Our 8 Round Lawn Care Program

At Defense Pest Control, we offer an 8-Round Lawn Care Program that is designed to keep your lawn healthy and vibrant throughout the year. Our program consists of eight scheduled treatments that target specific lawn care needs at different times of the year.

  • Round 1 - February: We kick things off with pre-emergent weed prevention and post-emergent weed control. At this time of year, many weeds are just starting to appear. Our pre-emergent treatments are applied to stop them in their tracks, while our post-emergent treatments are there to deal with any weeds that have already popped up. This combination ensures your lawn stays weed-free, setting the stage for a lush, green spring.
  • Round 2 - March and April: We continue with our pre-emergent weed prevention and post-emergent weed control services. This round is crucial as it further strengthens your lawn, ensuring the spring growth is strong and vibrant. The weather starts to warm up during this time, and the weeds try their best to take over. But don't worry, we're on the job, keeping them under control.
  • Round 3 - May: We introduce the fertilizer application alongside our ongoing post-emergent weed control. This fertilizer gives your lawn the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and lush throughout the summer. It's like multivitamins for your lawn! Our post-emergent weed control keeps those pesky weeds at bay, ensuring they don't take any nutrients away from your grass.
  • Round 4 - June: We apply iron and post-emergent weed control to your lawn. Iron is essential for your lawn to maintain that beautiful, deep green color that is the envy of every neighbor. And, of course, we continue to keep the weeds at bay so your lawn remains the star of the show.
  • Round 5 - July: We will return to our fertilizer application and continue with post-emergent weed control. The hot summer days can be harsh on your lawn, but our fertilizer keeps it strong and resilient. Our ongoing weed control lets you relax and enjoy your summer without worrying about your lawn.
  • Round 6 - September: We start Round 6 with pre-emergent weed prevention, post-emergent weed control, and fertilizer or iron as needed. This time is crucial as we prepare your lawn to transition from summer to fall. Our treatments ensure your lawn stays strong as the weather starts to cool.
  • Round 7 - October: We focus heavily on pre-emergent weed prevention. This is an essential step in preparing your lawn for winter. Weeds love to sneak up in the spring, so we take preventative measures now to ensure your lawn will be ready for the new growth when the weather warms up again.
  • Round 8 - December: This is all about winter weed control. Even though it's cold and the grass isn't growing much, weeds are still a concern. Our winter weed control service ensures your lawn stays healthy and ready for the upcoming year.

Pre and Post Emergent Weed Control

Weed control is a vital component of any lawn care program. At Defense Pest Control, we offer both pre and post-emergent weed control treatments to keep your lawn free from unsightly and invasive weeds.

Pre-emergent weed control focuses on preventing weeds from germinating in the first place. Our technicians will apply a pre-emergent herbicide before the growing season begins to create a barrier that inhibits weed growth. This treatment is effective against annual grassy weeds, such as crabgrass and foxtail.

Post-emergent weed control targets weeds that have already sprouted and are actively growing in your lawn. Our technicians will apply a selective herbicide that specifically targets broadleaf weeds, like dandelions and clover, while leaving your grass unharmed. This treatment is done as needed throughout the year to address any weed issues that may arise.

Lawn Fertilization

Lawn fertilization is the process of applying nutrients to your lawn in order to promote healthy growth and overall vitality. Fertilizers contain essential elements such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium that are necessary for strong root development, lush green color, and resistance to pests and diseases.

Fertilizing your lawn is important for several reasons. First, it helps to replenish the nutrients that may be lacking in your soil. This is especially important in Alabama, where the soil can be nutrient-poor. By fertilizing regularly, you can ensure that your lawn has access to the nutrients it needs to thrive.

Second, lawn fertilization can help to improve the overall appearance of your lawn. Fertilizer provides the necessary nutrients for your grass to grow thick and healthy, resulting in a lush green lawn that is visually appealing.

Lastly, fertilizing your lawn can help to prevent and control pests and diseases. A well-nourished lawn is more resilient and less susceptible to damage from pests like grubs and diseases like brown patch. By providing your lawn with the nutrients it needs, you can strengthen its defenses against these common issues.
