The air and ground temp needs to be 50° and rising and above 50° atleast for 8 hrs after applying. We already had a few cold nights in the 30s but 70s or 80s during the day. We hoping to finish this month and be done. Once it starts getting to the 30s everynight and only 50s during the day then the ground starts cooling.

Just finished for season. Every night has chance or does have frost lately so advised all customers to wait till may. All are good to know there parking lots are done in best condition and not just squeezed for a buck.
