Lawn Maintenance Schedule
Landscape & Garden Maintenance Schedule
We use many different chemicals to control weeds depending on the weeds to be controlled and temperature. Weed control can be applied as a blanket or spot treatment, and is used throughout the season as needed.
These schedules are basic guidelines we follow. Actual work will be done based on current conditions and Rutgers Cooperative Extension guidelines. Additional applications may be made without notice if conditions warrant. Such as if a pest or disease outbreak occurs, to keep turf and landscape actively growing or for color.
Lawn applications; Week of April 16th; We will be applying our first round of fertilizer and Dimension crab grass preventative. Where needed we will spray weeds with Speedzone.
Landscape applications; We will be spraying Dormant oil, fertilizing with 3-4 month slow release Osmocote, doing deep root injections and applying Treflan weed preventative.
Where needed we will be spraying weeds with Round up herbicide.
