Fertilizing & Pest Control Services

Our company is licensed and certified to apply fertilizer, pesticide, and have the knowledge to assist you to make the right decision for a green and healthy lawn.   At each visit we monitor for insects and diseases problems and treat for weeds upon appearance.  We use slow release fertilizers which gives the lawn fertilizer in small increments.  This is a better approach to reduce the risk of nitrogen burns and leaching.

Lime application
Connecticut soil tends to have a low pH level.  Limestone will help correct acidy soils and raise soil pH for plants to utilize soil nutrients. 

Disease treatments
Diseases can occur do to many environmental factors.  Some can be controlled by thatch and water management or adjusting the nitrogen level.  A preventive fungicide can be applied before diseases occur.  If diseases get out of hand and no cultural methods can be done, then a curative fungicide can be applied. 

Shrub bed weed control
Pre-emergent weed control should be applied in ornamental beds at least two times a year to prevent weeds.
