HERBICIDES

Herbicides used on lawns are usually selective, focusing on and destroying certain weeds before or after they emerge. They may be an excellent method to maintain your grass while avoiding the growth of weeds, pests, and mosses.

As a result, it’s crucial to remember that pre-emergent herbicides are herbicides that kill weed seeds as they emerge. Post-emergent herbicides target weeds which have already begun to develop and must come into contact with the weed to be effective.

Lawn weeds don’t have a “one-size-fits-all” treatment. As a result, it’s critical to pick a specific herbicide tailored to your lawn and the weeds you wish to eliminate. Come to Landscapers Supply for cost-effective recommendations on our specialty herbicides.

FERTILIZER

Knowing grass fertilizer numbers and understanding your soil and sod type are the first steps in selecting the proper lawn nutrition. The right lawn fertilizer will encourage healthy turf and reduce weed and insect problems.

Fertilizers are composed of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Moreover, these nutrients are used to supplement nutrients in the soil that plants lack. Nitrogen is essential to the general health of a lawn. Phosphorus helps plants create strong root systems and increases flowering, fruit development, and seed production. When administered in the right dosage, it also assists in disease resistance. Potassium boosts water conservation and disease resistance while promoting optimal lawn development.

FUNGICIDE

Fungicides prevent diseases like black spots, mildew, rusts, and molds. They also kill fungi and mushrooms that can harm your lawn. Fungicides are available in both granular and liquid forms. There are a variety of fungicides to consider, to help you select the best one for your lawn’s problem you can consult our Turf experts for free.

INSECTICIDES AND PESTICIDES

Pesticides are used to kill creatures, whereas insecticides are used to kill insects.. Brown stains, dead and dying grass patches, wilting, and apparent bite scars on grass blades are all signs that pests have infested your lawn. Pesticides must be carefully chosen and used to prevent injuring non-target species and animals, including pets.
