Another superior aspect of the TurfMasters program relates to our weed control strategies. Our approach focuses on weed prevention. The best defense of a weed-free lawn is one that is thick and healthy; our university-proven fertility program provides for that. Next, our team members work with you to make sure the proper cultural practices are being done, mainly correct mowing and watering techniques. At the heart of the TurfMasters weed grass prevention effort is an initial pre-emergent crabgrass control application applied with the Early Spring service. We then follow that up with a 2nd pre-emergent in the Late Spring to extend the period of control when the barrier can start to break down. Most of our competitors do not do this, certainly not the national companies.
