Promote Turf Growth with Our Weed and Feed System

Our three-step weed and feed treatment is critical to our lawn care service in Dorsey. This treatment combines the preventative benefits of a herbicide and the nutritional benefits of fertilizer. How does the treatment work? 

  • Step One: We apply POLYON fertilizer in spring to launch the slow release of nitrogen during the summer. Meanwhile, the herbicide prevents the germination of Crabgrass and Goosegrass. 
  • Step Two: We visit again near the end of spring to apply herbicides where necessary on your lawn. We visit during the peak broadleaf weed season when your yard is most vulnerable. 
  • Step Three: We examine your property at the end of summer to determine if more treatment is necessary. Our team later applies POLYON in the fall to give your lawn the nutrition it needs to last through winter into next spring. 

The Unique Benefits of POLYON Fertilizer

At Scientific Plant Service, we search for effective ways to provide our clients with the best lawn care treatments. One of the best tools at our disposal is POLYON fertilizer. But why do we prefer this fertilizer to more traditional options? 

  • When we use POLYON, we apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients than other fertilizers while still producing the same excellent results. 
  • This means that your landscape receives the required nutrients without producing nutrient runoff. 
  • Our team only needs to apply two yearly granular treatments to produce the best, long-term results

POLYON allows us to produce consistently excellent results for every landscape.
