Additional Treatments Available as Necessary

Nutsedge Control – Also known as nutgrass and watergrass, this weed has increasingly become a problem in recent years. Multiple treatments may be necessary if you have a large infestation.

Preventative Fungicide – This treatment prevents damage caused by turf diseases.

Curative Fungicide – If the preventative fungicide treatment was not applied, and disease develops, this treatment will stop further damage.

Grub Control

Grubworms have the potential to inflict severe damage to a lawn if left untreated. During their lifecycle grubs spend multiple seasons consuming grass roots before emerging from the surface as beetles. Our grub control is absorbed by the turfgrass and when the grubs begin to eat the roots, they consume the product and are eliminated. This method of control prevents the insecticide from harming other subsurface insects that can be beneficial to your lawn and the environment.
