  • Lawn care schedule/program

    Alright, take it from the top please. Like I said, Im a brand new guy looking to get it going this season and beyond. I would like a better understanding of the typical schedule for lawn care. Heres how I see it....
    early spring- corn gluten
    summer- corn gluten
    fall- dethatch if needed then aerate then top dress/overseed and fertilizer.

    how off base am I? I really like the thought of all organics like Growing Green has been selling. Im needing a plan!

    Hi Brian,
    This all depends on what area you are in, but this is what I do in South Texas which will be a little different than you in OKC. I'm farely new at all of this as well. What I suggest is to go to an organic nursery near you and ask them what the best times is to apply the different organic products in your area. This is what I do though:

    February - Corn Gluten (it is a 9-0-0 so it acts as a fertilizer as well)
    March - Organic Compost
    March or Fall - Organic Mulch for flower beds
    Fall - Organic Fertilizer

    I don't thatch yet. Don't know enough about it and not sure if I need a license for that.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Matt
