We begin fertilizing your lawn in early spring, continue in the summer, and apply the final treatment in late fall
We provide a balanced fertilization/weed control program to maintain your turf.
The Green Up Program:
1. Crabgrass pre-emergent with fertilizer
2. Spring Broadleaf Weed Control
3. Early Summer Fertilizer (50% slow release) also season long grub control
4. Fall Fertilizer
5. Fall Broadleaf Weed Control
6. Winterizer (late fall fertilizer)
The Green Up program is based on the recommendations of The Ohio State University Turfgrass Program. The fertility/weed control program's goal is cost efficiency, and high quality results that are friendly to our environment. Also, keep in mind, the Green Up program is only one aspect of healthy turf. Weather, irrigation, mowing practices, and your soil quality will all have a large impact on your lawn, and problems in any of these areas can offset the best programs' efforts.
For example, if your soil is heavily compacted clay, your turfgrass color will be poor through hot weather no matter how much you fertilize and water. Lawn disease and insects are less common and cannot be prevented in a cost effective manner. If these type of problems arise, we can provide you with treatment options and their cost.
