Fertilization & Weed Control

If you want to have a green, lush lawn that is a showplace for your home, 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. Sharp Lawns can help you get your lawn in the best shape of its life with our customized 5 step lawn fertilization program. If implemented properly, lawn fertilizing can make your lawn healthier and greener than it was in the years past, and your neighbors will envy your sharp looking lawn.

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 overgrowth of algae and aquatic weeds caused by the fertilizer runoff, which can hurt wildlife and the water supply in your area.

The fertilizer that we 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. We also apply 3 applications of surface insect control on round 2, 3, and 4 to help control pesty lawn damaging insects such as chinch bugs, and armyworms.

Grub Control

We stop the cycle before grub problems start

Grub Larva feed on grass roots, causing large patches of turf to wilt or die resulting in a patchy brown lawn. Then overnight raccoons and skunks come along and dig up your lawn looking for grubs to eat making your lawn look even worse.

Grub Control helps stop the eggs from developing into the damaging, hungry grub larva that feed on your grass roots. To be effective Grub Control is applied in the summer when eggs are present before they become larva. Grub Control will be applied to Application 3 of our Lawn Care Program.
