Weed Control + Fertilization

All lawns need nutrients to survive and thrive. In order to allow your lawn to grow to its fullest potential, it is important to both eliminate those pesky weeds and to supplement vital nutrients. We have a range of traditional and organic fertilizers to choose from to meet your lawn’s needs. 

We understand the potential negative impact that improper application practices can have on our area lakes and greater environment. To ensure we are not contributing to these issues, we utilize Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies.  Licensed through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, our team is trained to property identify lawn pests and create a treatment plan based on client preferences, best practices, and environmental considerations.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR WEED CONTROL? 

Once weeds are established in a lawn, there is no miracle product available that will wipe them out in one fell swoop. Rather, to properly control for weeds that are commonly found in lawns around Minneapolis and surrounding areas, we offer comprehensive seasonal programs that work to address your lawns specific needs.

Using integrated pest management practices, our lawn care experts work to properly identify weeds in order to create a personalized treatment plan. Our most common seasonal weed control and fertilization package includes the following applications over the course of the lawn season (please note that timing is subject to change depending on weather):

  • April/May: spring fertilizer and broadleaf/crabgrass pre-emergent weed control application

  • June/July: summer broadleaf/crabgrass post-emergent weed control application 

  • July/August: summer fertilizer application

  • August/September: fall broadleaf/crabgrass post-emergent weed control application  

  • September/October: fall fertilizer application

Several cultural practices can also help keep weeds under control by maintaining a strong, healthy turf. These include:
