When To Apply Pre Emergent?
The age old question…when to apply pre emergent in North Texas? I was taught that “who, what, when, where and why” are questions to be asked when searching for an answer. These question of when to apply pre emergent are also asked of Wells Brothers almost daily. I am going to answer some of these now. Who? Home owners. What? Pre emergent herbicides. When? Mid-February. Where? On the lawn. Why? To stop weed growth before it starts. I know they are short answers but you get the idea. If you are on an all-natural program the product is called corn gluten meal. There are numerous synthetic products to choose from but Wells Brothers recommends Gallery (broadleaf) and Dimension (grasses).
Wells Brothers has been asked for an easy to read schedule for the application of fertilizers and pre emergent. There are plenty available in web-land and some are correct for our area. Wells Brothers now has our own. I hope these will fit this need. Please note that these are guides. Weather conditions such as rain and heat will alter the timing of these products.
