Nourish Your Lawn with the Weed and Feed System
Our three-step “weed and feed” treatment is a critical component of our lawn care service throughout Maryland. Our program is designed to provide your turf with the nutrition it needs while preventing and inhibiting weed growth.
- First, we apply POLYON fertilizer at the start of spring to initiate the slow release of nitrogen in the summer. This fertilizer includes an herbicide that prevents the germination of common weeds Goosegrass and Crabgrass.
- At the peak of broadleaf weed growth in late spring, we come back to apply extra herbicide controls. We only treat the spots on your lawn where weeds are active so the rest of your yard doesn’t receive unneeded herbicides.
- Finally, we survey your lawn at the end of summer to determine if more help is needed. We apply POLYON once again to give your yard nutrients to survive the fall and winter.
When you use our weed and feed system, you can enjoy a beautiful, lush lawn throughout the year.
Why We Prefer POLYON Fertilizer
At Scientific Plant Service, we always look for the most effective products. One of our favorites is POLYON fertilizer.
Why do we prefer POLYON? This fertilizer allows us to apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients to your lawn while attaining the same great results as other fertilizers. This means that we can reduce the chance of heavy nutrient runoff from your yard.
When we apply POLYON, we only need to administer two granular treatments each year to provide the necessary nutrition for your lawn.
