Traditional Fertilizer and Weed Control

Got weeds? If you're based in Cumming, Georgia, or surrounding areas, you need the Walkers Green, Inc.  7 (seven) application fertilizer and weed control program. We are experts when it comes to lawns, and there are several methods of weed control and lawn fertilization that we specialize in.

Our Preferred Methods

Large corporate turf care companies apply weed control and fertilizer in a liquid form to maximize the spray truck, while some smaller companies use only granular-based products for all applications which minimize the need for costly spray trucks. Both of these methods of application are driven by cost. At Walkers Green, we believe weed control should be applied with a liquid application. The liquid covers the area better and does a better job in weed prevention. At the same time, we believe granular fertilizers provide better controlled-release nutrients. By using a combination of liquid and granular products we are able to promote higher-quality and healthier lawns.

What is Core Aeration & What Will It Do for My Lawn?

Core Aeration is the removal of small plugs (cores) out of the lawn. The self-propelled machine removes 1/2" diameter cores of soil and deposits them onto your lawn. These plugs break down over a few weeks and the result is the top 2" to 2 1/2" of soil is loosened up, allowing roots to grow outward and deeper. Also, while the plugs break apart, they help to break down thatch and other debris that accumulates at the soil surface which interferes with fertilizer and preventive weed control intake. Core aeration helps your lawn by:

1. Increasing the amount of water, nutrients, and oxygen into the soil by loosening up compacted southeastern clay soils which will improve the depth, extensive, and deep of the turfs root system. The deeper and more extensive the grass root systems are, the thicker and healthier your lawn will be. A healthy lawn is able to better defend off disease and thrive during drought conditions.
2. Decreasing the amount of decomposed thatch. More than 1/2" of thatch is not recommended
3. Increasing infiltration of rainfall or irrigation water.
4. Decreasing the amount of fertilizer and weed control product runoff.

Recommended Schedule

We recommend core aeration once per year. Warm season grasses such as Bermuda, Zoysia, and Centipede, should be completed right when the grass is coming out of dormancy to about mid-July. With cool season grasses such as fescue, core aeration along with over seeding should be completed in the fall, from September to October. For more information, check out our maintenance programs.
