Our 4 to 5-Step Fertilization Package is designed to provide our customers with a beautiful lawn, free of weeds, all season long. Four of the five lawn treatments are applied using superior, slow-release, dry granular fertilizer. Slow-release fertilizer steadily feeds your lawn for up to six weeks after the initial application, without the worries of turf burn. In addition, a liquid blanket treatment is applied in the spring for optimal weed control, while also feeding the lawn important micronutrients. Each step plays an important role in establishing and maintaining a thick, green, weed free lawn. All applications are conducted by a certified licensed applicator, using the best materials and equipment the green industry has to offer.
Why Fertilize your Lawn?
• Fertilizing is one of the best ways to establish a lush green lawn, enhancing the beauty of the landscape.
• A healthy lawn wards off pests.
• Dense top growth protects against soil erosion and reduces sound.
• Grass plants release significant amounts of oxygen into the air.
• Dense grass removes significant amounts of carbon dioxide, air pollutants, and dust particles from the air.
• A well-fed lawn comes to life quicker and healthier in the spring.
• Research has shown that a dense root system and top growth allows turfgrass to prevent pesticides and water pollutants from moving down into the soil.
• Aside from water and regular mowing, the single most important thing you can do for your lawn is to provide it with the proper nutrition.
4 or 5-Step Fertilization & Weed Control Program
Application 1 (April - May)
A Spring Awakening:
Apply a granular fertilizer combined with pre-emergent and early post-emergent crabgrass control. Application boosts growth and green color, while also providing extended feeding and weed control.
Application 2 (May - June)
An Early Summer Boost:
Apply a blanket post-emergent selective herbicide to control any broadleaf weeds that have germinated in the turf. Beneficial lawn micronutrients are also applied during this application to improve the lawns overall health and appearance.
Application 2 or 3 (June - July)
Apply a slow-release fertilizer to steadily feed and maintain a healthy lawn throughout the hot days of summer.

Application 4 (August - September)
An Autumn Strengthening:
Apply slow-release fertilizer to steadily feed the lawn and maintain its health throughout the summer and into fall.

If needed, spot treatments are applied to kill any broadleaf weeds that are present at the time of application.
Application 5 (October - November)
Supplies the lawn with the needed food reserves for the dormant winter ahead, while also continuing to strengthen grass roots. Winterizer carries the lawn through the winter and into early spring. If needed, spot treatments are applied to kill any broadleaf weeds that are present at the time of application.
Hybrid Fertilization & Weed Control Program
The Hybrid Program combines our traditional 5-Step Program with our Organic Program, providing a more environmentally friendly option. The first two applications are the same as our traditional 5-Step Program. These two applications effectively control crabgrass and other broadleaf weeds that threaten a beautiful lawn. The final three applications use an organic fertilizer. The Hybrid Program provides a smoother transition from the traditonal program to a complete organic program.
* All Applications are conducted by a certified licensed applicator.
Organic Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control Program
Greenstripe Lawns 5-step Organic Fertilization Program provides customers with a healthy lawn that naturally withstands weeds and is resistant to damaging insects. In early spring, corn gluten meal is applied as a pre-emergent weed control, while also steadily feeding the lawn valuable nitrogen. Corn gluten meal achieves higher weed control rates each consecutive year it is applied. Each application gradually provides the lawn with the key nutrients that are essential for establishing and maintaining a healthy, green lawn. The additional four lawn treatments are applied using a high quality organic turf fertilizer. Each application gradually feeds your lawn for up to five weeks after the initial application.
