1. Early spring fertilizing
This is the perfect time of year to fertilize your lawn as it awakens from its winter slumber. By fertilizing in the early spring, you help strengthen the turf’s root system, restore its carbohydrates reserves and help it prepare for the long growing season.
2. Late spring fertilizing
Before the summer heat bears down on your fragile lawn, we provide just the right amount of fertilizer to keep it strong and healthy.
3. Summer fertilizing
A lawn’s health and growth depends on a number of factors, such as air and soil temperature, environmental conditions, water, mowing and other cultural processes. To help your lawn survive the usually dry, hot summer, we provide your lawn with a balanced dose of slowly-released nutrients.
4. Autumn fertilizing
A fall fertilizing provides turf with the right amount of nutrients to keep it looking healthy, fresh and green through autumn. Nothing looks better than a lush green lawn amid the changing colors of the season.
Prior to the winter, it’s crucial your lawn receives one last dose of fertilizer with less nitrogen and more potassium. This application focuses on providing nutrients to root systems so turf can build carbohydrate reserves and prepare for the long, harsh winter. Potassium is a key nutrient that helps protect turf from diseases, bolsters cell walls, encourages root development and improves water intake.
6. Autumn lime
New England’s soil is notoriously acidic, making it difficult for grass and other plant species to grow. Our lime application won’t get your soil completely back to neutral, but it will move the needle much closer to that setting. In general, we advise against soil that is too neutral because it’s more prone to encouraging the growth other noxious, annoying weeds like annual bluegrass.
7. Grub prevention
It doesn’t matter if you’ve lived in your home for 30 years and your lawn has never been chewed up by grubs. We call that being lucky! Grubs love New England’s soil, and they’re just as likely to feed on your well-established lawn as they are newer homes in your neighborhood. Our grub prevention application ensures these damaging insects skip over your lawn as they search for viable food sources.
8. Crabgrass pre-emergent barricade
It’s critical your lawn receives the proper amount of crabgrass control each year. Why? Because crabgrass seeds can stay viable in the soil for over two years! Our control lasts up to six months, but it – like all crabgrass controls – must be watered in for maximum protection.
9. Weed treatments
Prior to applying herbicides, we’ll evaluate your lawn’s weed problems and make appropriate recommendations. There are countless weed species, so it’s important not to blanket-spray your lawn with weed control. Not only is this an unhealthy practice for you and your family, it can also damage lawns.
Weed species we treat include:
- Annual weeds: This weeds die at the end of each growing season, but they’re likely to grow consistently throughout the year.
- Perennial weeds: These noxious weeds constantly sprout each year until they’re treated or their seeds or bulbs are removed.
10. Insect control (if needed)
Many lawn companies blanket spray insect control across your lawn whether you ask for it or not. This is completely unnecessary, and it not only damages the environment but can also make insect species more resistant to insecticides. We focus on helping you grow a beautiful, healthy lawn that can tolerate a certain amount of insects. However, if your lawn becomes infested while you’re signed on with us, we’ll get rid of them for free.
1. Tick control
Ticks are tiny insects that love to live in brush, grassy and wooded areas, and places that are damp. Ticks feed off the blood of mammals and reptiles and can spread diseases such as Lyme disease, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, tularemia, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. GreenAce is serious about keeping your family and pets safe from ticks. That’s why we highly recommend signing on to our tick control program.
2. Lawn aeration
Aerating involves plugging small holes from your turf to allow air, water and nutrients to flow easier to root systems. Over time your lawn’s soil becomes compact because of environmental conditions, and foot and machine traffic. This procedure helps loosen the soil so your lawn receives the full benefits from our lawn fertilization program.
3. Post-emergence crabgrass control
Each crabgrass plant can produce upwards of 155,000 seeds a year, and spread for miles in either direction. Once soil temperatures rise to roughly 55 degrees, this weedy grass emerges, suffocating desirable grass species such as bluegrass, rye and fescue.
Crabgrass is very difficult to control, especially along the edges of sidewalks, driveways and walkways. And once crabgrass begins to develop, pre-emergent herbicides have little to no effect on killing the weeds. For lawns that need an extra touch-up, we’ll apply a stronger post-emergent herbicide.
