Fertilizer and Weed Control

 

Fertilization Five-Step Program

When it comes to lawn fertilization, Nason’s Landscaping has the experience you need.  We use only top quality fertilizer, measure your lawn for accurate ratios and the proof is our 19 years fertilizing this very community.  We can make you the envy of the neighborhood with the greenest lawn on the block for $29.99.  The first application start early April but it’s never too late to start your fertilizer applications.
1st Application
A seasonal fertilizer with pre-emergent crabgrass control, applied in the early spring to control crabgrass emergence and to provide spring green up from long winter. (April – Mid May)
2nd Application
A liquid fertilizer application is applied to control dandelions and other broadleaf weeds.  This application is applied in late spring to early summer and it will help strengthen the turf as well as get control of those nasty dandelions. (Mid-May – Mid-June)
3rd Application
We will spread a slow release-granular fertilizer and spot spray for broadleaf weed control. This application is applied in the summer months to promote good green color, root development, and to aid in drought stress tolerance. (July – August)
4th Application
Spread a slow release fertilizer along with a broadleaf weed control. This application is applied in late summer to aid the turf in gaining strength after the stressful heat from the summer. (Mid-August – September)
5th Application
Spread a slow-release granular winter fertilizer.  Applied in the late fall to help promote good fall root development, to aid the turf in preparation for the winter and releases most nutrients in the spring. (October – November)
Price is per application for lawns up to 5,000 sq ft, comparative pricing for larger areas.
 
Japanese Beetles and Grubs
The Japanese beetles have become a serious problem in lawns and landscapes.  The grub stage can cause extensive damage to the roots of turf, while the adult beetle feeds on various foliage. The adult beetle likes foliage, such as Birch, Linden, Elm, Flowering Crab, Norway Maple, Pin Oak, Rose-of-Sharon, Japanese Maple, Burning Bush, and Roses.  The grub likes plush healthy lawns and well maintained landscapes. Nason’s Landscaping offers programs to stop turf and foliar damage.  We spray trees, shrubs, and flowers for adult beetles and apply granular control for grubs in turf.  These applications are applied in the summer months.
We highly recommend that you do NOT use “beetle traps” as these will attract more beetles than the trap can kill.
Lawn Dethatching
Thatch is a layer of living and dead grass stems and roots. It is the natural consequence of a healthy lawn.  Regular dethatching forces buds to grow near the base of the grass stems, preventing the grass plants from being dead underneath and only green on top. Thatching frees new grass shoots to grow in thick and lush.
Lawn Core Aeration
Core aeration is one of the most important maintenance practices you can do for your lawn.  Aeration can improve air circulation, encourage deeper and broader root growth, improve water and fertilizer uptake, reduce soil compaction and accelerate thatch breakdown.  This, in turn, will help to rejuvenate your grass by allowing the roots to grow deeper, creating healthier grass plants and keeping your lawn thicker and greener.
FAQ
How long should I wait to water after a treatment?
Usually 2 to 3 hours are enough, but waiting until the next morning is best.
How long should I keep my children and pets off the lawn after a treatment?
We suggest that you stay off the lawn for minimum of two hours or until dry.
After an application, how long should I wait to mow?
You should wait at least until the next day to mow, with 2 days being ideal and is preferred.
What is proper mowing height for my lawn?
We recommend you mow no lower than 2″ during early spring or late fall. During the rest of the growing season, generally, 2.5″ to 3.5″ works well. Taller grass heights help conserve water, increases root depth and makes it harder for weed seeds to germinate.
