Organic-Based Fertilization Program

First, a complete soil analysis will help identify any nutrient deficiencies or pH problems that may exist, determining how to best treat your lawn. In the absence of adjustments, our standard fertilization program is as follows:

MAY Broadleaf Weed Control and Crabgrass Pre-emergent Application

Timing of this application is critical in suppressing crabgrass seed germination. Equally important is the eradication of weeds that may have invaded the lawn during the previous growing season. While we use pesticides in a curative role, experience has shown that this combination application is important to lawn quality.

JUNE Organic Based Lawn Fertilizer Application

A controlled release organic based fertilizer applied in June will continue to feed your lawn for three months. A fully organic product (100%) can be substituted, but at a higher price point.

JULY & OCTOBER Lawn Inspection

Inspection for insects and/or disease. After notification and following your approval, necessary corrective action is taken.

AUGUST Aeration

SEPTEMBER Organic Based Lawn Fertilizer & Broadleaf Weed Control Application

The second (and most important) controlled release organic based fertilizer application is performed helping your lawn to recover from the stresses of the long hot summer. Treatment for broadleaf weeds that may have developed during the summer occurs at this time.

PEST CONTROL Integrated Pest Management

IPM is defined as “a process consisting of the balanced use of cultural, biological, and chemical procedures that are environmentally feasible, and socially acceptable to reduce pest populations to tolerable levels.”

Knowledge of both pests and plants—and the monitoring of each—is critical to landscape health. Proper management practices (fertilizing, mowing, watering, and aeration) greatly reduce pest problems.

In accordance with our IPM approach, pesticides are used only when insect and/or disease levels reach intolerable levels.

Early intervention allows for fewer pesticides and reduces our impact on the environment.
