Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

At Alpine Landscape and Lawn Care, we have designed a program that uses granular slow release fertilizers to keep your lawn looking its best.
Your lawn specialist is the owner and has over 30 years of experience. Those years of experience help to implement spot treatments of weeds, which reduces the use of chemicals in the environment.
Having the training and emphasis to use integrated pest management is what makes our programs unique to the Fenton area.

Spring or Fall Core Aeration

Soil cores pulled on to the surface of the lawn will act as a top dressing. This topdressing helps microbes to break down thatch. The holes also help introduce oxygen to the soil and alleviate compaction in the lawn.

Some research has shown a 25% reduction of water use on lawns that have been aerated.

Seeding

There are many types of seeding, we are able to evaluate and make a recommendation based on your particular needs. Getting good soil contact and water are the most important needs. The right kind of follow up Fertilizer is what guarantees great results of seeding.

Season Long Mole Control Program

This program treats moles with a bait to kill them. If our technician sees mole activity at any time, they will treat at no charge.

Flea & Tick Control

Granular surface insect controls applied in areas that dog’s or cat’s occupy in your lawn to reduce these pests. Three visits a year will reduce these pest populations and prevent these annoying insects from attaching to your pest.

Bed Weed Control Program

This program reduces the weeds and grasses in your landscape mulch and stone beds. The program also reduces weeds and grasses in sidewalks, Curbs, and parking lots.

Perimeter Pest Control Program

Insecticides applied to the foundation of your home or business. Both liquid and granular insecticides applied ensure the reduction of most insect and spider pests. We commonly apply three visits a season to keep pests away.

Disease Control

we can diagnosis most turfgrass diseases and make a recommendation. We feel fungicides are a last resort to controlling diseases so we will recommend the use of cultural practices to control diseases. These cultural practices such as proper mowing, watering, fertilization, and core aeration.
