Special service applications such as lime, grub control, and aeration/seeding may be applied with, or within several days of, a regular fertilizer application.

Good culturalpractices suchas mowing and watering correctly areessential along with our regularly scheduled applications.
WEEDS: Most weeds will begin to wilt within two to three weeks depending upon the type of weed, moisture conditions, temperature and rate of growth. Some types of weeds may need several applications before wilting. If they do not wilt inthis time, please call us. Hard to control weeds such as Nutsedge will require additional applications at anextra charge. By mowing 3+ inches high you will help control weeds.
LIME: Pelletized limemay be applied at any time throughout the season because it isNON-BURNING. Pelletizedlimeisusuallybrownincolor,notwhite.Occasionally,itmaybeappliedwithinthesamedayor days of a regular fertilizer application.
GRUB CONTROL: Grub Control and a fertilizer are usually applied in one application. By using a specially blended mixture offertilizer andgrub control, wecan apply both applications atonetime. One application is made providing both of these services. You will receive one invoice with the total amount due for both applications.
CRABGRASS: Effective crabgrass control must be started early in the growing season. Complete control is impossible because of climatic conditions, timing ofapplication and cultural practices. Ideally, 90% control may be obtained by preventing the weed before its spring germination. By mowing 3+ inches high you will help control crabgrass.
