We all know summer is right around the corner bringing with it much warmer temperatures— let’s just say its gonna get REALLY hot! May is a good month to get your lawn and garden ready for the dry season by building a good root structure, particularly for your lawn. Argyle Feed & Hardware recommends applying a quality, broad spectrum fertilizer such as Scott’s Turf Builder on your lawn now to ensure a deep, lush growth over the next month. Remember to apply fertilizer after a period of heavy rains so the fertilizer nutrients aren’t washed away and unable to reach the roots deep beneath the turf.
Have bare areas in your yard? Right now is the most effective time to apply grass seed to generate new growth in sparse areas. We have plenty of grass seed products at Argyle Feed & Hardware including Scotts Turf Builder Grass Seed Sun & Shade Mix. This grass seed product contains a mix of sun and shade loving grass seed types as well as mulch and Scotts patented Water Plus seed coating. The result is new grass growth with faster germination, less disease susceptibility and higher water absorption than uncoated grass seed.
