Fertilization & Weed Control

The maintenance system usually includes four applications per season. This may vary depending on customer needs. We provide individualized service to achieve optimum turf quality all the time.

Broadleaf Weed Control

Our Weed Control System consists of one broadleaf application in early summer followed by another in the fall.  Two times annually will effectively control the weeds for a very high-end lawn.  In some cases, spot treatments may be necessary.  These are free for maintenance customers.

 

Fertilization

We fertilize twice annually.  The spring application includes an ingredient for pre-emergent and post-emergent crabgrass control as well as a slow release fertilizer that feeds all summer.  The fall application is an all-mineral fertilizer that promotes turf health during dormancy and early green-up in the spring.  The major benefit of this is that fertilizing during the cool months promotes slow growth and requires less water.  A summer application is only necessary in cases where the grass is grossly over-watered.

 
Look what people are saying...

I can't say enough good things about Nick and his crew.

About a year and a half ago I was assigned the task of hiring a new grounds care company since our current one at the time was failing us miserably. I looked at about 10 – 15 companies very closely. I called each one and acquired as much information as I possibly could. Finally we narrowed the search down to 3 and Lawn by the Yard was one of those 3.

What made this company stand out to us was that Nick (the owner) insisted on coming out to our property and walking through it with me. He wanted me to point out the association's issues and also express issues that he saw and how he could correct them. He was the only company that insisted on doing this. I felt if Nick is willing to go the extra mile just to understand our needs before we even talk about hiring him then he has already out shined his competition.
