Why You Need Professional Fertilization Services in Boston

Fertilizer provides the needed nutrients for your lawn to grow lush and green. Without it, the grass is unlikely to grow healthy and full. It may also not be as green as you want it to be.

Optimal fertilization results occur when the product is applied accurately, with correct amounts evenly. If coverage is inconsistent, growth will be as well, making your lawn look sloppy.

Too much fertilization also has its negative impact, including causing thatch buildup that can, among other things, harbor large populations of disease-causing organisms and insects, causing an increase in pest problems in your yard. Applying too much fertilizer can have a potentially negative environmental impact, such as an overgrowth of algae and aquatic weeds caused by the fertilizer runoff, which can damage wildlife and greenery.

The fertilizer that the Lawn Doctor professionals apply is a slow release product, which means that your lawn will get the nutrients it needs over time. In particular, this provides a small but steady supply of nitrogen – the nutrient responsible for green growth and optimized health, which reduces the risk of disease and fungus growth.

For the individual needs of your lawn, we offer Custom Lawn Care Services. Whatever issues your lawn may have, we know the right applications to address them, factoring in your location and grass type..

How Many Fertilizer Treatments Will Your Lawn Need?

There is no one size fits all rule for fertilizer treatments. The number of treatments you will need, and when the yard should be treated, can depend on a variety of factors.

The first is the type of grass you have. Warm season grasses like St. Augustine need fertilizer treatments from late spring until fall, growing best in the warm seasons. You want to be careful, though, when the first fertilizer treatment is applied, as you do not want to encourage weeds to grow. Lawn Doctor of Boston can apply pre-emergent weed control treatments to take care of weeds as well.

Cool season grasses, like Kentucky bluegrass, generally need fertilizer treatments in spring, fall, and occasionally winter, depending upon your local climate. These grasses grow best in cool seasons, so you may not want to fertilize during the warmest time of the year.

Your local weather conditions, and the current state of the lawn, are the key factors in determining exactly how often you will need a fertilizer treatment applied. Your Lawn Doctor professional will be able to determine precisely when you should apply treatments for optimum results. We know every lawn is unique, and we treat your lawn with custom treatments designed specifically for your yard’s needs.

Our Natural Fertilization Services

Using a natural fertilizer can stimulate natural soil life, strengthen your lawn’s natural defense systems, lowers drought stress and improve overall root growth. If you want to use a more organic or natural fertilizer treatment for your lawn, Lawn Doctor of Boston can help. Our natural fertilizer can also help your lawn grow and thrive without environmental risks.

The Lawn Maintainer Care Fertilization Program

Our local lawn experts can give you a one-time solution, but what we really want to achieve is never-ending lawn perfection. Lawn Doctor’s Maintainer Care offers a regular, fertilization program that will keep your grass lush, thick as well as disease and weed -free.

Since our fertilization programs are aimed at fulfilling the requirements of your individual lawn, the timeframe for treatments is not exact.  Unlike other fertilizing companies, we design a fertilization program for your lawn’s specific needs.  A typical yard requires four to six applications of fertilization each year.
