Georgia Lawns

I need some advice. I am managing 6 lawns in my subdivision and I want to make sure I am doing the right thing. Its Bermuda grass and I am debating on whether I should do a pre emergent now or in the coming weeks.

My first question. Do I scalp the yards and then apply the pre emergent?

How long after should I start to fertilize? Is there a time table to apply fertilizer?

There are so many brands to choose, what brand have you had luck with?

Pre-M now, Scalp in a month. Fertilize when 70-80% green. Lesco 100% slow release will work great for you that or One app fertilizer applied now.

Also make sure you are licensed to apply lawn chemicals...

OP: Regardless if your licensed or not, rain is forecasted for us on sat. Take full advantage to get the pre pushed into the soil.
