Fertilization Weed Control Program
ProLawnCo has a complete fertilization and weed control program that, when coupled with proper watering and lawn maintenance, will provide you with a healthy lawn that is mostly weed-free and insect-free. You can also be assured that all of our technicians are licensed by the Texas Department of Agriculture. The Fertilization & Weed Control Program includes:
Identification of your lawn grasses, weeds, soil composition, etc.
Seasonal lawn fertilizer
Seasonal pre-emergent weed control
Post-emergent weed control
Turf insect and grub worm management control
ProLawnCo’s Fertilization Program has been developed in conjunction with recommendations of leading locally and nationally recognized horticulturists. ProLawnCo’s fertilization program will provide the nutrients that your lawn needs. We use only top quality, timed-released, high-nitrogen fertilizer. Each year, beginning in late March or early April and continuing thru September, it is recommended you fertilize your lawn every four to eight weeks. These applications are included in our Fertilization & Weed Control Program.
Pre-Emergent Weed Control
Fall through winter, we apply a pre-emergent weed control product to your lawn. These treatments are designed to prevent the majority of weeds for the remainder of the year. During the year, we will continue to address hard-to-kill weeds such as nutsedge or dallisgrass, which require specific post-emergent herbicides to be applied when present.
Post-Emergent Weed Control
As a part of your service, our licensed technician will evaluate your lawn for any weeds that emerge. Then, the licensed technician will determine the proper herbicide application program for the control and elimination of identified weed. Keep in mind that applying post-emergent herbicides will only eliminate existing weeds; it will not prevent weed seeds from germinating.
Post-emergent service is included, and only available to clients that enroll in the Fertilization & Weed Control program.
Insect and Grub Worm Control
The insect control included in this program the control of are designed to minimize the population of common lawn insects (not including fire ants). Among the most common is the grub worm. These insects are the larval stage of the May or June Beetles (June Bugs). In other words, the June Beetle (June Bug) is the adult of the grub worm. If left unchecked, grub worms will feed on grass roots until late May or early June, when they will take flight to mate. The mated female then returns to the soil to lays her eggs. Damaged areas within lawns lose vigor and turn brown. Severely damaged turf can be lifted by hand or rolled up from the ground like a carpet. Our program applies an insecticide that should kill grub worms eating on your grass’ root system.
