Fertilizing

Fertilization Services
Properly timed fertilizing and weed control for your lawn can be the difference between an average lawn and a picture perfect lawn. At Pro-Mow we wait until soil temperatures are at or around 50 degrees before we put down our crabgrass pre-emergent. Temperature and precipitation are also considered when making our applications. If conditions are unfavorable we will reschedule our service to ensure your lawn is getting the most out of our applications.

Weeds, grubs, and insect feeding critters are all considered pests, and can all negatively impact the health and appearance of your lawn. At Pro-Mow we utilize an IPM (integrated pest management) strategy to minimize the effects of pests on your lawn. Our applications are targeted specifically toward each pest in order to avoid impacting the many beneficial organisms in your lawn. Our company employs only licensed technicians and provides continued education in order to provide our customers with the best possible chance in obtaining that picture perfect lawn.


A properly fertilized lawn is essential in maintaining a healthy turf stand. At Pro-Mow we use only phosphorous free slow release fertilizers on your lawn. Slow release fertilizers break down slowly over a longer period of time feeding your grass continually and reducing a surge in growth commonly associated with liquid applications.

By utilizing Phosphorous free fertilizers we are reducing our impact on the environment by protecting our streams and lakes from excess phosphorous which increases algae growth.
