The Best Lawn In Your Neighborhood!
There are many factors that contribute to a flourishing lawn including your approach to lawn fertilization. At Highlands Landscape Construction & Tree we offer our clients a variety of lawn fertilizer programs, as well as lawn pesticide programs administered by our fully licensed team member, all customized to the actual needs of your lawn.
Our goal when it comes to providing our clients with a lawn fertilization program is simple – we want you to have the best lawn in your neighborhood!
Our Process and Your Goals
We have a very straight forward approach to lawn fertilization that starts with what we call the “Lawn Interview.” The Lawn Interview is broken into two distinct parts:
- We inspect your lawn. We’ll review the current state of your grass. Your soil composition and other factors such as access to irrigation.
- We talk with you. We discuss goals for your lawn and we walk you through exactly how we see a lawn fertilization program working for your yard. We also talk about the history of your lawn to get a sense from you with regard to the yard’s overall health.
Based on the Lawn Interview we then put together a lawn fertilization program. This plan provides a good idea of how to best enhance the beauty of your lawn, and often times this plan with provide you with a great idea of what to expect in subsequent years as we begin to see great results.
Lawn Fertilization Program
Typically our full season program includes a mix of the following elements:
- Targeted Weed Control
- Grub Prevention and Control
The Lawn Fertilization Program will also provide you with a breakdown on pricing. We get it – nobody likes surprises. We also understand that nobody likes to be pressure sold and while we will make what we believe to be the best recommendations our team will never pressure you and we will not obligate you to a long term commitment if that is not what you want.
We also provide lawn pesticide treatments for our clients that can help combat grubs, and also spray for ticks and mosquitoes. In addition, depending on the specifics of your lawn we might also spray for other invasive insect such as Japanese Beatles.
All our lawn pesticide treatments are delivered with a focus on the safety and are administered by one of our team members that is fully licensed and certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. (License Number 40990).
A Holistic View on Lawn Fertilization and Beyond
There are many factors that contribute to the overall health and well-being of a lawn. With our over 10 years of experience servicing homes and business in the MetroWest area we have considerable experience in managing and nurturing lawns in our area. Our firm has developed a very holistic view to lawn and yard care that is very able to accommodate a variety of factors.
Issues such as watering schedule, mowing frequency, and even grass length all play a role in the health of your lawn. Other factors are very specific to our region including both weather and pest related issues.
Another big area we recognize is the overall use of your lawn. Some lawns are used more than others.
Tree cover is another big item. As is tree composition (for example pines create a very acidic environment.)
None of these items live alone. They are all inter-connected. And they all have an impact on how your lawn behaves and on how we will approach your fertilization program.
Do I Have to Hire Highlands to Mow My Lawn?
If you are interested in pursuing a lawn fertilization program with Highlands Landscape Construction & Tree than the short answer is yes. We’ve found that while there are many great companies that offer lawn fertilization as a stand-alone offering, we have seen that our best lawn fertilization outcomes are for full service clients of ours as we are best able to schedule our fertilization services to ensure the greatest impact.
That said, if you’d like to engage a different firm for lawn fertilization, or perhaps even to fertilize your property yourself, our landscaping division would be happy to service you and we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate third party schedules.
