Quality Soil Nutrition, Optimal Timing
Lawn maintenance that produces great results requires attention to detail and proper timing. Your Integrated Lawn Care maintenance program starts with balanced fertilizers with slow-release nutrient sources that encourage controlled, healthy growth.
- In the spring, early green-up is achieved through soil nutrition chosen to increase root and shoot density and enhance turf vigor. Your lawn is fortified in preparation for summer heat and drought.
- Summer applications promote root expansion and storage of carbohydrates in the grass plants. Healthy roots can better absorb water – especially important during hot, dry summer weather.
- Early fall applications of controlled release fertilizers help the turf recover from summer conditions while improving grass color, thickening the lawn, and feeding the plants as they develop new growth. Nutrition applied later in the fall helps maintain the lawn’s color and thickness, while it stimulates root growth that will be the foundation of next year’s lawn. This healthier, thicker lawn will also help reduce the weed competition that happens during the fall, resulting in a greener lawn in the spring.
Weed Control Treatments
The Integrated Lawn Care program includes preventive crabgrass treatments, and selective spot treatments for broadleaf weeds where needed, based upon seasonal timing.
Programs can be customized to include select treatments for diseases and insects such as grubs, mites, and mole crickets.
