Lawn Fertilization and Weed ControlLawn Fertilization and Weed Control

We have specific fertilization programs formulated to create:

  • Improved thickness and green color
  • Quicker recovery from summer stresses
  • Increased tolerance to diseases and pests
  • Environmental benefits

The University of Purdue Extension authorities claim:

"In short, dense, healthy, properly fertilized lawns require fewer pesticides to manage weeds, diseases and insects. Lawns receiving periodic fertilization also help protect water quality by substantially reducing water runoff and potential soil losses."¹

Our lawn programs include weed control (for broadleaf weeds).

Establishing New LawnsEstablishing New Lawns

Beginning a new lawn on a new home site can be challenging for a number of factors – the soil, the type of grass seed, the time of year and proper care during the germination stage and early life of the plant. Some homeowner’s have such poor results from the wrong combination of these factors that they will entirely tear out and replace their existing lawn after a few years.

We have developed a specific process for establishing new lawns. We come alongside and advise you in the process. Then we will begin a fertilization, nutrient and weed control program designed specifically for the first year of a lawn before transition to your normal fertilization program.


Aeration of a lawn plays an important role in allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to penetrate down into the root system to spur a stronger, more vigorous lawn. Aeration should be done during the growing season – typically spring or fall for cool season grasses in the upper Midwest.

We have specialized equipment designed to do the job effectively and cost efficiently.

Over SeedingOver Seeding

Over seeding is a technique we use to thicken lawns. Several factors could be at play when lawns are thin or have bare spots:

  • the lawn may have suffered damage from hot, dry summer weather
  • the lawn may be in the early years of establishment
  • as grass matures it's reproductive capacity falls

In our region, over seeding should be done in the late summer or early fall. An effective over seeding process typically involves aeration.

Lawn Pest and Disease ControlLawn Pest and Disease Control

A healthy lawn is the first and best step for preventing lawn pests and diseases. Periodically, though, a lawn may experience specific attacks. We can diagnose the problem and apply the proper treatment to solve the problem.

Flea and Tick ControlFlea and Tick Control

Do you have pets that spend time outdoor in your lawn? We provide specific applications to control fleas and ticks and help protect your pets.

Perimeter Pest Control

Perimeter Pest Control

We provide a routine service of spraying around the exterior perimeter of your home up to four times per year. This creates a barrier that keeps bugs where they belong – outside of your house!
