Lawn Fertilization

Our 7-application program is designed to provide your turf with the necessary nutrient requirements to sustain a proper turf stand as outlined for our climate and soil conditions by Michigan State University.

7 Application Program

Round 1
A Dry granular feritlizer or Liquid Application to wake up turf  for quick spring green up and Dimension Pre-Emergent crabgrass control, to prevent crabgrass germination, which typically will show in the turf stand in June or July.  Round 1 applied in Mid March thru Mid April.

Round 2
Liquid fertilizer, Three Way systemic broadleaf and Dimension Pre-Emergent crabgrass control, to prevent crabgrass germination, which typically will show in the turf stand in June or July. Weed control is to eliminate all broadleaf weeds in the truf. Weed control cannot be applied until all weeds are up and to adult stage. Once there is sufficient foliage and the weed control is applied, it is absorbed into the plant tissue and is killed root and all. All weed controls are post-emergent and any applications done before weeds are to adult stage are useless. Liquid weed control is the best form of weed control. Round 2 applied in Mid April thru May.

Round 3
Dry granular slow release all mineral fertilizer with spot-treatment of weeds. Round 3 typically consists of all mineral fertilizers with 20-50% slow release encapsulation to help regulate the growth of turf during the start of the hot season. Our early-summer blend also contains iron for deep green color without causing excessive growth. Round 3 Early June thru late June.

Round 4
Dry granular slow release all mineral fertilizer with spot-treatment of weeds. Round 4 typically consists of all mineral fertilizers with 20-50% slow release encapsulation to help regulate the growth of turf during the remainder of the hot season. Our late-summer blend also contains iron for deep green color without causing excessive growth. Round 4 applied in Early July thru Late July.

Round 5
Dry granular slow release all mineral fertilizer with spot-treatment of weeds. Round 4 typically consists of all mineral fertilizers with 20-50% slow release encapsulation to help regulate the growth of turf during the remainder of the hot season. Our late-summer blend also contains iron for deep green color without causing excessive growth. Round 5 applied in Early August thru Late August.

Round 6 Liquid fertilizer, Three Way systemic broadleaf Weed control is to eliminate all broadleaf weeds in the truf. Weed control cannot be applied until all weeds are up and to adult stage. Once there is sufficient foliage and the weed control is applied, it is absorbed into the plant tissue and is killed root and all. All weed controls are post-emergent and any applications done before weeds are to adult stage are useless. Liquid weed control is the best form of weed control. Round 6 applied in Early September thru Mid October.

Round 7
