Leisure Lawn's dry lawn care program is designed to strengthen and develop the root system of your lawn while continually building your soil's nutrient stores. And our two-step application feeds your lawn and controls your weeds separately. The result? A greener, healthier lawn.
Turf aeration used to be a well kept secret. For years, golf course greens keepers were able to keep their courses in beautiful "tip top" playing condition by aerating two or three times a year.
As a homeowner, power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aerating your lawn will help control thatch, improve the soil structure, help create growth pockets for new roots, open the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn, and ultimately save you from spending on costly lawn renovation.
Caused by poor drainage and poor topsoil, soils with a high percentage of clay will become hard and compacted over time. Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns on heavy clay soils, those with a moderate thatch build-up, and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up". Aeration restores air and water penetration on tight compacted soils enabling your lawn to breathe again!
Grubs - white, C-shaped larvae - are the developmental form of a wide variety of adult beetles (May, June, Japanese, etc.). These troublesome pests are often found in the soil feeding heavily on your lawn's roots in the spring, late summer and early fall. Spring damage is usually not a major concern because spring rains can mask any damage made by grubs at this time. However, late summer and fall is when the majority of damage will show-specifically yellowing and brown areas that appear in large irregular patches. Because grubs feed on the root system, these patches will pull up easily and may roll up like carpeting. If left alone, these grubs can create considerable damage in a short period of time. Let us prevent these unwelcome dinner guests from causing severe damage and turf loss on your lawn!
Leisure Lawn will select cost-effective solutions to help protect your lawn and help prevent damage from occurring. Because grubs feed out-of-sight, by the time damage is evident, it may be too late. The best solution for grubs is to ensure they can't do damage in the first place. This is accomplished by applying a product to your lawn in late spring and summer before damage can take place. This product is a preventative insecticide, which means it must be applied prior to their major feeding activity. Leisure Lawn has applied grub control to thousands of area lawns with virtually no grub damage occurring on treated lawns, thus possibly saving our customers thousands of dollars in turf renovation.

Every Landscape Consultant is highly trained to recognize potential and existing pest problems. Although some feeding insects are not damaging to healthy plants, your Landscape Consultant will work to control harmful pests.
Your Landscape Consultant can also help identify diseases that aren’t always easy to spot. Diseases that would otherwise damage the plant, and spread to neighboring foliage. Many are controllable through our program.

Overwintering Insect Control
The topical spray application of superior horticultural spray oil helps control overwintering eggs and immature and adult insects by interfering fatally with their metabolism.
Our own custom blend of essential nutrients is power injected or drenched into the root system. Our fertilizer will feature both immediate release and slow release nitrogen for enhanced color, improved leaf size and thickness, while stimulating overall growth.
Early Growth Protection
Insect control sprays during this time target insects such as tent caterpillars, aphids, leaf miners, and scale. Disease control is aimed at minimizing active leaf spotting diseases, scabs and rust. Micronutrients are applied as necessary to provide healthy coloration.
Mid-Season Growth Protection
Control sprays target lace bugs, aphids, Japanese beetles as well as other sucking and chewing insects. Disease control is aimed at minimizing active leaf spotting diseases and rusts. Micronutrients as needed.
Mature Foliage Protection
Insect control sprays target leaf beetles, mites, aphids, and Japanese beetles. Disease control as needed. Micronutrients as needed.
Late Season Foliage Insect Protection
Spider mites and foliage feeding insects such as webworms and aphids are targets for this foliage spray application. Micronutrients as needed.
Deep Root Fertilization
Deep root fertilization is an essential application that provides fast and slow release nitrogren, phosphorus, potassium, and iron to encourage fall root growth and storage of food for the winter, fueling the first spring flush of growth. Micronutrients as needed. Phosphorus aids root development, plus helps flowing and fruit potential.
Spring Fertilization - Nutrients are power injected into the root zone for enhanced color, growth, and flowering potential.
Early Growth Protection - Insect and disease controls are sprayed directly onto foliage to minimize damage.
Target Plant Protection - Control sprays targeted for certain plants and pest problems. Timing will be specific to pest problems.
Mid-Season Foliage Spray - This is the most effective application for controlling sucking insects. Continued disease controls are also included, as needed.
Late Season Foliage Spray - Spider mites and foliage feeding insects such as webworms and aphids are the targets for this foliage spray application. Micronutrients as needed.
Root Zone Fertilization - Root zone fertilization is an essential application that provides necessary nutrients to encourage fall root growth and to prepare plants for winter and spring growth.
Dormant Oil - A special application of horticultural oil to help control certain difficult insects in their overwintering stages, before damage occurs.
