Nourish Your Lawn with Our 3-Step Nutrient Program

A crucial part of our lawn care service in Bel Air is our customized three-step “weed and feed” program. This nutrient program provides any lawn with the nourishment it needs while discouraging weed growth. The three steps include: 

  • First, we apply POLYON fertilizer at the onset of spring to slow-release nitrogen throughout the summer. An herbicide is included in the fertilizer to prevent Crabgrass and Goosegrass from germinating. 
  • As broadleaf weed activity peaks in late spring, we return to your property to apply herbicide controls. We only treat in the spots where weeds are active. 
  • Near the end of summer, we survey your lawn to see what help may be needed. We apply POLYON for the fall to give your lawn a head start for the following spring. 

When you use our 3-step program, you can look forward to a healthy green lawn throughout the year. 

The Custom Benefits of POLYON Fertilizer 

Over the years at Scientific Plant Service, we have found many ways to incorporate the best products into our lawn care services. One of the best products we have introduced to our clients is POLYON fertilizer. 

We use POLYON fertilizer because it allows us to apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients to your lawn with the same results as other fertilizers. This also means that we eliminate the possibility of heavy nutrient runoff into your local environment. 

Additionally, your lawn only needs to receive two granular treatments each year to receive the necessary nutrition to maintain its health.
