Birds are constantly introducing new seeds to your lawn. These seeds may remain dormant for years waiting for the right conditions to germinate.

The goal of lawn treatment is to minimize weed problems while enhancing the desired turf-grass health and appearance.
Application 1 – Early Spring
Early spring is the time for crabgrass control and the proper amount of fertilizer to ensure proper winter recovery. If you want a green lawn all summer you have to start treatments early.
Application 2 – Spring
In addition to a second application of crabgrass control we are now targeting broadleaf weeds. If needed, another application of fertilizer is applied. Each lawn is taken into careful consideration.
Application 3 – Summer
Constant monitoring of your lawn will tell us if we need to treat for surface insects. If symptoms are present, a surface insecticide will be applied. Then we prepare your lawn for the summer heat strain.
Application 4 – Late Summer
A preventative grub control method is advised during this time. If symptoms are present, we will recommend one of our control methods. Another fertilizer is applied to support color in your lawn for the rest of the year.
Application 5 – Early Fall
Another broadleaf weed control application is applied if necessary. Also, if needed, a specific amount of fertilizer is applied to help recuperate your lawn from the strain of summer heat.
Application 6 – Late Fall
If any broadleaf weeds remain, another application is applied to help prevent re-growth the following year. Also, another specific fertilizer formula is used to encourage root development without plant growth.
Application 7 – Winterizer
A fertilizer blend is applied to stimulate growth and food retention, which is critical for your lawn during the winter months. This application promotes an even greener, healthier lawn, the following spring.
