Is it Time for Crabgrass Preventer?

- Monday, April 22, 2019
Monnick Supply, Marlborough, Framingham, MA

It depends on your area. Crabgrass typically germinates when soil temperatures consistently reach 62°. Crabgrass preventer should be applied when soil temperatures reach 50° to 55°. Once your soil temperature is in the correct range, it is important to apply Green-Up plus Crabgrass Preventer. Green-Up plus Crabgrass Preventer not only provides season-long prevention of crabgrass, but controls crabgrass AFTER it grows - up to the third leaf stage.

Green-Up Lawn Food with Crabgrass Preventer is the first application in Jonathan Green's New American Lawn 4-Bag Annual Program, the ONLY one on the market that feeds the lawn...and the soil! The New American Lawn feeds lawns with slow-release lawn fertilizers, controls weeds with superior herbicides, and enhances sub-soil with a unique "soil" fertilizer called Mag-I-Cal Plus. Mag-I-Cal Plus, the third step of the program, adjusts soil pH, loosens hard soil, and bio-stimulates the soil microbial life. It's simple.

Healthy soil is the foundation for healthy lawns...and the New American Lawn 4-Bag Program, unlike all others, makes this happen!

So feed your lawn - and your soil - and finally get the lawn that you've always wanted!

What if I Want to Seed?

If you plan to seed this spring, then you must use our Crabgrass Preventer plus New Seeding Fertilizer in lieu of Green-Up plus Crabgrass Preventer. The former product is especially formulated to allow grass seed to germinate through the crabgrass barrier.

Standard crabgrass preventers are unable to make this distinction.
