Fertilizing & Weed Control
If your lawn, trees and plants are experiencing discoloration, slow growth or weed and pest infestations, fertilization and weed control will most likely help. Groundshog Lawn and Landscaping offer fertilizing and weed control as part of landscaping management for customers in Catonsville, Arbutus, Ellicott City, and Baltimore, Maryland.
Mulching for Natural Fertilizing and Lawn Weed Control
Regular lawn mowing and mulching of grass clippings back into the soil is an excellent way to provide natural lawn fertilization and lawn weed control. As the clippings are absorbed back into the soil, the grass roots soak up the nutrients for improved health and growth. As weeds tend to sprout higher and faster than grass plants, regular mowing and maintaining a proper grass height will help eliminate unwanted weeds such as dandelions and crab grass.
Fertilizing for Lawns
In addition to natural fertilization through lawn clippings, Groundshog Lawn and Landscape offers additional natural and chemical treatments to improve your grass health and increase growth. Nitrogen, which is occurs naturally in soil, is an essential nutrient for lawns. Applying too much nitrogen can cause grass shoots to continue growing while root growth slows, leading to erosion and other problems. For this reason, we take careful soil health measurements and ensure proper distribution of all fertilizer applications.
Fertilizing for Trees, Shrubs and Perennials
Trees, shrubs and perennials all have unique needs for fertilization. Our extensive horticultural knowledge helps our team determine the nutrients and fertilizer best suited for every one of your plants, as well as the preferred method for applying for the best results.
Weed Control for Lawns, Mulch Beds Trees, Shrubs and Perennials
Preventing weeds from taking over mulch beds, lawns, and gardens can be accomplished through a variety of methods, but the most important aspect is regular maintenance. Removing weeds manually, before they spread and become a major concern is a good first step, but applying weed control chemicals is often necessary to completely eliminate the problem. We use safe but effective weed control treatments that won’t adversely affect your plants and lawn, and won’t put your family and pets at risk.
