Step One: Early Spring
When mid-March and April come around, your turf will be applied with a slow-release fertilizer and pre-emergent. At this point, if there are insects on your lawn we’ll let you know if they need to be treated and take care of them!
Step Two: Late Spring
Between May and June, lawns usually need another boost. Sunset Lawns will come in with another application of slow-release fertilizer and pre-emergent. We add insecticide if needed.
Step Three: Mid-Summer
Our third treatment will include slow-release fertilizer and insecticide for grub control. This will boost the health of your lawn during the warm season and ensure that the progress won’t be stopped by grubs or other insects.
Step Four: Late Summer
When late July and August make an appearance, slow-release fertilizer and potash will be applied to help with drought stress and disease repair.
Step Five: Early Fall
Our fifth application occurs between September through mid-October with a heavier fast-acting late summer fertilizer that helps repair damage from the past year. We also apply insecticides if grubs or other insects are active.
Step Six: Late Fall/Pre-Winter
In late October, lasting through November, we will apply a winterizing fertilizer to protect your turf from the harsh weather in the winter months and promote beautiful green color in the spring.
In addition to our fertilizer program, Sunset Lawns offers a fungicide program to prevent and treat fungal lawn diseases. Fungicides will stop a developing fungal infection in its tracks before it spreads and affects the rest of your turf. This is a great option to supplement our fertilization program so that your turf can be full of nutrients, pest-free, and safe from fungal infections.
This program is applied about four times a year through the growing season. This generally begins in the month of May and is applied every 28 to 30 days, depending on your lawn’s unique needs. Our biggest issues include Brown Patch and Dollar Spot.
