Lawn Fertilization and weed control is an important part of a good lawn maintenance program.  Adding fertilizer to your lawn helps maintain the important nutrients needed to maintain a good healthy root system, and color to give you the best looking yard around the neighborhood! It is highly recommend that your turf receives a core aeration every year.


Fertilizing Programs

There are five fertilization programs available, pick and choose as you desire. The recommended amount of  Nitrogen(N) per season applied is around 4 to 5 lbs per 1000 sqft.

SpringSpring Application (1lb N per 1K sq ft) 

Complete balanced granular Fertilizer with micro nutrients or optional, pre-emergent herbicide mixed fertilizer to prevent noxious annual weeds, such as Crabgrass.  This is highly recommended.  You’ve seen how bad Crab grass was summer 2011, most cases the home owner didn’t have the pre-emergent down last Spring.  I didn’t have any Crabgrass!

SummerLate Summer Application (1lb N per 1k sq ft) 

Complete balanced granular fertilizer with micro nutrients or optional, with weed control as in early summer.  



Early Fall Application (1lb N per 1k sq ft) 

Complete balanced granular fertilizer with micro nutrients or optional, with weed control. Please note that this is also the time of year for over seeding and aeration of your lawn, so herbicide would not be used if you chose to do this.   


leafLate Fall Application (1.5 lb N per 1k sq ft w/ increased K) 

Complete balanced granular fertilizer with micro nutrients and increased Potassium or optional, w/weed control . With the onset of winter, the photosynthetic process has reversed from strong leaf development and is now focusing most glucose production to build a stronger root system to store important nutrients and carbohydrates to survive winter, and that’s where this push of added Potassium comes in, aiding in this process building up the roots.
