The two types of turf used in the Atlanta area are Cool Season (generally Fescues) and Warm Season (generally Bermudas and Zoysias) grasses. Our Lawn Care program is designed to address the special needs of Atlanta's each of these two types of turf. Each treatment is tailored to the conditions of your lawn.
Lawn Care - Cool Season Turf
In early spring we will use of a blend of fertilizers to promote root development. We apply herbicides to prevent those ugly spring weeds.
The next spring application contains a second treatment of herbicide to prevent crabgrass and fertilizers make the turf stronger. Post-emergent herbicides are used on existing weeds
In late spring we start preparing your turf for summer. Our fertilizer for this round contains iron to give you superior color and balanced fertilizers to maintain optimum appearance.
It is best not to fertilize fescue during the hot summer months. Our treatment during this time is geared towards building healthy soil. Dolomitic limestone is used to adjust the soil ph, which aids the turf in nutrient uptake.
It is important to feed the turf properly in the fall to prepare for the colder winter months so we apply a booster application of fertilizers later in the fall to aid in overwintering of your turf.
From the Early Spring visit to stop those weeds from growing to the cool season turf Winterizing treatment in the fall for root development, we only use professional grade products to produce superior results.
Lawn Care - Warm Season Turf
In early spring we will use of a blend of nitrogen and potassium high fertilizer to promote root growth. We apply a pre-emergent herbicide to prevent those ugly spring weeds from starting and a post-emergent to tackle existing weeds.
The next spring application contains a second treatment of pre-emergent herbicide to prevent crabgrass. Nitrogen is used to help the turf break dormancy along with potassium to further stimulate the root zone. Post-emergent herbicides are used on existing weeds.
Early, mid and late summer applications are designed to strengthen the turf using balanced fertilizers and post emergent weed control to maintain optimum appearance. We also scout for various insects and diseases and treat the affected areas at no additional cost.
The fall application consists of a blend of pre-emergent targeting winter weeds and potassium for root growth. We have found that a strong root system helps reduce the frequency of winter dead spots.
The last visit of the season in late fall is one of the most important. Dolomitic limestone is applied to build the soil. Lime is essential to allow the turf access to the calcium and magnesium it needs to thrive.
From the Early Spring visit to stop those weeds from growing in your warm season turf, to the Winterizing treatment in the fall for root development, we only use professional grade products to produce superior results.
For horticultural purposes, not only are insects considered to be pests but weeds and diseases are also considered to be Pest. Our Lawn Care Programs are designed to help eradicate all three.
