Your lawn is a living entity that needs water and nutrients to thrive and ensuring it gets the right amount of each will help it grow thick and healthy.  When a lawn has a strong root system from being properly nourished, it can better resist diseases and defend itself against weeds.  If your lawn does not get enough water and nutrients, weeds are more likely to appear and it is more vulnerable to disease.

At Hendricksen Tree Care, we provide lawn fertilization and weed control for residential and commercial lawns in Lake Bluff, IL.  We will ensure that your lawn gets the proper blend of fertilizer at the right time of the season with our fertilizer applications, and we can help prevent weeds with pre-emergent treatments.

Lawn Fertilization

Lawns need adequate amounts of both water and nutrients, so while regular watering is good for your lawn, you also need to ensure that it gets the proper nutrients.  Fertilizer applications help supplement the nutrients that the lawn gets naturally from the soil to ensure that it gets everything it needs to grow thick and healthy.  You need to make sure that you fertilize your lawn with the right type of fertilizer for your type of grass and for the time of the season.

Applying the right amount of fertilizer is important as over fertilization can have harmful effects.  Too much fertilizer can burn the lawn and cause wilting, stunted growth, and root damage.  Working with our arborists at Hendricksen Tree Care will help ensure that your lawn gets the right amount of the right type of fertilizer for the specific time of year of each application.

Our arborists will determine the best blend of fertilizer for your lawn according to the type of grass.  We apply fertilizer several times throughout the growing season and we will adjust the blend for the specific time of the year.  The fertilizer we use is slow-release granular fertilizer that releases nutrients slowly into the lawn to keep them nourished over a period of time.  If your lawn is struggling to grow, we may provide more frequent fertilizer applications.

Weed Control

Lawns can naturally defend themselves from weeds as a strong root system will choke them out before they appear.  However, all lawns are still vulnerable to weeds, especially if they do not have a strong enough root system.

Our arborists can provide preventative, pre-emergent treatments to keep your lawn weed free.  We consider the type of grass, soil condition, and the types of weeds that may form in your lawn to provide the best possible pre-emergent treatment.  If your lawn becomes affected by weeds, we use targeted, post-emergent treatments to eliminate them.  You can expect us to provide a pre-emergent treatment on each visit and we will do follow up visits after post-emergent treatments to ensure that they are effective.
