Applying Fertilizer throughout the year is a vital step to maintaining a thick lush lawn. Fertilizer has three main components: The first number (nitrogen) promotes dark green color and growth. The second number (phosphate) aids in seed development, while the third number (potash) helps with root development.
Starter fertilizer always needs to be applied at the time of new grass seeding. These products help the seedlings roots develop by providing them with much needed nutrients. All of our starter fertilizers are specially blended by our staff allowing for low cost, competitive pricing. Let us help you with your next seed and fertilizer project.

Existing lawns mainly need nitrogen to continue to produce healthy plant development and growth. Failure to maintain proper nutrients in the soil may cause lawn to appear yellow, slow growing, and allow weeds to invade what once was a thick, beautiful lawn.
Summer is a tough time for lawns due to the high temperatures and low precipitation. A lot of lawns will turn brown and go into a semi dormant stage. We offer both 50% & 100% stabilized release granular fertilizer.
Applying pelletized Lime is an important application that helps neutralize your soil acidity. If you have a dog leaving yellow spots in the yard it is best to apply pelletized lime.
Gypsum is a 100% organic product that conditions the soil allowing nutrients to get to the roots. It also can reduce the risk of disease by neutralizing the magnesium in the soil.
Crabgrass is an annual bunch grass that can overtake a yard if not properly controlled. Applying a crabgrass preemergent fertilizer will prohibit most seed from germinating. Timing is everything when applying a crabgrass preemergent fertilizer and as a member of the Green Envy Lawn Care Program you no longer need to worry about missing the prime application window.
**Do not apply preemergent if planning to overseed***
Granular Weed & Feed is an available product to help conquer broadleafs. The best time to apply this product is early morning when there is dew on the grass allowing the product to stick to the plant.
**Liquid Herbicides are more effective**
During the summer months it is important to mow no shorter than 3 inches.
