Sample Lawn Fertilization and Nutrition Program:


This is the time when grass comes out of winter dormancy with a heavy appetite. It’s ready to develop in all directions. With enough proper nutrients at the right times, all of the lawn’s activities can be stimulated to produce a thicker, greener, more satisfying lawn.


  • fertilize– for nutrient supply and fast growth.
  • lime– for proper pH. May be done at any time of year.
  • crabgrass control– applied BEFORE crabgrass seeds start germinating
  • insect control– controls grubs, chinch bugs, army worms, and sod webworms.

early summer

The hot, tough part of summer is just ahead and grass should enter that period as strong and fortified as possible.


  • fertilize– earlier application is used up and this is an important step in keeping your lawn thick and green during the summer.
  • weed control– warmer spring days bring on new grass weeds such as dandelions, plantain, chickweed, etc.. Active weed control ingredients are absorbed by the plants through their leaves, eliminating plant and root

late summer

This is the problem period for lawns…the time when they most likely need first aid.


  • insect control– replenish active ingredients for control of grubs, chinch bugs, cutworms, sod webworms, etc.
  • fertilize– to give the essential nutrients drained by the summer heat.


This is the most important time for long range lawn development in New England. Natural conditions favor the grass plant’s well being. More than any other time of year, grass will actually multiple itself- thereby thickening and strengthening the overall lawn.


  • fertilize- a very important application to replenish the nutrient supply, stimulate root replacement and top growth thinned during the tough summer period.
