Lawn Fertilization

If you want to have a green, lush lawn that is a showplace for your yard, it is not enough to water your lawn, mow it regularly, and treat it for weeds. You also need to fertilize it in order for it to grow and thrive. Lawn Doctor can help you get your lawn in the best shape of its life with our customized lawn fertilization service. If implemented properly, lawn fertilizing can make your lawn healthier and greener than it was last year, and your neighbors will marvel at your green thumb!

Why You Need Professional Fertilization Services

Fertilizer provides the needed nutrients in order for your lawn to grow lush and green. Without it, the grass may not grow as well, or as full. It may also not be as green as you want it to be.

Fertilizing your yard is something you could try on your own, but you may not apply the product correctly, or evenly. If some areas of the lawn get more coverage than others, they will grow more than the other parts, giving your lawn a very uneven look.

There is also the chance you put on too much fertilizer which can lead to a variety of issues. First is thatch buildup in your yard. The second is potential negative environmental impact of applying too much. This includes overgrowth of algae and aquatic weeds caused by the fertilizer runoff, which can hurt wildlife and greenery in your area.

The fertilizer that the our professionals apply is a slow release product, which means that your lawn will get the nutrients it needs over time, as opposed to all at once. This is an added benefit to our fertilization treatments.

For the individual needs of your lawn, we have also created Custom Lawn Care Services. Whatever problems that you have, we know the local lawn fertilizer service you require.

Why Let Lawn Doctor Fertilize Your Lawn?

Fortunately, there is a way to avoid the common pitfalls involved with fertilizing your lawn. Lawn Doctor offers fertilizer applications in an environmentally sound way. Our Turf Tamer® lawn equipment can treat every inch of your lawn with the right amount of fertilizer, ensuring even coverage, and helping you to get the lawn of your dreams. And by putting on the right amount of coverage, we can also help prevent hazardous environmental impacts to your neighborhood.

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, as per the name – they grow 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 can apply pre-emergent weed control treatments to take care of your weeds as well.

Cool season grasses, like Kentucky bluegrass, generally need fertilizer treatment 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, though, as well as the current state of the lawn, will also determine exactly how often you will need a fertilizer treatment. Your Lawn Doctor professional will be able to determine exactly when you should apply treatments for optimum results. We know every lawn is unique, and we treat your lawn with custom treatments designed 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 can help. Our natural fertilizer can also help your lawn grow and thrive without any 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 continual 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.  But a typical yard does require four to six applications of fertilization each year.
