Our Fertilizer Plan for Residential Lawns

1st Application: The first application is applied in the spring. Normally between April 1 and April 30. This application consists of a slow release fertilizer to jump-start your lawn and a pre-emergent crabgrass control. Crabgrass normally germinates during the month of May in Grand Rapids, so it is important to have this application down before this happens. This application is important because crabgrass is very hard to kill once the plant has matured.

2nd Application: The second application is applied around May 15 to June 15. This application includes a slow release fertilizer to keep your lawn green and healthy. It also includes spot-spraying any weeds we see in the lawn. This include dandelions, clover, and ground ivy and any weeds that pop up after our first visit.

3rd Application: The third application include slow release fertilizer and another round of spot spraying to control any weeds. This application is applied in July and includes an optional grub control application if requested.

4th Application: The fourth application applied from August 15 to September 15. It allows us to kill both the annual and perennial weeds as many weeds are starting to germinate during this time. You may not see these weeds, but it is the easiest to kill them before you see them. A slow release fertilizer is also included in this application.

5th Application: The fifth application is our most important application. This includes winterizer fertilizer which will protect your lawn over the winter and give it a jump start in the spring. We also spot-spray weeds during this application, and this is the application when our weed control will be the most effective.
