Randy Lemmon Lawn Schedule
For those of you following Randy Lemmons’ Lawn Care schedule it is time to start your spring applications. First you’ll want to put out the Barricade Pre-emergent. This will keep weed seeds from sprouting in the lawn. Wait about 4-5 days, after you can apply the Imperial Lawn Fertilizer. This will give the grass a quick greening. About 5-6 weeks after first feeding, you’ll want to apply the Superturf Fertilizer, this is a slow release fertilizer that will feed the lawn until the summer application in June.
Spring Organic Lawn Care
If you are following an organic lawn schedule the first thing you will want to apply is Corn Gluten Meal. This will suppress any weed seeds from sprouting. Next you will want to apply MicroLife Humates Plus or the Medina Soil Activator. This will help loosen and reinvigorate the soil. Lastly, once the grass is actively growing or after your second mowing of the season you can apply the MicroLife 6-2-4. This will feed the lawn for 3 month before applying the summer application.
