The Lawnwise Program: A series of highly effective, tactical steps throughout the seasons

SOIL TESTING: The only way to select appropriate fertilizers and soil amendments is to test your soil, so during the first 3 years we conduct tests and continue to test every other year thereafter.

VISIT 1 - EARLY TO MID SPRING: Our proprietary balanced compost tea is applied with additional fungal and/or bacterial foods depending on soil test results. An additional organic nitrogen source will typically be added during a cold spring and on the first year of this program, while the populations of beneficial microbes are building.

VISIT 2 - LATE SPRING: A fungal compost tea application is made with granular humic acid. This application helps to slow the normally accelerated spring growth rate by tying up some nutrients so they can be cycled back to the plants later in the season.

VISIT 3 - EARLY SUMMER: A granular application of a long-term organic fertilizer is made. Compost tea is applied to maintain the needed levels of beneficial microbes to keep up nutrient cycling and mineralization to maintain growth and color during a period of time where the grass is normally going dormant.

MIDSUMMER GREEN-UP: A simple organic nitrogen source is applied to provide a boost for turf to help keep lush growth in the stress of the hot summer.
