PRO LAWN PROGRAM
We offer a terrific 5-step plan that covers essentials like fertilization, broadleaf weed control, crabgrass pre-emergent, & billbug control.
EARLY SPRING: Granular fertilizer for quick green-up. The product also contains sulfur, which helps reduce the pH of our alkaline soils, making nutrients more readily available to your lawn.
MID SPRING: Liquid application of fertilizer, crabgrass pre-emergent, and selective herbicide for broadleaf weeds. This is broadcast over the lawn with emphasis on edges where crabgrass and weeds tend to grow.
EARLY SUMMER: Granular fertilizer impregnated with a systemic insecticide to suppress billbugs. We will also spot treat broadleaf weeds & crabgrass as needed.
MID SUMMER: Granular fertilizer & spot treat billbugs. Only if temperatures allow, we will spot spray broadleaf weeds & crabgrass.
EARLY FALL: Liquid application of fertilizer & broadleaf weed control.
EXCLUSIONS – other less-common issues can arise such as sod webworm & various lawn diseases. These are not covered in the program but may be treated at an additional cost.
IPM TREE/SHRUB PROGRAM
This smart & safe program is rooted in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) ideals, which prioritize preventative action & preservation of beneficial insects.
EARLY SPRING: Apply a mixture of fertilizer packed with essential micronutrients and a systemic insecticide as a soil drench around the base of select trees & shrubs. The solution absorbs through the roots & persists in plants for many weeks, targeting aphids & other bugs.
EARLY SPRING: Apply a safe dormant oil spray to smother overwintering insect eggs including aphids & certain kinds of scale.
EARLY TO MID-SUMMER: Spray select trees/shrubs targeting spider mites & their eggs. We will also spot treat lingering aphids, blackvine weevil, & certain kinds of scale.
FALL: Apply winterizing fertilizer to select trees and shrubs.
SPIDER BARRIER PROGRAM
Spiders are immensely beneficial but we don’t want to share our homes with them. Three (3) times a year, we apply an invisible spray barrier around the home’s foundation & lower points of entry to inhibit spiders from entering. Spiders can hang around outside doing their good work!
