Green healthy lawn in Northglenn fertilized by Down to Earth.

Ongoing fertilization is what keeps your Colorado lawn a cut above the rest. Grass needs three nutrients, phosphorus, potassium, and nitrogen in the perfect blend to be green and healthy. Our lawn maintenance experts are trained to understand your species of grass, from Kentucky bluegrass to fine fescue, your soil’s pH, and your yard size, to determine the balance of fertilizers that will work best for optimum growth.

Timing is everything when it comes to lawn fertilization. With variables like the health and thickness of your full-grown lawn, or whether you are trying to establish delicate new turf, we recommend fertilizing three to four times per year:

  • Early Spring - This application can be optional but we recommend a slow-release fertilizer be applied sometime in March or April.
  • Late Spring - As we prepare for the warmer summer months a late spring application, with slow-release fertilizer, should be applied in May or early June.
  • Late Summer - When summer starts to come to an end in late August, we apply another round of proper slow-release fertilizer.
  • Mid-Autumn - The final fertilization of the season, before winter sets in, will be a slow-release winter blend fertilizer applied in October or early November.

Fertilization is essential to your lawn maintenance plan. A well-fertilized lawn is thicker and greener, and more able to fight off weeds, drought, disease, and pests.

Weed control services for your lawn and landscaping.

Dead grass and weeds in a lawn that needs specialized weed control and fertilization treatments from Down to Earth.

A healthy, well-nourished lawn is your best course of action against weeds and pests, but you may still have to deal with weeds like dandelion, lambs quarters, bindweed, and thistle (among others). Because every weed has a unique growing season, we offer weed control for the yard invaders that grow in Colorado year-round.

In addition to preventing weeds from taking over your yard, part of our comprehensive plan for maintaining your lawn includes eliminating pests and invaders like:

  • Mites - That will leave your grass hard and brittle.
  • Grubs - Create unsightly brown patches in your yard.
  • Billbugs - Can cause yellow edges along walkways and driveways.
  • Fungus - This spreads damage in many forms from slimy-looking grass blades to large dead patches in your yard.

Our trained professionals specialize in preventing and eliminating anything that might interfere with the beauty and enjoyment of your lawn. Call us at (303) 915-8978 to begin your fertilization and weed control services.
