3 APPS OF FERTILIZER & 3 APPS. OF WEED CONTROL
Our most complete program is custom tailored to our Manitoba season. We apply premium fertilizers throughout the growing season and end it with a fall fertilizer. Our premium fertilizers will give your lawn a deep luxurious dark green colour. Our fertilizer is temperature-controlled release and is not affected by rainfall or irrigation, which eliminates growth flushes that occur when nitrogen releases. Our blanketing application of FIESTA™ for weed control also contributes to the greening of your lawn due to the iron components of this product. We top off the end of the season with a fall fertilization.

Our starter pack is designed to quickly green up your lawn after our first spring visit. Along with an initial application of superior grade, slow-release granular fertilizer, TWO full-coverage applications of FIESTA™ weed control will be applied within 21 - 30 days of each other to maximize the effectiveness of the product and greatly reduce or eliminate weeds. The result is in a lush and healthy looking lawn.

WHY DO WE USE GRANULAR FERTILIZER
Lawn Boys only uses premium granular slow-release fertilizer. No liquid fertilizer can compare to the quality of fertilizer we use. Our fertilizer is temperature-controlled release and is not affected by rainfall or irrigation, which eliminates growth flushes that occur when nitrogen releases. This fertilizer will also not burn your lawn, like liquid has the tendency to do. Our summer fertilizer feeds the lawn for up to 12 weeks, and is much more environmentally friendly and has no nutrient leaching or volatility.
FIESTA™ is a low risk broadleaf weed killer used to replace the low cost Par 3. The Manitoba Provincial Government has decided to ban chemical applications (such as Par 3) for cosmetic purposes on residential lawns. The active ingredient in FIESTA™ is Iron and is naturally derived. It is bound to a chelating agent that keeps the Iron soluble. Broadleaf weeds absorb iron much quicker than grass does leading to plant death very quickly. When applied to grass, iron generates a strong, deep green colour by helping the grass break down and utilize the nitrogen quickly and abundantly. Research at the Guelph Turf grass Institute has shown that three blanket applications of FIESTA™, three weeks apart results in turf that is 95% weed free.

WHY GET A CORE AERATION
Creates a stronger root system
Makes it difficult for weeds to grow
We strongly recommend annual core aeration. This process helps your lawn breathe easier, promotes root growth and allows water and nutrients to penetrate more easily and controls thatch. Healthy turf has healthy roots. However, good root growth cannot be achieved in compacted soil. Core aeration extracts small cores of soil and thatch from your root zone to promote deeper, stronger roots and a thicker healthier lawn. A thick, healthy lawn makes it difficult for weeds to grow.
A Lawn Boys lawn that has been treated with fertilizer and aerated will create a thick healthy turf that will not allow weeds and insects to survive in. At every visit we will check for pests and treat them if necessary.
