A beautiful lawn can be yours. When you partner with Superior Lawn & Shrub Service, you can rest assured that we’ll be providing the foundation necessary for healthy turf year-round. Automatic treatments at the right times will deliver a beautiful lawn that is less susceptible to damage from insect pests, diseases, drought and other stresses.
We use only the highest-quality granular fertilizers applied at the correct rates and timing to promote a thicker, greener, more weed-resistant lawn. Our balanced fertilizers are formulated into slow-releasing mixtures to provide longer-lasting lawn color throughout the season
Broadleaf Weed Control
Superior Lawn & Shrub Service utilizes Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices in our use of weed controls. This means we apply broadleaf weed controls only where weeds are present, as opposed to blanket spraying the entire lawn with pesticides. This not only reduces pesticide use in our environment, but also causes less stress to the grass plant root systems. While there is no preventative treatment for broadleaf weeds, we do treat all weeds present during each visit. Repeat applications can also be made between regular visits if needed.
We highly recommend our preventative grub control treatment. Applied once a year at the correct time, this treatment provides year-round protection against damaging grub populations (which are very common in our area). We also inspect the lawn during each visit for any other turf-damaging insect problems and apply corrective treatments as needed.
Controlling crabgrass is best achieved by maintaining a thick lawn mowed at a height of 2 ½” to 3”, and applying a pre-emergent crabgrass control material before crabgrass germination begins in late spring. Our spring fertilization treatment includes this pre-emergent crabgrass control. We can also adjust our programs to apply two pre-emergent treatments to lawns that have more serious crabgrass problems.
Soils in our area are naturally acidic. This acidic condition can be reduced by applying limestone on a regular basis. As a result, more of the natural nutrients in the soil, which turf grasses need for healthy growth, become available for use. Yearly limestone treatments, along with proper fertilization, mowing and watering, help lawns to reach their full potential.
