Lawn Care Package Options

GreenLawn by Design’s 6-Step Lawn Care Program is designed specifically for the Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville, Zionsville and surrounding areas to control weeds and give your lawn a beautiful appearance. Getting the proper nutrients in your lawn is key, but equally important are keeping out the pests like invasive weeds and turf-feeding insects.

Weeds can grow faster than grass and consume the same Nitrogen that we apply to your lawn. Because weeds are routinely germinating and spreading their seed by wind, birds, etc., your weed-control should be just as routine as your fertilizer. Lawns with fewer applications will inherently have more weeds than lawns that get more applications that’s why we include weed control in every application.

To help you understand why we recommend 6 applications, some technical understanding is essential. Cool-season turf grasses such as those found in Indiana need between 5-7 pounds of total Nitrogen (per 1,000 sq ft) each season to perform at their best. Since the maximum application rate is 1 pound per application, that equates to 5-7 applications per season. Any less than 3 pounds of nitrogen per season, and our cool-season turf grasses will show color inconsistency and decline in density, allowing weeds to pop-up more readily. 

We adjust our fertilization rates based upon your specific lawn. Lawns that have built-in sprinklers and are watered regularly will grow faster and require more nitrogen than a lawn that is not watered regularly. Knowing how you manage your lawn helps us in keeping it as beautiful as possible







Fertilizer Schedule:

This first visit will help wake up your lawn from the long winter. A careful evaluation of your lawn will reveal any prior season problems that may need to be addressed. We’ll also apply bio-nutrient products to promote early spring green-up, target weeds, and prevent crabgrass.

The second application will continue to target weeds and also promote a greener color and a stronger root system, all creating a thicker, healthier lawn that will naturally be able to defend itself against weeds and problem grasses. Our eco-friendly lawn care products provide beautiful results with fewer nitrates and pesticides than traditional lawn care companies.

Our third application will continue to strengthen your lawn while managing those persistent weeds. The bio-nutrient supplements will also help your lawn continue to thrive in the summer heat while improving the cell structure of the grass. We also recommend a grub preventative treatment during this visit to keep white grubs from potentially destroying your lawn. (available in our Premium and Supreme Lawn Care Packages.)

During this mid-year visit, we will evaluate your lawn to see how it has evolved since the spring and will tailor our application to address your lawn’s needs. Whether your lawn could use more fertilizer, targeted weed treatment, or additional post-emergent control to manage problem grasses, you can depend on GreenLawn by Design to give your lawn the care that it needs.

As we move into fall, our fifth application will help your lawn recover from the stress of summer and target any pesky weeds that may have popped up. We recommend core aeration during this visit to reduce soil compaction and introduce a variety of different and quality grasses to your lawn. (Available in our Premium and Supreme Lawn Care Packages.)

 The 6th application will focus on root development as the top-growth of your lawn is not growing as fast. However, the root system continues to grow. By providing a High Nitrogen fertilizer at this time, we keep the top-growth of your turf grass healthy and productive. We use a Slow-release fertilizer focused on root development and a blanket spray for broadleaf weeds.”

During this final visit and before your lawn goes into winter dormancy, we’ll apply a final fertilizer to feed the root system and help your lawn adequately withstand the long and potentially harsh winter. This application also promotes earlier green-up next spring.

GreenLawn by Design’s healthy and eco-friendly lawn care services will bring you a beautiful, green, healthy lawn with strong roots and thick turf using less fertilizer and pesticides.
