Fertilization

Step 1: Pre-emergent: Weed preventer plus slow release fertilizer

This is your crabgrass and weed preventer with a fertilizer that lasts 3-5 months depending how fast it breaks down with precipitation.  Applied around mid-March.

Step 2: Liquid broadleaf weed killer

This will eliminate clover, dandelions, and other broadleaf weeds.  Applied in mid to late-April.

Step 3: Grub control plus fertilizer

This will eliminate any grubs you may have.  Your lawn is more susceptible to grubs if it is regularly irrigated and shaded.  Applied between late-May and mid-June.

Step 4: Liquid broadleaf weed killer

This is another broadleaf weed treatment to eliminate late spring weeds, to kill the weeds that germinated since the last treatment.  Applied in June.

(Optional): Nutsedge Control 

We will treat when the nutsedge is young and actively growing typically in June.  However, it may take several years and  repeat applications to kill all the nutsedge due to its form of reproduction.  Nutsedge reproduces by tubers (nutlets) underground, which can survive in the soil for up to three years. Until these are gone there will be nutsedge.  One application per year is recommended if you have this “weed grass” but you can choose to have us treat more than once per year to speed the process of eliminating it from the yard.

Step 5: Fall slow release fertilizer

This is a fertilizer that helps repair your grass and root system from the harsh heat of the summer.  It also gives the grass plant nutrients that will be stored on its root system for the next time the grass is stressed.  Applied between late August and early September.

Step 6: Winterizer

This fertilizer will help give your grass the needed nutrients to grow its root system during the winter months.  Applied in late-November.
