November

With the onset of November comes the end of Aeration and Seeding season and the beginning of the final applications of the year on both the lawn care and tree and shrub programs.  For lawn care this means that technicians will be prepared to apply a liquid treatment of broadleaf weed control and fertilizer to control winter weeds that have germinated along with new grass seedlings in the lawn.  If a technician visits a property with a recently seeded lawn that they feel is too young to handle weed control, they will apply a granular application of fertilizer, and wait until the start of the New Year for weed control.  The technicians will make an assessment on a lawn by lawn basis to ensure the best treatment for the lawn.

For customers on our tree and shrub program the final application of the year is a treatment of horticultural oil.  This application is designed to treat over wintering and sucking insects on susceptible plant material.  If you have questions about either of these applications, or would like an analysis for our tree and shrub program please contact our office and we will be happy to assist you.
