BERMUDA GRASS LAWN CARE
A Bermuda grass lawn is the hardiest and fastest-growing of the warm season grasses and is the preferred grass for sports fields and golf courses because it withstands heat, can be mowed low, repairs quickly, and is drought resistant.
Spring Pre-Emergent Application
Objective: Target weeds that typically start germinating in early spring including crabgrass, annual bluegrass, goosegrass, lespedeza and some broadleaf weeds.
Objective: Give turf that initial nitrogen feed to promote greening up and leaf & runner (stolen & Rhizomes) growth. We also include another round of pre-emergent to target crabgrass, spurge, and some broadleaf weeds. We use a granular, slow-release fertilizer to provide up to 3 months of feed depending on environmental conditions.
Early Summer Application with Clark's SloGro Growth Control
Objective: Boost nitrogen. The application will include micronutrients and bio-solids to help the turf with extreme heat and dry conditions. We add Iron and a growth regulator for color and improved stress relief.
Mid-Summer Application with Clark's SloGro Growth Control
Objective: To provide another boost of nitrogen. We also include micronutrients and bio-solids to help the turf get through the extreme heat and dry conditions. Iron and a growth regulator are added for a second round.
Late Summer Pre-Emergent
Objective: To get a pre-emergent down that targets Poa annua. This weed germinates in late summer but does not become an eye-sore until early spring.
Objective: To get potassium into the soil to prepare the plant for dormancy. Iron is also applied to enhance color without the risk associated with using nitrogen so close to the first freeze.
Objective: Apply another round of pre-emergent to target winter weeds and their germination.
Objective: This application adjusts soils with deficiencies in nutrients or soil PH. Based on a soil test, Dolomitic Lime or Sulfur may be applied to raise or lower PH. Any breakthrough winter weeds will be treated if observed.
Weed App*: New customers (first year) with weed problems will be offered post-emergent herbicide applications (weed treatments) based on observations at the time of lawn evaluation. After one full year under our program, Clark's will be responsible for weed issues (other than Sedge) and treat weed problems with the above-scheduled visits.
