A Coated granular fertilizer applied to help bring grass out of winter dormancy and promote spring green up. The fertilizer is coated with a pre-emergent for crabgrass control. This is the most effective method used to control crabgrass in the Northeast Iowa and Southeast Minnesota areas. Crabgrass is harder to control later in the season, so we strongly advise all of our customers to get this application.
This application is your spring dandelion and broadleaf control application. The late spring application is sprayed to control the weeds that are actively growing in your lawn. We have exceptionally good luck controlling weeds at this time. This includes your dandelions, plantains, and other broadleaf weeds. We also put down a organically based bio-solid fertilizer to help boost your lawns color and overall appearance. This is very common application among our customers.
Grubs in the Northeast Iowa area can cause great damage to your lawn. The grubs feed on the root system of your lawn causing brown spots and killing your turf. The grubs can be found in your lawn by pulling up on your turf. If the turf pulls up like carpet it is a common symptom of grub damage. We are seeing more and more of this in the area. The grub control also aids in keeping moles out of your lawn by limiting one of their main food sources in grubs. Lawns do need to have a rainfall or be watered in to move the treatment into the soil. We will also spot treat any weed that may be present at this time.
A dry, slow release, non-burning granular fertilizer applied to promote color and help turf survive our Northeast Iowa summers. We will also spot treat for yellow nutsedge. We will also spot-treat for crabgrass during this time if you have had the round one crabgrass preventer.
Fall is an excellent time to control those dandelions and other pesky looking weeds. Our fall application is a spray that controls creeping Charlie, dandelions and other broadleaf weeds for the following spring. We also put in an organically based fertilizer down to promote plant growth and healthy root development. Fall is the absolute best application you can do to keep your lawn free of weeds and keep the great color.
This heavy granular application of organically based fertilizer is designed to feed the turf additional nutrients needed to survive the harsh winter months here in Northeast Iowa and Southeast Minnesota. This could be the most beneficial fertilizer application of the year. This application is done late in the fall and really aids in the spring green up. Like all our fertilizers we are trying to promote dark green color and not so much for growth, this will keep you from mowing everyday.
We offer aeration and aeration with over seeding. Our aeration is done with our ride on machine that will pull core plugs from the soil. Doing this provides better water and nutrient absorption. It helps in the process of eliminating thatch while stimulating root growth. Our aerators have a drop seeder that can drop the seed directly in the plug holes. When doing this we will select the correct seed for your lawn. The aeration with over seeding can make a tremendous difference in your lawn. This is typically done in the fall months. If you have had any construction done on your home where they drove heavy equipment on the lawn, this would be a great treatment for your lawn to help with the compaction.
Greenlawn does offer mowing to their other great services. We will set the height of the mower to ensure maximum health of the turf. We will trim and blow the sidewalks off when we are finished. The mowing at this time is only offered in and around Decorah. We can mow your lawn on a schedule or mow your lawn if you are out of town vacationing.
