Lawn Care Program
Creating and maintaining a beautiful lawn takes more than just regular watering and lawn maintenance. At Perennial, we believe that providing the best products, at the correct time of the season, is the only road to success. Using tools such as individualized soil testing and turf analysis we can determine the best program for your property, and then apply the right amount of nutrients and to establish a healthy lawn with beautiful color and growth.
Our weed control begins in the early spring with a crabgrass and broadleaf weed pre-emergent application. This treatment will help reduce new weeds from germinating. To control existing weeds we apply liquid post-emergent weed killer throughout the season. With each visit to your property we will continue to spot treat the weeds keeping the weed population under control.
Your lawn is susceptible to a wide variety of harmful lawn diseases that can attack your turf. Most lawn diseases are caused by fungi that live off of your grass. These can affect your lawn resulting in areas of spots, circles, patches, and/or strange colors ranging from brown, to yellow, to red. A healthy lush lawn is the best defense, but if fungus diseases do appear in your turf, we offer treatments and programs to bring them under control. The best way to control lawns that are susceptible to disease is to schedule preventative applications.
Applied in the late spring through early summer, our preventative grub control application assists in protecting your lawn from the devastation caused by Grubs. Grubs are a product of the larvae of the adult beetle. A common sign of grub activity is if your turf can be rolled up like a carpet due to the extensive feeding on the roots. Additionally, a lawn being ripped up by animals such as birds, moles, and skunks is another sign of grubs being present. Our preventative application is a highly recommended product for our customers.
Recommended for the early fall, aeration is the mechanical process of removing soil cores/plugs from your thatch and soil and depositing them above the thatch layer. This process will alleviate soil compaction, promote expansion of your lawns root system, and allow water, nutrients, and air to be absorbed. After the lawn is core aerated we always recommend that the lawn be over-seeded with the type of grass seed that is appropriate for the growing environment of the property.
