Fertilization & Weed Control
Just like people, lawns and landscapes also need nourishment to grow and develop healthily. Spreading fertilizers on your property sometimes can do more harm than good as any fertilization plan has to take into account many factors:
- The soil’s pH and fertilization needs – our company will perform a soil test to understand your soil’s chemical makeup to tailor proper fertilization programs. It’s also the law!
- The vegetation growing on your property – while turf needs certain types of fertilizers applied at certain times, flowers and trees need other substances too.
- Lawn programs can’t be implemented regardless of the season – specialized companies know what the best times for adding nutrients to your soil are and when substances and chemicals should be kept as far away from your turf as possible.
- Other factors to consider – We also see many miscellaneous factors that influence your lawn’s health and appearance. Pets, foot traffic, dense shade, soil compaction, improper drainage, utility repair company messes, and the list goes on. We address these concerns prior to fine tuning your lawn program.
Fertilization is a crucial step in any lawn maintenance program, and it is complementary to other lawn care services:
- Flower bed maintenance: fertilization is a key aspect of maintaining all your flower/vegetation beds in full health.
- Lawn care: a lush lawn needs to be properly nourished to keep its strength and vibrant green color.
- Weed control: fertilization and weed control are parts of the same puzzle. The better the turf is nourished, the poorer the weeds’ access to the same nutrients, water, and sun rays. On the contrary, lawns that are inadequately nourished leave room for weeds to grow.
