Controlled-Release Summer Fertilizer and Broadleaf Weed Control to your lawn.
Q: Does rain affect this application?
A: Light Rain will benefit this application. However, Heavy Rainfall less than one hour after an application can limit the effectiveness of the Broadleaf Weed Control. If the weeds are not “curling up” after 10-14 days please give us a call. Fertilizer is absorbed through the grass roots, and will benefit from rainfall moving the nutrients into the soil.
Q: How long will it take for weeds to die?
A: Broadleaf weed control is absorbed into the leaf tissue of weed plants. Weeds will gradually wither and die over a period of 10-14 days. Broadleaf Weed Control will “kill” only weeds that are actively growing at the time of application. It does not prevent new weeds from germinating. This is one reason we recommend our full program — so that your lawn specialist regularly returns every 4-6 weeks to treat any weeds that have recently come up.
GRUBS ARE THE MOST SERIOUS AND DESTRUCTIVE LAWN PEST IN ILLINOIS. Various species of beetles, the adult stage of grubs, lay eggs from May through July. If your lawn is not already scheduled – then you should consider adding a Grub Preventative to your program. Please call if you have any questions about potential grub damage.
