Currently there is no effective organic solution to deal with crabgrass. Therefore, you may want to implement a HYBRID PROGRAM that uses about half the traditional amount of pre-emergent. We can control broad leaf weeds in the same manner by spot-spraying instead of applying a blanket treatment. We do have 100% organic insecticides if needed.
A 100% ORGANIC PROGRAM is available if you can live with a few weeds to start, until we can get tight root development. You can certainly spot-dig annoying weeds or we can collaborate on a spot-spray plan.
You will need fewer applications as you bring the soil back to life. Applications of Dry Crumbles® can be cut by 1/3 year two and up to 1/2 by year three (depending on soil’s existing condition). Year one will require four applications, followed by three during the second year, leveling at two applications moving forward, or as needed.
Option 1 - Hybrid Organic
We will use a small amount of pre-emergent for crab grass control in the spring. We will spot-treat, not blanket spray for broadleaf weeds. We can cut the chemical use by half using new technology. The remaining applications will be organic and sustainable products that will ensure the plants and soil are working together at their optimum level.
Early Spring - Application of pre-emergent and Dry Crumbles
Late Spring - Dry Crumbles and Humega® applied; spot spray for weeds
Fall - Dry Crumbles, Humega and Seaweed Creme® application; spot spray for weeds.
Option 2 - 100% Organic
We will use only organic and sustainable applications. Some weeds may arise over time but we can effectively crowd them out by building healthier root systems. Homeowners can remove weeds or spot spray. You may request that we spot-spray with a formulation that allows us to cut traditional herbicides by 50%. We can also collaborate on a spray plan using BioFlora technology for other weeds.
