Professional Lawn Care Program
Creating and maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn takes more than just regular watering and mowing. It takes a program that addresses every aspect of your lawn's health and growth needs. A beautiful yard is an asset to any home, no matter what the season. Let our professionals take the headache out of your lawn maintenance.
ROUND 1 - Fertilization plus Crabgrass control
Applied in April or early May as soon as spring weather permits. This is an early season formulation of high-quality granular fertilizer plus a pre-emergent weed control that stops crabgrass before it can even get started. This application does not control dandelions or broad leaf weeds.
ROUND 2 – Dandelion and broad leaf weed control
Applied in May – June. This application is done as a liquid treatment. It provides control of dandelions as well as many other weeds.
ROUND 3 – Mid Summer fertilization and broad leaf spot spray
Applied in June – early July. This application consists of a high quality granular slow release fertilizer. This allows the lawn to feed on the fertilizer slowly to maintain a nice green vigor without causing stress to the lawn. Broad leaf weed spot spraying will also performed at this time to control any unsightly weeds missed from the previous application.
ROUND 4 – Late Summer broad leaf control
Applied in August – September. This application is done as a liquid treatment. It provides control of unsightly broad leaf weeds that may have emerged. Nitrogen may be added to help the lawn recover from summer stress.
ROUND 5 – Lawn aeration (optional service)
Provided in mid September – early October. Core aeration creates thousands of new growth zones throughout your lawn by removing 1" to 3" cores of soil. These cores eventually dissolve, helping to speed up the natural process of thatch breakdown. The holes left by aeration make more room for air, fertilizer and water to reach your lawn's roots. After aeration, your lawn will naturally expand toward the open pockets in the soil, resulting in healthier grass with thicker, deeper roots. After a core aeration it is a good time to over-seed your lawn or seed any bare spots.
ROUND 6 – Fall fertilization
Applied from late September through freeze up. This application will be the final application for the season. Fall fertilization prepares your lawn for winter survival by promoting disease resistance, food storage and strong root growth. Fall fertilization also helps get your lawn off to a quicker green up in the spring.

***Aeration can be performed as a standalone service*** See Aeration Below
Core aeration is recommended annual or semiannual for all lawns as part of a good turf maintenance program. Hard, compacted soil and thatch take away your lawn's ability to breathe. Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil 1″ to 3″ in length from your lawn. These cores dissolve back into the lawn after a few rainfalls, mixing with whatever thatch exists on your lawn. This also allows water, air, grass seed and fertilizer to reach the root zones of the soil. Turf roots naturally grow toward these growth pockets resulting in healthier lawn with thicker, deeper roots
If you have been properly watering your lawn and your turf is experiencing excessive run-off, most likely the soil is compacted. Every day use, mowing, and irrigating of your lawn will naturally create compaction. Compacted soils and soils with poor drainage tend to accumulate thatch faster. Compacted soil prevents very important nutrients from reaching the grass root system. Relieving the soil from compaction will instantly give your turf a chance for long-term health. Core aeration will make way for important elements to reach the root zones of the grass. Your lawn needs water and oxygen to promote health. Any deprivation of these elements will be evident when your turf shows signs of stress.
