Top Lawn puts great emphasis on placing "Your Lawn Above the Rest." That's why our company has developed a seven step lawn care process that ensures your lawn not only maintains its beauty during the entire 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 season-related procedures. The program consists of treatments that are applied to your lawn every four to six weeks from spring to winter. In early spring, it is important to take advantage of 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 enhance the hue of your lawn, which helps you to enjoy your yard 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 time to inspect for early signs of insect activity that may have cropped up, which is covered by our summer insect control plan. Mid and late summer are active times for professional lawn care services like Top Lawn to keep your yard looking its best. Slow release fertilization is applied to encourage continued strong grass in your particular climate conditions. Additional applications of weed control is brought as well to not only eradicate summer weeds but to strengthen the turf's ability to endure further stress from insects, disease and drought. When fall arrives it is appropriate 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. To complete the program, winter feeding is done through out winter dormant application, the seventh step in our process. This allows the grass to replenish and start storing up valuable nutrients, promotes root system development and provides a quicker spring green up in the next growing season. 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 best way 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 results in 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 harm caused by grubs. Top Lawn's single appropriately timed application of insecticde keeps grubs at bay and keeps you from paying a lot of money for significant grass repair.
