Step 1 – Crabgrass Preventer

To begin, you’ll want to get out in front of crabgrass problems before they start. Apply in early March thru early April for best results. If you’re seeding, use Starter Fertilizer in place of crabgrass preventer. A single treatment covers approximately 6,000 square feet.

Step 2 – Long-Lasting Lawn Food

Fertilize in spring to get your lawn growing, and use Kansas City’s Select brand for the right nutrient balance. Apply in April and May, and be sure not to over-fertilize. A single treatment covers approximately 5,000 square feet.

Step 3 – Fall Lawn Starter

Great lawns are built in the fall. Whether you’re seeding your lawn or not, apply fall lawn starter in late August thru early October. That will help keep your roots strong come springtime. A single treatment covers approximately 5,000 square feet.

Step 4 – Winterizer (First-Application)

Green your lawn up through the end of fall and help get it through the winter. Put down your first application of winterizer late September thru late October. A single treatment covers approximately 5,000 feet.

Step 5 – Winterizer (Second-Application)

Finish the year strong to ensure the healthiest lawn in spring and throughout the next year, by putting down your second application of winterizer in late October thru early December. A single treatment covers approximately 5,000 square feet.
