Lawn Fertilizer Services

Our fertilization program will promote a green, thick and healthy turf that can better withstand heavy traffic and the stresses of drought, disease, and insects. Our customized fertilizer applications are granular or liquid depending on the application.

Fertilizer Treatments

Great Greens Lawn Care considers many factors when applying fertilizers. The key elements are how much product to use, what kind of fertilizer and when to apply it. Timing is critical when fertilizing lawns in the Aurora – Naperville area. Depending on your lawn quality and plan, our customized plans include season-long fertilizer applications, pre-emergent, weed control, grub control, fungal disease control, core aeration, overseeding, and winterizer. If your lawn is in bad shape, we recommend our lawn renovation services that will fix bare spots, weeds, lack of color, and lawn density. Our renovation services include core aeration, power raking, overseeding, top dressing with compost and lime applications.

Lawn Treatment Program

Great Greens Lawn Fertilizing Program schedule runs from early spring to late fall. Your first application normally consists of a pre-emergent application that will prevent the germination of weed seeds, and provide a high Nitrogen application to encourage color and turf growth.
