Well, spring has sprung and that means warmer temperatures and of course, lawn and garden work! It matters not where it is that you call home, the good money is on the fact that you will be behind or on top (if you are lucky) of a lawn mower apparatus as soon as this weekend in the continental United States.
Beat Back the Weed Brigade
To get right down to it on this Briggs Stratton Part presentation regarding spring weed control, we wanted to tell you about our little trick that saves you both time and money in the battle against the dreaded weed brigade! Weeds have been planning and plotting their all-directional attack onto you turf areas since last winter so you better listen up and take a few notes!
Systemic and Pre-Emergent Wed Control Still Viable
At this point in time, it is still advantageous for you to use a two-pronged defense against encroaching weeds. The first is to spray directly on the present weeds, a systemic based weed killer. There are many on the market with the push being towards a more environmentally friendly product. After that spraying, and the very next weekend, apply your summer pre-emergent weed control agent and that will get you back in the game for weed control this year!
