At this time, weed seeds germinate and will begin to pop up above ground. We want to get the pre-emergent weed control down to form that barrier in the soil to stop grassy weeds from germinating.
When it comes to weed control, we often worry about what we can see and not what may be happening underground. But it’s what we can’t see that can make some weeds so difficult to control.

But fear not, because we’re here […]
College Fund Landscaping has a Case of the Blues At College Fund Landscaping, we’ve had an epiphany, and no, it has nothing to do with music. It’s actually related to pre-emergent treatment.
