Lawn Fertilization Services with a Professional Lawn Care Company
The purpose of lawn fertilization with our lawn care company is to provide nutrients to encourage healthy active turf growth. Many stresses are placed upon lawns: mowing and foot traffic alone are stressful. Turfgrass needs to out-compete broadleaf weeds, recover from disease outbreaks, insect infestations, and drought damage. To do this turfgrass needs to be kept actively growing, although cool season turfgrasses such as turf type tall fescue will recover if allowed to go dormant in a summer drought. Fertilizer should be applied according to a lawn fertilizing schedule: too little fertilizer results in thin, sometimes yellowing turf that has a higher susceptibility to lawn diseases such as, red thread and rust; too much fertilizer also can contribute to many turf problems.
Problems Caused by Over-fertilizing
- Increase in maintenance practices, such as mowing and aeration
- Lower drought tolerance
- Increase in insect damages
- Greater susceptibility to lawn diseases, such as leaf spot
- Burning of grass roots and foliage, especially if applied in the summer or applied in excessive amounts
- Contributes to excess nutrients that filter into and pollute local water systems
Weed Control Service
Weeds tend to thrive at the expense of the more desirable turfgrass. They provide competition for space, nutrients, air, water and light. To prevent their germination and growth, we use a combination of pre-emergents applied to the soil, and post emergent applications to the turf. Our lawn care company will fight those hard to kill weeds until they are gone in the Jackson Township and Massillon OH area.
The Importance of Grass Recycling
Grass recycling benefits both your lawn and the environment. If lawns are mowed on a regular basis, grass clippings quickly decompose providing free fertilizer for your turf. It is a misconception that grass recycling contributes to a thatch buildup or spreads lawn disease. Thatch is an accumulation of partly decomposed grass roots and stems that develops beneath the actively growing turf. Grass clippings are largely composed of water and natural nutrients that decompose rapidly.
