How Your Irmo TruGreen Lawn Fertilization Service Works
The Sandhills of South Carolina are well-known for their poor soil quality, so if you’ve struggled to create a lush, healthy green lawn for your home, now you know why. Thankfully, our Irmo TruGreen lawn fertilization services are designed to turn even the most difficult yards into a welcome addition, adding curb appeal and aesthetic value to any home.
Irmo TruGreen Lawn Fertilization Services Start From the Ground UpMost lawn care problems for homes in the Midlands of South Carolina stem from the region’s coarse, sandy soil. It doesn’t hold water well, it’s nutrient-poor and it’s home to some stubborn grassy weeds like Broomsedge and Wiregrass—you do not want these growing in your yard.
To create an environment where your grass can thrive, our TruExpertSM certified specialists will perform a Healthy Lawn Analysis®,✦ taking soil samples and looking for signs of weeds, pests or lawn disease. Based on our test results, we’ll customize a fertilizer to add missing nutrients back to your soil, making it rich and fertile so your grass has the best foundation for growth possible. We’ll also use lime to balance the pH of your soil if necessary, improving growth and nutrient availability.
TruGreen Irmo Weed Control and Other ServicesOf course, just treating the soil won’t put your lawn on the fast track to health and beauty. That’s why we combine a number of other lawn care initiatives into our plans—plus a few additional items that you might want to add on like tree and shrub service. Some common components of our Irmo TruGreen lawn fertilization services include:
- Specialized two-tier weed control. To remove any native weeds from your lawn without actually harming your grass, our specialists first use a targeted weed control application and then follow it up with a pre-emergent application to make sure weeds don’t return.
- Core aeration. Compacted soil prevents your grass from getting enough oxygen to its roots, leading to poor growth and thinning grass. Aeration removes small plugs of grass, thatch and soil from your lawn, allowing air, water and nutrients to flow freely from the surface to your grass’s roots. This promotes healthier, greener grass with less thatch.
- Mosquito Defense and tick protection. Worried about diseases like Zika and West Nile Virus? Our TruGreen Mosquito Defense application can make your yard a virtual mosquito-free zone within 24 hours—backed by our Mosquito-Free Guarantee✧✦ And our TruShieldSM Flea and Tick Control Plan not only helps keep your family safe from dangerous tick bites that can transmit Lyme Disease and Rocky Mountain Fever, but it also kills chiggers, spiders, ants and earwigs to keep your yard as safe as it is beautiful.
