Lawn Care Program

I would like to invite you to try our lawn care program, It really is the best for the environment and your lawn. Our program focuses on developing roots by creating an environment where grass can thrive and be fed.

We do this by first using a Controlled Release Nitrogen rather than Urea because Controlled Release Nitrogen has a 2.4 salt index compared to Urea at 74. Controlled Release Nitrogen stays in the root zone to feed the plants around it and it doesn’t leach or volatize like Urea. You will also find that because it releases slowly and more uniform that you don’t have to mow as often or irrigate as much as other fertilizer applications.

Since all plants need at least 17 key nutrients we add soil amendments to our program to improve microbial activity which improves the release of all the key nutrients required to keep your lawn healthy.

Our weed control program is also more environmentally friendly, requiring only half the herbicide per application because it has a better carrier to get the chemical into the weed better, providing for a better kill.
