Lawn Fertilization Schedule: The Time is Now
Don’t Give Dandelions a Chance
Our customers have been filling Paramount’s lawn fertilization schedule since January. They know that the way to stop dandelions is to have a trusted lawn fertilization company in place before the early weeds of spring have a chance to germinate.
The Ohio State University advises about dandelions:
“Flowers form mostly in April and May, but flowers have been known to appear as early as February and as late as June.”
April will be here soon enough, which means dandelions are making their first moves already. It takes about 8 – 15 weeks after germination for a dandelion to bloom. Once they bloom, it only takes 9 – 12 days for those seeds to start flying and infest your lawn. Check out this time lapse video showing the lifecycle of a dandelion over a year.
Paramount’s Lawn Fertilization Schedule Keeps Your Lawn Green & Weed-Free
At Paramount Lawn + Landscape, we love Cincinnati lawns. We’ve perfected the local lawn fertilization schedule over decades, and our customers trust us to keep their lawns lush and free of weeds year after year.
Our 6-Step Lawn Fertilization Program is ideally calibrated for the Cincinnati area.
In early spring and late spring, we apply pre-emergent herbicides and broadleaf weed control to keep various weeds under control, including:
- Ground ivy
A Cincinnati Lawn Fertilization Schedule Includes Fertilizer Spring, Summer and Fall
The best way to discourage weeds of all types is to ensure your turf is healthy and lush. A thick, green lawn will resist weeds because of the density of its growth and root coverage. That’s why our lawn fertilization schedule includes fertilizer application 6 times per year:
- Early spring
- Late spring
- Early summer
- Late summer
- Early fall
- Late fall
During winter, your lawn has gone dormant, so fertilization isn’t needed until things begin to warm up again. The late fall fertilization will strengthen your turf’s roots to be ready for vigorous growth in the early spring (and sometimes even late winter, depending on how cold the season was).
Grub Control: Another Important Part of Your Lawn Fertilization Schedule
Fewer things can damage turf roots as badly as grubs. It’s critical to prevent grubs from taking hold in your lawn, because you won’t know they are there until unsightly brown spots develop. By then, you’re looking at a long process to rehabilitate and regrow your lawn.
At Paramount, we apply insect and grub control in Round 3, during early summer. This preventative measure is another way we keep your lawn healthy, thriving and weed-free.
