Five Step Program

Early Spring Fertilizer and Crabgrass Control: This treatment is a balanced fertilizer for color and growth as your lawn comes out of winter. A pre-emergent crabgrass control is also applied which prevents crabgrass from growing. Spot spray weeds as needed.

Early Summer Fertilizer and Crabgrass Control: This treatment promotes a healthy root growth and prepares your lawn for the rigors of summer. We apply another pre-emergent crab grass control with fertilizer and broadleaf weed control. The second application for crabgrass control is needed due to the changes in climate here in the northeast over the past few years. With the warmer days , the pre-emergent has been breaking down sooner so some control is lost so we reapply the pre-emergent.lawn spray

Summer Application Fertilizer and Grub Control: This treatment is designed to help keep your lawn strong through the tough summer and we also apply a Grub Preventative to those lawns that need it. Broadleaf weeds are spot treated as necessary and insects are also treated if found.

Fall Application Fertilizer and Weed Control: The prime objective of this application is to promote recuperative growth and color. A complete seasonal fertilizer is applied. A broadleaf weed control treatment and insect treatment are also applied if needed.

Late Fall Application Fertilizer and Limestone :This treatment is a low nitrogen fertilizer with granular limestone which is very important to keep the pH level of your lawn where it should be. This is designed to help develop your root system for the winter and give your lawn a faster green up in the spring.


Custom Programs

Not all lawns will require a full service program. When you ask us out to take a look at the lawn and go over your needs we can determine, with you, whether your lawn would do better with a custom lawn program or with the standard lawn program


Fowler and Sons Practices IPM
IPM

Fowler and Sons practices an alternative to traditional pest control called Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest and lawn management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. This approach uses treatments that stress the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment within the most economical means. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control and fertilization methods, is used to manage pest damage and lawn treatment.
