Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When is the best time to control Crabgrass?
Ans: In the Richmond area, the first pre-emergent application should be applied no later than the second week of April. Our treatment program offers season long control.

Q: How can I reduce erosion and allow new plants to become established?                                                                       Ans: A protective mulch application that covers at least 75 percent of the soil surface helps prevent seeds from washing away, provides a better environment for germination, and slows runoff on slopes.

Q: What is post-emergent weed control?
Ans: Post-emergent weed control is for dicot, or broadleaf weeds. Dandelions, Chickweed, and Clover are examples. This treatment is usually started in the spring.

Q: Can grass seed be planted in spring when I am controlling weeds?
Ans: In most cases, no, but there are a few exceptions. Over seeding is most effective in the fall season.

Q: When is the best time to aerate my lawn?
Ans: Core aeration can be done both spring and fall. Fall is usually the best time because it helps relieve soil compaction from a hot summer and enhances fall over seeding.

Q: When is the best time to water my lawn?
Ans: Good water management practices encourage watering between 5am and 9am. Watering pattes may vary by time of year.

Q: What are the brown spots I see in my lawn during the summer?
