Fertilizing your lawn is very important in maintaining
a lush green lawn. By keeping the lawn dense, it is less prone
to weeds and more likely to endure the summer months when
it is hot and dry. Nitrogen is the main ingredient in fertilizer
that gives your lawn that dark green color. It must be replaced
several times a year to maintain color because it is not held
by the soil like phosphorus and potassium.
Keeping your lawn dense may not always keep the weeds out
of your lawn and it is important to apply a weed control product
throughout the growing season. A liquid form, post-emergent
spray is most affective in controlling those nasty summer
weeds like, dandelions, clover, spurge, and creeping Charlie.
Doug’s applies fertilizer combined with a weed control
product up to three times a year on commercial and residential
lawns. Timing of each application depends on weather conditions
and customer request. Two more applications can be applied
to maximize your lawns potential. Each of those applications
are in a granule form and one is applied in the early spring
and one in late fall.
Below is the list of applications that Doug’s applies
each growing season.
EARLY SPRING APPLICATION: A granular fertilizer to stimulate
growth and deepen lawn color and crabgrass preventer to control
crabgrass and foxtail.
LATE SPRING APPLICATION: A liquid phosphorus free fertilizer
to maintain color and thicken turf and a blanket broadleaf
weed control for dandelions and other broadleaf weeds.
SUMMER APPLICATION: A liquid phosphorus free fertilizer to
maintain color and thicken turf during summer stress time
and a spot broadleaf weed control for tough summer weeds.
FALL APPLICATION: A liquid phosphorus free fertilizer to
maintain color and thicken turf and promote root development
and a blanket broadleaf weed control for dandelions and other
LATE FALL APPLICATION: A granular fertilizer to help your
lawn over winter and get a quick start in the following spring.
A 10% discount is offered to customers who take a five or
four step application program if the customer prepays and
