We have been helping our customers create beautiful lawns for over 20 years. The key to our success is simple. We use a science-based approach to lawn care. We understand Best Management Practices (BMPs) for our local communities, and consider their prevailing turf species, soil types, and growing conditions. We know that the needs of your lawn and its ability to take up nutrients changes throughout the growing season. With this in mind, we select and apply fertilizer products that are most appropriate based on your turf type, growing conditions, and time of year, to ensure your lawn looks its best.
Decades of turf research has proven granular fertilizers to be superior to liquid fertilizers in turf fertility programs. They provide the necessary nutrient levels needed to sustain a thick, healthy lawn. You can be assured that we only use granular fertilizers in our lawn care programs.
Types of Fertilizers We Use:
Encapsulated by an advanced polymer coating (and sometimes sulfur) that allows water to readily enter and dissolve the mineral nutrients inside but regulates the diffusion of those nutrients out of the coating. This effectively allows for a predictable release of nutrients over a prescribed amount of time. This improves nutrient availability and take up, and it greatly reduces the chance for nutrient leaching or run-off.
Releases nutrients gradually with time and can be an inorganic or organic form. It relies on microbial activity in the soil to convert the nutrients to a plant available form which reduces the chance for leaching or run-off and ensures plant availability over a longer period of time. Increased soil moisture and soil temperature leads to more microbial activity, which in turn leads to a higher release rate.
Stabilized Nitrogen Fertilizer
Urea nitrogen that is coated with inhibitors that delay the conversion of urea to ammonium. This greatly reduces nutrient losses from volatilization (gassing-off into the atmosphere), denitrification, and leaching. The result is a stable form of nitrogen that provides anywhere from 8-12 weeks of feeding.
A combination of an organic nutrient source, such as composted poultry manure, bone meal, blood meal and/or reclaimed natural nutrient sources, and a controlled-release synthetic fertilizer. The synthetic fertilizer is formulated to release over a shorter amount of time for quicker response, while the organic source will provide extended feeding.
OMRI certified fertilizer derived from meat and bone meal, blood meal, composted poultry manure and other natural sources. Organic fertilizers provide a stable, slowly available source of nutrients that is available as the turf needs it. Because they are insoluble and depend on microbial activity to convert them to plant usable forms, plant response will be slow, but there is little risk of waste from leaching or run-off.
