Standard Turf Treatment Program
Our standard turf care program includes the following applications providing your lawn with the “right stuff at the right time”.
February: Calcium & Lime: We will apply clean, pelletized calcium & lime at a rate to improve and balance the pH of the soil. We will use a combo product that is more effective that lime alone!
March/April: 1st Crabgrass Pre-Emergent and Broadleaf Weed Control: We will apply an application of the former and spray for all actively growing broadleaf weeds. The pre-emergent will block the germination of crabgrass for six to eight weeks.
April: Spring Fertilizer: We will apply a dry application of slow release nitrogen and potassium fertilizer. The moderate release nitrogen will enhance and extend the ability of your lawn to retain its green color longer into the summer months. The potassium will toughen your turf to aid in drought and disease resistance. In addition the fertilizer may contain bio-solids to enhance the microbial activity in your lawn’s soil.
May: 2nd Crabgrass Pre-Emergent and Broadleaf Weed Control: We will apply a second application of the former at a rate to extend control over the development of crabgrass through the summer. In addition we will spray any weeds found.
July: Weed Control: We will specifically treat any weeds found. This application will include specific herbicides for the control of Nutsedge, Buttonweed, and other summer weeds for which there are no pre-emergent controls.
Late August: “Starter”- High Phosphorus, Moderate Nitrogen Fertilizer: We will apply a dry application for high phosphorus, moderate nitrogen fertilizer in advance of, or together with, our aeration and overseeding service. If you do not overseed, this application will be beneficial to your lawn in any case.
October: High Nitrogen, Slow Release Fertilizer: We will apply a dry application for green color and top leaf growth.
December: High Nitrogen, Very Slow Release Fertilizer: We will apply a dry application for continued feeding through winter for early spring green color.
In addition to the above, we offer Core Aeration and Overseeding, and Disease Control Treatments. Please call for details.
