Guard Your Green

One of the most commonly asked questions in the gardening field is how to keep your lawn free of weeds.  The truth is, there is no way to completely eliminate all weeds, for good.  However, depending on the variety of grass you grow, there are some tips that can put you on the right track.  The best method of minimizing the weeds in your lawn, or greens, is prevention.  And, you know what they say about prevention!  Amaze Grass and Weed Preventer is perfect for applying over the top of warm season turf and ornamentals. You will be able to control some of the most common offenders such as Chickweed,  Spurge, Purslane, Barnyardgrass, Crabgrass, and Johnsongrass just to name a few.  It forms a protective barrier in the soil surface which prevents weeds from germinating.  Amaze contains Balan and Surflan, for those of you who know your herbicides.  For effective weed control all season long, apply every 4 months.  A four pound bag treats up to 900 square feet.  Be sure to read the label carefully before using, though!

Best of all, this is an organic product.  It will not burn turf, ornamentals, or harm the environment.  It is an herbicide you can feel good about using!
