Lawn Care Program

VALLEY GREEN LAWN FERTILIZATION
A strong root system is the secret to maintaining a healthy lawn throughout the growing season. Promoting a healthy root system is best achieved with proper fertilization techniques which start with quality fertilizing products. Total Lawn & Landscape uses Valley Green Fertilizer that release nutrients slowly to keep your lawn healthy through the entire season.

 

Granular based fertilizers have several advantages over liquid based fertilizers. The first advantage is that they release nutrients slowly and evenly over time.  Liquid fertilizers are high in nitrogen and release nutrients quickly causing the lawn to use these nutrients all at once and leaving it with nothing until the next application. Valley Green’s granular fertilizers are developed to release nutrients evenly over time. The granules in the fertilizer have a coat which release nutrients as it dissolves slowly in the soil to continuously supply the roots with the necessary nutrients to stay strong and healthy.

 

Another advantage of Valley Green’s fertilizers is that they are safe for people and pets. Valley Green’s fertilizer consist of organic materials such as compost, blood meal, bone meal, seaweed extracts, and humic and amino acids as opposed to harsh chemicals found in liquid fertilizers. These organic materials help activate existing nutrients in the soil as well as retain moisture. The last major advantage of Valley Green’s fertilizers is that they have a faster drying time than liquid fertilizers. As a result, your lawn will be open to use by pets and people quickly after application.

 

Total Lawn & Landscape is committed to achieving the best possible results for your lawn which is why we only use Valley Green fertilizer.  Using these top quality products allows us to deliver a quality of service to achieve the desired results for your lawn.

Our naturally based granular fertilizing program ensures that your lawn will look great the entire season. All of our programs include Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques which are designed to reduce the material that controls weeds and insects. Instead of blanketing the entire lawn with chemicals, we spot treat for weeds and insects on an as-needed basis. All treatments are applied by licensed technicians.
