Ecolawn Care – Fertilization Services
At Ecolawn Care, we take our mission for finding the safest and best quality products to produce beautiful, green lawns without weeds. Our customer service makes your relationship with us easy and hassle-free.
How Does Fertilization Work?
At Ecolawn Care, we split up our fertilization program into three zones to meet the unique needs of each area that we service:
- Heber Valley gets six fertilization applications per season
- Park City gets five fertilization applications since the area is higher into the mountains
- The Wasatch Front gets seven fertilization applications because the area is lower on the mountain range and has a longer growing season.
During the growing season, we visit your home on a four to six-week basis to apply nutrients to your lawn. We use fertilizers that will be a mix of granular and liquid depending on the needs of the soil and turfgrass.
We use a wide variety of organic and hybrid fertilization applications based on the time of year too. Here’s what you need to know about our fertilization treatments:
- Some treatments are 100% organic
- Some treatments are a mix of organic and conventional treatments
- Some treatments are conventional, but diluted to reduce the number of chemicals we put on your lawn
- When we apply fertilizer treatments, we may be working on soil health or turfgrass health. Both areas need balance in their nutritional needs to grow a healthy lawn.
We base our programs on the lawn and soil needs of a region as well as local environmental concerns. For example, if it’s peak weed season, we use a hybrid mix including organic nutrients as well as some weed controls in a weaker concentration.
When we use the above method, we put fewer conventional products in the ground compared to using a strictly conventional fertilization program.
What Type of Fertilization Products Do We Use?
We use granular products during the summer as well as locally brewed compost teas in the summer and fall.
Who Needs Ecolawn Care’s Fertilization Service?
Homeowners benefit from our fertilization program if they have a desire for a beautiful lawn with no weeds and a healthy soil eco-system. The right client trusts us to do a professional job without feeling the need to oversee the lawn technician.
We guarantee our results. You have 10 days after treatment to let us know if your lawn is experiencing any problems with the treatment we applied at our last visit. If there is a problem within the 10-day window, we’ll return to your property to fix it without any additional cost to you.
We highly encourage communication. Since our technicians work on your property only once a month, we won’t know if there’s a problem unless you reach out to us. Then, we’ll be happy to fix the problem for you.
How Do You Benefit from Ecolawn Care’s Fertilization Program?
There is a stark difference between lawns that are fertilized versus ones that aren’t fertilized. A fertilized lawn produces deep green grass that’s thick and dense with no room for weeds.
If you invest in organic fertilization, you’ll see that your turfgrass can withstand the dry, hot Utah summers. There will be no brown spots or thinning areas on your lawn.
Instead, your turfgrass is green, thick and a delight to walk on without shoes. Conversely, you can spot a non-fertilized lawn when there is weak turf growth, many weeds and bare spots. Fertilization is vital for maintaining full, green grass.
Fertilization works to provide nutrients to the soil that houses turfgrass. The earth is a living ecosystem that needs nutrients to keep the organisms below-ground thriving.
Earthworms, nematodes, spiders, and microorganisms all work together to provide a busy ecosystem that benefits the earth and the plants that grow from it.
You’ll feel good coming home from work and seeing that there’s balance with your lawn—healthy soil and healthy turfgrass. And you’ll know that your soil and turf are in balance by the incredible health and vitality in your lawn.
How Does Your Property Benefit from Ecolawn Care’s Fertilization Program?
The Wasatch Mountain range varies in climate along with the harsh summer weather that plagues Utah lawns.
Organic lawn products retain moisture in the soil to help turfgrass survive the climatic extremes. When the soil is healthy and vibrant, turfgrass roots can go deep into the ground to find these moisture stores—even during the winter.
Organic fertilization also uses fewer chemicals, feeds the soil and gets the best result with less impact on the environment. Lawns get depleted as well as addicted to traditional lawn care products.
How do we know? Your turf will require more and more synthetic materials to keep it looking green and weed-free. At Ecolawn, we restore depleted soil to health with our organic fertilizers and compost teas.
Likewise, we use some diluted conventional fertilizers because 100% organic lawn care is cost-prohibitive. Currently, we don’t have a full organic program because of the high costs, and a full organic lawn care program doesn’t deliver high-quality results.
If you choose not to hire us for your lawn care needs, you may end up having a mediocre lawn with weeds, compacted soil and dull color.
At Ecolawn Care, we want to provide lawn care products and services that are cleaner and protect your Utah lawn from a lot of environmental damage.
For example, traditional lawn treatments irritate earthworms, and soil without earthworms is not sustainable. So, we offset the damage caused by conventional fertilization treatments and feed the soil with compost teas and other amendments to encourage healthy earthworm populations.
We also want long-term relationships with our customers. A relationship for the long haul ensures that your turfgrass gets consistent, sustainable lawn service.
When You Invest in Organic Lawn Care, You’ll Notice You Have a Beautiful, Healthy Lawn
When you invest in Ecolawn’s fertilization program, you’re getting a fertilizer blend that’s 80% clean. Our lawn fertilizers promote healthy soil and a healthy green lawn. We use slow-release fertilizers that slowly unleashes nutrients and feeds the soil over time.
Typically, slow release fertilizers last between four to six weeks. Some fertilizers last even longer. For example, some of our fertilizers release nutrients over two months. When we visit your property on those off months, we’ll focus on the health of your soil by adding soil amendments and compost teas.
How Do We Keep Up with Best Lawn Care Practices?
At Ecolawn Care, we stay up-to-date with the latest turfgrass science from Utah State University. A healthy lawn is a perfect example that Ecolawn’s fertilizer is working to produce a beautiful Park City or Salt Lake City lawn.
We’re always looking for better quality lawn care products, including fertilizers that develop a gorgeous lawn while reducing pollution.
