• A granular lawn fertilizer along with a pre-emergent crabgrass control is applied to your lawn to prevent the germination of crabgrass and other annual grassy weeds while promoting an early spring green-up of your lawn.
• A broadleaf weed control and slow release lawn fertilizer treatment is applied to control early summer germinating lawn weeds - keeps your grass green, weed free, and your lawn healthy.
• A slow release lawn fertilizer will help feed and maintain the lawn's overall health and vigor. (A spot treatment of broadleaf weed control will be used if needed).
• A broadleaf weed control and slow release lawn fertilizer treatment is applied for early fall germinating weeds and to promote a green lush lawn.
• A granular lawn fertilizer is applied to strengthen and promote the continued development of healthy grass roots, while maintaining a lush green lawn.
Proper lawn fertilizing with balanced applications throughout the growing season promotes a thick, dense grass that can resist lawn insects, lawn diseases and weed invasions. Applying too much of any one of the basic elements can cause erratic results on your lawn. For example, an over abundance of nitrogen will cause rapid growth of the grass blade that the grass root system cannot adequately support; the grass blades become long and spindly. Nutritional balance is necessary for proper lawn care and is the key to a thicker greener lawn.
Dry granular lawn fertilizer with slow release nitrogen, for proper grass root development, is complimented by liquid lawn weed control applications to maintain the texture and color of your lawn and build a deep healthy root system.

Landscape Maintenance Tips
The following flower, mowing, watering, and other tips will keep your landscape looking its best during the growing season.
A lawn that is cut at one of the higher settings on your mower will have the ability to stay greener longer, requires less watering, and also prohibits weeds from emerging. Mowing too short starves the root system of your grass plants.
Do not plant flowers around trees. Flowers generally require more water than trees. Supplying adequate water to the flowers may harm or stress your tree.
Do not plant flowers too close to the edge of plant beds. Flowers may be damaged during routine mowing operations.
The average lawn will need 1" of water per week. Water each area of your lawn long enough to soak the soil to a depth of 4 to 6 inches. Soaking the soil slowly, and to that depth, encourages a good, deep root system.
Water new seed/sod daily to keep the roots moist until the grass plants are established.
Trees and Shrubs
Water newly transplanted trees and shrubs by placing the hose on the soil line next to the trunk at a slow trickle. Soaker hoses, which slowly emit water through tiny holes, is another option to water newly planted trees and shrubs.
Prune flowering shrubs within 4 - 6 weeks after they are done flowering to insure normal flower production next year.
