8 STEPS TO A HEALTHY LAWN
Spend your time enjoying your beautiful lawn rather than working on it! Our eight step program is designed to keep your lawn green, healthy and weed free all year long. We treat your lawn every six weeks for a total of eight service treatments. We use the highest quality materials and apply them at a heavier rate than most other companies. 100% Satisfaction guaranteed.
Step 1: An early spring pre-emergent with broadleaf weed control eliminates spring weeds.
Step 2: A spring pre-emergent for broadleaf weed control is applied along with crabgrass preventer and a nitrogen fertilizer to provide your lawn with the nutrients it needs while waking up from winter.
Steps 3-6: Through summer, we apply a slow release nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizer for health and color along with weed treatments for any visible weeds. These treatments help promote healthy roots which are crucial during the hot, dry summer months.
Step 7: A fall pre-emergent with broadleaf weed control along with potassium for a healthy root system help protect your lawn as it goes dormant in the winter months.
Step 8: A winter pre-emergent prevents unwanted winter weeds along with potassium fertilization for a healthy root system.
ABOUT PRE-EMERGENT WEED CONTROL
Pre-emergent weed control is applied to prevent crabgrass and controllable broadleaf weeds. Pre-emergents do not prevent grassy weeds such as Dallisgrass, Johnson Grass or Nutsedge from emerging in your lawn.
Control of Dallisgrass
Dallisgrass is a deep-rooted bunchgrass that spreads through underground rhizomes and seeds. It prefers warm, moist areas and begins growth in early spring, readily invading lawns. Dallisgrass is a very difficult weed to control as grassy weeds are not affected by pre-emergents. Hand-pulling Dallisgrass doesn’t eliminate this weed, because some of the rhizomes will be left in the soil to grow back. Dallisgrass forms star-shaped clumps with long, coarse leaves and tall seed stalks. It usually takes 1-3 treatments and the affected area will turn yellow or brown temporarily. There is an additional charge if the infestation is moderate to heavy.
Control of Nutsedge
Nutsedge, also known as Nutgrass, is a difficult weed to control as pre-emergents do not prevent germination. This tough, perennial grass-like weed seeks out moist, poorly drained sections of your yard. Nutgrass grows faster in hot weather and can only be treated when it appears. This is because Nutsedge grows from tiny tubers 8-14 inches deep in the soil. It can only be treated in very warm months as the chemical will not affect Nutsedge in cold temperatures. The key to treatment is repeated applications – usually, 2 to 3 treatments are necessary – heavy infestations may require more treatments. There is an additional charge for control of nutsedge if an infestation is moderate to heavy.
