We apply treatments every four to six weeks spanning from March to October, applying fertilizer and weed control on each treatment. Our proven program tailors every service to your lawn and the season by adjusting the type and amount of fertilizer and weed control we use.
We use the best products on the market for the fasted results for weed control. We offer two types of weed control, pre-emergent, which stops weeds before they emerge, and post-emergent, which kills weeds after they have grown.
We pair fertilizing with weed control to help your lawn grow and prevent weeds from growing. We use a high-quality fertilizer mixed with our unique blend of micronutrients to provide the right amount of the three primary nutrients nitrogen, phosphorous, potassium, and other necessary nutrients.

Drought defense is our way of bundling two very special products together to provide our customers with a simple way to improve their lawn's drought tolerance. It is designed to be added to our Premium Lawn Care Program. Adding Drought Defense to a lawn care program gives a proactive edge in protecting lawns against drought and heat stress.
We have seen what impact a drought can have on our lawns, from water restrictions, broken sprinklers, heat, and other hazards; drought can send a lawn into dormancy or death during any season. With our Drought Defense Program, you can be proactive, protecting your lawn against drought and heat stress.
What Exactly Is Drought/Heat Stress?
Signs of drought stress and heat stress show up when the environment gets too dry or too hot. When these stresses persist, the lawn begins to enter dormancy.
The lawn will become dormant as the roots pull all nutrients and moisture from the grass blades. It's a natural safety mechanism the grass uses to survive cold winters, and in this case, hot summers. Once conditions return to normal, the roots will begin to sprout new grass blades.
During ideal conditions, you will be able to water your lawn enough to keep it from going dormant. Though water restrictions due to the drought and the cost of irrigating challenged us to find a better solution. Our Drought Defense Program is that solution.
Other Lawn Services
We offer more services than fertilizing and weed control! Below, you can read about what we can do for your lawn:
- Liquid Aeration- aerating your lawn every year promotes healthy growth. We use an organic soil conditioner, which replaces mechanical Aeration.
- Back to Green- if you want to keep your lawn green through the dry summer, we can help with our proactive Back to Green treatment. This treatment will help your lawn retain more moisture, which will require less irrigation to keep it green.
- Flowerbed Treatment- your yard probably contains more than your lawn. Whether it is concrete, dirt, gravel, or flowerbeds, we offer to spot treat all areas outside your lawn for weeds. We can also fertilize these areas upon request!
- Grub Control- found in nearly every Utah lawn, grubs can kill patches of lawn if their colony becomes big enough. Grub control is included, free of charge, with our Premium Lawn Program.
- Fertilizer - Just like you do, your lawn needs nutrients to survive and thrive. On every service, we will apply the perfect amount of fertilizer to keep your lawn healthy. We will apply the fertilizer in liquid or granular form, depending on the weather and other circumstances.
What Is Aeration?
Aeration in the context of lawn health is the process of incorporating air into the soil. Earthworms and many beneficial microorganisms require oxygen to thrive. A Healthy population of these organisms provides fertile soil. We often think of plants using photosynthesis through their leaves to exchange gasses, but did you know that plants need to breathe through their roots as well? Oxygen in the soil is absorbed through the roots and converted into crucial energy. Healthy soil should contain about 25% oxygen.
