Our We Mean Green Lawn Care Program
Your five treatments are performed over the course of five visits throughout the year, starting with spring and ending with a winterization treatment.
- Early spring: This is the time of year to boost your lawn with a balanced fertilizer and pre-emergent crabgrass control.
- Late spring: It is important to establish strength and growth during this time. We use a slow release, well-balanced fertilizer and weed control (as needed).
- Early/Late summer: With the hot weather, hitting Buffalo and the surrounding areas at this time, it is important to establish strength for the grass. Another treatment of slow-release fertilizer is given and weed control included (if needed).
- Early fall: This is the time to encourage new growth for your lawn. We want to green up the lawn and prepare it for winter. Our technicians do this using a blend of fertilizers, weed control, and time-released nitrogen.
- Winterizer: It is important to establish root development and build strength before the cold months with a balanced fertilizer that includes an increased percentage of nitrogen.
Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium - The Three Main Ingredients
Our professionals are skilled at diagnosing and treating your lawn with the correct nutrients it needs to thrive. Some fertilization treatments may need to be altered depending on the current deficiencies in your lawn. Your lawn requires three main nutrients, N-P-K to grow correctly and maintain that vibrant, green look we all want in our yards. When you see numbers on a bag of fertilizer, for example, 10-10-10 it represents 10% Nitrogen, 10% Phosphorous, and 10% Potassium.
Nitrogen is an essential mineral used in large quantities on lawns all year long. This mineral is responsible for the green in your grass as it is essential to the production of chlorophyll. If your grass is dull and merely light green, you likely have a nitrogen deficiency!
Phosphorus is necessary for the growth of roots. If you have a brand new lawn, your fertilizer should be high in phosphorus to promote healthy growth. Phosphorus is also important for fruit or flower production, photosynthesis, and energy transfer.
The final mineral needed for grass growth is potassium. This mineral is directly related to water retention and needed to retain and absorb other nutrients. If your grass has a potassium deficiency it can turn the blades yellow and your plants and turf will not be able to gain other nutrients to thrive.
