Fertilization & Weed Control

The purpose of turf care, such as fertilization and weed control, is to maintain a healthy and attractive lawn. Here’s a more detailed explanation of these two services and how Hughes Landscaping can help you and your landscape.

Fertilization: The goal of fertilization is to provide the necessary nutrients to the grass to promote healthy growth and lush green color. Different types of fertilizers are used to address specific deficiencies in the soil, such as low nitrogen, phosphorus, or potassium levels. Proper fertilization can also help the grass resist disease, pests, and stress from environmental factors.

Weed Control: The purpose of weed control is to prevent or remove unwanted plants from the lawn, such as dandelions, clover, or crabgrass. Weeds can compete with the grass for nutrients, water, and light, and can also reduce the aesthetic appeal of the lawn. Weed control may involve the use of pre-emergent herbicides, which prevent weeds from germinating, or post-emergent herbicides, which kill existing weeds.

Both fertilization and weed control are important aspects of turf care, as they help to maintain the overall health and appearance of the lawn. By providing these services, residential landscaping companies can help homeowners achieve a beautiful and functional outdoor space.
