Lawn Care

Our Program

1 EARLY SPRING – Special blend of fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicide. Our fertilizer will aid in bringing your lawn out of its winter dormancy. The pre-emergent will protect against crabgrass and foxtail.

2 SPRING – Balanced fertilizer and broadleaf weed control. Early season weeds such as, dandelions, clover, henbit, and chickweed will be controlled.

3 EARLY SUMMER – Balanced fertilizer and broadleaf weed control. Summer months produce hard to control weeds. Our special broadleaf weed control treatment will handle these nuisance weeds.

4 LATE SUMMER – Slow release fertilizer, broadleaf weed control, and surface insect control as needed. This is the time of year we will watch for and treat destructive insects as they appear.

5 EARLY FALL – Balanced fertilizer and broadleaf weed control. This important treatment will aid lawns in recovering from summer heat stress.

6 LATE FALL – Special blend of fertilizer to promote root development and aid in an early spring green-up.

Additional Services

GRUB CONTROL – Treatment needs to be applied as grubs are hatching out. This will destroy them before they are able to damage your lawn. Grub control is recommended as a part of a complete lawn program.

DISEASE TREATMENT – Diseases can destroy lawns in a short period of time. Most serious disease problems occur in hot, humid conditions. If you notice brown patches in the heat of the summer, call us immediately so they can be treated. Aeration – Core aeration is a mechanical process of pulling soil cores. This helps to break down thatch and allows air and moisture deeper into the soil. This creates an ideal environment for root development.

AERATION / OVER-SEEDING – Core aeration followed by over-seeding using improved cultivars of turf seed will thicken your lawn. The introduction of new grass plants invigorates your lawn.

SLICE SEEDING – This method of seeding is recommended when very thin, sparse areas are present. The slice seeder cuts furrows and deposits seed directly into the soil. Germination rate is 90% and lawns can be restored quickly.

You Can Help!

MOWING – To keep your lawn looking its best, never remove more than 1/3 of the grass blade. You should alternate directions with each cut. Make sure the mower blade is sharp. A dull blade rips and shreds the grass-blade causing the tips to brown. You should always mow at the highest setting possible (3”-3 ½”).

WATERING – Your lawn should receive 1” to 1 ½” of water per week. Heavy deep watering once or twice a week is much better than frequent light waterings. The best time of the day to water is very early in the morning. Evening watering will promote disease problems. During the hot, dry summer months it’s a good idea to water the day before you mow.
