Properly administered applications are the key to a beautiful lawn throughout the year! Professional Grounds offers a complete line of services to ensure proper turf care, including weed control, fertilization, and liming.
We offer a comprehensive program to address and eliminate weed and soil problems on your property. First, we analyze your soil. Then, we recommend a customized application schedule starting with a pre-emergent in the spring to prevent unwanted weeds in your turf, such as crab and goosegrass. Applications made post-emergent are applied in the late spring and summer to treat broadleaf weeds like dandelions and chickweed. Fertilizer is then used in the spring and fall to provide a continual source of nutrients to keep the turf green and healthy.
Applications of Lime may be used to balance the amount of free hydrogen in the soil. A pH of around 6.8, which represents the measurement of available hydrogen levels, is important as it provides the optimum availability of nutrients to the turf. If your pH is too low, key micronutrients may not be accessible to the turf, thus affecting its overall health and development. At Professional Grounds we use a highly specialized product called Solu-Cal. This product has four times the activity of conventional sources of lime, which allows for a more rapid response and quicker correction of pH within the soil structure.
