MAINTENANCE PROGRAMS

Standard Program (6 annual
visits)
hcreek1-2

• For thinner, new lawns or established lawns just returning to regular
maintenance
• Early Spring, Mid Spring, Late Spring, Summer, Early Fall and Late Fall

This is our 6-step plan that is comprised of both liquid and
granular applications designed to cover all your lawn’s needs from
fertilization to crabgrass and weed control. We use only premium organic-based,
slow-release fertilizers to provide nutrients to the lawn over a longer period
of time without the surge of top growth that comes from quick-release
fertilizers. To address the higher pressure from weeds, broadleaf weed controls
are applied in the spring and fall, blanketing the entire lawn-the most
effective way to get weeds under control. For improved crabgrass control,
pre-emergent controls are applied in each of the first two spring applications.
This “split application” technique allows us to achieve better control without
using excess pesticide. Also included with this program are two free soil pH
tests (during Early Spring and Late Fall) to determine if a lime application
would benefit. As with all of our maintenance programs, the Standard Program
can be tailored to fit both you and your lawns individual needs.

Recommended Program (5 annual
visits)
customer2-2

• For established lawns under regular maintenance
• Early Spring, Late Spring, Summer, Early Fall and Late Fall

This is our preferred maintenance program, covering your
lawn’s fertility, crabgrass and weed control needs with 5 timely visits
throughout the year. We use only premium organic-based, slow-release fertilizers
because they last longer, and provide more substantial nutrients than
quick-release fertilizers. We address broadleaf weeds during each visit with
liquid weed control to keep seasonal, annual, and perennial weeds in check
utilizing an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) approach. Also included with this
program are two free soil pH tests (during Early Spring and Late Fall) to
determine if a lime application would benefit. As with all of our maintenance
programs, the Recommended Program can be tailored to fit both you and your
lawn’s individual needs.

Shady Lawn Program ( 5 annual
visits) 
shadebed-2


• For new and established predominately shady lawns.
• Early Spring, Late Spring, Summer, Early Fall and Late Fall.

This program addresses your lawn’s special requirements
under lower light conditions and more competition from trees. This program uses
organic-based fertilizers and  IPM (Integrated Pest Management) weed
controls to

promote healthy turf growth from spring through fall. Weed
controls are applied on an “as needed” basis during each application. Crabgrass
is treated with a post-emergent application in early summer due to its lower
pressure in shady conditions. This will allow for seeding the thinner areas as
needed throughout the growing season without being restricted due to prior
pre-emergent or weed control applications. Also included with this program are
two free soil pH tests (during Early Spring and Late Fall) to determine if a
lime application would benefit. As with all of our maintenance programs, the
Shady Lawn Program can be tailored to fit both you and your lawns individual
needs.

Organic Program (5 annual visits)
 
• Pesticide Free (no weed controls, insect controls or disease controls)
• Early Spring, Late Spring, Summer, Early Fall and Late Fall

This program consists of five timely applications, made up
of slow-release, organic nutrients to promote deep root growth and consistent
greening. This program does not include any broadleaf or grassy weed controls.
However, if you are interested in controlling crabgrass (annual grassy weed)
you may substitute an organic-based fertilizer with crabgrass pre-emergent as
your early spring application. If broadleaf weeds (dandelions, clover, ground
ivy, etc.) become unruly, you may add or substitute an application of weed
control in the fall. (Fall is the best time of the year to control perennial
broadleaf weeds). Also included with this program are two free soil pH tests
(during Early Spring and Late Fall) to determine if a lime application would
benefit. As with all of our maintenance programs, the Organic Program can be
tailored to fit both you and your lawns individual needs.
