Know Your Soil
Soil testing will give you a better understanding of what the soil needs to help your lawn reach its full potential.


Know Your Spreader
Knowing exactly how much fertilizer your spreader is putting down will make for a more accurate application and a better-looking lawn.


Weed Control
Pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control are important to keep competition between weeds and your turf low.


Water Practices
Most granular fertilizers benefit greatly from being watered in after application. During the summer your turf needs 1” of water per week. The goal is to keep the soil moist 4” – 5” deep to promote deeper root growth which is vital for a healthy yard.


Mowing Practices
Spending money on fertilization is only beneficial if all aspects of the turf care are done right. Never cut more than 1/3 of the leaf surface at a time and always keep lawn mower blades sharp.


When To Apply:
Slow-release fertilizer to manage growth and prevent heat stress. Stop lawn destructions! Apply insect control to protect against insects that damage the turf.

Late Summer: Fertilizer for fall growth and to restore vitality after summer stress. Control fall-blooming dandelions and other weeds.

Late Fall: Fertilizer to promote healthier, deeper root system and protect against winter injury. Prepares lawn for faster spring green-up. Spot-apply weed control for

stubborn emerged weeds.
