What is lawn fertilization in Mckinney, TX?
We are the leaders in lawn fertilization in Mckinney, TX. As you know, fertilizer provides essential nutrients to your lawn that promote growth, durability and vitality. If you do not understand how fertilizer works, we will educate you. In addition, our fully trained staff of applicators will constantly assess the needs of your lawn. Furthermore, we will amend your treatment program if problems arise. We use slow release fertilizer that delivers all three essential nutrients. Nitrogen will produce a lush, green top growth. Phosphorous will stimulate root growth resulting in great durability. Potassium will boost the turf’s immunity and protect it from disease.
When is it time to fertilize the lawn?
Lawn fertilization in Mckinney, TX begins when the grass is actively growing. In North Texas, we fertilize lawns during the months of April through September. Homeowners are tempted to fertilize their lawns too early when home improvement stores begin selling fertilizer products. As a result, many homeowners apply fertilizer too soon. This leads to chemical waste and poor results. Wait until the outside temperature is well into the 80’s before fertilizing your lawn.
Lawn fertilization in Mckinney, TX is our specialty. Our 8 round annual lawn treatment program includes 4 slow release fertilizer applications during the spring, summer and early fall.
Is fertilizer all the lawn needs?
Very simply, no. There are several other cultural practices that go hand in hand with lawn care. First, all fertilizer must be watered in with a sufficient amount of rainfall or irrigation. We recommend following all fertilizer applications with at least .5 inch of rainfall or irrigation. As a result, the fertilizer is moved into the soil where it becomes activated. We will provide proper watering techniques and recommendations for the best results year round. Second, mowing the lawn at the proper height helps promote a healthy lawn. During the spring and fall, lawns respond favorably when cut at a shorter length due to lower temperatures. However, during the heat of summer, we instruct our customers to raise the mower decks to allow for a longer cut. The longer grass protects the top soil from the direct sunlight and minimizes the effects of drought conditions.

Does fertilizer fix all lawn problems?
Although proper fertilization is important, it does not always solve all lawn problems. We only recommend lawn fertilization in Mckinney, TX during the active growing season when the lawn is healthy and free of pest and disease. The active growing season includes the months of April, May, June, July, August and September. If the lawn shows signs of stress from pest or disease, fertilization should be postponed until the pest or disease has been identified and eradicated. We provide preventative and curative common lawn pest treatments, such as grubs, chinch bugs and mites. We also help identify common lawn diseases, such as brown patch and other fungus based diseases.
