Calloway's Timely Tips for March

Calloway’s Timely Tip for March
Lawn Care in March
• Plant grass sod now but wait until May to plant seed.
• Fertilize your lawns towards the end of the month with a complete
fertilizer such as Calloway’s Premium Lawn Fertilizer 21-5-10 or
Calloway’s Organic Fertilizer 6-2-4.
• Apply preemergents early this month to prevent weed and grass seeds
from germinating-Green Light Crabgrass Preventer for grassy weeds
and Green Light Portrait for broadleaf weeds.
• Apply a post-emergent broadleaf weed killer such as Green Light’s
Wipe-Out to kill existing dandelions, henbit, and chickweed. Apply
when daytime temperature is above 70 degrees.
• Check your automatic sprinkler system for leaks and broken pipes or
• Tune up the lawnmower and have the blade sharpened, if needed.
