LAWN FERTILIZATION PROGRAM
Green Side Up’s lawn fertilization and weed control program consists of 6 visits to your property to apply fertilizer and weed controls. While we are there we will diagnose any disease or insect activity and any other perils that may affect your lawn. Green Side Up will provide complete instructions and details of all products applied to your lawn along with safety measures. Green Side Up will also give you a newsletter detailing anything Green Side Up feels you should know pertaining to the season.
Below is a detailed description of our Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control program:
First Application (late winter to early spring)
This application is designed to control crabgrass breakthrough as well as provide fertilizer and the nutrients needed at this time of year. (This is a granular application)
*To properly control crabgrass all seeding should be done in the fall*
Second Application (early to mid spring)
This application is designed to eliminate any weed population present as well as provide the proper fertilization and nutrients necessary at this time of year. State regulations allow us to completely treat a lawn for weeds only one time in the spring. Therefore, it is crucial for all weeds to surface so they can be effectively eliminated. (This application is normally all liquid)
Third Application (late spring to early summer)
This application is designed to spot control any post emergence of weeds and provide fertilization and nutrients necessary at this time of year. It is extremely important for you the home owner to be on the look out for any discoloration or area of concern with your lawn as we are entering into disease and insect season. (This application can be granular or liquid)
*With this application we normally apply all Grub Controls*
Fourth Application (mid to late summer)
This application is designed to spot control any post emergence of weeds and provide fertilization and nutrients necessary at this time of year. Additional nutrients will be added to this application to limit the affects of heat stress on your lawn. (This application is liquid)
Fifth Application (late summer to early fall)
It is extremely important that lawns be aerated and seeded at this time of year. You will get full written correspondence of our recommendations as we approach this season.
For those who choose to Aerate & Seed – we will apply a granular fertilizer to assist seed germination while providing nutrients necessary for the existing lawn. Any weed population will be sprayed at the time of service.
For those who do not Aerate & Seed – you will receive a liquid fertilizer appropriate for the season as well as the liquid weed controls necessary.
Sixth Application(mid to late fall)
This application is designed to give your lawn the nutrients necessary to sustain it thru the winter months. No weed control due to the time of year. (This application can be granular or liquid)
