Turf Care Programs & Services

Let's face it, there is much more to lawn care than most are aware of. There is a true science around how a plant (grass) grows and thrives.  At ILS, we combine understanding the complexitites of the science, knowing the appropriate timing based on our environmental factors, along with our genuine care to provide you exceptional residential and commercial lawn care.

 

We specialize in fertilization, weed control, soil ammendments, aeration, over-seed, tree and shrub health solutions, mosquito/flea and tick, insect/pest control along with vegetation control and other preventative and curative solutions for your lawn. 

At ILS we understand that not all lawns are the same, and therefore we use an "innovative" approach to tailor a solution that is best for the unique needs of your lawn.

PROGRAM APPLICATIONS:

Early Spring

Application designed to increase rooting and decrease stress pressure. Contains biologically active materials of Humic Acid and Sea Kelp to aid in initial spring green up, to buffer and extend nitrogen release rates, and to add oxygen to the soil profile for greater nutrient uptake. Additionally, it helps prevent crabgrass and other annual grassy-type weeds from growing before weed germination.

 

Spring

Application designed to increase rooting and decrease stress pressure. Contains biologically active materials of Humic Acid and Sea Kelp to aid in initial spring green up, to buffer and extend nitrogen release rates, and to add oxygen to the soil profile for greater nutrient uptake. Additionally, it helps prevent crabgrass and other annual grassy-type weeds from growing before weed germination.

 

Early Summer

Application designed to help prepare for summer stress such as drought, heat and disease. Benefits include increased micro & macro nutrients, root-mass development and improved soil carbon levels. Includes iron to maintain green turf without pushing top growth with excess nitrogen.

 

Summer

Application designed to increase rooting, pest resistance, drought protection, and nutrient uptake while reducing senescence.

 

Early Fall

Application combing a carbon fertilizer and bio-stimulant, a powerful combination that acts as a natural boost to the plant by supplying key elements for plant development. Works by gradually improving the health of the grass by promoting growth and enhancing the nutrients already available.

 

Late Fall

Application to deliver nutrients lawns need to recover and repair from heat, drought and disease. Helps increase root and shoot mass to promote stress tolerance and help build strong deep roots.

ADDED SERVICES (INCLUDED IN THE SUPERIOR PROGRAM):

Grub Preventative

Application containing an insecticide to prevent grubs from hatching and damaging the lawn. It is important to thoroughly water in this product for it to be effective.

 

Core Aeration

Core aeration removes plugs or "cores" of soil and thatch from a lawn. Core aeration reduces soil compaction, creating a channel through which oxygen, water, and nutrients can penetrate the soil. Core aeration is also a great time to seed the lawn.

 

ADDITIONAL SERVICES:

Over-Seed

ILS uses the highest quality seed that cannot be found at local retail stores. Over-seeding is typically done at the time of core aeration. It is an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of turf, establish or improve existing grass varieties and enhance the color of a lawn.

 

Vegetation Control

Applications to eliminate weeds and grasses in unwanted areas such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, gravel paths, fence lines, landscaping and other areas where no vegetation is desired.

Perimeter Pest

An insecticide perimeter treatment that serves as a first line of defense around your home and landscaping, stopping pests before they enter. We offer five treatments per year and can customize the program to fit individual needs.

 

Mosquito/ Flea & Tick Control

Our Mosquito / Flea & Tick Control program will provide you season long freedom from pesky fleas, ticks and mosquitos that carry and spread dangerous diseases: West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), and the Zika virus. Our full program consists of five applications (more are available upon request). Beyond a program, we can cover special outdoor events and activities such as weddings, graduations, birthdays, and holiday gatherings, just schedule 1 week in advance.  Treatment periods are between April and October and typically last for one month (28 days) but are dependent on weather and rain. This service is guaranteed, and free service calls are offered to those customers on a full control program.

Root Growth Stimulant

Root Growth Stimulants are designed to increase rooting and decrease stress pressure caused by heat and drought. The biologically active material contains Humic Acid and Sea Kelp to aid in initial spring green up, to buffer and extend nitrogen release rates, and to add oxygen to the soil profile for greater nutrient uptake.

Liquid Aeration

Liquid aeration is designed to break up and loosen topsoil and encourage deeper rooting to drive more oxygen into the topsoil profile. By utilizing key bio-stimulants and highly oxidizing material at key growth stages. Driving roots deeper will crack the soil and with the aid of powerful oxygen adding ingredients will provide a dynamic shift in your soil.

Moisture Manager

Moisture Manager technology is designed to reduce overall watering and trap moisture where it is needed most, the root zone. It consists of a group of hygroscopic and humectant components that attract moisture and make it available to plant roots reducing loss to evaporation. Moisture Manager combines the patented Hydretain soil moisture management technology with a naturally derived soil surfactant. Irrigation immediately after application is recommended, however within 3-5 days is acceptable. To prevent mower pick-up, delay mowing until product has been watered in. Additional applications may be required as the necessity for more frequent irrigation increases.
