Every year, your lawn talks to you, so to speak. More accurately, your lawn provides signs that it needs something. Whether that is water, fertilizer, aeration or grub control…your lawn will tell you when something is wrong. Unfortunately sometimes you don’t notice until it’s too late. That’s where we come in. At Red Fern, we’ll stay ahead of your lawn’s needs and keep it happy
and healthy all season long.
Our 5-Step Fertilization Package is
designed to provide our customers
with a beautiful lawn, free of weeds, all season long. All five of our 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 micro nutrients. 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 helps prevent 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 lawn aerating, the single most important thing you can do for your lawn is to provide it with the proper nutrition.
The difference between fertilized and non fertilized lawn
