I will be spot nuking some type of weeds popping up in my dormant bermuda. I did this last year and the bermuda came back.

I do my last cut and raking for the year during Thanksgiving week. By the end of November we often have had snow and the grass is dormant.

I focus upon and make a couple of notes regarding the condition of the lawn, so that in the spring I know what I need to do. I cannot seed in the spring because the pre-emergent will go down. But I will rake, put down some lime in the shaded areas especially, and maybe top dress thin areas.

Another job would be to trim trees and shrubs that block the sun, but now we are getting into obsessive/compulsive lawn care, lol!

Above temps here in the Mid-Atlantic for the next couple days so I will definitely be taking advantage of some spot weed treatment.

I have been in the deep freeze for the last two weeks. Today it got up to 54 where last week the high temperature were in the single digits. The 3" of snow and then ice finally melted yesterday. The trash people even were able to get out for the first time in two weeks.

I spot treated chickweed with weedkiller in December. Most of it was in mulch beds. I was sure if it would work, but the chickweed eventually died. In previous years it would grow though the winter and then sprout seeds in early spring.

My soil temperature has finally started to warm up from the four days of low 20's temperature averages. The five day average is now 38 degrees.

On to stage 3 of my annual lawn programme. All the winter grasses have died off, and Paspalum and couch grass have taken over.

I think I already posted about going from the typical Scott’s granular Weed and Feed method, to the sprayed Sunday Lawn program in 2023.

Hubby is getting older, so likes the ease of spraying, rather than pushing the spreader.

The Sunday Lawn program has no weed component, other than spot weed control for dandelions. They believe if your lawn is robust, it will choke out the weeds. Wrong. The weeds got very bad last year.

Fast forward, we are armed with the best of both worlds for as soon as the temperature warms up, with separate fertilizer and lawn weed killer, for dollar weed and spurge, as well as the usual suspects, and applied through the hose.
