Early Spring…the time to consider and reconsider lawns, yards, flower beds and gardens. As the weather warms many of us are prepping mowers, cleaning beds and taking inventory of our Spring supply of seeds, fertilizer and equipment.  Numerous varieties of lawn fertilizers,  grass seed and lawn care chemicals are in stock. This season, let the staff at Martin’s help you have the best and most beautiful lawn and garden you’ve ever had!


Now is the time to be applying granular or liquid crabgrass control.  Did you ever see those ugly splays of wide bladed grass sending up shoots that don’t blend with the rest of the lawn or mysteriously appear along walks and driveways?  Crabgrass it is and if left unchecked the parent plant and its Digitaria sanguinalis brood will attempt a hostile takeover of your lawn. The seeds germinate in late spring and early summer and outcompete the domesticated lawn grasses. In autumn when the plants die they drop their seeds to emerge the next growing season.  Stop crabgrass before it starts with:

Pendulum – For preemergent control of crabgrass, goose grass, and most other grassy and broadleaf weeds in cool and warm season turfgrasses.  A        2 1/2 gallon jug treats 5 acres of lawn. Easy to mix and use in a home/garden sprayer.

Crabgrass control with dimension –  50 lb. bag of granules that provides post emergent control up to the 3 leaf stage. Spreads easily through any spreader.  One bag will cover 15,000 sq ft.  Apply Feb – April/May for season long control.
