We use push spreaders so we can accurately apply materials right the first time. The only spraying in our fertilizing program is to spot spray the weeds that penetrate our pre and post emergent barrier.
Our fertilizing steps are:
- Complete balanced fertilization. Promotes green-up and recovery from winter stresses. Pre-emergent herbicide to control crabgrass and other summer grassy weeds. Post-emergent to control winter grassy weeds as well as henbit, chickweed, clover and other broadleaf weeds.
- Pre-emergent to control broadleaf weeds including dandelions, chickweed, henbit, clover and other annual grasses. Weed control will extend into summer. Second application of crabgrass pre-emergent. Balanced fertilization to promote root development to strengthen turf for summer heat and improve your lawn's color and density.
- Spray application of Momentum selective herbicide to control pre-existing weeds and annual grasses.
- Balanced fertilizer to safely provide nutrients to your lawn for the summer ahead which will allow your lawn to be thick, rich, and healthy.
- This step will be customized for your lawns’ particular type and needs taking into consideration seeding, stress, weeds, drought, etc. Lawn will be checked and sprayed for weeds. We will coordinate starter fertilizer for lawn being aerated and seeded in September.
- A high nitrogen winterizer to promote root growth and food storage to help your lawns winter survival. Helps repair damage from drought and disease and it provides excellent color.

Add grub control and lime to your fertilizing program to protect your beautiful lawn.
Recommended Option #1, Grub Control:
Nothing wreaks havoc on your lawn like an army of grubs. The signs may be subtle - Japanese beetles flying, a few brown patches and suddenly your lawn appears to die right in front of your eyes. Grubs have invaded eating your lawn's roots, leaving it vulnerable.
Lawn Seasons certified professionals are trained to control lawn grubs and other insects that may infest your yard.
Preventative Grub Control: If you lawn, or even your neighbor's lawn has experienced a recent grub infestation, a preventative grub control treatment is highly recommended.
Our season long grub control will help prevent grubs from feeding on your grass roots. By treating grubs in your lawn, this eliminates the grubs later hatching into Japanese Beetles which will feed on roses, bushes and trees in your yard. It provides proven performance not only against grubs but the May/June beetles, Green June beetle, Billbugs and armyworms.
Grub Damage: Lawn grubs feed on the roots of many plants, but prefer the fibrous roots of turf grasses. As the root system is destroyed, sections of turf wilt, turn brown and can be easily pulled back to reveal grubs beneath. What will happen to my lawn? They feed throughout the summer causing extensive and often irreparable damage. In July, the adult beetles lay their eggs in the soil and within weeks grubs emerge to feed on the roots of your lawn often causing extensive damage by early fall. In addition, food-seeking predators such as moles, skunks, crows and blackbirds often do further damage in the areas where grubs are present. What can you do? Make sure your lawn is getting enough water. A properly watered lawn will resist or, at least, minimize the damage from an insect infestation of any kind. An insecticide will be necessary to achieve complete control. Lawns with severe turf loss due to grub damage will need to be repaired with seed or sod.
Grub Control also controls these pests: Larvae such as; cutworms, sod webworms, armyworms and fall armyworms, Japanese beetle, May/June beetle, Green June Beetle, Billbugs and the Oriental beetle.
Recommended Option #2, Lime Application:
Fertilizer, leaves, grass clippings and trees constantly add to the acidity of your soil. A lime application neutralizes this effect by allowing alkalinity and acidity to return your soil to a neutral to +7 PH which is the correct PH for healthy grass. The greater the acidity of the soil, the greater need for lime.
Lime promotes nutrient availability, root development, and increases in micro-organisms, soil structure, and decrease thatch accumulation.
We recommend that lime be applied every year. It is usually applied in November or December in order to have plenty of moisture to dissipate the lime into the soil. By applying lime every year you are lowering acidity so your soil PH is maintained closer to proper levels necessary for effective use of nutrients in the soil.
