Fertilization & Weed Control

A healthy lawn provides several benefits.  A well maintained lawn can increase a home’s value, help prevent erosion and run off of water, generate oxygen and even provide natural air conditioning.  Lawns in Indiana need all the help they can get to remain healthy and vigorous. Most of our lawns are grown on heavy clay soils that are lacking in naturally occurring nutrients.   Proper fertilization and weed control helps turf fight off the stress of traffic, drought, disease, and insect pests.

Our lawn care programs provide environmentally responsible applications to promote healthy, dense, dark green turf that will be an asset to your property.  We offer a 5 round program detailed below, with an additional grub control that we pair with our summer application.  All of the applications are designed to provide your turf with the right amount of nutrients and weed control at the right time of year.
