Early Spring Turfgrass Tips 

  • Don't apply fertilizer to warm-season lawns just yet. Wait until after green-up in spring.

  • Lawn Mower Tune-Up: Sharpen the blades, check the spark plug, clean the air filter, and check the oil and gas now so your mower is ready when you need it. Better yet, buy an Automower® and let it mow your lawn instead. We've got a great installation deal going on right now. Scroll down.

  • Pre-emergent herbicide: It's too late to apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent summer weeds. Time to focus on post-emergents now.

  • Post-emergent Broadleaf Herbicide for dormant well-established lawns (Bermuda, Zoysia, Fescue): Apply Trimec post-emergent herbicide for control of broadleaf weeds that have emerged. Super-Sod carries this product.

  • Organic Lawn Care 15 Minute Blast: Spend a few minutes weeding by hand every day. You'll burn calories, plus you'll be practicing organic lawn care at its purest. It's cheaper than the gym!

  • Although it seems counter-intuitive, it's fine to install most dormant warm-season grasses at this time of year. Follow this link for more information or call us with any questions.

  • It's still a great time to lay Elite Tall Fescue sod. It requires MUCH less water to establish Fescue now (when it's cool), than when temperatures are warm.

  • Apply Limestone to all yards except for Centipede. Proper soil pH is crucial for a plant's ability to uptake important available nutrients. Application of lime (and all fertilizers) should be based on soil test results. We have limestone in stock.

  • Fertilizing Tall Fescue: Use our 16-4-8. Come by to pick up your bags.
