6-Step PLUS Lawn Program
Fertilization & Weed Control Applications
Our 6-Step PLUS Lawn Program is time tested and continually improved to produce and manage a healthy, green lawn.
Using custom blended granular, slow-release fertilizer, liquid aeration & de-thatch, grub preventative, pre & post-emergent crabgrass control, and liquid weed killer.
Step 1 Early Spring
The early spring application will enrich the soil, promote spring green-up and recovery from the winter season. Preventative crabgrass control is also included in this application. Broadleaf weed killer will be applied as weather and temperature allow.
Step 2 Spring
During this prime growing season, we will apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer blend. It will help promote root growth, color, vigor, and overall good health.
A blanket application of a broadleaf weed killer is also applied on this visit to rid the lawn of common weeds.
Your Liquid Aeration would be applied at this time to help with soil, root, and overall plant health.
Step 3 Late Spring/Early Summer
To help prepare your lawn for the summer months we will apply a slow-release, granular fertilizer, along with surface feeding insecticide as needed.
Your Liquid De-Thatch & Grub Preventative will be applied on this or the next visit, depending on timing and weather conditions.
We will also watch for weeds and any other problems that may need attention.
Step 4 Summer
We will apply a blanket application of surface insecticide, which will help protect your lawn from surface feeding insects such as cutworm, armyworm, sod webworm, and chinch bugs. These insects can do severe damage and go undetected during stressful Summer conditions.
Any weed, crabgrass, or sedge present will also be sprayed.
If the weather and rain/watering are appropriate a slow-release fertilizer will be applied to help the lawn cope with drought, disease.
We will be monitoring for Grub activity.
Step 5 Late Summer/Early Fall
Our autumn fertilizer is formulated to aid in the recovery of damage that may have occurred during summer stress periods. As well as continue to feed the lawn to encourage color, vigor, and overall health.
We will continue to monitor for any problems as well as treat for weeds and insects as needed.
Step 6 Late Fall
This granular fertilizer application is one of the most beneficial applications of the year. It will winterize your lawn by helping with root development as your lawn goes into dormancy. The application also aids in promoting an emerging healthy, green lawn the following spring.
We will be glad to stop by between normal visits if you have questions or concerns about your lawn.
