When you take the time to select and plant your trees and shrubs, you probably envision them thriving for years on your property. But regular turf maintenance and tree care is essential for the health and longevity of your plantings — and sometimes, busy homeowners are unable to keep up with the turf and tree care regimen required in their landscaping.
At Rosehill Gardens, we offer turf, shrub and tree care services to help preserve the health and beauty of your plants.
Turf Chemical Program
Application #1-Early Spring: Fertilizer at this time is crucial for an early spring green up. We apply a balanced rate of nitrogen (a key element in chlorophyll, which gives your lawn its dark green color, and Phosphate (an essential nutrient for root development and the plant’s energy system). Included in this application is an important pre-emergent to help control grassy weeds like crabgrass and foxtail.
Application # 2 -Spring: This application helps continue control of grassy weeds like crabgrass and foxtail along with control for many kinds of broadleaf weeds including dandelions and clover. We also apply a balanced rate of fertilizer to keep your lawn healthy and green.
Application #3 – Early Summer: Nutrient rich fertilizer will help maintain your turf’s vigor through the hot summer months along spot treatments for all types of weeds. Early summer is active season for insects of all kinds, including turf damaging grubs. We offer a grub/insect control treatment that can be applied alongside this application.
Application #4 – Summer: A slow release – iron rich fertilizer will maintain color and health the summer months along with control of all weeds. Don’t forget to water your lawn early in the day – about 1″ per week.
Application #5- Early Fall: A balanced rate of fertilizer to help reestablish lawns after the long summer stress and encourage root development for newly seeded lawns with spot treatment for all weeds.
Application #6- Winter: The last application of the year helps build a nutrient rich food store for the soil to use in early spring. This helps your lawn green up earlier, have better coloring/rooting and be heartier overall.
All broadleaf control plus crabgrass and nutgass control are offered for free throughout the year if all 6 applications are purchased.
We also offer fungicide control available anytime it’s needed – we treat by using a preventative application, and also have a curative treatment after it has developed. Brown rings and dead spots can be the result of fungus which is caused many ways. The best thing to do is apply a preventative application before it appears!
A Grub Treatment is also offered when needed in June or July.
