What we’re noticing:
  • We got a little rain on Friday (with a broad range of amounts within ProLawns’ service area) and even though last week was hot, cooler temperatures are in the forecast! Not only that but above average precipitation is in the forecast for the end of August!

What we’re doing:
  1. This round of application is built for August – Feels like we’re on our third August this year. We’re putting down a strong broadleaf weed control that’s effective on even the toughest broadleaf weeds like Creeping Charlie. Now is typically the time of year where the broadleaf weeds thrive and take advantage of the heat stressed lawns but this year we’ve been fighting this since May. Now is the purpose built solution.

  2. A grassy weed, such as Crabgrass, may be appearing here and there; this summer more likely than others. Crabgrass loves hot and dry conditions. Our preventer acts like a coat of wax to protect your lawn and it has been put to the test and worn away more this season than others. During this application, we will also be treating the crabgrass which is likely to appear on the edges of your lawn by the driveway or road.

  3. We’re also starting our aeration and overseed schedule! We’re doing everything we can to ensure our lawns are on their way to recovery after this brutal summer

What you can be doing:
  1. Mow as high as your mower will go – if you need to mow at all

  2. Water appropriately (amount and timing are both important!)
