April Lawn Care Month

April Lawn Care

Early spring is the best time to get a head start on lawn and garden care! As our lawns begin to show, we’re all excited to see lush green grass growing! April is the best, and in some cases, the only time to weed, fertilize, and seed your lawn!

Crabgrass Control & Fertilizing: Late-April to Early-May is the the only time to apply pre-emergent Crabgrass Preventer to your lawn! Shaw Turf Food with Dimension is a professional-grade, dual-purpose product containing both a crabgrass preventer and the appropriate amount of fertilizer to aid in grass growth while creating a healthy, crabgrass-free lawn! Because it is phosphorus-free, this product is safe to apply at lake homes. Available in our retail center for DIY lawn care, the 50lb bag will cover 12,500 sq. ft.

We also provide professional fertilization and lawn care services! Call us at 715-485-3131 to sign up for a fertilization and/or lawn care program that’s right for you!

Watering and Irrigation: As your lawn is uncovered, you may notice winter damage from salt used on driveways and walkways. To restore the health of your soil and grass, flush the area to give your lawn a deep watering once the weather warms. If brown spots persist, apply Gypsum and consider adding seed to those areas.

As grass continues to grow, ensure your lawn receives adequet and consistent moisture. Through our professional landscape services, we install and maintain conventional irrigation systems and lake-pump systems to promote greener, lusher lawns. We also offer irrigation start-up and shut-down services. Call us at 715-485-3131 for more information!

Improving an existing lawn: If you’re looking to thicken your lawn, or will be over-seeding an area, here is a season-long program to enhance and enrich your lawn (pounds mentioned covers 1000 sq. ft.):

  • Late-April – apply 12lbs of Gypsum and 8 Lbs of 15-15-5
  • End of May – apply 5lbs of 15-15-5
  • Mid-July – apply 3lbs of 15-15-5
  • Mid-to-late September – apply 4lbs Winterizer

Growing and maintaining healthy lawns and landscapes is vital for our environment by filtering storm water run-off and improving water quality, reducing air temperatures, and providing essential habitat for wildlife.

We’re looking forward to opening our greenhouse and the arrival of our annuals, hanging baskets, tropicals, and more in late-April! Our trees, shrubs, and perennials will hopefully arrive in early-May! We’re stocking up on our bulk materials for all of your DIY projects including mulch, soil, gravel, and decorative landscape rock. 

Give us a call at 715-485-3131 or visit our website balsamlakeprolawn.com for all of your professional landscape, lawn care, garden center, and floral needs!

From all of us at Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn, we wish you a Happy Spring!

 Call us at 715-485-3131 to sign up for snow plowing services!


Balsam Lake Pro-Lawn is here to help you year-round with your lawn, landscape, garden, and floral needs! Visit our retail center for garden products, houseplants, blooming plants, succulents, gifts, art, arrangements, bouquets, and more!

We wish everyone a safe and happy Autumn, Boss’s Day, and Halloween!


September marks the last of summer and the start of fall! Enjoy sunny days, cooler weather, colorful autumn blooms, and changing leaves! Make the best of these beautiful times!

Our garden center is full of blooms for some pop of color in fall! Late-flowering perennials like echinacea, sedum, grasses, hardy mums, and hydrangea shrubs provide your garden with long-lasting color and season-long interest. We also have a huge variety of beautiful annual mums available! They make great gifts and add a welcoming touch to your home and outdoor spaces! 

If you’re planning a Labor Day BBQ, or a late-season outdoor gathering, spice things up with Smokin’ Brother’s famous wood BBQ pellets and their delicious BBQ sauces and seasonings!


With the cooler temperatures and wetter weather, it’s the perfect time for landscape projects like planting, mulching, and pruning! Get those perennials, shrubs and trees into the ground now, so they’ll be all set to grow in the spring! Come in and check out our wide variety of autumn shade trees and fruit trees including apple trees, cherry trees, and plum trees! Now is also a great time to add mulch to your landscaping, helping to spruce your gardens up and protect your plants over the winter. We’ve also got a wonderful variety of bagged and bulk mulch! Fall is the best time to prune your shrubs to keep them tidy for next year. If you’d like to deadhead your perennials and grasses, you could do that, too. Or, keep the foliage and seeds standing as habitat for nature and added year-long garden interest.

September lawn-care is an important process to keep your lawns lush and healthy! Aerate your lawns to loosen the soil, prevent soil compaction, get air into the grass root zone, and prep for over-seeding. Grass seed grows best in cooler, wetter weather, so over-seed now to fill in those bare spots and thicken up your lawn. September into October is the ideal time to apply winterizer, which adds nutrients to your lawn and prepares it for winter dormancy. We sell grass seed and winterizer for those DIY projects, or call us at 715-485-3131 to sign up for our professional services!
