Lawn Fertilization Program

img-machineryOur fertilizer program consists of multiple applications per year. Based on your particular landscape we will put together a customized program that best fits your needs.

Ongoing fertilization of an established lawn keeps the lawn looking good and reduces how much you have to water and control weed, insect, and disease pests. This saves you money and is environmentally responsible.

Benefits of Using a Fertilizer Program Include:

  • Healthy lawns provide aesthetic, recreational, and environmental benefits.
  • A well-maintained lawn and landscape significantly increase your property value and can build a strong source of community pride.
  • Properly fertilized lawns better tolerate stresses such as heat, drought, and cold.

Applying the right fertilizer at the correct time helps turf plants accumulate and store the essential plant foods (sugars/carbohydrates) that are used for growth and development.

Dense, healthy, properly fertilized lawns require fewer pesticides to manage weeds, diseases, and insects. Lawns receiving periodic fertilization also help protect water quality by substantially reducing water runoff and potential soil losses.

Additional Lawn Treatments Include:

  • Core aeration
  • Soil testing
  • Specific disease control
  • Pest and insect treatment

Unfertilized lawns will gradually lose density. When that happens, undesirable grasses, such as crabgrass, and broadleaf weeds, like dandelion and clover, encroach and the risk for soil erosion increases. In addition, malnourished turf grasses are more prone to damage from diseases and insects.

Tree & Shrub Fertilization Program

Fertilization is a very important component of plant health care as it is necessary to supplement naturally-occurring, essential mineral elements in the soil that maintain an optimum supply for plant growth. For these reasons, periodic applications of fertilizer to ornamental trees and shrubs are needed to replenish essential mineral elements and to promote healthy growth.

Nutrient Deficiency in Trees and Shrubs

Trees and shrubs growing in their natural habitats rarely display symptoms of nutrient deficiency. This is due not only to the natural recycling of nutrients that occurs in nature, but also to the fact that plants in the wild typically grow only where they are best adapted or have a competitive advantage.

Nursery, street tree, and landscape plantings are, for the most part, an artificial habitat. Soils may be vastly different from those of the native habitat of a given plant, and nutrient recycling systems may be altered or diminished as a result of planting schemes (planting in turf areas) or maintenance practices (collection of fallen leaves).

Additional Tree & Shrub Treatments Include:

  • Deep Root Feeding
  • Tree Injections
  • Supplement Treatments
