Fertilizing & Spraying
Do you want a lush green lawn? If so, we can help. Our lawn care fertilizing and spraying programs are designed and suited for your individual lawn type. One of the key factors to having a beautiful lawn is fertilization; however, that is only one piece of the puzzle in achieving a winning lawn. Other important factors include watering, insect control, sunlight, shade, thatch, mowing height, and disease control.
Below is a brief outline of our 5 steps fertilizing and spraying program designed for our cool season lawns in southwest Kansas.
Early spring application helps to provide fast green-up and recovery from winter stress. Weed control and crabgrass preventers are applied, as well as a slow-release iron and sulfur supplement. Note if you plan on aerating your lawn in early spring, it's best to aerate before the first application, so the pre-emergent herbicide won't get disturbed.
Spring application provides extra nutrients, along with additional iron and sulfur supplements, which improve lawn color and density. We will spray the lawn to help ensure long continuous control of unwanted weeds throughout the season.
In the summer months, we apply a slow-release fertilizer designed to promote root growth without burning the grass in the high summer heat. We will spray for any remaining weeds as well as inspect for grubs and other damaging problems. Treatment options will be discussed with the homeowner if problems arrive.
Fall is the most important time of the year to fertilize, which helps build strong roots, enabling the turf to withstand a harsh Kansas winter. We will spray for broadleaf weeds if needed.
This will round out the season, preparing your lawn for winter and providing the necessary amount of nitrogen to ensure a nice green up come spring.
*All rates and application periods will vary for warm-season grass such as Buffalo, Bermuda, and Zoysia.
Most of the fertilizer products we put down are coated with sulfur; this is beneficial by guarding against the burning of the grass, helping maintain proper PH, as well as allowing the fertilizer to break down, thus giving a much longer feeding slowly.
