A Tip from DAN…

       Congratulations! Your lawn has made it thru another summer and is ready for fall. One good thing that came out of all the rain this summer was our lush green lawns with less damage than typical summers in the past.

Herbein’s Lawn Center is here with the products and advice to help you in your lawn care throughout the whole season.  Here is a brief month-by-month overview:

October…
There’s still time early in the month to do things like aerate or do patch seeding. By now, major lawn renovations should probably wait until early spring. There’s just not enough time to get a good growth before the dormancy stage. PERENNIAL RYE BLEND is the best option if you choose to plant a lawn this time of year. It comes in fast (7-10 days) and holds up well over the winter. Overseeding may be necessary in the spring. Overseed under deciduous trees because of leaf and needle loss, there is more light and less competition for nutrients and water. Fall is also the best time for liming your turf. Line added to the surface of a lawn takes a long time to work its way down and raise the pH. Therefore a fall application will produce results by the spring growing season. If you don’t need to overseed, this is a great time to attack those hard to kill weeds such as ground ivy with a weed killer like Bonide’s Weed Beater Ultra or Ortho’s Weed B Gone.

November…

   By mid-November, the grass should be well on its way to dormancy and the last cut of the year is usually this month. It’s time for a late fall fertilization around Thanksgiving. Use Scotts Winter Guard, Lebanon’s Greenkeeper or Espomas Fall Winterizer Lawn Food. This will keep the grass green through December and add nutrients to the roots which continue grow even though above ground is dormant. It will also help to get the grass going in the spring but not force it to grow as an early spring fertilizer does. Your first application will not be needed until May.

December…

  Time for any late season clean up. Decorate for the holidays, put up the tree and prepare for the rush of the season. Relax and and get ready to start a whole new cycle over again!

January…

   Recover from Christmas, enjoy the beauty of winter, read your seed catalogs and plan for the year ahead. Spend time over the winter months deciding what you might want to add to your gardens.

Tip:

“Spend your money to grow things, not kill them.” -Dan

One last reminder…the key to a weed free lawn is not about the amount of weed killer you apply, but about how thick your lawn is. The weed seeds need sun to germinate, so by fertilizing and over-seeding, you’ll have a much more cost effective weed free lawn.

White clover seed is a great cover crop, bee crop and erosion control crop. White clover grows vigorously even in poor clay subsoil around new home construction. If you want all the benefits of a cover crop but don’t want to till early or mow, clover is your best bet. Getting a good stand of white clover seeds is a first and critical step to success with this high quality, persistent crop. Since white clover is usually grown with a cool season perennial grass (may be planted alone too), it is usually either seeded at the same time as the grass or seeded into an existing grass stand.

White clover seed can be planted immediately!
