Lawn fertilizing

Four lawn applications are offered per year. Spring, early Summer, late Summer and Autumn. High grade fertilizer with various formulations optimized to the timing of the application and needs of the lawn will be applied. Slow release granular fertilizer is used as it lasts longer and has a much lower burn potential for your lawn.

Weed control

Liquid selective weed control is applied along with lawn fertilizer but only as needed. No more than two complete coverage sprayings will occur per year. Spot spraying is preferred as it only applies what is necessary for the job at hand.

The Spring fertilizer application includes pre-emergent summer annual control. A commonly known summer annual is crabgrass which can be prevented by pre-emergents and not scalping the lawn.

Lawn insect and disease control

Lawn problems will be diagnosed and a treatment offered. Both preventative and curative measures will be employed. Grub control is offered with the early Summer fertilizer application.

Lawn Aeration

There are many benefits to core aeration including lessening soil compaction, controlling thatch build up, increasing water and nutrient uptake, improving rooting, increasing heat and drought stress tolerance, etc.

Aeration can be performed at any time in the growing season as long as the soil is moist enough for tine penetration.
