Promote Lawn Growth with the Weed and Feed System

Our three-step weed and feed system is a critical part of our lawn care service in Sykesville. Our treatment combines the nutrients of fertilizer with the necessary weed prevention for a healthy lawn. How does it work? 

  • Step One: We apply POLYON fertilizer in the spring to initiate the slow release of nitrogen throughout the summer. This treatment includes an herbicide that prevents Goosegrass and Crabgrass from germinating. 
  • Step Two: We come back in late spring to apply herbicides where necessary on your lawn. This visit occurs during the peak broadleaf weed season when your yard is most vulnerable. 
  • Step Three: We inspect your property again at the end of summer to determine if additional treatment is needed. Our team then applies POLYON in the fall to help your property stay healthy during the winter and into next spring. 

Why Do We Choose POLYON Fertilizer? 

Scientific Plant Service provides our clients with the best lawn care treatments available. We always look for the best products and methods to use so our clients consistently receive excellent results. One of the best products we use is POLYON fertilizer. But why is this our fertilizer of choice? 

  • When using POLYON, we can apply 30 to 50% fewer nutrients than traditional fertilizers while producing the same excellent results. 
  • This means your landscape receives the nutrients it requires without contributing to excess nutrient runoff. 
  • Our team only applies two granular treatments each year to produce the desired long-term results

POLYON allows us to produce these consistently excellent results for your landscape.

Prevent Damage From Turf Diseases and Lawn Grubs

Beyond providing your lawn with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy, you must also take care to prevent the arrival of turf diseases and harmful lawn grubs. Pests and diseases can cause long-lasting damage to roots and seriously impact the appearance of your lawn. 

The diagnosticians of Scientific Plant Service are trained to spot early signs of disease and pests. We can then determine the most effective treatment for your property and apply them where needed. Our grub control has a season-long guarantee, so you’re covered even if these pests return. 

Apply the Best Cultural Practices to Maintain Your Landscape

Keeping up with the best cultural practices for your property is essential for keeping your beautiful landscape looking great. These practices keep your lawn healthy and prevent reliance on expensive treatments and pesticides. Standard cultural practices include aeration, seeding, mowing, and watering. When your grass is healthy, it will be more resistant to invasive pests and diseases. 

Our experienced team at Scientific Plant Service will help you find the best watering and mowing plans for your property and advise on whether aeration is needed.
