Metro West uses an integrated pest management program. In established lawns, weed control will be maintained with selective spraying to reduce turf stress. Granular fertilizers feed your turf slowly, maintaining a beautiful green color. Approximate schedule:

Gold Level Program

  • 1: Early Spring: Slow release fertilizer with crabgrass and broadleaf weed preventer providing energy and nutrients to the lawn and pre-emergent herbicide to prevent summer weeds.
  • 2: Late Spring: Second application of slow release fertilizer with crabgrass and broadleaf weed preventer providing nutrition and crabgrass control throughout the season. Dandelion/Clover kill as needed.
  • 3: Mid Summer: Slow release fertilizer providing energy to the lawn and prepares for tough summer stresses. Dandelion/Clover kill as needed.
  • 4: Mid Summer: Insecticide application to prevent grub worms from feeding on plant roots causing turf to brown out in mid to late summer (this application is done at the same time as round 3)
  • 5: Late Summer: Organic nutrition to help turf get through tough summer stress and build soil for long term plant health; Dandelion/Clover kill as needed.
  • 6: Late Summer: Highly available lime material is applied both for plant nutrition and to condition soil for long term plant health. (this application is applied at the same time as round 5)
  • 7: Mid to Late Fall: Winterization fertilizer to provide lawn nutrition throughout the winter and provide optimum root growth. Dandelion/Clover kill as needed.
  • Nutsedge Application: A herbicide can be applied to control Nutsedge on an as needed basis for an additional charge
