Kelly Kare Lawn Maintenance, Inc. offers an Organic Lawn Fertilizer program for residential customer in the Fox cities, (Batavia, Geneva, St Charles, North Aurora), and surrounding communities. Our 5 Step Organic Lawn Fertilizer program follows the following application schedule.

 

  • Step #1 – Early Spring (Mid March – Early April). Time-release organic fertilizer to improve color and density of the turf to prepare for summer stress and promote root growth after Spring Lawn Aeration. Spraying of weeds. Weed treatment repeated in 3 to 4 weeks for best results.
  • Step #2 – Spring (Mid March – Late May). Spring Lawn aeration to improve air exchange between the soil and atmosphere, soil water uptake, promote deeper root growth, reduce soil compaction and enhance the natural process of thatch breakdown.
  • Step #3 – Late Summer (September). Time-release organic fertilizer to improve color and density of the turf to enhance turf after summer stress and promote root growth for Fall Lawn Aeration.
  • Step #4 – Late Summer/Late Fall (September – October). Fall Lawn aeration to improve air exchange between the soil and atmosphere, soil water uptake, promote deeper root growth, reduce soil compaction and enhance the natural process of thatch breakdown and the preparation for the winter dormancy. Spraying of weeds. Weed treatment repeated in 3 to 4 weeks for best results.
  • Step #5 – Late Fall (Late October – Early November). Time released organic fertilizer to prepare for winter, which is very important for survival of harsh winters and provides for an early spring green up.

 

Fertilizer product:

 

Our organic fertilize get its plant nutrients derived from Poultry Manure and Biosolids.  This product can be applied to any type of grass with no risk of burn when used as directed. It can be applied anytime during the growing season and applications must adhere to seasonal restrictions. For cool season grasses it should only be applied in the spring and twice during the fall.

 

Weed Control:

 

Weed control is the greatest challenge with an organic fertilizer program.  Non-synthetic weed control products can be very affective when used properly and applied under the correct conditions.  We will use the following product for our weed control portion of the program.

 

Fiesta® Turf Weed Killer is a selective, broadleaf weed killer that leaves turf healthy and weed-free using a patented formulated iron chelate solution that even controls moss and algae. Fiesta works quickly, delivering visible same-day results, even in cool weather, and has no unpleasant odor during or after application. People and pets can re-enter the treated area once the spray is dry to avoid staining.

How Does Fiesta Work?
