What Makes The Spring Touch Program Successful?

  • Timing: Much of the success of a lawn treatment program depends upon applying the proper product at the right time. We know your lawn's growing cycles and have developed a timetable for proper nutrition, weed control and disease. By timing our applications, we are able to keep your lawn looking nice and healthy, while preventing possible problems.
  • Fertilization: Just as a balanced diet works best for people, the same is true of lawns - they need balanced fertilization to remain healthy. With properly timed fertilization, your lawn will maintain good color, density and vigor. We apply top quality, slow-release balanced fertilizers specially formulated for your grass type in order to supplement the natural nutrients in your soil.
  • Crabgrass: Crabgrass can quickly choke your lawn if not controlled. We apply a pre-emergent herbicide during Step 2, which will prevent most crabgrass from germinating in the spring and early summer, and follow up with a post-emergent herbicide during Steps 3 & 4.
  • Broadleaf Weeds: There are many types of broadleaf weeds such as dandelions, clover, thistles and creeping charlie just to name a few. These weeds, if present, will be carefully sprayed with an effective post-emergent herbicide during Steps 2, 3, 4, and 5.
  • Core Aeration: Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn. Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils, those with a thatch buildup and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up."
