West Michigan Lawn Care: When To Apply Your 2nd Application

May 3rd, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

In The Field: April 29, 2024 – May 3, 2024


By this time in the season, we are seeing tremendous growth from both the grass itself and the weeds that tend to follow. If you haven’t already applied your first application of weed control and fertilizer, do it asap. Our schedule is now on track to begin the 2nd round of weed control and fertilizer applications for the next 5 – 7 weeks. As you’re driving around, you will be able to stop which properties have already applied the first round and which have not. The dandelion field we found this week is a classic example of needing to apply some weed control asap. The more weeds you can choke out, the more grass will fill in and thicken up the yard overall.


A classic Vole trail was also found this week which showcases exactly why we apply our repellent in the landscape beds rather than in the yard. You can clearly see from the picture that the Vole lives in the beds, and is out scurrying through the lawn looking for food. Applying a repellent where they nest is the key to telling those invaders to take a hike.
