Early and Late Fertilizing and Lime Applications

ProLawn Advantage team has been developing the best organic based lawn fertilizing and lime programs for the market since 1981. We have selected the best applications and sequences of treatment for both Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland and Eastern West Virginia.

Your Personal Lawn Program

In the Northern Virginia area no two lawns are alike. Where you live, whether you have sun or shade, and many other factors make a big difference in what your lawn needs. ProLawn can help you build a successful program specifically for your lawn and surrounding environment.

Early Spring (February – April)

In our area most types of grass wake up hungry by the first week of March. This is when you have to feed your lawn to strengthen roots and prepare your grass for a good start before the heavy growing season. If you had crabgrass, dandelions, clover, daisy weed, broadleaf weeds, buttercup, ragwort and many more last year, ProLawn will apply a combination product that contains a pre-emergent to control these types of weeds.

Summer (June – August)

The hot Virginia summer is very tough on grass, especially if your lawn does not have a sprinkler system. Heat, drought, foot traffic, and insects stress it out. We have total control programs that includes Mosquito, Perimeter Pest and Termite that protects and strengthens it against these problems. Lawns in warm-season grass areas should be fed nutrients over the summer months as they grow steadily from spring to fall. If you see any type of insects in your grass please call us immediately for inspection.

Fall (September – November)

Northern Virginia is beautiful in fall but now come the leaves. Of course fall brings back ideal growing conditions for your lawn, cool nights, warm days, ample rainfall and morning dew are just about as good as it gets for grass. This is when your lawn is ready to grow again, and is looking for the nutrients it needs to recover from summer damage. ProLawn has the proper fertilizers to take your lawn right into the winter months. These nutrients will strengthen roots and increase nitrogen storage for an early spring green up and a healthier lawn next year. And remember to call us to remove your leaves, because leaves left on your grass will destroy the root system and cause fungus in the spring.

Fall Is The Best Time to Lime Your Lawn

ProLawn prefers to lime just before the first frost in Fall because the soil has all winter to absorb the lime. We make sure we don’t spread the lime on a dry, wilted lawn or a soggy, wet lawn. In the early Spring right after we aerate and over seed your lawn, we apply lime to the soil just before we plant.
