Step 1 is designed to get your lawn started on the right foot. Grassy weeds like crabgrass are a common problem for spring lawns, so Step 1 with Crabgrass Preventer helps cut them down before they invade. Adding in lawn food helps revitalize lawns that have endured a harsh winter. Step 1 can be applied anytime in early spring, particularly from February to April in temperatures below 80 degrees.
Step 2 can be applied in late spring (April - June) but you must wait at least 4 weeks from your initial Step 1 application. This formula is especially designed to stop dandelions and other broadleaf weeds from taking over. It also adds in enriching nutrients to prepare your lawn for what can be a harsh summer climate. Step 2 strengthens your lawn from the roots up.
Step 3 is used to give your lawn a jolt of much-needed nourishment in mid-summer. Typically applied in July and August, Step 3 provides a boost of iron and helps your lawn withstand the summer heat. If rain is not in the forecast, be sure to give your lawn a good watering after applying. You'll also want to spot-treat weeds as well.
Step 4 should be applied 4-6 weeks after Step 3, in August - November. Step 4 is crucial to your lawn coming back strong the next year; while it greens up your lawn in late fall, it really helps strengthen and ensure that your lawn can endure the winter. Add a healthy watering after applying to help speed up the greening process.
