Owned and operated by a former golf course superintendant, Grassmaster Plus's lawn whisperers lavish plant life with TLC. A five-step lawn-care program pampers greenswards with five applications of fertilizer and four applications of herbicide. A pre-emergent crabgrass treatment stunts weeds before they sprout. Then, a granular fertilizer feeds hungry grass roots a slow-release nitrogen buffet, endowing lawns with the nutrients they need to grow lush and full. Finally, an herbicidal spot treatment knocks out broadleaf weeds such as clover and dandelions. Spaced six weeks apart, treatments that begin now-ish will continue through the fall, ensuring that Turkey Claus will be impressed with your lawn's upkeep when he stops by to leave giblets and stuffing at your doorstep.
