Weed control and lawn care fertilizing are crucial aspects of maintaining a healthy and visually appealing lawn, especially in Atlanta. The climate encourages numerous weeds to grow and take over your property unless you stay on top of the process.
At the same time, the changes in temperature and humidity can cause significant stress on your grass. Proper fertilization with a watering plan can help your yard look green and lush throughout the year.
If you have dandelions or crabgrass taking over, contact our team today to discuss an effective weed control and lawncare plan.
How We Take Care of Your Atlanta Property
Effective weed control in Atlanta involves a combination of preventative and active measures. Here are the steps we take to ensure your care needs are effectively met with each service call.
Timing is critical for these services. Applying them too early or late can render them ineffective, especially when your primary need involves weed control.
We choose products based on your property’s unique profile so that only your weeds get targeted. Once these interventions occur and the appropriate fertilizer is applied, you can mow your lawn at the correct height, water deeply but infrequently, and aerate your soil to discourage ongoing weed growth.
How We Approach Lawn Fertilization
Fertilization is about nourishing your lawn to be lush and resilient. In Atlanta, the predominant grass types are warm-season varieties like Bermuda and Zoysia, which have specific needs.
Before fertilizing, it’s wise to test your soil. It varies in pH and nutrient levels, and testing reveals what your lawn needs.
Slow-release fertilizers are a popular choice because they provide a steady supply of nutrients over time, helping to avoid the surge-growth effect that can stress your lawn and make it more susceptible to pests and disease.
These services are best done in late spring or early summer when the grass is actively growing. This timing helps the lawn absorb nutrients efficiently.
It is essential to remember that over-fertilization can lead to runoff, which can be harmful to the city’s waterways. Our team always follows the recommended application rates and takes the appropriate steps to ensure your property complies with all local and state regulations.
