Like other living things, lawns need the right amount of nutrients to stay healthy and grow to their full potential.  Lawns that get the water and nutrients they need are healthy and strong enough to resist diseases and choke out weeds before they are formed.  Lawns that are deprived of the water and nutrients they need will get weak which makes them more vulnerable to weeds and diseases.

Hendricksen Tree Care provides residential and commercial lawn fertilization and weed control throughout Chicagoland.  These services include fertilizer applications at specific times during the growing season to help the lawn grow to its desired thickness.  We will also help prevent the emergence of weeds with weed control applications.

Lawn Fertilization

Water is an important element in keeping lawns healthy, but grass also needs the proper nutrients to grow thick.  While the soil does naturally provide a level of nutrients to the lawn, this should be supplemented with fertilization.  Fertilizer applications give lawns an abundance of the nutrients they need at the right time of the season.

Fertilizer must be applied in the right amount as over fertilization can cause problems for a lawn including wilting, burning, stunted growth, and root damage that can kill sections of the lawn.  We will make sure that the proper fertilizer blend is applied in the right amount so that your lawn gets the nutrients it needs.

We will decide which fertilizer is best for your lawn based on the type of grass and we apply specific blends at certain times of the year.  The slow-release granular fertilizer we apply delivers nutrients gradually to keep lawns fed.  We do fertilizer applications at specific times of the season, but we can also provide more frequent applications for struggling lawns.

Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control in Illinois

Weed Control

Healthy lawns have strong root systems that can choke out weeds before they become established. However, weeds will appear in vulnerable lawns, and it is difficult to get rid of them.

Our professionals will help protect your lawn from weeds with preventative pre-emergent treatments and treat affected lawns with post-emergent treatments to eliminate weeds.  We determine the best weed treatments for your lawn based on the grass type, soil condition, and the type of weeds found on your lawn.  We apply a pre-emergent treatment to your lawn on each visit and after post-emergent treatments, we will do follow up visits to make sure the treatments are effective.
