A soil test is the only way to determine what exactly is going on in your soil at a molecular level. It gives us the right information to custom design your lawn program and make it ready for your family and pets. We pull several samples from all over your lawn and send them to a certified third-party laboratory to analyze your soil’s pH, macronutrient and micronutrient saturation, organic matter, and cation exchange capacity. We review the results with you and customize a program for your turf based on the data and your preferences.
To maintain a green and healthy lawn and to eliminate brown spots, fertilization should occur throughout the year. Our custom-formulated granular, slow-release treatments enrich the soil with the proper balance of macronutrients to support the blade growth, root development, and cell structure of your grass. Our traditional lawn care program includes pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control for both crabgrass and broadleaf weeds all season long. We also custom-blend Organic Bio-Boosters into our fertilizers at no charge to supercharge the bioactivity in your soil and promote healthy, hardy turf.
PRE-EMERGENT CRABGRASS AND BROADLEAF WEED CONTROL
Prevent weeds before they have a chance to take hold in your lawn with our two free early-season pre-emergents targeting both crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. Specifically formulated for application in cooler temperatures, these treatments will create barriers to hinder the germination and development of common early season weeds while your lawn wakes up from winter dormancy to crowd them out naturally.
GRUB AND SURFACE FEEDING INSECT PREVENTATIVE
We always recommend a Grub Preventative to protect your lawn from reaching the stage where grubs are actively feeding and damaging your lawn’s root system. This treatment is applied in advance of the maturation of white grubs, which are the larvae of pests such as Japanese Beetle, European Chafer, and Oriental Beetle. This treatment also protects against Surface Feeding Insects like Chinch Bugs, Sod Webworms, and Billbugs.
Our fertilizers have a great balance of macronutrients to provide your turf with the key building blocks for a healthy and resilient lawn. Our Bio-Booster is an organic additive custom-blended with the fertilizer to enhance nutrient uptake, unlock valuable micronutrients present in the soil, and stimulate bioactivity which helps promote root development and turf hardiness.
LAWN CARE PROGRAM ENHANCEMENTS
We offer many additional options to enrich your soil and promote a lush and healthy lawn. For instance, you may choose our Traditional Lawn Care program, and then add some of our amendments to take your lawn to the next level. We add Bio-Booster at no charge to your fertilizer, but can also introduce Organic Compost, which will get your lawn brimming with bioactivity. If your Soil Test indicates a pH imbalance, then we can address it with pure Dolomitic Limestone to neutralize acidity and restore it to the proper pH level.
If your lawn has “hot spots” – areas that are susceptible to heat or drought stress – then we have a Moisture Manager to retain moisture in the rootzone of those areas for up to 90 days. And to make your lawn more tolerant to summer and winter stressors like extreme temperatures, our Potassium Booster and Winterizer will make it more resilient.
