Why Does Fertilization Matter?

During the summer, you want to get out of the house, barbeque, let the kids have some fun, or just sit out in the warm sun. Our fertilizer and weed control services will not just gain your lawn the envious eye of your neighbors, but will also benefit you in the long run in multiple ways, so each year you’ll have the perfect area to relax in outdoors and enjoy the nice weather, and save money while doing so.

Some of the benefits of getting fertilizer treatments for your yard include:

A thicker and healthier lawn
Increased water efficiency
Added resistance against pests
Increased soil nutrition

Our lawn care process

We’ll start by giving your lawn an inspection, where we’ll evaluate what’s working and what isn’t. we’ll provide you with a customized recommendation of the services and treatments that will get your lawn ready for summer.

We start treating your lawn as soon as the snow clears. Our first treatment promotes growth & color using fertilizer and includes pre-emergent to prevent crabgrass. Post-emergent is also used for existing weeds and we treat new weeds on every visit.

If you want your lawn to be Peak strong, we recommend fertilizing every 4 or 5 weeks. Usually, this can be 6-7 applications per year. If you trust your lawn care to Peak Pest and Lawns, we’ll work out a custom program that’s just right for you.

our treatment

1. Pre and post-emergent weed control

Weed control products can be broken down into two primary categories: Pre-emergent or post-emergent weed control. While pre-emergent weed controls work by preventing weeds from germinating in the first place, post-emergent weed controls kill weeds that have already come out of the ground.

2. Slow-release fertilization

This is spread throughout the yard and releases all its nutrients over time so that nitrogen is always available. Slow-release fertilization is water-insoluble meaning it dissolves more slowly. The benefits of slow-release fertilizer are many. First, you don’t have to fertilize your lawn as often. You can also distribute fertilizer more evenly with the slow-release formulas, especially if you’re using granular versus liquid.

3. Soil conditioning

A soil conditioner is a material that measurably improves specific soil characteristics. It can also be used to increase plant growth. Simply put, soil conditioning is used to improve or rebuild soil to help provide the right conditions for seed germination and root proliferation – also known as “tilth”.

4. Grub preventative treatments

Grub treatments are applied sometime between late May and mid-July when grubs are active. Our Preventive Grub Control application uses an insecticide that works to immediately reduce if not completely eliminate, the population of grubs on the lawn.

5. Micronutrients

The eight essential turf grass micronutrients are: Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Zinc (Zn), Copper (Cu), Chlorine (Cl), Molybdenum (Mo), Boron (B), and Nickel (Ni). Sometimes your lawn needs a little extra love and care to become its best—micronutrients can provide that “little” something. These eight elements are essential for turf grass growth but are only needed in very small quantities.

Add-On Services

Alongside all of the benefits already mentioned above that come with our service, we also offer additional services that you may need depending on your goal for your property.

Additional Weed Treatment Areas

We often include patio pavers and other hardscape features with very good results. We are able to treat in flower beds and around landscape plants with this service, but this requires further explanation.

Retroactive Grub Control

Grubs become prevalent and damaging to lawns in the summer. They are in the larval stage of various beetle types and feed silently on the roots of your grass plants. They can cause significant damage to a healthy lawn in a very short amount of time.  We recommend this annual service applied during the summer months to prevent damage to your lawn before damage occurs.
