  • The Premium fertilization program is designed specifically to strengthen the soils of South Florida and protect palm trees and ornamental plants from micro-nutritional deficiencies. Dry and liquid fertilizers are combined to protect the environment while feeding your lawn.

  • Lawn Destroying Pest control eliminates chinch bugs, sod webworms, grubs, aphids, and other insects that feed on your lawn, as well as insects that may bite humans or pets, such as fire ants, fleas, and ticks.
  • Weed control combines pre-emergent and post-emergent control of weeds. It prevents the over-watering or nutrient deficit that can cause weeds to proliferate.
  • Plants and ornamental shrubs, such as the exotic plants that thrive in the South Florida climate, attract specific types of insects that can damage or kill them. Regular fertilization and the right material applied directly to the roots help prevent these pests.
  • Palm trees in South Florida are affected by many diseases that are difficult to detect, so even seemingly healthy trees can be at risk. Applying the right nutrient supplement keeps them healthy and growing.

The science behind lawn care services in south florida

Every aspect of tending to a home’s lawn and landscaping in South Florida is more complicated than it may appear at first.

The answers to these and other questions about your landscaping and lawn care services in South Florida depend on a wide range of variables

Devising a lawn care regimen for your yard entails considerations that many South Florida homeowners are unaware of.

Seeding and Airation

Soil compacts over time, which prevents it from receiving the oxygen that plant roots need to thrive. Aeration removes small plugs of soil and places them on top of the lawn. This allows the soil to become oxygenated, and over time the holes are filled in. Seeding is the most effective after the soil has been aerated. It’s best to use a blend of turf and grasses to increase the lawn’s resistance to disease and drought.

Fertilizer

Most lawns need to be fertilized at least twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. The trick is in determining the correct type and amount of fertilizer to use, and where to apply it. Fertilizer types include slow-release, fast-release, weed and feed, organic material (manure, compost, etc.), and liquid fertilizers.

Lawn Pests

Some insects feed on grass blades (such as grasshoppers), while others burrow and gobble up the roots (such as gophers). Moles can devastate lawns by digging tunnels searching for their favorite foods—grubs, worms, beetles, and other insects. 

Disease and Fungus

Brown patch, dollar spot, fairy rings, and other common lawn diseases are caused by fungus, not lack of water or nutrients.

Seasonal Variation

When lawns start waking up in early spring, they’re hungry for nutrients and need fertilizer to strengthen their roots. By late spring and early summer, the lawn may need another dose of fertilizer along with some weed prevention. Summer’s high heat, drought, and peak insect activity stress the grass, so another application of fertilizer may be needed. Fall is a time of recovery for the grass and preparation for dormancy during the winter, but it’s also one of the most important times to fertilize.
