ENVIRO-GRO TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS SIX SPRINGTIME LAWNCARE TIPS

 ENVIRO-GRO TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS SIX SPRINGTIME LAWNCARE TIPS
 LANCASTER, Pa., March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Jim Spindler, manager of marketing for specialty and retail products of Enviro-Gro Technologies, offers the following sidebar tips for healthy lawns:
 1. GIVE LAWN A GOOD SPRING CLEANING: Spring cleaning is not a chore for the home only. Over the winter, depending on climate, lawns may accumulate snow, leaves and trash. Before starting a lawn treatment program, spread the snow so it melts more quickly, rake leaves and fallen twigs, and remove all debris.
 2. PUT SOIL TO THE TEST: Soil must be in tip-top condition before a lawncare program can work to its fullest potential. Test the pH in the soil to assess whether or not lime must be added, and test for nutrients to assess whether or not special fertilizers are needed. You may either employ the services of a local state university extension center or acquire a do-it-yourself kit.
 3. TREAT CRABGRASS AND GOOSEGRASS WHEN FORSYTHIA BLOOM: Talk to a university or state college extension agent regarding when and how to treat your crabgrass (and goosegrass in southern states). It sounds much like an old wive's tale, but it's more often than not accurate -- in the areas where forsythia grow, the perfect time to treat crabgrass is when they are in bloom.
 4. APPLY FERTILIZER: Fertilize the lawn with a natural organic fertilizer as soon as possible in the spring (no later than the end of May in northern states). Carefully follow directions on packaging regarding rate or spreader setting.
 5. SPOT TREAT WEEDS: Spot treat weeds with herbicides, but only when and where necessary. Keep in mind that herbicides only work when weeds are green and actively growing.
 6. TUNE UP MOWER: It is essential that your mower is tuned up so it runs properly. Also, to prevent diseases, make sure the blade is sharpened so that grass is cut rather than torn.
