Lawn fertilizer cost like any other lawn care service is going to depend of the material used to on the job .
We at Anthony Agudelo Landscaping are of the opinion that a good fertilizer should be made with as much organic matter as possible, so this way when the material gets in contact with the soil it begins to break down and improve the top soil layer.
In the Morristown and Randolph areas of New Jersey most likely a single application of fertilizer and weed control is going to begin around $50
How much does lawn care cost for an annual package in the area of Morristown & Randolph Nj is going to depend on several factors being the most important the total square footage of your lawn area, the access of the equipment, the location of your property.
At Anthony Agudelo Landscaping we want to help you make the distinction between lawn maintenance and lawn care.
Lawn care is the applications of fertilizer, control of weeds & insects and so on.
The cost for a small yard will start at $300.00 a medium size lot $600.00 and a large lot $1000.00
Finally price also depends on the number of treatments done in a season.
Are grub control, lime application part of the package or are they additional cost ?
A lawn care program for Morristown should include:
– Fertilizer with small quantity of nitrogen in the spring if the lawn is going to get several applications during the growing season, if it is only getting 1 or 2 then we should wait to the fall to do it.
– Crabgrass preventer one or twice depending on the severity of the problem the previous year.
– Broad leaf weed control should be done early in the season because once the temperature goes above 85 degrees there is the risk of harming the lawn.
– lime application to correct the PH in the soil to maintain it near 6.5
– Insect control for surface feeding insects like chinch bugs and for root feeding insects like grubs
– Fungus control would only be suggested in a curative basis since it has to do a lot with the weather conditions because in order for it to occur 3 factors have to be present, a susceptible plant, the presence of the infection and the right weather conditions for the disease to spread.
The only other factor that comes to mind is the mowing height and frequency and I would like to say the higher the length of the grass blades the better for the plant because it will allow for a better photosynthesis, it will shade the crabgrass in its early stages and slow down its growth and will stand a better chance in hot conditions because it has a deeper root system.
Done early in the season so if there are any bare or thin areas in the lawn grass seed and a very light fertilizer application could be done, giving it time to germinate before a crabgrass preventer has to be put down.
It is the time to cut back perennials, ornamental grasses, dead or broken branches, if the ground is not frozen split perennials, move any plants to its new location and might also be a time to cut back overgrown plants if you know their flowering cycle. It is also the perfect time to apply a weed pre-emergent in the shrubs and flower beds so you get them before they germinate in the up coming season.
Finally after everything has been cleaned then it is time for mulching this way weeds do not get a chance to germinate.
