N-P-K - 3 Essential Nutrients Found in Fertilizers

  • Nitrogen - is an essential nutrient for plant growth, development, and reproduction. Unfortunately, it’s the most deficient essential plant nutrient worldwide.
  • Phosphorus - is essential for all living organisms. A plant must have phosphorus to complete its normal production cycle.
  • Potassium (K) - is required for plant growth and reproduction. Potash is defined as K2O and is used to express the content of various fertilizer materials containing potassium.

Custom Fertilization Options to Suit Your Needs

  • Core aeration prevents excess lawn thatch or heavy compaction under the grass surface. It can also starve the roots from essential elements. Compacted soils have too many solid particles in a certain volume of space. Plug cores removed from the ground allows water, air, and nutrients to get down to the ground. Deeper, stronger roots mean thick lush lawns, which require less water. 
  • Tree / shrub fertilization program: Two applications of fertilizer scheduled with inspection and treatment if needed help keep all of your ornamentals healthy and in top growing condition. Your trees and shrubs represent a growing investment worth protecting.
  • Insecticides / fungicides are used to control unwanted disease and insect damage.
  • Tree injections are a very effective way of curing many tree problems such as insects, diseases, and nutrient deficiencies. These injections are injected directly into the trunk within 12 inches of the ground. Each injection is about 4" to 6” apart around the entire circumference of the tree. The product is immediately available in the cambium layer just underneath the bark and is quickly translocated within 48 hours into the branches and upper canopy. It is superior to any liquid or granular applications. Also, it can be used as a preventative and suppression. This technique is highly recommended to protect your investment.
  • Soil testing is a soil sampling of different areas of your lawn. We send the samples out for analysis. It will let us know levels of NPK and minerals to help us keep your lawn in a great shape.  
  • Grub control
    • Insecticides used for grubs can be separated into two groups based on how they work: preventive chemicals and curative chemicals. Preventative insecticides control - one application in June – July for all season. The active ingredient in this chemical will not kill grubs in spring. The most effective way is the preventative way. The curative chemical is applied in spring and late summer / fall. It will kill grubs very quickly while they are eating the roots and doing damage. The lawn should be mowed prior to the application so that no weeds are flowering in the lawn when the insecticide is applied. These active ingredients can be toxic to bees if the bees visit flowers that were recently sprayed. Mowing prior to making the application will avoid this problem by removing the flowers. The chemical will need to be watered onto the plants.
    • Milky spore is a natural way to get rid of grubs. Developed by the USDA, Milky Spore bacteria controls the stage of the Japanese beetle and does not harm beneficial insects. Once the grub ingests the spore it begins to multiply, just one spore will multiply into 3 billion new spores in each grub. After the grub dies, in about a week, it will release billions of new spores back into the soil. Once back in the soil, it will stay dormant until the grub returns and repeats the cycle. This needs to be applied in spring, summer, and fall for two consecutive years. It is guaranteed for 10 years after the 6th application.
