Professional Lawn Care Company
The purpose of lawn fertilization service with our lawn care company is to provide nutrients to encourage healthy active growth for your turfgrass. Many stresses are placed upon lawns: mowing and foot traffic alone are stressful to the lawn. Turfgrass needs to out compete weeds, recover from diseases, insect issues, and drought damage. To do this turfgrass needs to be kept constantly growing, although cool season grasses such as turf type tall fescue will recover if allowed to go dormant during a summer drought. Fertilization should be applied according to a lawn fertilizing schedule: too little will result in thin turf, sometimes yellowing turf that has a higher susceptibility to lawn disease such as, red thread and turf rust; too much fertilizer also can contribute to many turf problems in the lawn.
Turfgrass problems caused by over fertilizing the lawn:
- Increase in lawn care practices, such as mowing and aeration
- Lower summer drought tolerances in the lawn
- Increase in insect damages on the turfgrass
- Greater susceptibility to turfgrass diseases
- Burning of turfgrass roots and foliage, especially if applied in the summer or applied in excessive amounts
- Contributes to excess nutrients that filter into and pollute water systems
Weed Control Treatments
Broadleaf weeds will tend to thrive at the expense of the more desirable grass. They will provide competition to the grass 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 grass. Our lawn care company will fight those hard to kill weeds until they are gone in Clinton and New Franklin OH.
The Importance of Grass Recycling on the Turfgrass
Grass recycling benefits both your lawn and the environment in your community. If lawns are mowed on a regular basis, clippings quickly decompose providing fertilization for your turf. It is a misconception that grass recycling contributes to a thatch buildup or spreads turf diseases. Thatch accumulates of partly decomposed turfgrass roots and stems that develops beneath the actively growing lawn. Grass clippings are largely composed of water and natural nutrients that decompose rapidly and do not create thatch.
