Basic Lawn Care Program

 

Our Basic Lawn Care Program can be altered to fit your budget.

We are only on your lawn 6 times for a total of 8 applications (exception: free service calls and optional services).

1. EARLY SPRING

Granular Fertilizer: This is a pre-emergent crabgrass control.

2. LATE SPRING

Two Applications
1st – Granular Fertilizer: This is a post-emergent crabgrass control.
2nd – Blanket Broadleaf Weed Control: Granular or Liquid (Chickweed, Clover, Dandelion, etc).

3. EARLY SUMMER

Granular Grub Control and Fertilizer: This will control grubs, which feed on the root system of your grass. The fertilizer will get your lawn off to a good start before the summer heat arrives.

Grub control is FREE with round 3 service. Other company’s charge extra for grub control and hand out two invoices at this time. Not us.

4. LATE SUMMER

Granular Fertilizer with Insect Control: (Insect control is optional) Or you will receive a Weed Control with a Liquid Crabgrass Killer.

The condition of your lawn will determine which maintenance application you will receive. (It will be determined by your Certified Applicator)

5. EARLY FALL

Two Applications
1st – Granular Fertilizer: A healthy feeding that will help your lawn recover from the summer stress.
2nd – Blanket Broadleaf Weed Control: Granular or Liquid: (Chickweed, Clover, Dandelion, etc). This weed control treatment also reduces weeds come spring.

6. LATE FALL

Granular Winterized Fertilizer: It concentrates below the soil, strengthening root systems and developing plant hardiness.

It prepares your lawn for the start of the next growing season. This is a very beneficial application.

Why Do We Prefer Granular Fertilizer?

Granular fertilizer feeds the grass slowly and evenly and won’t wash away. Spraying liquid fertilizer never completely gets down to the roots and can stick on blades of grass and evaporate or even burn. Liquid can also move too rapidly through the soil and be wasted.

All granule used is a slow release and is coated so it will not burn your lawn out during the summer months.

Optional Services

Spring or Fall Core Aeration / Seeding / Starter Fertilizer

Mechanical process reduces compaction of soil allowing more oxygen to the root system to spur new seed germination.

The Starter fertilizer is to help the seed germinate quicker and healthier. Aeration and seeding is recommended in the fall.

Granular Limestone

Lime neutralizes the pH level of your soil and in return conditions and promotes growth in the soil. This is necessary for keeping a healthy green lawn and for planting new grass seed.  An optimal pH is 6.8-7.0.

Most soil in the Delaware County area is too acidic. Lime can be applied at any time of the year as long as the ground is not frozen. It adds essential calcium and will not burn your grass (100% natural).

**This is a granular lime. not the white powered lime**

Flea and Tick Control (April – Nov.)

Fleas and ticks can infest any lawn. They can bite people, live on a pet, and transmit diseases. Many people are allergic to flea and tick bites, and almost everyone experiences severe itching and painful irritation when bitten.

Fleas and ticks are also hard to control. That’s why our flea and tick treatment generally involves more than one application.

The first application reduces active fleas, ticks, and most other surface insects. Additional applications may be necessary for continued control as eggs and larvae hatch later on. Treatments are effective for 25-30 days. (June-July-Aug are key months for this service)

Lot Spraying

Weed Control by spraying herbicide or Round-up to eliminate weeds coming up through the asphalt or along the curb line.

Depending on your property this may include fence and perimeter maintenance to ensure brush and weeds are not encroaching in on lot space or damaging fences.

Perimeter Pest Control

If you don’t have pest problems now, you will, it’s inevitable. Pests are attracted to your home for food, water and shelter.

The key to an effective pest control program is preventing them from entering your home.

Our certified technicians spray a liquid insect control around the perimeter of your home. We spray 4 feet up the foundation and 2 feet on the ground resulting in a protective barrier to prevent insects from entering your home. Don’t let bugs and insects move into your home!

What You Can Expect From Competitors

  • Water down products to save money. This results in multiple service calls. (Weeds)
  • Using cheap products at a low rate. (Problems with crabgrass, Grubs and disease)
  • Applying applications in poor weather. Causing liquid chemicals (if applied) to dilute and not be as effective.
  • Sales tactics. Promising you an organic base lawn care program. If they claim this, I would ask to see a LABEL. Make them prove it. They use the word organic to miss lead home owners into signing up for service.
  • Time on a property. It’s all about getting to the next lawn with big companies. Which leads to missing areas and mistakes. (missing weeds, leaving gates open)

We are not saying every company out there does these things. But the way your lawn looks can speak volume. If they tell you they are the best or organic based, etc. Make sure they prove it. Saying it and doing it are two different things. We pride ourselves on saying it and backing it up.

Lawn Diseases & Care Tips

Caring For a Seeded Lawn

Whether you’ve had your lawn overseeded, or have opted for a more extensive lawn renovation, proper care after planting is critical to giving your new grass the best chance for success.

Mowing Your Lawn

Do not cut your lawn when it is wet. It is best to cut your lawn in the late afternoon after the morning dew has dried out. Taller grass grows deeper roots, which can reach moisture further down in the soil.

Watering Your Lawn

Always water your lawn in the early morning between the hours of 5am and 9am. This gives your lawn sufficient time to dry out by evening, when wet lawns are susceptible to fungal diseases.

Dog Spot

Dog urine burn is commonly mistaken for a turf grass disease. When your pet urinates on your lawn, the grass can burn out and yellowish dead spots may appear due to the high levels of nitrogen in their urine.

Rust

Rust is a fungal disease that causes lawns to appear yellow or orange when viewed from a distance. Powdery orange spores are produced on slow growing turf, favored by factors such as summer heat, drought stress and low fertility.

Red Thread and Pink Patch

Red thread and pink patch are diseases that attack Kentucky bluegrass, fescues, ryegrass and bentgrass. These diseases are active during the cool, moist periods of the year, causing distinct-to-irregular discolored patches to develop in lawns.
