What do you imagine when the idea of a beautiful yard comes up? Many people would agree that a weed-free, lush green lawn comes into mind. Our goal at FERTILAWN is to provide our customers with this end result. Whether it is a emaculate lawn needing to be maintained with proper nutrients or a lawn needing help through renovation or reseeding, we are here to help.
FERTILAWN has selected high quality products, only available to Turf Care Professionals, that have been thoroughly test for results and safety to both the consumer and the environment. We do not use new products that promise great results unless they have been thoroughly tested with time, end result, and safety to the consumer. The high quality products we use allow us to create beautiful stand of turf in less visits then some other big brand companies. This means a better looking turf with more money in your pocket.
The backbone of any turf program is getting your grass to grow; a healthy, thick stand of turf is your number one defense against weeds. All of our programs include the correct yearly amount of fertilizer for your lawn. Spread at varying times throughout the season, our fertilizer applications will not only increase the color, thickness, and vigor of your lawn, but will help with drought, disease, and pest resistance. No one fertilizer application is the same; depending on the time of the growing season, the amount and type of product will change according to what the grass needs at that time.
Post-Emergent Weed control
Along with fertilizing, controlling the unwanted weed population in your lawn is equally important to a clean, thick stand of turf. Think of your lawn as an ongoing battle between grass and unwanted weeds; they are both fighting for sunlight, water, and food. Taking care of the weeds will give your grass the best chance to thrive. During the growing season, different types of weeds will emerge so its very important to stay on top of them. Just one application will not be enough contol, they need to continually be handled throughout the entire growing season. All of our programs contain ongoing weed control treatments throughout the entire season. Once your weed problems have been suppressed, your lawn will thicken up quicker which intern crowds and shades out the nasty stuff.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control
Ongoing control is only half of it; there are many types of annual weeds that can only be controlled at the beginning of the season. Crabgrass, Annual Bluegrass, and Foxtails are some of the main culprits that need to be addressed early on in the season, before they have time to germinate and grow. Pre-emergents stop these types of weeds from ever before they have a chance to rear their ugly heads. This is one of the reasons most companies will tell you the first spring application is the most important one and we tend to agree. While many companies struggle taking care of these types of weeds, we have perfected it over the last 39 years.
Our Typical Programs
Our Basic Program is excellent for a wide variety of lawns. Offering five applications throughout the growing season, we’ll use a combination of Pre-Emergent and Post-Emergent Broadleaf Weed Control to take care of the nasty stuff. Also included is the seasons worth of fertilizer. Depending of the time of the season, different types and rates of Slow Release Fertilizer will be applied.
The Deluxe Program has all the same great treatments as our Basic Program with the addition of a spring or fall Plug Aeration. Customers who may have problems with thatch, disease, and compaction will benefit greatly from this program. To find out more about this, please visit our page dedicated to Plug Aeration here.
Super Deluxe Program
The Super Deluxe Program is the best program FERTILAWN offers. It combines all that the Basic Program and the Deluxe Program offer with the addition of an Overseed done at the time of the Plug Aeration. This program is geared towards those who want a lush stand of weed-free turf year after year by introducing new grass and grass species into the existing stand of turf.
