Our Lawn Care Program
Our 7-application Lawn Care Program is an ongoing service, it continues from season to season. We offer a full program of weed, fungus, insect control and fertilization. Each application is done approximately 6-8 weeks apart. We will notify you by mail or email about a week in advance of all applications. The products are safe for people and pets, the only thing we ask is you and your family and pets stay off the lawn until it is dry. This insures there is no adverse reaction to the products. Below is a description of the 3 different treatments we do throughout the year.
Benefits of Fertilizing
Fertilizing your lawn is a very important step to not only helping your grass grow, but also to encourage natural weed control. As the grass thickens and grows, it can actually smother out weeds. Thin lawns or lawns with bare patches are prone to weed problems, thick and lush lawns will cover in those bare or thinned areas so the weed seeds don't have such easy access to the soil.
There are some people who choose not to take the fertilizer applications; however, unless you are going to fertilize yourself, we do not advise skipping those treatments. We fertilize in the late spring, thru the summer, and into early fall with balanced fertilizers with iron and micronutrients. During every regular application treatment we evaluate your lawn and treat weeds. The summer applications have insecticides for lawn destroying insects such as chinch bugs and during the spring and fall we treat for brown patch fungus.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control
The job of the pre-emergent is to prevent weeds from ever coming up; however, this prevention doesn't last forever. Pre-emergents have been formulated to target crabgrass, broadleaf and some grassy weeds, but there are no reliable formulas (other than non-selective herbicides) for preventing some weeds like dallisgrass, johnsongrass, nutgrass, and a few other reoccurring weeds.
Post Emergent Weed Control
The job of a post-emergent is to kill the weeds that are already growing in your lawn. Every time we make an application to your lawn, we spot-treat the weeds that are present with the most up to date formulas available. Be sure to keep weeds mowed so they don't have a chance to produce more weed seeds.
Along with our main Lawn Care Program we offer additional programs to make your lawn as beautiful as possible. Just like the lawn care program, the cost for these additional services is based on the treatment area. Contact the office for more information.
Tree and Shrub Program
When trees and shrubs are stressed, they are more vulnerable to insect damage and disease. Improper cutting or pruning as well as nature related breaks and scarring can create areas of the tree or shrub where bacteria and insects can penetrate the vital organs of the growing system. Without proper treatment, these defects can cause un-repairable damage. Our fertilization program with insect and disease control will aid in the healing of your plants. Don't lose your expensive investment to an insect or disease, restore the health and natural beauty of your plants with our 4-application program.
ALL APPLICATIONS ARE SAFE FOR PEOPLE AND PETS!
Create a bug barrier by applying insecticides 4 times a year around the foundation of the house. This helps protect your house from spiders, crickets, ants and other bugs and insects from entering.
Flea and Tick Control
We will treat your entire lawn- killing any fleas and ticks present, then 7-14 days later; we will come back and kill the newly hatched fleas and ticks. Generally 2 applications is all that is required to get rid of the fleas and ticks, however, if within 30 days of the 2nd applications you still have a problem, call the office and we will retreat.
Fire Ant Control
Can Fire Ants Be Eliminated?
All of the research shows that in order to achieve maximum fire ant control, the area must be treated three times a year. We do three Fire Ant applications per year: Spring, Summer and Fall. When you take all three applications, if you have mounds that come up during the year we will retreat them at no additional cost.
Call today to start your Fire Ant Program.
Liquid Lawn Aeration
This treatment helps to loosen compacted, hard pan and clay soils without the unsightly damage that occurs with mechanical core aeration. Our formula also has Humic acid (liquid humus) and Kelp. These are two of the best soil biodeactivators which provide numerous trace elements and growth stimulants to help generate and feed beneficial soil building microbes. You will see improvement in drainage and rooting as well as plant health with this soil conditioning application.
Lime applications are needed if your soil PH is high or too acid. Lime neutralizes the acidity and balances the PH so that the fertilizer's iron and micro-nutrients are made available to your grass. If you haven't seen any results from lawn fertilization it is most probably due to the acidity of your soil. We have PH meters and will check it for you.
Spring Start-up. Run thru all zones checking, adjusting and verifying coverage and operating status. Repair leaks, replace heads, add heads, and adjust and or set controllers.
Summer System Check-up. Make sure system is running at peak performance. Adjust controller timers as needed to ensure each zone is getting proper coverage and enough water. Make repairs as needed.
Winterizing System. In the Fall we winterize the system and turn off controller. We also provide priority scheduling during the year when emergency visits and repair work is needed.
Pre-Emerge Weed Control for Planting Beds
One application in the Spring and one application in the Fall will help control unsightly weeds in Shrub and flower beds. The Spring treatment is for summer weeds and the Fall treatment is for winter weeds.
