Balanced fertilizer is the key to having a healthy lawn. A balanced fertilizer consists of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Nitrogen is applied to give your lawn the green color that you desire. Phosphorus and potassium provide the nutrients needed to promote strong root growth. The right combination of these ingredients is extremely important to your lawn. Strong roots mean that your lawn will have thicker and wider grass blades. Not only that, your lawn will be much less susceptible to disease and insect damage. Many diseases and insects will attempt to destroy your lawn, so it is vital that your lawn has strong roots to resist these attacks.
Mastergreen’s Guaranteed 6 Treatment Program
Our guarantee is that your lawn will be green and weed free.
Round 1 Pre-emergent coated fertilizer- this application protects your lawn from grassy type weeds, such as crabgrass and foxtail, which will germinate later in the year. It consists of balanced fertilizer to begin strengthening your root system. The pre-emergent coating puts a protective blanket across your lawn to prevent the crabgrass and other grassy weeds from germinating. When those weeds try to germinate they encounter the protective barrier, which kills them before they have a chance to grow into their adult stages. Keep in mind; this application does not do anything for broadleaf weeds, such as dandelions. Broadleaf weeds must be actively growing in order to kill them.
Rounds 2-5 Balanced fertilizer plus broadleaf weed control- these applications contain balanced fertilizer with slow release nitrogen. “Slow release” means your lawn will be continually fed the entire time between applications. Slow release fertilizer is a vital part of a proper lawncare program. All weeds should be gone within two weeks of treatment. If you still have weeds, just give us a call and we’ll come out to apply another application of weed control free of charge.
Round 6 Winterizer treatment- this treatment will prepare your lawn for the winter months. It will continue to feed the lawn over the winter months. You should expect to have one of the first green lawns of the year!
