We offer total lawn care programs to increase vitality, and manage soil nutrients, insects, weeds, and diseases. While programs may differ based on each property's specific needs, the following is an example of the application schedule for a typical property in Hunterdon, Mercer, and Bucks Counties.
Round 1: Early Spring: Balanced fertilization and pre-emergent crabgrass control (for crabgrass, goose-grass and other broad leaf turf weeds).
Round 2: Late Spring: Balanced fertilization and pre-emergent crabgrass control and complete post-emergent broad leaf weed control.
Round 3: Summer: Balanced fertilization and insect control (control of cut work, sod webworms, chinch bugs, and other turf grass insects).
Round 4: Autumn: Balanced fertilization and spot application of weed control post-emergent control of broad leaf weeds.
Round 5: Late Autumn: Dormant fertilization.
Grub Control: A chemical application to control grubs that feed on grass roots, causing the turf to turn brown and die.
Lime Application: The soils of New Jersey are naturally acidic (low soil pH). Applications of lime on low pH soils will raise the pH and enhance the essential plant nutrients, encourage root growth, improve soil structure, and enhance the growth of beneficial soil micro-organisms.
Over-Seeding and Lawn Renovation:
Fall: Planting grass seed directly into existing turf, without the removal of existing turf or soil. Used to fill in bare spots, improve the density of the turf, establish improved grass varieties, or enhance lawn color. Includes thatch removal, seed starter fertilization, lime application and seeding via slit seeder to promote germination.
