Toby Spring 2019 Lawn Kickoff Tip
It didn't take Toby long to get a sniff of warm Spring weather to get us into action with the Spring Lawn Kickoff. It's time for a short mow (an essential step most of us ignore that will make a huge difference all season) and an application of Hummert Fertilizer with Dimension Crabgrass Control. Find out why the chemical Dimension will not only make a huge difference in season long crabgrass control, but also help control a lot of those early Spring weeds that are growing but too small to even see yet! This is one of the most important steps in Toby's Lawn Program. Get out and enjoy this warm weather, dust off that mower and get to work (It's really not that hard and will only take you about two hours!!!!) so have some fun!
Tips from Toby Fall Lawn Options
This is the time of year when many of us "overseed". From advertisements to big seed sales, it's what we're told to do. The truth is - most of us don't need to put down seed at all, we just need to feed the grass that is already there. Proper fertilization, watering and the cooler weather will do the rest. Grass thickens (tillers and rhyzomes) all on its own. We just need to give it a Fall boost to get there. In this week's tip we discuss whether you need to seed at all, how to properly apply seed and the equipment to get the job done right. Find out if you need to seed, or if simple fertilization will do the trick. It can save you a lot of time and money.
Tips from Toby – Seed Options
In just a couple of weeks a lot of us will run out and buy some grass seed to overseed the lawn. Believe it or not - you could be doing more harm than good. Most of us don't need to do Fall overseeding. Fertilizing the healthy grass you already have will help the grass tiller and rhyzome so it will thicken and fill in those bare spots naturally. Over the next two weeks we'll help you decide if adding more seed to your lawn is necessary, how to properly apply grass seed and much more.
