Lawn Care

 

Lawn Fertilizer and Weed Control Programs

LawnGreat Falls soils are typically alkaline (high Ph) with low amounts of organic matter and often lack certain nutrients required to produce healthy green turf. In other words, you can become very frustrated with typical fertilizer products and waste a lot of water, time and money pursuing a nice landscape!

The secret to our success is offering an exclusive blend of organic based nutrients that lower Ph, enhance topsoil, improve plant health, and address several specific nutrient deficiencies. While common fertilizers provide 1 to 3 basic minerals in synthetic form, our product has several other micro-nutrients along with organic matter to enhance the soil biology and Ph.

We enjoy figuring out solutions that best serve your individual landscape and budget. Below is a list of lawn services we can recommend based on the current condition of your lawn.

Lawns typically require 4 to 5 feedings per season, 6 for optimum color and density. Depending on weed populations, 3 to 4 of these applications will contain weed control. We will spot treat any weeds on the applications that do not contain weed control. (Organic only programs excluded)

Gold Lawn Care ProgramIncludes 6 applications of fertilizer and weed control to keep your lawn looking pristine. This Program includes controlling weeds and grass in sidewalks and concrete driveways. Applications are applied approximately every 30 to 35 days

Silver Lawn Care Program – Includes 5 applications of fertilizer and weed control to keep your lawn looking healthy and beautiful. This Program includes controlling weeds and grass in sidewalks and concrete driveways. Applications are applied approximately every 36 to 41 days

Basic Lawn Care Program - Includes 4 applications of fertilizer and weed control to maintain your lawn, keeping it healthy and weed free. Only recommended if your lawn shows signs of heat stress and/or goes dormant during the heat of the year. Applications are still applied approximately every 36 to 41 days like the Silver Lawn Care Program, but we skip the 4th application during the heat of the year. Well watered lawns continue to actively grow during the heat and will need more fertilizer per season and therefore should be scheduled for the Gold or Silver Lawn Care Program.

 

Core Aeration

Should be done at least once each year

Core aeration is the process of perforating the soil, as well as any thatch layer that might exist, removing a core or plug of soil and depositing that core on the surface to break down. Aerating will allow water, air and fertilizer to penetrate all the way down to the root zone. This in turn allows the roots to grow deeper, creating a healthier and thicker lawn.

Many sports field and golf course managers will aerate up to 5 times a year, which proves you simply cannot put too many holes in your lawn. For residential yards we recommend at least one or two aerations each year.

Customers with underground sprinkler systems will need to flag the sprinkler heads that are within the lawn area.

 

Insect and Disease Control

You may not be the only one enjoying your lawn! Turf damaging insects and even fungal disease may periodically infest your space. A telling sign may be color changes, or areas that lose color despite being watered.

Sprinkler System Winterization

Sprinkler System Winterization

Winterizing your sprinkler system - Removing water from the pipes, valves and sprinkler heads is essential before freezing occurs. It's the best way to protect your irrigation investment from potentially serious damage this winter.

The cost for most sprinkler systems will only be $65.95.

Larger systems, systems pumping out of wells or the river, or systems out of town may accrue additional charges.
