When to Apply Pre-emergent Herbicides

Justin Watts - Sunday, February 06, 2011
Pre-emergent herbicides are an essential tool to help keep your lawn looking its best.  Pre-emergent herbicides when applied properly can keep annual weed seeds from germinating.  This is important, because many weeds can be prevented before they have a chance to compete with lawn and become a problem.  Because pre-emergent herbicides are used to prevent annual weeds, they must be applied prior to weeds germinating. 

Many people ask the question, "When is the best time to apply pre-emergent herbicides?"  To help answer this question, the professional staff at W.P. Law Inc. has put together a comprehensive fertilizer and weed prevention program for South Carolina grasses.  This schedule will outline when to apply pre-emergent herbicides and when to fertilize your lawn.  In South Carolina, we suggest applying three applications of pre-emergent herbicides to help protect against both cool-season and warm-season annual weeds.  W.P. Law Inc. has taken the guess work out of when and what types of fertilizers and pre-emergent herbicides to apply to your lawn.  Our programs cover the major grasses found in South Carolina including zoysia, centipede, fescue, st. augustine, and bermuda.  

Our professinal line of quality pre-emergent herbicides and fertilizers will help ensure you keep your lawn looking its best.  Since pre-emergent herbicide timing is critical, individuals can sign up to have reminder emails sent to them on when to apply pre-emergent herbicides and fertilizers for a variety of grass types.  Click the link below to learn more about the fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide programs available through W.P. Law Inc. and sign up for program reminders of when to apply products for your type of grass.  At W.P. Law Inc., we help take the guess work out of keeping your lawn the envy of the neighborhood.
