Sustainable Fertilizing for Lawn Care

Fertilizing Program

Thank you for sharing this excitement with us as we lead the way to a greener, more responsible planet!

At 855RILAWNS, it has always been our goal to provide sustainable, low-maintenance, and environmentally-friendly landscapes to our customers in Rhode Island with our RI Organic-based Fertilizing Program.

As part of this goal, we have made the decision to drastically reduce and eliminate the use of pesticides and chemicals through Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and sustainable lawn care practices.

Our current fertilizer program is one simple, organic-based package, with optional upgrades of annual lawn aeration & overseeding, hydro-seeding, and sod installation for optimal results. We are proud to offer our clients such a unique, innovative and earth-conscious program.

Charlestown Recommended Landscaper

The town of Charlestown has problems with Nitrogen in their groundwater which has prompted them to start a program with local landscapers. Each year, 855RILAWNS attends their meetings and training to continue to work with the town to improve our RI Organic-based Fertilizing Program and lessen effects on the environment.

Our comprehensive, organic-based fertilizing program includes:

Hudson Valley Natural organic-based fertilizer products in a 6-step program. We are committed to providing sustainable, earth-friendly lawn care and these products contain powerful bio-stimulants to help keep your lawn strong, lush and healthy all season long.

Step 1: Early Spring Lawn Booster with Crabgrass Pre-Emergent– One visit to your property in the early spring (4/1-4/30) to apply organic-based fertilizer with crabgrass pre-emergent to help prevent crabgrass. This application will give your lawn the boost it needs to green-up and and recover naturally from winter dormancy. 

Step 2: Late Spring  Bio-Infused Fertilizer with Grub Control– One visit to your property in the late spring (5/1-6/15) to apply organic-based fertilizer with grub and insect control. This bio-infused fertilizer application will help to prepare your lawn for summer, while also preventing grubs and other surface and subsurface insects.

Step 3: Early Summer Lawn Booster with Crabgrass Pre-Emergent One visit to your property (6/16-7/15) to apply a balanced, organic-based fertilizer with crabgrass pre-emergent, to further prevent crabgrass and green-up your lawn before the summer.

Step 4: Summer Lawn Protection– One visit to your property (7/16-8/15) to apply a gentle, yet balanced, summer fertilizer. This organic-based, slow-release fertilizer application will provide your lawn with naturally-occurring key nutrients and minerals during the hot summer months. It will also aid in disease resistance and will help to protect your lawn from heat and drought damage.

Step 5: Fall Feeding & Lime Revival– One visit to your property (8/16-10/15) to apply an organic-based fall fertilizer and lime to your lawn. This application will give your lawn the strength it needs to recover from the summer heat, while also improving soil quality, pH and nutrient uptake.

Step 6: Winter Preparation Fertilizer– One visit to your property (10/16-11/15) to apply a winter fertilizer to your lawn. This slow-release, organic-based fertilizer application will prepare your lawn for winter. It will also provide your lawn with essential nutrients and minerals to ensure overall health, and improve hardiness and bounce-back in the spring.

Upgrade Your Lawn Care Package With These Additional Services:

To achieve optimal lawn results, we recommend upgrading your regular lawn care package with our lawn add-on services, listed below. You can request these services, in addition to our regular, organic-based lawn fertilization program.

  • Aeration & Overseeding to loosen thatch and reduce soil compaction, improving the flow of water and nutrients to the root zone. Overseeding will establish new growth (See details below).
  • Lawn Dethatching to remove excessive build-up of thatch, which will encourage new growth and allow nutrients to penetrate the soil.

Why Is Lawn Core Aeration so important to lawn health?

Core aeration is simply one of the best things you can do for your lawn. You can choose to upgrade your lawn care package with this service.

5 benefits to lawn aeration:

1) Reduces thatch build-up – A heavy thatch layer promotes disease and insects.

2) Reduces soil compaction – Compacted clay soils inhibit root growth and water penetration.

3) Stimulates new root growth – Root systems will grow back thicker, stronger, and deeper.

4) Creates more efficient watering and fertilizing – Water, air, and fertilizer can easily penetrate the soil.

5) Essential in keeping root systems strong and healthy -A healthy root system creates thicker turf, increases heat and drought tolerance, reduces weed and crabgrass growth, and decreases disease and insect damage.

Soil Testing

Unlike most lawn companies, soil testing is performed on your property when needed. This scientific analysis allows us to make sure we are applying exactly what your lawn needs- not too little, not too much!

We recommend a soil test and analysis, to identify what your soil is lacking, so we can remediate the issue for a healthier, more vibrant lawn.

We will send you the soil results and make recommendations, based on the test results.
