Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control Services in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax, VA
J&J Landscape Management, Inc. has been providing professional lawn fertilization and weed control for our customers in Northern Virginia for over 20 years. During that time, we have created a lawn care program with proven results that can be seen in the healthy and beautiful turf at the properties we maintain. Our program follows the guidelines put forth by the Virginia Tech Cooperative Extension and has been reviewed and approved by turf care experts. Here is a breakdown of the lawn fertilization and weed control services provided.
1. Early Spring Pre-Emergent Weed Control (March - April)
Getting an early jump on annual grassy weeds such as crab grass is very important. Pre-emergent weed controls prevent annual weed seeds from germinating in the spring. This is the only way guarantee grassy weeds won't infiltrate your turf. The general time window for this application is early spring, but this varies every year depending on soil temperatures and weather conditions. Trust the J&J team to apply your pre-emergent properly and timely to ensure your lawn is weed free all year long.
2. Late Spring Post-Emergent Weed Control (May - June)
Post-Emergent weed control treats all broadleaf weeds that may be present in your lawn. Late spring is the time to treat these weeds, before they can spread and take over your property. Clover, broadleaf plantains, dandelion, ground ivy, and other broadleaf weeds are treated at this time.
3. Mid Summer Broadleaf Spot Treatment (June - July)
Invariably, some small broadleaf weeds may still be visible in mid-summer, especially in lawns that are new to a professional treatment program. Our mid summer visit treats all of these broadleaf weeds in addition to any sedge weeds that may be present.
4. Aeration/Over-seed/Fertilization (August - September)
Aeration and over-seeding is one of the most important steps to take to improve and maintain your lawn. Aeration relieves the compaction that our Northern Virginia soil is famous for, allowing air, water, and nutrients to reach the root system of your lawn. Aeration also leaves perfect pockets for seed to establish and take root. We apply a starter fertilizer at the time of aeration and over-seeding that provides the new seed and the existing turf the perfect amount of nutrients.
5. Early Fall Fertilization (September - October)
Fall is the best time to fertilize cool season grasses in Virginia. Our fall fertilizer visits provide a total of 3.5 lbs of Nitrogen per 1,000 sq. ft. of turf area, just the right amount to ensure thick, lush, green turf.
6. Late Fall Fertilization (October - November)
Our final turf application of the year is the late fall fertilizer. This application is a slow release fertilizer that gives your lawn the nutrients it needs to survive the winter and come back stronger than ever next spring.
