scientific plant service lawn care service in Baltimore

The best lawn care service in Baltimore can ensure healthy and thriving soil.

Since 1957, Scientific Plant Service has provided our Maryland community with excellent and professional lawn care services. Frank J. Burke founded our company decades ago with an original focus on shade trees and ornamental shrubs. Since the beginning, we have found ways to evolve with our industry by incorporating plant health care, snow removal services, athletic field maintenance, aquatics, and pesticide and fertilizer applications. We are members of several lawn care associations and hold licenses and certifications throughout Maryland and Virginia. If you are interested in a dedicated lawn care service in Baltimore, Scientific Plant Service can help. 

Our 1-2-3 Weed and Feed Program 

A crucial component of our lawn care service in Baltimore is our three-step “weed and feed” program. This system provides your lawn with the nourishment it needs while preventing new weed growth. The steps include: 

  • An application of POLYON fertilizer in early spring slowly releases nitrogen through the summer. We incorporate an herbicide into the fertilizer to prevent the germination of Goosegrass and Crabgrass. 
  • When broadleaf weed activity peaks in late spring, we return and apply herbicide controls, treating where weeds are active. 
  • Near the end of summer, we survey your lawn for weeds and apply POLYON for the fall. The fertilizer application gives your yard a head start for spring. 

You can look forward to growing a green, healthy lawn with the help of our proven weed and feed system. 

Why We Use POLYON Fertilizer

We incorporate the best products into our programs to ensure that our customers receive the best service possible. One of the most significant additions to our lawn care programs has been the use of POLYON fertilizer. 

POLYON technology helps eliminate potential nutrient runoff and allows us to apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients while providing high-quality lawn care services. This fertilizer’s unique features enable us to provide your lawn with the nutrition it needs for the year with just two granular treatments.
