When to start working on lawn?

Hi all,

Im in central (or south-north, depending on who you ask) NJ. When should I start thinking about pre-emergent herbicides and fertilizing? Its still cold, but I suspect we will start warming up in the next few weeks...

Thanks in advance!

You could call a landscaping company and see when they would come out for the first application.

Having your soil tested is of primary importance. Your local county extension service will perform the test for you if you take the samples in. IMO, the most overlooked lawn preparation is the application of lime in February. It is a good pre emergent for most weeds, since weeds like acid soil.

It is the agricultural arm of your county government, usually associated with a large university or college nearby.
