Macho Mix or Estate Mix, both have perennial sports rye that will germinate quick in cooler soils and establish quickly avoiding any winter damage. Use PrimeraFC or sphagnum peat moss over the top of the seed and keep it moist. Remember, “No bare spots will mean no spring weeds next spring.”
October and November are an excellent time to control broadleaf weeds like dandelions, clover, and chickweed. In fall, broadleaf perennial weeds are busy collecting energy from photosynthesis and storing it in the crown and roots. Speedzone and Trimec contains systemic herbicides that will move through the leaf tissue and in to the crown and roots for a complete kill. Killing broadleaf weeds in fall will allow turf to grow and fill in bare spots this fall before crabgrass or other weeds germinate next spring.
