Timing

St. Louis is known for its fluctuating weather and seasonal cycles play a critical role in lawn care. Your lawn care schedule should be mindful of our climate. So while the calendar may call March early spring, it’s not unusual for us to have snow on the ground, or conversely to see that the jonquils and forsythia are all blooming.

In Missouri you just never know, and that’s why it’s important to work with current conditions taking calendar optimal times into consideration when applying your fertilizer and weed controls.

Here's a tip: follow local companies that you trust on social media such as Facebook or Twitter and find out when they start applying their products. It's a free and easy way to stay ahead of the curve. 

Products

Here's a tip: Typically the products that you find a big box retail stores (like Home Depot or Lowes) are not going to be as strong as the ones that you can find at a local nursery. 

A Comprehensive Program

To prevent weeds, the best defense is a thick, well established, healthy stand of grass. Healthy grass is the result of several factors: grass type, soil, sunshine, water, and nutrients applied. Interestingly enough, your expectations for a perfect or no-so-perfect lawn also influences your choices.

If you are a "do-it-yourself gardener" we suggest you get local advice, watch the weather, and use proven, successful products.
