Top Lawn puts great emphasis on placing "Your Lawn Above the Rest." That's why we have developed a seven step lawn care program to make sure your lawn not only looks great throughout the growing season but also receives professional treatment during the dormant periods during which the grass needs to restore itself and gather nutrients for the following seasons. The seven step program that we have developed consists of all procedures based upon growing seasons. The program consists of applications that are done to your lawn every four to six weeks from spring to winter. In early spring, it is crucial to begin with a good starter fertilizer to wake your grass up from its winter dormancy. This balanced starter fertilizer promotes the green up of the grass. In addition, early spring is the perfect time to fight crabgrass and broad leaf weeds, and we offer the maximum benefit you can receive. Late Spring continues the balanced fertilization and weed control. This treatment helps also to brighten the color of your grass, which helps you to enjoy your grass just as soon as summer is about to arrive. With early summer comes spot treatment for persistent broad leaf weeds. Hot summer temperatures and glaring sunshine stress your grass, and the earlier fertilization programs are continued to fight these challenges. Summer is also the season to look for early signs of insect activity that may have cropped up, which is part of our summer insect control plan. The rest of the warm seasons are active times for professional lawn care services like Top Lawn to keep your yard looking its best. Slow release fertilization is done to help promote continued strong grass in your particular climate conditions. Additional applications of weed control is brought additionally to not only eliminate summer weeds but to strengthen the turf's ability to endure further stress from insects, disease and drought. When fall arrives it is time to not only repair summer damage and keep an eye on persistent weeds, but it is also when you want to have Top Lawn help promote your lawn's root development in preparation for the dormant season. This is done through our fall feeding application. Finally, winter feeding is done through out winter dormant application, the final step in our process. This allows the grass to replenish and begin storing up valuable nutrients, promotes root system development and ensures a faster spring green up in the next year. Two additional components of quality lawn care that Top Lawn provides is core aeration and Merit grub control. Core aeration has long been known to greens keeping professionals on golf courses as the key to a beautiful and dense turf. By making thousands of small holes in the turf, fertilizer, water and air reach the root zone quickly, which creates new growth and root development. Additionally, thatch build up and soil compaction is reduced by this program, which allows your lawn room to breathe and grow. Merit grub control ensures that all of this work in successfully creating a lush and beautiful lawn doesn't get reversed by the damage done by grubs. Our one properly timed application of insecticde keeps grubs at bay and prevents you from paying a lot of money for extensive lawn renovations.
