Nutrient Management and Soil Testing Your Baltimore Lawn
Soil testing is critical for determining the ideal fertilization blend required for your lawn. To test the soil, samples are collected and sent to an independent lab for analysis. The results will show your landscape’s soil pH and nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. That information can help Scientific Plant Service determine the ideal fertilizer application to encourage lawn growth.
Broadleaf Weed Control with Weed and Feed Lawn Care Service in Baltimore
Our three-step “weed and feed” program is crucial to our Baltimore lawn care maintenance company. This system provides your lawn nourishment while preventing broadleaf weed growth. The steps include:
- Applying POLYON fertilizer in early spring to release nitrogen through the summer. We add an herbicide to the fertilizer to prevent the germination of Goosegrass and Crabgrass.
- When weed activity peaks in late spring, we return to apply herbicide controls, treating active weed zones.
- Near summer’s end, we survey your lawn for weeds and apply POLYON for fall. The autumn fertilizer application gives your yard a head start for spring.
You can grow a robust, healthy lawn with the help of our excellent weed and feed system.
Core Aeration and Seeding for Baltimore Lawns and Athletic Fields
Aeration is one of the best ways to improve drainage and reduce landscape compaction, and applying new seeds after aeration can promote healthy growth for patchy areas of your Baltimore landscape. Our aerators and slit seeders vary in size to suit lawns anywhere from 2,000 square feet to 200 acres.
Core aeration is a crucial part of our athletic field maintenance services. Deep-tine aeration removes deep cores from the soil to improve drainage and reduce compaction on heavily used natural turf athletic fields.
