The 7-Step Lawn Care Program

In New England, our lawns face many challenges:

  • Intense heat of the summer sun
  • Winter wind chill on bare lawns
  • Alternating droughts and floods (and mud season!)
  • And the fact that, as the old saying goes, “if you don’t like the weather, wait an hour!”

To keep your lawn healthy, you need to pay close attention to it, and stay ahead of weeds and insects!

Our lawn care program combines specific fertilization and preventative lawn care treatments. Our slow-release fertilizers provide essential growth-promoting nutrients, allowing your lawn to out-compete weeds.

Our 7-Step Lawn Care Program below includes the following seasonal applications which, when complemented by our best practices, will yield the perfect lawn.
