Fertilizing & Lime Application


How do your neighbors get their lawns so green? 


It’s not magic. It’s lawn fertilization. Fertilization plays a major role in helping your lawn look its best all year long. That’s why lawn fertilization is a key part to our lawn treatment program. Your lawn needs the right nutrients to survive and thrive. Environmental conditions, insects, inconsistency in the amount of soil moisture and diseases can threaten the health of your lawn year-round. One of the best ways to protect your lawn is to provide it with the right nutrients. Fertilization provides those nutrients for lawn growth, so you can experience the following benefits: vibrant green color, higher grass density, faster, healthier growth, quicker recovery from pest and weed damage, and resistance to stress conditions.

Lime Application

Soils are classified as acid, alkaline or neutral and described by their pH value. A pH below 7 is acid, above 7 is alkaline and 7.0 is neutral. Soil pH is affected by rainfall, organic matter decay, fertilizers, pesticides and pollution. Lime may be needed if the pH of your soil is too low for the turf species you want to maintain. In addition to correcting soil acidity, lime adds calcium and magnesium to soil. Such nutrients are important to preserve a lawn's color and vigor and protect from damage caused by heat, drought or traffic stress. Calcium helps to regulate other beneficial soil nutrients such as zinc, copper and phosphorus. Lime can mitigate toxic effects from a buildup of damaging nutrients like aluminum, manganese and iron in your lawn that will reduce plant growth. The amount of lime required varies according to the degree of acidity, soil type and type of lime material. The first part of our treatment plan is getting your soil tested, so we can get the current ph and know what your soil has for nutrients and what it needs.
