Scientific Plant Service has provided excellent services to our Maryland community since 1957. Our company was founded by Frank J. Burke, with a focus on the care of shade trees and ornamental shrubs. Over the years, we have found ways to evolve with our industry, incorporating plant health care, snow removal services, aquatics, athletic field maintenance, pesticide and fertilizer applications, and lawn care. We maintain memberships in several lawn care associations and hold licenses and certifications throughout our service areas in Maryland and Virginia. If you are looking for exemplary lawn care service in Maryland, Scientific Plant Service team members can help.
Our Basic 1-2-3 Weed and Feed Program
An essential part of our lawn care service in Maryland is our “weed and feed program.” This three-step system feeds your lawn the nutrients it needs while preventing pesky weed growth. The three steps include:
- An early spring POLYON fertilizer application slowly releases nitrogen through late summer. An herbicide is incorporated into the fertilizer to prevent the germination of Crabgrass and Goosegrass.
- When broadleaf weed activity is peaking in late spring, we return to apply herbicide controls, only treating where weeds are active.
- Near the end of summer, we scout your lawn for weeds and apply POLYON to feed your lawn in the fall. This fertilizer application will also give your yard a jump start next spring.
After the application of our Weed and Feed Program, you can look forward to growing the greenest lawn on the block!
The Benefits of POLYON Fertilizer Treatments
As new and better products become available, we integrate them into our standard programs to provide our customers with the best service possible. One of the most significant improvements we have made is making POLYON the basis of our fertilization programs.
POLYON technology helps eliminate the possibility of nutrient runoff and makes it possible for us to apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients while still providing a high-quality lawn care program. This fertilizer’s unique features make it possible to supply your lawn with sufficient nutrition for the entire year with just two granular treatments.
