Is your lawn the eye sore of your home? Are you ready to be the envy of the neighborhood with how perfect your grass is? Starting a fertilizer program in 2022 is going to be your first step to success. We recommend only having certified applicators working on your lawn. They will know how to handle the chemicals and get you the best results. Let’s go over the treatments and how to get started on a fertilizer program.
How To Get Started:
First things first, contact a local landscaping company to get an estimate for a years worth of treatments. Make sure you find a company that does not put you into a contract in case you are unhappy with your results. It will take time for the fertilizer to have an effect, so be patient.
After you have found a company they will be able to evaluate your lawn and apply extra or different treatment where it is needed. Hiring a company will make sure you never miss a treatment throughout the year.
We recommend 7 treatments a year in the midwest. Each one comes with spot treatment for weeds as needed.
Early spring application: To help lawn recover from winter and prevent new weeds from germinating.
Late spring application: Slow release fertilizer to prepare lawn for summer, and more pre-emergent top event new weeds.
Grub application: Preventative grub control (performed at the same time as the Summer Application)
Summer application: Helps lawn retain color from spring
Early fall application: Promotes lush color
Late fall application: Repairs damaged/stressed turf
Winterizer: Provides food to the lawn during the winter. This promotes earlier spring green-up and a healthy root system.
Once you have found the company that you would like to start treatments with, it is time to start watering. Fertilizer is great for your lawn, it does need water to provide the largest amount of nutrition to your lawn.
This is the first step to getting your lawn in shape. It will take time, but with watering and the right fertilizer technician there will be progress to make your lawn the envy of the neighborhood.
