Scheduling Throughout the Year of Our Fertilization Treatments & the Process Involved

Most cool-season lawns can benefit from approximately 4-6 fertilizer treatments throughout the year. The frequency and balance of nutrients in your existing soil will help determine the best route for your property. Our 6 step lawn treatment schedule for cool season lawns includes early spring, late spring, early summer, late summer, early fall, and late fall for a total of six applications.

We use only the highest quality granular fertilizer available on the market. This helps us achieve our goal, making sure your lawn is lush, healthy, green, and weed free.

Our professionals will test your soil and determine the best course of action going forward that will yield the best results for your property. Ongoing treatments are needed to reap the benefits. Fertilizing your lawn just once will not be enough to keep a continuous cycle of vital nutrients in your soil. Over time, your lawn uses these nutrients and new treatments are needed to keep up the health and resistance of your lawn.


Fertilization Applications for New Lawns vs. Established Lawns

Newly planted lawns need the same nutrients (nitrogen and potassium) that your established lawn does. However, they need them in very different quantities. An established lawn benefits from a nitrogen-heavy fertilizer and is usually applied in a slow-release formula.

Conversely, if you have a newly established lawn, you need to approach your first treatment differently. We wait approximately 4-8 weeks after germination and use a starter formula that helps nourish new seedlings. The starter formula should only be used on the first application and standard fertilizer blends should be used going forward.


Chemical Treatments & Organic Fertilizer Options

At Sunnydale Lawn Care, we offer customers the option of using either chemical or organic fertilizer applications. Our standard treatments are always chemical, but we do offer organic by request only. Applications are spread out on your commercial or residential lawn using a walk behind applicator. We evenly disperse the fertilizer to ensure your entire lawn is fed.

Troy and the surrounding Michigan areas typically have Kentucky Bluegrass lawns, which tend to be overwatered by the property owner. Watering too much can adversely affect how the fertilizer works, and leave your lawn susceptible to disease and insect infestation.

Weed Control with Pre-Emergent & Post-Emergent Applications

We offer weed control as part of our fertilization applications. Our weed control program is strictly for your lawn, but you can contact us at (248) 376-8991 for a quote on additional weed control services for your landscaping beds.

We use a liquid weed control that is applied using a spray method. Both pre-emergent and post-emergent applications are done throughout the year to cover both grassy and broadleaf weeds.

For cool season lawns, pre-emergent is best sprayed during early spring and if needed a second treatment in late spring. Post-emergent applications are used typically during the summer months.


Weeds That Are Most Likely to Overrun Your Property

One of the most common weeds that is dealt with within the Troy region is dandelions.

In our local areas of Troy, Rochester, and Bloomfield, MI your property is most likely to be overrun by the following weeds:

  • Crabgrass- Telltale signs of crabgrass include pointy wide leaves that are from a single common stem, and it feels coarse to touch.
  • Dandelions- These weeds are very easily identified by their yellow flower that transforms into puffy seeds.
  • Clover or other broadleaf types - Clover is easily recognizable by its 3-part leaves that can overtake your lawn.
  • Violets - This can be a difficult weed to control, they are identified by their pretty purple flower but in reality, it is a very aggressive weed that can choke out your lawn.
  • Thistle- This weed is identified by sharp prickles on their leaves, stems and any flat parts of the leaves.
  • Chickweed- Is a common weed that is identified by a white, star-shaped flower, pairs of green leaves, and straggly looking stems that grows closely to the ground.
