Lawn Fertilization and Weed Control: The Staple of Our Lawn Care Program

With proper lawn fertilization during the year, you can rest assured that your turf will have the right nutrients not just to grow, but to thrive. And knowing when to fertilize lawns in Michigan is extremely important. 

We offer a 7-step lawn fertilization plan that provides two benefits. First, our applications are carefully designed to give your Southeast Michigan lawn the right amount of nutrients at the perfect time. 

The second part of our lawn care program is weed control, which is included with each application of fertilizer. 

But it's also important to know when to fertilize lawns in Michigan. Timing is everything and Lush Lawn has it down to a science. So, let's break down our step-by-step lawn fertilization program.

When To Fertilize Lawns In Michigan 

Round 1 - Early Spring

Our March/April application features an all-granular time-released lawn fertilizer with crabgrass pre-emergent. This application serves two major purposes: 

  1. It infuses your soil and root system with vital nutrients to help your lawn recover from dormancy at maximum health. 
  2. It introduces a pre-emergent into the soil to prevent the growth of crabgrass. 

This application may contain a liquid lawn fertilizer with blanket weed control, depending on the temperature.

Round 2 - Late Spring 

This fertilization treatment is applied in May. It contains a nitrogen-rich all-granular fertilizer and liquid blanket weed control. 

The application is designed to ensure your ​grass doesn’t run out of essential nutrients during a time of explosive growth and to remove any newly germinated weeds throughout the property. 

You may elect to substitute the crabgrass pre-emergent treatment in place of the nitrogen-rich fertilizer.

Round 3 - Early Summer  

This application will be applied in June. It will give your lawn that deep green color. It’s all-granular, time-released lawn fertilizer and liquid weed control. 

The goal is to reintroduce nutrients to maintain healthy growth as the seasons move from spring to summer. It also provides our technician an opportunity to treat for remaining weeds and diagnose any issues that may be present in your lawn.

Round 4 - Mid-Summer 

This application re-introduces nutrients to maintain healthy growth during the hottest summer months. This application is done in July. It continues a time-released, all granular fertilizer and weed ​killer.

Our technician will also treat any remaining weeds while on site.

Round 5 - Late Summer 

This application is done in August and re-introduces nutrients to maintain healthy growth toward the end of summer.

Round 6 - Early Fall

In the fall we’re thinking about stimulating root growth and adding a blanket of weed control. So, in September we apply a time-released, all granular fertilizer that features a robust infusion of nutrients.

This helps maintain healthy growth throughout the fall growing season. Your technician will also make sure there aren’t any undiagnosed issues present in your ​turf.

Round 7 - Late Fall

The final lawn care treatment is done in October. Our all-granular fertilizer contains a blend of macronutrients to get your lawn ready for winter. 

Our winterizer also helps reduce the chances of snow mold developing in the spring. 

Lush Lawn provides a variety of lawn care services for your yard’s every health need.

We won’t be happy until you have a ​yard that’s lush, green, and weed-free!
