For the vast majority of homeowners, their yards are the largest part of their landscape. A healthy, verdant lawn provides a wonderful canvass and foreground for a decoration of trees, shrubs, and other ornamental plants, as well as enhances the appearance of the house. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it can have a substantial effect on property value. There are many who prefer to take care of their own lawns and landscapes. However, should you see properties that have been tended to by the staff here at Great Lakes Landcare Inc., you will see a clear difference between an amateur and a professional. Our affordable prices will make the result worth the money, and the time you will save in doing all of that yard work yourself.

Nowhere will you find a more nourishing program that is as effective in weed elimination. The lawn care program is a seven step process that begins around the end of March or as late as April, depending on the weather. We use a combination of liquid and granular fertilizer and weed control products, and only those that are proven effective. The first treatment is a granular crabgrass application, that we may stop that early grower before it starts. The next two treatments are a combination of liquid fertilizer and herbicide applications. We apply these liquid products manually, rather than adopting the riding equipment. The fourth visit is granular fertilization, and spot treatments of weeds, as the majority of early starting species will have been eliminated. The fifth consists of liquid fertilization, along with a new solution of herbicide to prevent different species of weeds that tend to become more active in warmer weather. The last two are a balance between fertilizers and winterization products to make sure pests do not take root when the next year rolls around. While your lawn's health is the most essential component to having it look spectacular to the eye, it also must be maintained, as good textured hair must be neatly clipped and combed. Our staff can provide the most professional looking mowing job, complete with edging and blowing away of all of the stray clippings. We will mow it to the correct height to promote optimal growth.
