Hillside’s premium lawn care service will keep your lawn thick, green, and weed free.

Spring Lawn Application #1

Pre-emergent crabgrass control stops crabgrass before it emerges and becomes invasive in the turf.

Spring Lawn Application #2

Fertilizer, post-emergent broadleaf weed control and crabgrass control stops broadleaf and grassy weeds, allowing the turf to excel going into the summer. Weeds such as dandelions, clover, and crabgrass are eliminated.

Grub Control Application

Insect control for sub-surface insects stops a large percentage of Japanese, June and Asiatic beetle larvae before they can feed on the root system of the lawn.

Summer Lawn Application #1

Surface-feeding insect control, spot treatment of grassy and broadleaf weeds keeps insects such as sod webworms, chinch bugs, and billbug grubs from feeding on the foliage in the lawn. Lawns are inspected and treated for stubborn weeds throughout.

Summer Lawn Application #2

Specialty herbicide for grassy and broadleaf weeds is applied to control all weeds that have germinated late or have evaded the spring application.

Fall Polyon Application

Polyon fertilizer application with weed control. This product releases nutrients to your lawn over the course of months instead of weeks. It is controlled by time & temperature and less effected by moisture like so many other fertilizers available in the industry. This “spoon feeding” approach thickens turf, reduces disease and ultimately helps control annual weed populations. However, the most important benefit is consistent green turf color and greatly reduced runoff potential due to excessive rainfall!

Pelletized Lime Application

Limestone or Sulfur is applied to improve pH rating of the soil allowing the soil to pass nutrients to the grass more efficiently.

Fall Aeration and Over Seeding

Mechanical aeration with Turf-Type Tall Fescue seed. Aeration relieves soil compaction and allows for more oxygen, water and nutrients to penetrate into the root zone and develop healthier and deeper root growth. Seeding afterwards fills in the lawn, bringing back a thick, green and healthy turf.

*All applications are susceptible to change and adjustments based on recent environmental factors such as temperatures, rainfall, and insect activity.

**Fertilizer program is in compliance with MD nutrient management Save the Bay laws.
