Fall Lawn Spraying
Are there benefits to spraying your lawn in the fall? Spraying your lawn in the fall involves applying a pre-emergent treatment. For pre-emergent treatment to work, it needs to be in your soil at not only the right time, but when the temperature is right.
Pre-emergent doesn’t kill weed seeds.
Pre-emergent stops the growth process of weed seeds.
It creates a sort of thin barrier between your soil and the weed seeds below.
Pre-emergent should be applied at just the time when weeds begin to sprout. The goal is to have the weeds hit the barrier created by the treatment.
Benefits of applying a fall treatment?
A fall pre-emergent helps to prevent weeds through the winter and early spring. You also won’t have to start cutting as early in the spring. This keeps your grass from having to compete with weeds for nutrients.
Even with the most thorough treatment, there are always some weeds that won’t be harmed by the treatment. This is why a year round plan is the only plan that really works.
Timing is Everything
Unlike a great comedy routine, timing in lawn care doesn’t boil down to one great pause or punch line. Great lawn care is based on year round timing and care, not waiting until “the spring” to get your lawn looking good. It is a commitment that involves planning and attention to detail.

Organic lawn care
Organic lawn care is a great concept. Organic anything is a great concept, but it is often hard to achieve and sometimes unrealistic. Achieving a balance is a more realistic option for the things we can control in our environment.
Whether driving a car, lighting a gas stove, or spraying disinfectant on our kitchen counter tops, there is always a risk present. Balancing between safety, organic, natural, cost-effective, and more is a part of our daily lives, now more than ever.
We live where you live
LPS strives to provide the best results with the lowest risk and impact to our environment. We live where you live and care about our environmental future. We feel we strike a very good balance between effective weed control and caring for our environment.
Organic lawn care is a great concept, but with challenges for our area. Because we have such a long growing season, it is hard to provide reliable results. A longer growing season for your lawn and plants also means a longer growing season for weeds!
Our products and treatments, pre-emergent
There are currently no organic pre-emergents available. Any products we apply have gone through rigorous testing and are approved by the EPA for application on home lawns. We currently use a product that is derived from a plant and could almost be considered organic (however, it is not recognized as such).
A good pre-emergent in the fall and spring is the cornerstone of any effective lawn care program. When you prevent most of the weeds, minimal herbicide applications are required later.
