Turf Care

Adhering to a year-round turf care program is an important step in establishing and maintaining a healthy, beautiful lawn. At Bear Creek Landscapes, we customize our turf care program to meet the needs of your lawn based on the time of year and with regard to the type and variety of grasses involved.

An important aspect of our program is the control of all types of weeds, both pre-and post-emergent. We also adjust soil pH levels as necessary to assist your lawn in utilizing all of the nutrients available. And we constantly monitor your lawn for potential turf diseases and insect problems, and can offer the ideal treatment for any issues that may arise.

*Note: The following programs are for reference only. Call us today for a program custom tailored to address your lawn and landscape’s individual needs.

Turf Program:

  • Winter – Adjust soil pH as necessary and spot- spray winter annual weeds. Note: Fire ant control should be done at this time, and is available for an additional fee.
  • Early spring – Application of a balanced fertilizer, and pre-emergent weed control for summer annual broad leaf and grassy weeds.
  • Late spring/early summer – Apply slow- release fertilizer specific to the type of lawn. Second application of pre-emergent weed control for summer annual weeds. Spot- spray any existing weeds. Core aeration is recommended at this time for warm season grasses, and is available for an additional fee.
  • Summer – Higher nitrogen fertilizer is applied for warm season grasses. Spot spray existing weeds if necessary. Iron may be added for color.
  • Fall – Higher potassium fertilizer is applied to prepare your lawn for winter. Pre-emergent weed control for winter broad leaf weeds and Poa Annua. Core aeration is recommended at this time for cool season lawns, and is available for an additional fee.
