Fertilizing and Lawn Spraying
Chemical applications to your Lawn and Plants
Taking care of your lawn and plants doesn’t stop with just mowing your lawn. There are four main services you can have done to your lawn and three to your plants. Your lawn at some time or another during the course of the year will need Fertilizer, Insecticides, Herbicides, and Fungicides to be healthy, and we provide these services in one form or another. Plant service however is usually limited to Fertilizing, Insecticide, and Fungicide treatments, because the mowers will usually take care of the weeds in the beds since they service weekly. We do offer a pre emergent treatment to prevent weeds from germinating but it is still the responsibility of the mowing service to keep weeds under control.
Types of Lawn fertilizing services
Every company out there claims to be the best and has a better program or philosophy than the others. Truth is every company has access to the same products, where the difference becomes clear is how they apply it, and how they react when there is a problem.
Blue Frog Lawn Services uses more expensive chemicals and more of them, we are proactive instead of reactive to problems. We do it right the first time.
Fertilizing should be done specifically for the type of grass you have and its specific requirements. Where St Augustine needs 4-6 pounds of Nitrogen per year, Bahia can get away with 2-4. Any application of fertilizer should be done with a balanced fertilizer. Blue Frog uses only quality fertilizers containing N-P-K unless restricted by county rules.
Blue Frog will blanket your entire yard with insecticides if needed, and/or will spot treat if the situation calls for it. We use insecticides with both residuals and contact. We are as environmentally friendly as we can be and still provide the best service.
Weed control application have become increasingly difficult as more rules and regulation come up. Most companies are experimenting with new ways of controlling weeds in a lawn, some are working others are not. Some of the companies are experimenting with pre emergent weed control but it is still not an exact application. different lawns call for different applications, ask what the best policy is on weed control for your type of lawn, and we will be happy to explain.
There is no reason to do a preventative fungicide to an entire lawn unless it has a history of fungus problems. Spot treatment as a reactive service is fine in this case, unless you are dealing with Bermuda grass.
