CUSTOM LAWN SPRAY PROGRAMS

Every Lawn Is Different

The most exciting part of lawn car and turf management is that every lawn is completely different.  In fact, the same lawn can have several different issues in different areas.  This requires the technician to be vigilant in every step that’s taken on the property.  Understanding the lawn and soil conditions can help us give you the lawn of your dreams.

Custom Lawn Programs

We have a base program we use as an approach to every lawn.  Our base program is extremely powerful in tackling even the worst issues; however, our technicians understand that our program is simply a starting point.  There are many times we have to reach into our bag of tricks to solve specific issues.

Our Commitment to Your Lawn

Our technicians are graded on results – delivering the best results possible the first time.  Therefore it is adventitious to them to make sure what they’re doing on your property is going to improve it the best way possible.  Luckily, our program is so strong that they won’t encounter too many issues, but in the event they do, they have the skills to be able to tackle them.

Our Lawn Care Program

1. LATE WINTER

Application:  Screamin’ Green 16-2-3 Organically Enhanced Fertilizer

Pre-emergent + Weed control

 

Date: Late Jan – Late Feb

Benefits:

Screamin’ Green Fertilizer is designed to apply appropriate amounts of carbon to the soil to create an aerobic condition for soil microbes to thrive.  As the microbes become more active, they will consume the organic matter in the fertilizer to provide a consistent source of N.  With the addition of ammonium sulfate, it will provide a quick green with sustainable color.

This time of year, I run an ester based broadleaf weed control formulated to powerfully knock down weeds – even in cool weather. This will control onions, chickweed, dandelions, henbit, etc, that are so common over the winter.  The crabgrass control prevents the emergence of crabgrass and other summer annual seedlings before they have the chance start growing.

2. Early Spring

Application:  Screamin’ Green 16-2-3 Organically Enhanced Fertilizer

Pre-emergent + Weed control

 

Date: Early March-April

Benefits:

Around this time frame, the turf starts to stretch and yawn as it shakes off the cold winter. A balanced organic fertilizer will maintain color, safely, without the flush growth known to promote brown patch disease.

3. Early Summer

Application: ICT Organics NPP + Dynamic Duo Compost

Date:Mid May-June

Benefits:

ICT Organics Natural Plant Protection is a natural curative and preventative fungicide.  It is USDA Organic Program Compliant.  It stops disease in its tracks within hours and elicits systemic acquired response (SAR) to boost the plant’s immune system to ward off attacks from future pathogens.

Dynamic Duo supplies roughly half the amount of organic matter required for a lawn to truly perform in only one application.

4. Early Summer

Application: ICT Organics Compost Tea

Date: Mid June – Late July

Benefits:

This product is based on the latest advances in organic fertilization. Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR). PGPR supply the biology to the plant, soil and root system that profoundly affects the plant in relation to nutrition and health. These turf specific PGPR colonize the soil and trigger a symbiotic relationship that enhance nutritional uptake for grasses which means greener, healthier lawns.

5. Late Summer

Application: Grub Control

Date: Late July – Late August

Benefits:

Grubs are becoming more prevalent in our area.  They are the larvae of japanese beetles and survive by feeding on the tender roots of turfgrasses.  Once populations reach 4-5 larvae per square foot, they cause irreversible damage.  This application is a preventative product that will eliminate the grubs as they attempt to feed on the roots of the turfgrass.

6. Early Fall

Application: Organically Enhanced Granular Fertilizer (Often done in Conjunction with aeration and overseeding)

Date: Mid September-Halloween

Benefits:

Summer stress can be quite significant on fescue lawns -especially in the transition zone.  This time of year, I use a  organic material base fertilizer to help the lawn recover.  The product applies beneficial bacteria, fungi, and micros back into the soil to establish a healthier root zone, meaning beautiful, deep green top growth.  

7. Late Fall

Application: Slow Release Organically Enhanced Fertlizer  + Soil Test

Date: November

Benefits:

Fescue, being a cool season turf, needs as much rooting to take place during the cool season to be able to withstand as much of the summer stress as possible.  This fertilizer will provide a slow, yet consistent feed to the turf to promote root tillering all winter long with the bulk of it being released the following spring.  The result is better color, stronger root mass, and more turf density. At this time, we will also test the soil pH level.  With this information we can show you if, and how much change needs to take place.
