Feed Your Lawn With our 3-Step Program 

A cornerstone of our lawn care service in Towson is our customized three-step “weed and feed” program. This program provides any lawn with essential nourishment while discouraging weed growth. The three steps include: 

  • Applying POLYON fertilizer in early spring to slow-release nitrogen throughout the summer. An herbicide is included in the fertilizer to prevent the germination of harmful Crabgrass and Goosegrass. 
  • As broadleaf weed activity peaks in late spring, we return to your lawn to apply herbicide controls. We only treat where the weeds are active. 
  • Finally, near the end of summer, we survey your lawn to see what help it may need. We apply POLYON for the fall to give your yard a head start for the following spring. 

By using our 3-step program, you can look forward to a lush, green lawn throughout the year. 

The Unique Benefits of POLYON Fertilizer 

One of our strengths is finding the best products to incorporate into our lawn care programs. Our customers receive excellent results with POLYON fertilizer on their properties. 

We have chosen to use POLYON because it enables us to eliminate potential nutrient runoff while only requiring the application of 30 to 50% fewer nutrients. This means we can provide high-quality lawn care without applying excess fertilizer to your lawn. Additionally, your lawn only needs two granular treatments each year to receive the necessary nutrition it needs to thrive.
