"You want to put weed treatment down fi rst to prevent it." Treating a lawn for weeds after seeding will likely end up kill- ing the new grass along with undesirable growth. Both Kinkead and Brown recommended speaking with customers about additional services as early as possible. "You can talk to customers now about what might happen to their lawns and that these are ways to get in front of it," Kinkead said. For Brown, explaining the benefi ts of the three services to customers in March can help his company get into the fi eld earlier and be able to reach more of the yards they maintain. Even if the weather is too cold to see any effect when Teed & Brown crews begin working, customers will see results as weather warms up. Article contributed by Turfco Manufacturing.
