Great lawns and landscapes need proper drainage, proper watering, and good soil. The best way to improve your soil without flat out replacing it, is by aeration, topdressing, and a comprehensive fertilizer program. When it comes to feeding your lawn and landscape, it is important to treat the soil as well as the plant.
Our program is designed to encourage healthy alive soil that grows healthy lush turf and plants. Our granular fertilizer works to build your soil's structure while feeding the microorganisms living in it. By using a slow release product, your soil continues to take in nutrients that benefit your lawn and landscape. Once we spread the granular fertilizer, we spray your turf and flower beds with John's Recipe for foliar feeding and Agrispon for microorganism soil building. This drenches your landscape and soil with vital nutrients to encourage the lushness you desire in your yard. This process also helps in regards to your cities water restrictions. Since we are spraying your lawn after each granular application, there is no need for you to "water it in." Just continue your normal watering schedule. Each product for each application is specifically chosen to effectively work together, offering you a complete approach for your property.
We offer 5 applications a year. The schedule is as follows:
February – Corn Gluten Meal, Agrispon and John’s Recipe
Corn gluten meal is the high-protein fraction of corn. Nature's Guide® Corn Gluten Meal is an exceptionally pure, 60% protein corn gluten that is used as a natural lawn fertilizer. Iowa State University claims that it helps prevent weed seed germination. Therefore corn gluten meal should not be applied to areas planned for new seeding, because it may interfere with germination. Application in the early spring and again in the fall is recommended.
April – Texas Tee 6-2-4 Fertilizer, Agrispon and John’s Recipe
A “blended turf” fertilizer inoculated with a host of beneficial microbes, enzymes and amino acids and, with an N-P-K of 6-2-4 it is one of the most nutrient rich organic plant foods on the market.

By increasing microbial activity, Agrispon increases nitrogen fixation by microorganisms. This is a concentrated bio stimulant formulated from plant and mineral extracts.
A good fertilizer program is just a starting point for a properly maintained yard. Other factors that need to be considered are mowing height, water frequency and depth, aeration, top dressing and mulch. We take all factors into consideration when determining the proper height to mow your lawn. More shade requires taller grass blades and St. Augustine grass needs to be maintained taller than Bermudagrass. Summer time brings higher watering demands for your yard, and as rainfall increases during the winter months, the demand drops. So having your sprinkler system adjusted each season is crucial to proper growth, and prevention of disease and pest infestation. If your soil is too compacted due to people or pet traffic, you may need to aerate, and then have a top dressing applied to your lawn so that the roots can get air, nutrients for growth and water. Taking each of these factors into consideration will go a long way towards a healthy lush lawn that you can enjoy.
