KEEPING CREEPING CHARLIE OUT OF YOUR LAWN
Regular feedings, 2-4 times per year, provide the nutrients your lawn needs to grow thick and strong and help crowd out weeds
Mowing at a height best for your lawn allows the grass to grow thick and develop a deep root system. Grass clippings recycle nutrients back into the soil.
Your lawn will begin to wilt when water is needed. As much as possible, take advantage of nature's sprinklers and rely on the rain to water your lawn. If using sprinklers, water lawns deeply and infrequently (1" of water per week is all that your lawn needs).
- The growing conditions favorable for ground ivy – shade, wet soil, and poor nutrition – are not favorable for lawns.
- The best time to control ground ivy is in the spring when the weed is in bloom or in the fall.
