Apply Fertilizer and Weed Control For a Healthy Lawn
At Zeppa’s we know that fertilization is the foundational building block of great lawn care. Grass needs nutrients to survive which most soils lack. A healthy lawn is better able to battle with the common culprits of turf attack like drought, disease and weed infestation. Fertilizer is food and nutrition for the grass. Fertilizer is described by its three components of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These ingredients are listed in “parts” for example 20-5-10 would be a blend containing 20 percent of nitrogen, 5 percent phosphorus and 10 percent potassium. Zeppa’s applied high quality seasonally blended lawn fertilizer that provides attractive results.
You don’t want weeds intruding on your turf masterpiece. Weeds are hearty and aggressive. Zeppa’s uses both pre-emergent and post-emergent herbicides to control weeds. The “pre” before germination and the “post” after germination weed controls attack at different phases of the weed plant’s life cycle. Pre-emergents control the germination of seeds, post work after germination. Our products control crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. Broadleaf weeds are plants like: dandelion, clover, chickweed and henbit. Some of the harder to control weeds like ivy and violet will be minimized and require repeated treatments. As you can see there are a lot of different products available to control weeds. We research and investigate weed control products so you don’t have to. We eliminate unsightly weeds by applying weed control at the proper time, at the proper rate.
