PROFESSIONAL LAWN SERVICE
Just as all fertilizers are not alike, the same holds true for the lawn
care companies who apply them. At Tree & Turf Professionals, we know
That your lawn needs more than just nitrogen. Phosphorus, Potassium,
Micro Nutrients and Slow Release Nitrogen are not necessary to make a
lawn green. They are however, necessary for a healthy lawn that is
going to be more resistant to insect pressures as well as drought and
We purchase only high quality fertilizers that have been specially
blended for this area to give your lawn a balanced feeding and promote
a healthy and green lawn.
Even the best maintained lawns can occasionally have weeds.
Keeping a lawn weed free takes more than just a couple of treatments
each year. Some weeds like Ground Ivy and Clover are harder to
control than others and may require multiple treatments.
That’s why we provide free service visits in between our regularly
scheduled visits for our full program customers. All you have to do is
call us and we will respond within 2 business days to inspect your lawn
and re-apply weed control if necessary.
After a weed control application, you may notice the weeds begin to
twist and curl within just a few days. This is a sign the weed control is
working and complete results will be seen in 10 to 14 days.
Regular Core Aeration can help avoid costly renovation. Excess
thatch in your lawn prevents water, fertilizer and other lawn care
products from reaching the root zone.
Aeration pulls thousands of small soil cores from your lawn.
These cores are disbursed over the surface of the lawn. As they break
down with rainfall and mowing, helpful soil microbes are incorporated
into the thatch layer to help keep thatch in check naturally.
If your lawn is thin, Over Seeding after your lawn has been Core
Aerated is a cost effective way to help thicken your lawn.
Grubs are the larva stage of various types of beetles. The May/June
beetle and the Japanese beetle are the most common in this area.
Life cycle of the grub:
June/July eggs are laid in the lawn. August/September
the eggs hatch and grubs begin feeding on the roots of the grass
plants. Feeding continues through October. As the grubs feed, the
damage first appears as brown areas in the lawn. If rain is not plentiful
or if you are not irrigating, these areas may die and renovation will be
necessary. Also foraging animals such as Raccoons, Skunks and Opossums,
will dig in the lawn in search of a meal. The damage caused by these
animals can be devastating. The grubs over-winter in the lawn in a
dormant state. In the spring the grubs come out of dormancy and resume
feeding. The adult beetle emerges in May/June to start the cycle over again.
Fall grub control applications are available. Once grubs are controlled for
the fall season, there will not be any further damage from that generation
the following spring. We do however, offer and recommend a grub
preventive treatment, which is applied in June/July with the summer lawn
fertilization to assure you will not have a grub problem in the fall.
