  • Turf reduces environmental heat and provides a cooling effect.
  • Green spaces improve wellness and reduce stress.

Fertilizing Your Lawn

Fertilization is an essential part of turf care. Most soils lack the nutrients necessary for a lawn to thrive. A well fertilized lawn is healthier and greener, and it’s also better at preventing weed infestation.  Disruptions such as drought and disease take their toll, and a healthy turf is better able to withstand these attacks.

Fertilizer is made up of three major ingredients:

  1. Nitrogen- makes grass grow and makes grass greener
  2. Phosphorus- stimulates root growth and seedling development
  3. Potassium- increases disease and drought tolerance

These three components are listed in the form of Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium in numerical correlation by the amount of each. For example 10-10-10 would be a balanced food with equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Fertilizer must be applied at the proper time and at the proper rates.  Dream Greener’s licensed and experienced turf professionals are here to help you.

Weed Control

Weeds are an unsightly detraction from the beautiful landscape you desire.  Our liquid weed control program will help eliminate unsightly aggressive weeds.

Dream Greener uses both pre-emergent and post-emergent applications to control crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds. We will apply liquid weed control at the appropriate times to address unsightly weeds.

The Use of Liquid Weed Control

Hand pulling weeds in turf could take days, and some weeds cannot be controlled by hand pulling because of the underground structures left behind.  Our liquid weed controls are pre-emergent, which prevents the germination of weeds and post-emergent which target growing weeds. We also carry products to address hard to control weeds such as Nutsedge, Wild Violet and Ground Ivy.

Your turf will improve from Dream Greener’s tailored care and treatment plan. Ask your Dream Greener licensed service specialist to help you determine the appropriate mowing and watering program to ensure optimum results from your treatment program.
