Our basic lawn care program is designed to improve and maintain the health, color, and density of your lawn. The treatments — performed by our licensed specialists — are designed specifically for your property and tailored to its unique characteristics.
This program consists of six applications throughout the year designed to supply your lawn with all of its nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium needs. It also provides controls for problems that may arise throughout the season such as crabgrass, broadleaf weeds, surface feeding insects, and sub-surface feeding insects.
Early and Late Spring applications includes a starter fertilizer to wake up your turf and get it back in the growth phase for the oncoming warm weather. With the fertilizer, we will be applying a crabgrass preventer to get a head start on the growth and spread of crabgrass; this product melts into the top layer of soil to prevent new growth from breaking through. It is imperative that lawns are watered, especially between Spring showers because any dried out soil can dry out, crack, and expose deep crabgrass roots and seeds that can grow through cracks in that layer of preventer. Where appropriate, we will also apply a broadleaf weed control.
Overall, this important application gives your turf and soil a wakeup from winter dormancy and prepares it for the things it will face as the weather turns and all things green begin to bloom and grow!
Our priority is to always work towards a healthy, green, lush lawn. We realize that for this goal to be met, we will need to depend on your full cooperation with several cultural practices such as proper mowing, watering, and monitoring of your property. The proper implementation of these practices will have a substantial effect on the quality of your lawn and landscape. Emerald Green’s goal is to provide you with pertinent, seasonal information at the time of application on the caring of your outdoor landscape. Our professional staff is also available for phone consultations and/or visit to your property (at no charge for Basic Program Client) whenever necessary.
