A great-looking turf doesn’t just happen. It takes ongoing nurturing and care. When it comes to having a thriving, lush, green lawn, feeding your turf with the proper nutrients via fertilization is important.
Of course, your mind be wondering what that really means?
We’ll walk through what that means and how it can help your property to look its best.
Six Steps to Successful Fertilization
At Carruthers Landscape Management, the best results are achieved with a six-step turf plan that includes four fertilization treatments to feed the lawn vital nutrients and two pre-emergent applicants to keep weeds at bay. The program also includes all post-emergent weed control necessary to continue to address weed breakthrough. After all, not all weeds can be controlled with pre-emergent and many also require repeated applications. This six-step fertilization program is our primary plan, though we can customize our options for property managers who are looking for additional treatments. However, we find that four applications are more than enough for the vast majority of the lawns that we work with here in Dallas, TX.
What are Pre-Emergent Controls?
It’s worth mentioning a few words on our pre-emergent applications given their importance.
Within our lawn fertilization program, those two pre-emergent applications are truly essential as this is how we’ll prevent most of the potential weeds on your property from germinating in the first place. Pre-emergent works by creating a barrier that prevents weeds from breaking through. This is an important step in the effort to achieve the thick and healthy turf results you’re striving for—and cannot be achieved with fertilization alone. Fertilization plus weed control is a powerful combination.
Are all Fertilization Programs the Same?
Since most (if not all) lawn care companies offer fertilization, you might be wondering what sets our program apart.
Although it may seem like all lawn care companies are doing the same thing, there are some pretty big differences in the way they operate. Among the differences are even the products being utilized. The truth is, not all companies invest in high-quality, commercial-grade fertilization products. They might try to save some money by using cheaper products. However, this will have a direct impact on your results.
In addition, it’s also important to know that everything from the application rate to the timing of an application can have an impact on your fertilization results. Unfortunately, there are plenty of lawn care companies out there that do not have well-trained technicians. But there’s more to fertilization than simply dumping product on the turf and moving on. And in order to get the most possible value out of your investment, you want to be confident that this service is being performed properly.
