Fertilization & Weed Control In Franklinton, Bogalusa, & Washington Parish, LA
In Louisiana, correctly timed lawn fertilization and weed control treatments are vital to deliver the proper nutrients for healthy grass growth and keeping weeds away.
Fertilizing and weed control are extremely beneficial to your lawn, but are difficult to apply properly. Fertilizer can be easily over-applied or under-applied and create a devastating outcome for your turf. At Green Pastures Lawn Maintenance LLC, we know the types of grass and weeds commonly found in Franklinton, Bogalusa, and Washington Parish, which help us provide specific fertilization and weed control packages to enhance the growth and health of your grass.
Our professional fertilization services are specially formulated using a combination of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium that promotes moderate and steady grass growth. The benefit of a regimented fertilization program is that your lawn gets the exact nutrients it needs at the right time of the year for the grass to thrive all year long.
Slow-release and fast-release nitrogen fertilizers are highly recommended for our area and types of grass. We follow these fertilization schedules based on your specific grass type:
Nitrogen-based fertilizers should not be applied during October through February, however, lawns can be fertilized with a winterizer during late November or December with high potassium levels.
We can apply pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides that handle weed control in your lawn based on the time of the year. Additionally, we can help your property find relief from the common lawn disease that plagues many homes and businesses in the area, Brown Patch.
These herbicides are used before seeds have the opportunity to germinate, however, they do not control existing weeds. Pre-emergent herbicides are applied during the spring to Crabgrass and Goosegrass. During the fall, we use these herbicides to help prevent the growth of Bluegrass and Henbit.
Post-emergent herbicides can be applied with any other treatment throughout the year as long as temperatures are under 90°F. We control these broadleaf weeds with post-emergent herbicides:
There's a fungus that attacks lawns during warm, moist weather plagues Louisiana grass yearly. This fungus, known as Brown Patch, is most common in areas that retain moisture. Brown Patch appears as brown circular or discolored areas of the lawn. If left alone, Brown Patch can kill large areas of your lawn within a few short weeks.
Fungicides can prevent Brown Patch from forming in your lawn. One application typically last around 21 days and treatments can be added to your fertilization schedule separately.
Core aeration is not fertilizer or a herbicide, but a service that can dramatically improve these treatments. We aerate your lawn with a special tool that punches holes into the grass. For warm season grasses, early summer is the best time to perform aeration services. We advise aerating your lawn before the initial spring fertilizer treatments for a number of reasons:
