Nothing ruins the health and looks of your lawn like weeds do. Our green lawn program is designed to get the best possible results for the health and vitality of your lawn. We use only the highest quality weed control products, along with premium fertilizer to assure you of a lush green healthy weed free lawn, season after season.
Program - Yearly Schedule
January - May and October - December:
Pre-emergent (Weed Control) Weed controls start early in the year and begin again in the late summer months. These applications aid in controlling weeds before they start. Once watered in, the pre-emergent weed control sets up a barrier on the soil to prevent weed seeds from germinating and becoming a problem.
Your technician will also spray for any weeds already established on all regular lawn care visits. We use a mixture of pre-emergent and fertilizer as an application to extend the control of weeds in the grass growing seasons. As always, there is no extra charge if we need to re-spray for weeds within 30 days after your application.
March - September:
Fertilizers (Spring, Early Summer Through Summer) GC-Landcare uses dry, granular fertilizers that are safe and clean to effectively feed the lawn through its root system. We include sulfur in our fertilizer applications throughout the year, not just once. This will benefit the soil PH levels and aids in loosening our Texas heavy clay soil, also regular sulfur applications will reduce or eliminate insects and other nuisance pests. Sulfur is a key ingredient to our long-term soil health in heavy clay soils. Urea-based nitrogen is a constant part of our green lawn program. These fertilizers are naturally slow-release. This will allow the turf to maintain an even color for a longer period. Some liquid fertilizers and the chemical base nitrates will not provide the long greening we can develop from our program. We can eliminate most surge growth from this type of feeding.
GC-Landcare’s, green lawn program can help you to achieve a great looking lawn by applying high quality fertilizer and pre-emergent at the right time and intervals to keep your lawn thriving while weeds disappear. Whatever the condition of your lawn it will respond to our green lawn program, tailored specifically for your lawn and our Texas climate.
