This month for our Lawn Care customers, we will continue to apply our third application. This application contains a slow-release fertilizer, pre-emerge and additional weed control. This application maintains color throughout the summer and provides consistent growth of cool-season grasses. Toward the end of the month, we will begin applying our fourth application. The fourth application is a liquid application containing post-emergent broadleaf weed control and a herbicide to control nutsedge. This will help further control both annual and perennial warm season weeds. Also this month, we will continue to apply our first application of fungicide for our Estate customers. This is a lawn disease application for control of Rhizoctonia (brown patch fungus) and Sclerotinia (dollar spot fungus) as well as iron for additional color.
For our Tree & Shrub program customers, we will continue applying the fourth application. This application is a liquid application for control of plant and tree diseases and insects. Mites are treated on susceptible plants. This application utilizes a systemic fungicide as well as a combination of insecticides for maximum control.
