TruGreen Pittsburgh Lawn Fertilization Service
No two yards are alike, but in Pittsburgh, many homes share the same acidic soils that make it hard for lawns to grow to their full potential. Our TruGreen Pittsburgh branch specializes in lawn fertilization and other services meant to bring balance to your soil and lush, dense grass to your landscape.
How Does TruGreen Lawn Fertilization Service Work?Before we start any work on your lawn, our PhD-certified specialists will come to your home and perform a Healthy Lawn Analysis®? to measure the pH balance of your soil. Most Pittsburgh soils have a lower pH level, which makes it harder for grass to grow and be healthy. To fix this, our lawn fertilization professionals will use the results of their soil analysis to customize a supplemental treatment for your lawn, which we’ll apply every 4 to 6 weeks as necessary.
These nutrients and micronutrients will bring your soil’s pH balance within an acceptable range for the type of turf grass you have in your yard. Within weeks, you’ll see the difference as thicker, lusher grass grows in more densely, crowding out weeds that can no longer fight for nutrients and sunlight in your new lawn.
We’ll also look for weeds, plus signs of insects and lawn disease. Thanks to the freezing cold winters and acidic soils, many Pittsburgh lawns are susceptible to seasonal lawn diseases like Red Thread in early summer or “orange shoe disease” (otherwise known as Lawn Rust) in late summer. If we find any active infection, we’ll work quickly to cure your lawn and cultivate an environment where lawn disease is no longer welcome in your yard.
TruGreen Pittsburgh Lawn Pest and Weed-Killing ServicesFor other lawn intruders like insects and weeds, our experts at TruGreen Pittsburgh have a similar approach. First, we use targeted control to kill any lawn pests and weeds we find living in your yard. This includes problematic White Grubs and Sod Webworms, which can destroy your grass if left unchecked.
Next, we employ pre-emergent control methods to make sure that both weeds and insects don’t come back to your yard any time soon. As your grass continues to grow stronger, denser and healthier thanks to our lawn fertilization services, its natural resistance to insects and weeds will eventually develop.
