Here’s How We Do It…

ROUND 1 / Mid-March through Mid-April

This round will help ‘spring’ your lawn to life. Our professionals will apply a balanced rate of high quality fertilizer as well as a pre-emergent herbicide that controls crabgrass and 45 other grassy and broadleaf weeds.

ROUND 2 / Mid-April through Mid-May

Your soil needs to breath and this round will help it do just that. A soil enhancer is applied that will increase the organic matter in the soil and promote root growth. Our professionals will also apply a post-emergent herbicide that will control annual and perennial broadleaf weeds.

ROUND 3 / Late May through Late June

We use only the best and most technologically advanced products at Grunder Green. During this round we will apply what is called and Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer that will enable your lawn to thrive by increasing its ability to take in nutrients. We will also apply a fungicide that will help prevent and deter any diseases from damaging your lawn. And, we will carefully, spot spray for grassy and broadleaf weeds.

ROUND 4 / July

During this round, we will apply a grub and insect control and a fungicide to prevent diseases from forming in your lawn. We will also spot spray grassy and broadleaf weeds.

ROUND 5 / Late August through Late September

In our quest to grow, lush, green grass, we will apply another application of the Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer that will enable your lawn to readily take in nutrients. Most of our lawns under this program really start to see improvement by this round. We will also spot spray grassy and broadleaf weeds.

ROUND 6 / Mid-November through Mid December

At Grunder Green, we know that this last round is one of the most important applications. We will apply another round of Enhanced Efficiency Fertilizer that helps strengthen and grow roots by allowing your grass plants to more readily take in nutrients. If there are any weeds, we’ll also spot spray them.
