Snow on the Lawn

There is a chance of snow coming up this week and I have taken a lot of phone calls with questions about what it means to the lawn.  Nothing really.  We are still applying lime at this time and probably will be for another week or so. While we will not be working in the snow, snow accumulating on the ground is not going to affect the service.  Lime needs time to get worked into the soil anyway. 
     Some other companies have started applying their pre-emergence rounds a little early.  Again, I wouldn't worry about the pre-emergence too much.  A little snow on the ground is not going to thin it out.  Post emergent weed control can suffer if treated right before the snow.  So if there is a broadcast weed control being sprayed tomorrow and it snows tomorrow night, the product may not have been on the leaf of the weed long enough to kill the weed.  Cold weather extends the kill period anyway. Whereas a typical 3-way weed control can take up to two weeks to kill the average broadleaf weed in the Summer, you can extend that time to three weeks in the Winter.  Kemko,of course, guarantees our weed control. So if there are any weeds hanging around longer than they should, please don't hesitate to call us.  We won't know about it otherwise and we are always happy to come back and help keep your lawn looking great!
