We also include weed control within our lawn fertilization program so we can provide you the best service for the best lawn.

What's Included

  • Liquid Aeration

    Our High quality fertilizers are sprayed via a solution that helps loosen the soil, allowing for a deeper nutritional intake and a more evenly distribution across your lawn.

  • Grub & Billbug Prevention

    Our Lawn fertilization and weed control services for the Salt Lake City area of Utah, prevent unwanted intruders in your lawn.

  • 7 Rounds of Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control Treatments

    To ensure your lawn is the healthiest it can be all year round, we will work with you to schedule 7 rounds of lawn fertilization and weed control treatments.


Fertilizer Types

Our lawn fertilization treatments aim to provide your soil with as many nutrients as possible. We analyze the needs of your garden and develop a plan that suits your needs.

Our treatments are applied throughout the year in a 6-step program. At each visit we  determine the best course of action based on the condition of your lawn and review our plan with you. The final treatment of the year will be the application of a hardy fertilizer  designed to prepare and maintain your lawn as best as possible through the winter months.

  • Liquid Fertilization

    We spray a liquid fertilizer to coat your lawn with the nutrients it needs. This type of fertilizer provides a more even distribution and can help maintain your lawn’s pH by ensuring nitrogen levels are correct.

  • Granular Fertilization

    This is a dry fertilizer that is spread over your lawn. Unlike the fast-acting liquid fertilizer, the granular option has is time released into your soil. This option is best for older grasses with deeper roots.


Salt Lake City Weed Control

Each visit in our Salt Lake City lawn fertilization process also includes a weed control treatment, as needed. Weeds look unsightly and rob your lawn of key nutrients your grass needs for healthy growth. Whether or not your lawn has any visible weeds or not, we apply the appropriate weed control treatment to ensure that your lawn never has to worry about being robbed of its nutrients.

To make sure you are always in the know, our specialists will discuss with you the possible types of weeds that may be present: 

  • Broadleaf weeds, such as clovers, dandelions, and thistles, are single-vein leaves accompanied by flowers. 
  • Grassy weeds are very common weeds in Salt Lake City, such as ryegrass and crabgrass, and often look very similar to regular turfgrass. 
    • These weeds grow taller and faster than turfgrass, so any isolated patch of tall grass can be an indicator of grassy weeds.

Types of Weed Control Services Offered

  • Pre-Emergent

    This is the best option for healthy looking gardens with no visible weeds. This solution will prevent weeds from spreading before they start. Early spring is always a good time to use this solution as your lawn and garden will be in bloom for the first time that season.

  • Post-Emergent

    Visible weeds that need to be removed before they can continue to grow are treated with this solution. The goal of this solution is to get rid of the weeds that are already present in your lawn.

  • Spot Treatment

    Our technicians will review each specific area of your lawn that needs treatment, rather than treating the entire lawn. If we have previously applied weed killer and you notice the weeds coming back we will come out and spot treat your lawn.

Remember to Water your Lawn

Lawns need to be watered regularly in order for them to grow and thrive. Proper fertilization must go hand-in-hand with watering so that maximized growth can happen! Ask us how all of our services, including our Salt Lake City pest control services come together seamlessly to provide you the healthiest lawn on Utah’s south fringe–we’ll have your neighbors jealous before long!
