March 2013: Spring Start Up

It's about that time again!

We will be starting our first round of lawn treatments in late March. Please, have your yard cleaned up prior to this time. If you need assistance, please, contact us.

This spring, we will be using two applications of Pentamethalin for our pre-emergent. This product has been proven to be the best for preventing crabgrass and foxtail in Nebraska. Several seasons ago, we changed our broadleaf weed control product to Q4, which gives us extra control for crabgrass, ground ivy, nut sedge and spurge. We always offer the highest quality products and services available.

We will use Merit grub control exclusively again in 2013 to give longer control against these and most other insects feeding on the turf. Grub worm has been a serious problem in Nebraska for a few years, but our "Merit" control works great in nullifying this pest along with sod webworm and cutworm.

Our program will control broad leaf weeds and most insects, and provide enough nutrients for the turf throughout the long growing season without promoting excess growth.

The weather forecast for this year is hot again, but wetter. This forecast, if true, will help keep us reasonable water bills.

I am hoping gasoline prices remain somewhat reasonable throughout 2013. Unlike other companies, we have never charged a gasoline surcharge and hope to never have to do so in the future.

Check out our website at www.LibertyLawn.biz. It is full of useful information on many subjects. The site will help us provide even greater service to our prized possessions - you, our customers.

Please, contact us if you require help starting or repairing your sprinkler system.

In the event you will not require our services for the upcoming year, please send written notification to the office. If we do not receive a cancellation request, we will continue our services as usual.

Thank you for your business.

See you soon!
