Lawn fertilizers give grass the strength it needs to grow healthy and fight off diseases and pests. It's a vital step in your lawn care routine and should be done every year.

What are the seven steps to our turf care fertilization program?

Our 7-step turf care program covers all the bases for ensuring your grass stays bright green and free of weeds. We use a combination of fast and slow-release granular fertilizers mixed with high-quality liquid herbicides to control the weeds. This ensures our fertilization treatments provide the best results possible for your lawn across every square inch of your property!

Below is a layout of what times of the year we perform the fertilization treatments and which herbicides are included in the applications.

Step 1 (Feb 1st-Mar 31st)

A granular fertilizer is applied to give your lawn a nice green color after it comes out of winter dormancy. It also contains an herbicide solution to help prevent annual grassy weeds like crabgrass and foxtail from emerging.

Step 2 (Apr 1st-Jun 15th)

Your lawn receives a blanket spray with a liquid weed controller along with granular fertilizer and a second round of pre-emergent. This is to control even more spring and summer weeds like dandelions, clovers, and other broadleaf weeds.

Step 3 (Jun 16th-Jul 31st)

Our early summer fertilization application involves another granular solution. Any weed growth seen in your yard will also be given a spot treatment. Properties struggling with nutgrass can be treated by our team during this time as well.

Step 4 (Jun 16th-Jul 31st)

Granular grub control applications will be performed the same day as the early summer fertilization treatment. This helps keep grubs out of your lawn all season long!

Step 5 (Jul 15th- Aug 31)

This late-summer insecticide application helps control surface-feeding insects like sod webworms, ants, fleas, and ticks. Weeds and nutgrass growth will also be spot treated with our liquid herbicide.

Step 6 (Sep 1st-Oct 31)

The hot summer weather is tough on your grass. Our fall granular fertilizer helps rebuild your turf and make it strong enough to withstand the upcoming cooler temperatures. We also spot treat for broadleaf weeds and nutgrass.

Step 7 (Nov 4th- Dec 15th)

As your lawn prepares to go into winter dormancy, it's important that it has enough nourishment to survive until spring. We use a granular fertilizer that will build up your lawn's food reserve so it continues to stay healthy even in freezing temperatures. This final application also ensures your grass will green up earlier in spring with better color and deeper roots.

Why are fertilization treatments such a necessary service in lawn care?

Your lawn needs the right amount of nutrients and plenty of water to grow healthy and keep its emerald green coloring. Fertilizer treatments are chock-full of nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorous; all the nutrients your grass is already absorbing from the soil.

This nutrient balance is key for grass to maintain its appearance and make it more resilient to diseases and insect infestations. Without a yearly fertilization program, there's a strong possibility that you'll have to deal with replacing your lawn in the future.
