Lawn Fertilizing 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 growth for your turf. Many stresses are placed upon lawns: mowing and foot traffic alone are very stressful. Turfgrass needs to out compete 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 during a summer drought. Fertilizer should be applied according to a lawn fertilizing schedule: too little will result 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.
Turf Problems Caused by Over fertilizing
- Increase in lawn maintenance practices, such as mowing and aeration
- Lower summer drought tolerance
- Increase in insect damages
- Greater susceptibility to turf 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 Company
Weeds will tend to thrive at the expense of the more desirable turfgrass. They provide competition for space, nutrients, air, water and sunlight. To prevent their seed 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 broadleaf weeds until they are gone in Hinckley and Medina OH.
The Importance of Grass Recycling on the Lawn
Grass recycling benefits both your lawn and the local environment. If lawns are mowed on a regular basis, grass clippings quickly decompose providing free fertilization for your turf. It's a misconception that grass recycling contributes to a thatch buildup or spreads lawn diseases. Thatch is an accumulation of partly decomposed grass roots and stems that develops beneath the actively growing lawn. Grass clippings are largely composed of water and natural nutrients that decompose very rapidly.
