Our company believes firmly in placing "Your Lawn Above the Rest." That's why we have developed a seven step lawn care process to make sure your lawn not only maintains its beauty 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 season-related procedures. 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 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 color 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 provide challenges to your grass, and the previous fertilization programs are continued to fight these challenges. Summer is also the time to look for early signs of pest activity that may have cropped up, which is part of our summer pest control plan. Mid and late summer are active times for professional lawn care services like ours to keep your yard looking its best. Slow release fertilization is applied to help promote continued strong grass in your specific climate conditions. Additional applications of weed control is brought as well 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 appropriate to not only repair summer damage and keep an eye on persistent weeds, but it is also when you want to have our company aid in starting 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 seventh step in our process. This allows the grass to replenish and begin storing up necessary nutrients, promotes root system development and ensures a faster 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 understood by greens keeping professionals on golf courses as the best way to a beautiful and dense turf. By making thousands of tiny 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 damage done by grubs. Our one properly timed application of insecticde keeps grubs at bay and prevents you from incurring large costs for extensive lawn renovations.
