Fertilization & Weed Control
We use a higher quality fertilizer than our competitors use or the DIY stores offer, resulting in a healthier lawn as seen above… you can see the difference! We use an enhanced efficiency 65% slow release granular, phosphorus free, fertilizer blended.
Why is it important to you?
There are three advantages to 65% slow-release nitrogen:
- The nitrogen is made available to the plant as the plant needs it, over an 8-week period. With a fast release granular, or worse a liquid fertilizer, it’s either feast or famine for your grass
- Since the fertilizer is used gradually, very little is wasted.
- It is safer for your lawn, you pets, your kids, and you.
Some competitors and DIY stores advertise slow release fertilizer, but when you check the fine print on their disclosure labels, it is usually 5% or less slow release fertilizer. Some of our competitors only apply one slow release application, and use fast release liquid fertilizers for the remaining applications, because it is cheaper. Whether liquid or granular, fast release fertilizers release the nitrogen into your lawn in 7 to 10 days. Although this causes the grass to turn green quickly, this fast growth causes stress on the grass plant making to susceptible to weeds, insects, and disease.
It is really important to understand that fertilizer is the “food” for your lawn.
Fertilizer quality and price vary from “Junk Food” to “Good Food”, just like human food.
Lawns require “GOOD” fertilizer to maintain health and vigor.
A well-fertilized lawn will be better at preventing weed infestation as well as drought and disease.
Lawns that are thick and healthy can help the environment by producing oxygen, filtering and enhancing ground water quality, cooling the air during hot weather, trapping and absorbing urban dust and pollution.
