Lawn Care & Fertilization in Bergen County
Keeping your lawn lush and green year-round requires proper care and maintenance. Making sure your lawn gets the right nutrients is essential for healthy grass growth, strong root systems and weed control. At Borst Landscape & Design, we provide two types of important fertilization programs for Northern NJ homeowners.
The Basic Turf Program
Our Basic Turf Program provides the minimal amount of fertilizers needed to create a green, healthy lawn year-round. It includes lawn fertilization five times a year to keep your lawn looking its best. The basic turf fertilization schedule includes applications in mid spring, late spring, summer, early fall and late fall.
The Basic Turf Program also includes important weed and insect control that’s essential for a healthy lawn. Even with a beautiful, well-maintained lawn, weeds and insects can quickly destroy your grass and turn your lawn into a neighborhood eyesore.
There are many types of weeds, but crabgrass and varieties of broadleaf and creeping weeds are abundant in Bergen County, NJ landscapes. The Basic Turf Program provides weed and insect control for all of these lawn problems.
- Pre-Emergent Crabgrass Control: Applied in early or mid spring, it prevents the spread of crabgrass, a stubborn weed that spreads rapidly across the lawn during the summer. Although it usually dies back in the fall, a single weed can distribute thousands of seeds ready to germinate the following spring.
- Broadleaf and Creeping Weed Control: Applied as needed in spring and fall, it will protect your lawn against aggressive broadleaf weeds like dandelions, chickweed and plantain, and creeping weeds like creeping charlie and dollarweed, perennial creepers that rob your grass and soil of moisture.
