GreenWorx is committed to lush green, weed free lawns. Below is our approach to
meeting this goal. We recommend all the services listed below. There are some
additional services we consider one time turf care services but are not listed here as
they are not needed annually.
If you have a warm season lawn such as Bermuda or Zoysia, this plan is not for you. We do have a plan for warm
season grasses where we fertilize through the summer months. Please call for details.
Fertilization applications are numbered and weed control applications are lettered.
Round 1 (Feb) – The first round of fertilization applies ½ pound of nitrogen to the
soil to ready the turf for its most active growing season. This application also has a
pre-emergent to help keep summer annual weeds like crab grass under control. If
winter annual weeds are observed in the surf at this time, a post-emergent is applied.
Some weeds will need a second application to be controlled.
Round 2 (Late March) – The second round of fertilization applies ½ pound of
nitrogen to the soil to continue feeding the turf through the rest of the spring. This
application also has a pre-emergent to extend the weed control for summer annual
weeds like crab grass. If any winter annual weeds are observed in the turf at this
time, a post-emergent is applied.
Rounds 1 & 2 are meant to control summer annual weeds and give the lawn a total of
one pound of nitrogen for spring growth. Perennial weeds (Clover/Dandelion) are
not controlled with a pre-emergent. No fertilizer should be applied after April 15th
Round A (May) – An inspection of turf health and a post emergent application is
made to control perennial weeds like clover and dandelion. Some weeds may need a
second application to be eradicated. Preventative Fungicide applications can be
made at this time for an additional fee.
Round B (June) – An inspection of turf health and a post emergent application is
made to control perennial weeds (Clover/Dandelion). Irrigation control is evaluated
for summer months. Fungicide applications can be made at this time if needed for an
Round C (Aug) – An inspection of turf health. Evaluate preparation needs for fall
seeding. Apply post emergent weed control if needed.
Round 3 (Sept) – This application will gives a boost of nitrogen and phosphorus
(phosphorus may not be needed) to help bring lawns out of dormancy. This
application also ensures plenty of nutrients available for seedlings. Weed control is
suspended until seedlings have matured.
Round 4-D (Nov-Dec) – A ½ pound application of nitrogen will keep levels
consistent through the growing season. Winter weeds are also controlled at this
round with a post emergent application.
Soil tests should be taken every 2 - 4 years to ensure proper nutrient levels are
applied to the turf. Soil tests also give pH readings and give lime recommendations.
Soil samples are $65 for the first sample and $15 for additional samples.
