A Lush Lawn

Lawn care experts share top tips.

As soon as the snow subsides, it’s time to start caring for your lawn. “You can put down crab grass preventer as soon as the snow melts,” Mike Frattallone, co-owner of Frattallone’s Ace Hardware & Garden Centers, says.
Whereas crab grass should be eliminated prior to its growth, weeds are a post-emergent problem.

“When thick weeds sprout, that’s when you need to put down weed killer,” Frattallone says.

Frattallone recommends Scotts 4-Step Program, which can be found at all Frattallone’s stores.
