Fungicide Prevention Program
The Fungicide Prevention Program consists of ( 3 ) applications of granular fungicide. Headway G is the primary fungicide used during the program to prevent diseases. The applications are spaced 21-28 days apart starting when weather conditions become favorable for disease activity. The prevention program warranties your lawn from becoming terminal due to disease activity. If your grass dies as a result of disease, we will fix it in the fall at no cost.
Lime and Iron Treatment
Lime and Iron treatments are excellent for low pH soils where constant moss is present. As part of our fertilization program we routinely apply lime and iron to the lawn in order prevent the pH levels from dropping. But in order to start raising low pH levels closer to neutral conditions- sometimes heavy supplements become necessary. Oak and pine trees are notorious for contributing to low pH levels. Doing yearly treatments will eventually get the lawn to a neutral pH which is much easier to maintain.
Iron is a micronutrient that allows the grass tissues to store more chlorophyll cells, which gives the lawn a darker green appearance. This is great for getting a lawn to really show off. This is a quick release effect which means the effects will last for a few of weeks.
Compost Topdressing during Aeration and Overseeding
St. Louis soil is abundant in heavy clay, and over time the amount of healthy soil and available nutrients for grass roots to grow becomes depleted. Topdressing your lawn with organic compost is one of the most environmentally friendly ways to replenish the health of your lawn.
Core aeration removes plugs from the soil to alleviate compaction, allowing grass roots to breathe. We core aerate your lawn corner to corner to give uniform results. After aeration the lawn is overseeded with Winning Colors Fescue.
Lawn System’s technique of combining compost topdressing with the core aeration process has yielded excellent results. After the lawn is core aerated, the compost is worked over the soil surface into the aeration holes to restructure the composition of the soil. Our compost comes from St. Louis Composting and is completely organic. Compost also provides a perfect media for grass seed to germinate, and is a great solution to grow grass in difficult areas of your lawn.
