With regular applications of balanced fertilizer throughout the year, Wesley’s Landscape & Lawncare can give your lawn the nutrients it needs for optimum growth. These nutrients include nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, each of which contributes significantly to the overall health of your grass. Nitrogen promotes foliage production, phosphorus encourages root and seed development, and potassium helps to hold water and maintain general vigor.

Many of our lawn care clients agree that when it comes to lawns, Wesley’s Landscape & Lawncare knows green. Call today to learn more about how you can have the nicest, deep-green lawn on the street!

Early-Spring Application

The early-spring application will promote spring green-up and recovery from winter stress. This application may include preventative crabgrass control. Broadleaf weed control will be applied as weather permits.

Spring Application

During this period of the year we will apply a balanced fertilizer to promote color, thickness and overall good health. It may also include preventative crabgrass control. In addition to feeding the lawn, Wesley’s will treat for broadleaf weeds and surface-feeding insects as needed.

Late Spring/Early Summer

Summer can stress your lawn. We will fertilize to prepare for the summer ahead, and we will also treat for weeds and surface-feeding insects as needed. We will be watching for the early stages of disease. If disease issues occur, we will inform you.

Early Summer Application

During the harsh summer months your lawn still needs to be fed to help fight drought, disease and insect stresses. We will apply a balanced summer fertilizer for these dry periods, and we will be on the lookout for weeds, insects and disease. We will keep you informed at all times. If requested, grub control is applied at this time.

Late Summer/Early Fall

We will continue to feed your lawn to encourage color, thickness and overall health. This treatment is designed to encourage recovery and green up your lawn. We will continue to watch for and treat surface-feeding insects and weeds as needed.

Early Fall Application

Late Fall Winterization

During colder weather your lawn will need a balanced feeding to recover from the stress of summer. These fall feedings help to prepare for the winter months ahead. In addition, we will continue to monitor for weeds, surface-feeding insects and disease.

Core Aeration

Core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. It can substantially improve turf health by controlling thatch, improving soil structure, helping to create growth pockets for new roots, and opening the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn. Aeration is recommended for all lawns on heavy clay soils and those with a thatch buildup.

Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil 1 to 3 inches in length from your lawn. After a few rainfalls, these cores “melt” back into the turf, mixing with whatever thatch exists on your lawn. The holes created by aeration catch fertilizer and water. Turf roots naturally grow toward these growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water move more freely into the root zone. Regular aeration also helps thatch to break down naturally by mixing the soil cores into the thatch and speeding up decomposition.
