For lawns to stay healthy and grow to their full potential, they need to get the proper amount of nutrients and water.  A strong and healthy lawn not only looks good, but also resists weeds and diseases.  If lawns do not get the proper amount of nutrients, they will not grow to their full potential and have a more difficult time resisting weeds and diseases.

At Hendricksen Tree Care, we provide lawn fertilization and weed control for residential and commercial lawns in Northbrook, IL.  We will apply fertilizer blends throughout the season to deliver nutrients to your lawn that will help it reach the desired thickness.  We can also protect your lawn from weeds with our weed control treatments.

Lawn Fertilization

Getting the right amount of nutrients is important for lawns to grow to their full potential and stay healthy.  Lawns do get some of their nutrients naturally from the soil but benefit from the additional nutrients provided by fertilization.  Applying fertilizer ensures that your lawn gets an abundance of nutrients to grow thick and healthy.

It is important for fertilizer to be applied in the right amount because overfertilization can be harmful for the lawn.  Applying too much fertilizer can cause stunted growth, burning, wilting, and root damage that will result in dead sections.  Our professionals will apply the right amount of fertilizer for your lawn to give it the nutrients it needs.

Our experienced arborists will apply fertilizer blends that are best suited for the type of grass in your lawn, and we fertilize at specific times of the year.  We use slow-release granular fertilizers that gradually release nutrients into the soil.  If your lawn is struggling, we can provide more frequent fertilization applications.

Weed Control

When a lawn is thick and healthy, it can protect itself from weeds by choking them out before they can fully grow.  However, weeds can still appear and removing them can be difficult.

We can help prevent weeds from appearing in your lawn with pre-emergent weed treatments and we can eliminate weeds from your lawn with post-emergent treatments.  The weed treatments we use are based on the grass type and soil condition of your lawn as well as the types of weeds affecting your lawn.  Each visit, we will treat your lawn with a pre-emergent.  If your lawn is treated with a post-emergent, we will do follow up visits to ensure that the weeds have been removed.

Keeping your lawn healthy with proper fertilization will help it grow thick which helps it choke out weeds and resist disease.  Our professionals can tailor our fertilization and weed control services to your lawn to prevent weeds and promote growth.
