WHY FERTILIZE YOUR LAWN?
With routine fertilizer applications, lawns thrive during the entire growing season. Fertilization helps reduce weeds, recover from pests and foot traffic, and promote root growth. Most importantly, it replaces and replenishes essential nutrients that soil loses throughout the year, acting as your lawn’s “food”, together with sunshine and water. With this combination, turfgrass grows stronger and faster.
THE BEST FERTILIZATION PRODUCT
We only use MESA treated products, which is the best fertilizer currently on the market. It protects groundwater by not allowing nutrients to leech, breaks down uniformly for a longer nitrogen release, provides a consistently green color, and does not cause surge growth.
With MESA Treated
Green is dark in color and lawn is thick
Without MESA Treated
Green is light in color, and lawn is not as thick
The Best Times To Fertilize
Early Spring: A combined first application of fertilizer and pre-emergent crabgrass control, this slow-release fertilization helps jump-start your lawn after Winter. As temperatures begin to rise, these necessary nutrients support a quick green-up and strong, healthy root system for the upcoming growing season.
Late Spring: Another balanced, slow-release application (along with grub control) continues to build a strong root system for turfgrass, and helps sustain a deep green color throughout the Summer months. A second, FREE crabgrass treatment is applied too, to control weed growth.
Early Summer: Fertilizer’s key nutrient, Potassium, is applied to help stabilize grass through the Summer, increase drought tolerance and decrease the chance of wilting. We will continue to control weeds post-emergently, and provide a FREE surface insect treatment for webworms, chinch bugs and more.
Late Summer: This is a Lime application that includes calcium to sustain your lawn’s color and strength, by maintaining the lawn’s pH level. A weed control treatment is applied again at this time.
Fall: The last fertilization of the growing season comprises a specially-designed ratio of Potassium and Nitrogen elements. This promotes healthy color and vigor in the lawn and helps store the right amount of carbohydrates in the plant for Winter months. Another weed control treatment is applied at this time.
