Establishing Your Lawn Is Important for New Construction

Aug02_NewConstruction

Fall is a great time for many lawn projects, including getting your lawn established. If your lawn is in major need of seeding and sodding, your central Minnesota lawn experts at Emerald Companies can help.

Improper Seeding and Sodding Means a Bad Lawn
When it comes to a completely new installation, the importance of proper seeding and sodding can’t be stressed enough. There’s no doubt that you have seen the result of poor seeding and sodding at some point, whether the victim was your neighbor’s lawn or perhaps even your own.

The Importance of Great Sod Preparation
Many times, sod fails because it was not installed properly, not because the sod itself was the issue. When the soil underneath the sod has been prepared appropriately, the sod will have a greater likelihood of adhering and establishing roots quickly.

If you want to know more about new installations contact our team at Emerald Companies. St. Cloud lawn experts who have the tools and experience are ready and waiting to help.

When to apply pre-emergent to your yard

May04_InspirationalWhen considering how to best prevent weeds and crabgrass from overtaking your lawn, timing is crucial.

Putting down pre-emergent when it first appears is not the answer, as by this time some crabgrass seedlings have already sprouted and cannot be controlled by pre-emergent chemicals. Therefore, applying pre-emergent may kill crabgrass that has already sprouted, but any seeds it has left behind will inevitability sprout next spring.

In an effort to avoid this scenario, Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) advises having a team of experts perform a series of spring clean up tasks for your lawn, including dethaching (if needed), using fertilizer to help thicken your lawn, followed by the application of pre-emergent chemicals. The earlier in the spring this is done the better. An extensive procedure such as this can protect your lawn for months to come and cause fewer headaches later in the year.

Call Emerald Companies (St Cloud, MN) (320) 251-5296 for more information.
