Complete Guide to Lawn Care
The Basic Plan
Lawn care doesn't have to be hard or expensive.  You can get great results with just a basic plan and good old fashioned basic fertilizers.  Just apply a few times a year and you'll start seeing results!

Plan 1:  The Bare Bones:  This is a great plan if you don't have a lot to spend on your yard both in dollars and time.  Just two applications a year of fertilizer and lime will improve your current lawn and make your grass thickier and healthier.

Plan 2:  The Standard Plan:  Keep your yard looking good and healthy with a standard plan, feeding your lawn up to 4 times with 2 applications of lime.  Fertilize twice in the spring in April-June and then again in September.  If you want to boost your plan, then add a final feeding in October for a winterizing.  Lime once in the Spring and once in the fall and you'll see great results.


13-13-13
The workhorse of fertilizers!  This is your standard go to fertilizer for all programs.  Balanced nutrients provide a good source of nitrogen, phosphate and potash to feed your lawn.  This is your best all purpose blend available.
15-30-15
If you are seeding a new lawn or overseeding, then your best choice is 15-30-15.  This blend helps with the root structure of the grass and helps give your new lawn the best start possible.
24-6-12 plus Iron-Slow Release
This formula gives you the double power of a slow release nitrogen to keep your lawn growing throughout the summer and extra iron to green up your yard.  This is the perfect fertilizer to apply in late spring that will keep your yard growing all summer long!
32-0-0
If you have zoysia or burmuda, then this is the fertilizer for you!  Apply in late May or Early June and you'll see your yard floursih during the summer! 
Enhanced Plan
Now you want to take your lawn to your lawn to the next level.  Your ready to go from good to great, but you still don't want to spend an arm and leg to do it.  Don't worry!  We have a program that matches premium programs but a fraction of the cost.  You don't have to pay for the "Scott's" brand to get those results.  Products from ferti-lome and Hy Yield give you the same results at a reduced price.  Hy Yield products are good quality at a low price and the ferti-lome products are premium quality without the premium price tag.  Either way you go, you'll see better results and a better, thicker and healthier yard.

Plan 1:  The Enhanced:  We just take our basic plan and replace standard fertililzers with ferti-lome and Hy Yield brands.  Feed your lawn 2 or 3 times a year and at least one application of lime and you'll see great results.  It's easy, time effiecient and flexible to match your needs.

Plan 2:   The Ultimate:  This plan is the premium plan of lawn care.  When your serious about your lawn then this is the way to go!  Feed your lawn 2-3 times in the early spring through early summer.  Then wake up your lawn int he early fall with an application.  Then finally, put your yard to rest with a winterizer to give your lawn the nutrients it needs to survive the winter and then be ready to grow int he spring.  Add one or two applications of lime to the mix and you have the best lawn program available!
