Lawn Care

At Bowman’s Pro Turf, Co., we realize that no two lawns are alike. Therefore, we carry a variety of products on our trucks at all times. This allows us to custom tailor a program to fit your lawn and soil requirements while staying in tune with changing weather conditions. Our Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs are designed to create a healthy and beautiful lawn by improving plant strength and density to control weed, insect and disease attacks with minimum pesticide use. Pest control materials are carefully selected and applied to minimize risk to human health, beneficial and non-targeted organisms, and the environment.

Healthy Basic Lawn Program Schedule

Our preferred and most popular lawn care program is called the Health Basic Lawn Program. Below is a summary of what is provided through this service.

Lawn applications begin in early March and run through mid-December, applied at six- to eight-week intervals. Our recommended full-service IPM program consists of five applications of balanced fertilizer, broadleaf weed control, crabgrass pre-emergent and surface insect control. (Nutsedge & disease treatments are available for an additional charge.) Free service calls and on-site consultations are included in our Healthy Basic Lawn Program.

Fertilizer

We specially select slow-release, granular fertilizers to provide a steady source of food throughout the growing season, which is an excellent value to you and your lawn. Fertilizers are refined and upgraded products of nature obtained from synthetic processes, natural mineral deposits, by-products and organic sources containing plant food elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potash and many other essential nutrients. Fertilizers contain nothing that is not already present in productive soil. There is only one difference between plants and animals: The air we breathe is the same air the plants exhale, and vice-versa. As far as the food we eat goes, it is chemically the same as what the plants need to live.

Weed Control

Some weeds are easy to eradicate, while some may take repeated treatments. Post-emergent controls will be applied to broadleaf weeds actively growing in your lawn as needed throughout the year. Springtime applications of pre-emergent crabgrass control will be applied before germination begins. All weed control products are applied through IPM strategies.

Insect Control

Insects can destroy a lawn in a very short time. Applying controls for these grass-attacking insects is part of your regular program. This sometimes requires the careful and responsible use of effective pesticides through IPM strategies. Every material we use is selected to deliver the best solution to a specific problem. Safety to you and your family is our commitment. (Grub prevention applications – extra charge.)
