Step 1: Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food 20-0-3

A unique combination of slow release lawn food with trace elements and the pre-emergent Crabgrass control of Team (Treflan and Balan).
Team provides 12-16 week pre-emergent Crabgrass control and is one of the best pre-emergent weed control products available. Wait at least 6-8 weeks before sowing grass seed in the lawn. Can be used on both cool and warm season grasses.

DO  NOT use this product if you intend to reseed in the spring as it will prevent “good” seed to germinate as well !

TIP: Best success is achieved if you apply this when you see the forsythia blooming!

Step 2: Weed-Out Plus Lawn Fertilizer 25-0-4

Provides excellent post-emergent broadleaf weed control on cool and warm season grasses.  Results in 7 to 10 days.

TIP: On an average year this should be applied 6-8 weeks after Step 1.

Step 3: Classic Lawn Food 16-0-8

Contains Polymer Coated Sulfur Coated Urea which provides gradual, long-lasting release of Nitrogen to promote optimal uptake by lawn grasses. This formulation has proven to be the best for Southern lawns as well as cool season grasses.

 TIP: On an average year this should be applied mid June.

Step 4: Lawn Food Plus Iron 24-0-4 (40 lbs)

A good all-around lawn food with iron for fast immediate greening on all types of lawns. The iron in the product is chelated for fast, long lasting green-up of the lawn. It contains two types of Nitrogen, which allow for quick greening and long term stable growth.

TIP: On an average year this should be applied late July to early August.

Step 5: Winterizer for Established Lawns 10-0-14

Fall feeding is one of the most critical feeding times. A healthy and stable plant can endure the hardship of winter better than a weak plant. Winterizer builds winter hardiness, stem strength and disease resistance in lawns, trees and shrubs.

TIP: On an average year this should be applied mid October.

Gumpf Gardens also carries premium lawn seed for sunny or shady lawns.  Don’t plant weed seeds!  Our seed is a premium grade – tested for purity.
