Weeds in your lawn as well as weeds in your landscape beds can be controlled either before or after they appear with the use of pre-emergence herbicides, or already existing, with post emergence herbicide applications. Herbicides are made selective so it is important to know the specific type of weed you need to control.
Timing is most important when using insecticides. These chemicals must be used in accordance with the life cycle of the specific pest. Great precaution should also be taken to not harm the environment when they are used. The best preventive insecticide we feel, is Merit. This can be deep root injected, usually along with fertilizer using special equipment, allowing systemic absorption and works its way through out the plant. By deep root injection the chemical goes right to the plant and not anywhere else. This will protect your tree or plant longer than any other type of application. Other insecticide treatments can be applied if you see an already existing problem.
Proper fertilization can greatly help your lawn, trees and shrubs. Next to watering, fertilization comes second in importance. Last year the Employees at Northampton Gardens Inc. graduated from an 8 week course from Penn State Ground Maintenance. There they learned the newly recommended fertilizer schedule, along with many other management programs.
Applications of fungicides are usually determined by the weather. Great care must be taken when mixing these chemicals and again, proper timing is very important. Be especially aware of landscape material planted in damp areas or those with minimal sun exposures.
