When looking for a lawn maintenance company, here are the top two services you should prioritize; fertilization, insect and weed control:


Applying fertilizer on a lawn on a regular basis helps it thrive. Most lawn care services recommend fertilizing your lawn anywhere from three to six times annually. One can choose from fast-release synthetic, slow-release synthetic, or slow-release natural fertilizer.

Grass receives an immediate surge of nutrients from a fast-release fertilizer, resulting in rapid growth and greening. However, if your grass grows at a rapid rate, they may not have enough energy to develop strong roots. Lawns that are fed fast-release fertilizer five to six times a year may suffer from a weak root system and dry out in the summer.

Slow-release synthetic fertilizers provide lawns with a more consistent and gradual supply of nutrients, but this comes at the cost of delayed results since some formulations may not have a noticeable effect for weeks until the weather is favorable or the fertilizer has mixed well with the nutrients already present in the soil.

Slow-release Natural fertilizers include all non-laboratory-produced fertilizers. Common examples include manure, treated sewage, and fish emulsion.

Weed & Insect Control

The best way to get rid of weeds is to use turfgrasses to make a thick enough cover to outcompete them. Weeds are less likely to grow on a healthy lawn full of grass because the weeds can't compete with the grass. With the right amount of mowing and seeding, you can get a lawn that has almost no weeds.

Most pre-emergent herbicides should only be applied to a newly seeded lawn once the desired grasses have matured. Because it is impossible to predict where weed grasses will sprout, pre-emergent herbicides must be applied to the entire lawn. Although pre-emergent herbicides cannot control broadleaf weeds like dandelions and clover, they can be eradicated with post-emergent herbicides that are safe for desirable grasses.

During peak insect seasons, lawn care companies commonly apply insecticides. As a result, there will be fewer unscheduled service calls and fewer customers who will be forced to replace a significant portion of their lawns during the off-season. Most lawn care services allow you to choose the services you need and design a customized lawn care plan that you renew each year if required.
