Environmentally Responsible Treatments that Will Keep Your Lawn Beautiful and Thriving


Lawn Fertilization

Each lawn is different and our plan for yours will be unique to its needs. We take your property seriously and prioritize communication with you about ongoing challenges and progress. Our programs are science-based and expertly managed by people who love what they do.

Lawn Fertilization Programs

Premium Lawn Care Program

Our premium lawn care program is our most popular and most traditional fertilization program. This program uses balanced, custom-blended fertilizers with slow-release nitrogen. This program includes:

  1. Spring: fertilizer with pre-emergent crabgrass control
    • Soil Analysis will be completed during this visit. *This is only done on the first visit, then every 3 years.
  2. Late Spring: fertilizer with a second application of pre-emergent crabgrass control
    • Grub control
  3. Summer: Bio-stimulant, soil conditioner and natural nutrient source all-in-one
  4. Late Summer: fertilizer and spot weed control as needed
  5. Fall: fertilizer and lime application

Bridged Lawn Care Program

Our bridged program uses organic fertilizers but also utilizes herbicides and Grub Control is optional. This program is compost-based and environmentally responsible. This fertilizer program is sustainable, renewable, and innovative resulting in a superior product that recycles organic materials back into the soil, improving soil and turf health. We will use weed and insect control products as needed to prevent damage to your lawn and spot spray weeds for highly effective yet minimally invasive weed and pest control.

Organic Lawn Care Program

Soil health is the cornerstone of organic lawn care, and achieving great soil quality doesn’t happen overnight. Transitioning away from conventional lawn care begins with a soil analysis. It’s important to understand that maintaining soil health is essential for a lawn’s natural capacity to fend off weeds, pests, and disease. Our organic program is free of pesticides and includes only our organic fertilizers. The first few years of building an organic lawn can be transitional, so don’t get discouraged.

All of our Lawn Fertilization Programs Include:

  • After service technician recommendations and notes
  • Free Service Calls

Soil Testing & Analysis: We consider Soil Testing to be the backbone of our lawn fertilization programs: it is essential before we begin lawn care. Healthy soil has sufficient organic matter and nutrients, in proper balance. Initial soil tests provide information about pH level, nutrients, extractable heavy metals, cat-ion exchange capacity, and percentage of organic matter. We use these test results to determine what your soil needs.

Grub Control: White grubs are the larvae of beetles that damage lawns by feeding on the roots and are often difficult to control. This application will target small grubs along with some surface insects.
The product, when used properly, does not present a hazard to humans, domestic animals, or beneficial insects.

Lime: Lime helps to increase pH level of soil, which keeps pH levels neutral and increases lawn health. At Natural Tree & Lawn Care, we only apply Lime on an as-needed basis to correct pH levels
that encourage nutrients for soil health.

Aeration: Lawn aeration is a great technique for improving root systems and reducing compacted soil. Aeration is performed in late summer or early fall to prevent weeds from germinating in the
soil.  When needed, aeration will be recommended in the spring but typically the recommendation is to perform aeration and seeding in the Fall.

Overseeding: If you have a lot of weeds such as crabgrass, thin turf is often the cause. Bare spots in soil offer an area for weeds to germinate, which is why we overseed to ensure the only growth in your lawn is healthy.
