Lawn Care: Fertilization Weed Control in Lincoln
In Lincoln, all lawn care fertilizers are not equal. And not all weed controls are effective for what you want to accomplish.
In fact, most homeowners are not aware that fertilizer and weed control are two entirely different products in the lawn care process. You can go to the big retail stores and buy a pretty fertilizer package that promises green grass and a weed free lawn. But because it’s shipped nationwide, the ingredients in that package may not even be relevant to the soil and grass types here in the Lincoln area! That’s where we come in. Even in Lincoln, it is important to recognize that areas like Capital Beach have totally different soil and grass types than the South Pointe area. That’s why our licensed lawn technicians assess your lawn at each visit to provide a more encompassing lawn care service and give YOUR lawn exactly what it needs. If a green and weed free lawn is your destination, our Premium 6-Step Fertilizer/Weed Control Program is the highway to get there.
How does the program work?
Your lawn has a growing season. This is all dependent upon weather and soil temperatures, but generally speaking our program begins in March/April and ends in November/December. We offer a 5-Step Program or a 6-Step Program (this means adding in the grub control application). Throughout the growing season, there are 5 separate and specific fertilizer/weed control applications. Different times of year call for different types of fertilizers that your lawn is hungry for. We feed your lawn the nutrients that it craves during each point in the season to grow thick and strong. Healthy, thick grass is your best prevention to ever having a problem with weeds in the first place.
However, your lawn is still susceptible to an army of different weeds that come in separate waves during the year. Fortunately, our technicians have the enemy weed’s battle plans. We know when each type of weed wants to attack, and we know how to fight back for the best weed control.
When do I begin?
It is important to understand that getting a thick, green lawn is a process. One application of fertilizer and lawn treatment to spray weeds will not solve long term problems. You can sign up at any point during the season and hop into the current application rotation, but this service is designed to work as an ongoing program. We are encouraging the grass to grow thicker with each application, and continually killing off new weeds as they appear.
Do I need to do anything after a lawn treatment?
When it comes to your lawn, there are three variables at play: anything we do, anything you do, and anything nature does. We work together with you to combat whatever nature throws our way. What does that mean? After each fertilizer application, we provide you with the a summary of what we did, what you can expect to see, and what we need you to do. This is where you will find any pertinent watering directions for this specific application.
We don't just mow.
In Lincoln, lawn care is a broad term that can be used to describe many different services ranging from lawn mowing and lawn fertilizer, to pruning bushes and aerating. That’s why we’ve made it a dedicated point to show that when you get lawn care from Summit, you have so many more options than what you may have originally thought. Although our Premium Mowing and Premium Fertilization/Weed Control Programs are our most popular services, check out our residential lawn care services and see if anything else we have to offer suits your fancy!
