Fertilizer Program

Home lawns can be improved through the proper use of fertilizers. Excessive amounts or the wrong type of fertilizer will not provide an effective treatment for your lawn. The proper amount and scheduling of fertilizer application depends on a variety of factors including the source of nitrogen, soil type, type of turf grass, and weather. For fertilizer and pesticide applications, it pays to hire trained professionals who know when and how to apply these chemicals in a manner safe to you, your neighbors, the plants, and the environment.

The Early Season Treatment provides continued protection for insects and mites as pest pressure and populations attempt to increase. Also, it controls the disease pressure as they head in to the summer months.
LATE SEASON PROTECTION (JULY)*
The Late Season Treatment continues controlling potentially damaging insect populations, while hitting mites hard at their highest populations of the season.
DEEP ROOT FERTILIZATION (OCTOBER- NOVEMBER)*
