Organic Fertilizer, Weed Control, Lawn Maintenance, Hydroseeding and more!
The basic elements of good lawn care are: proper watering, mowing, fertilization, core aeration, soil management, disease and pest control. Any lawn care program depends on the homeowner’s cooperation for optimum success. Proper mowing, watering, and observation are good practices and the responsibility of the homeowner. We can work together as a team to keep your lawn healthy and looking good. Our organic lawn care program is designed to provide the turf with necessary nutrient requirements to sustain a proper turf stand as outlined in our climate and soil conditions by Michigan State University.

Our Annual Lawn Care Program:
Dry granular fertilizer to wake up turf and Dimension Pre-Emergent crabgrass control, to prevent crabgrass germination, which typically will show in the turf stand in June or July. Round 1 applied in March to April.
Dry granular fertilizer and three-way systemic broadleaf weed control to eliminate all broadleaf weeds. Weed control cannot be applied until all weeds are up and to adult stage. Once there is sufficient foliage and the weed control is applied, it is absorbed into the plant tissue and eliminates the weeds, root and all. Dry granular weed control is the best form of weed control. Round 2 applied in May to early June.
Round 3 typically consists of all mineral fertilizers with 20-50% slow release encapsulation to help regulate the growth of turf and spot treatment of weeds during the start of the hot season. Our early-summer blend also contains iron for deep green color without causing excessive growth. Round 3 applied in July.
Round 4 typically consists of spot treatments and all mineral fertilizers with 20-50% slow release encapsulation to help regulate the growth of turf during the remainder of the hot season. Our late-summer blend also contains iron for deep green color without causing excessive growth. Round 4 applied in August.
Dry granular fertilizer and three-way systemic broadleaf weed control to eliminate newly germinated weeds from summer stress. Round 5 applied in September or once cooler and rainier weather returns.
Dry granular winterizing fertilizer, which helps provide lawn with nutrients through dormant winter months, and helps to wake up lawn quicker in the spring. Round 6 applied in October.
- If a client chooses only a five-application program then Round 4 can be eliminated.
- If a client chooses only a four-application program then Rounds 4 and 6 will be eliminated leaving them with Rounds 1,2,3,5.
Our Environmentally Conscious Program
We care about the environment, so we also feature a more eco-friendly lawn program. In our 6-application program, one or two treatments will contain a herbicide for weeds. The other four treatments are done in a dry granular form and contain no herbicides.
Please let us know in advance if you plan to do any seeding this spring. We will omit the pre-emergent treatment to allow your grass seed to germinate.
