Lawn Care Program

Our year-round Lawn Care Program is custom designed for the Northern Virginia climate and soil conditions. We created a hybrid program using environmentally friendly organics to ensure your lawn receives the nutrients it needs at the precise time it needs them. Our Licensed Technicians apply only the highest quality fertilizers and weed control products to cultivate and maintain a healthy, lush, weed-free lawn.

Our Lawn Care Program includes the following treatments:

  • Fertilizer
  • Pre-Emergent Crabgrass Control: Prevents crabgrass from taking root and multiplying in your lawn. 
  • Broadleaf Weed Control: Attacks and eliminates all broadleaf weeds.
  • Grub & Insect Control: Controls and eliminates insects and grubs that can cause harmful disease and damage your lawn.
  • Soil Testing
  • Limestone: Achieves the proper acid-alkaline balance in your soil to promote a healthy, vigorous lawn.

Aeration & Overseeding

All year long, the steady treatments of the Lawn Care Program are designed to build up to the main event: Aeration & Overseeding. The optimal time to do this is late Summer through Fall. Core aeration helps relieve compacted soil and allows water, air and nutrients to reach the lawn’s root system. This is done by pulling small plugs up from your lawn with an aerator. Combined with the aeration, overseeding dramatically revitalizes your lawn. We special order the finest quality grass seed, engineered for the Northern Virginia climate.

Because these services are interdependent, Aeration & Overseeding is only offered together with the Lawn Care Program.

Preventative Fungicide Program

Sometimes a patchy or discolored lawn is a result of disease, which can spread under certain conditions. Our Licensed Technicians can apply Preventative Fungicide treatments for lawns that are susceptible to disease. For best results, these treatments are applied in the Spring and Summer months during our routine Lawn Care Program visits. Ask your estimator about adding this service during your consultation.

Wiregrass Suppression Program

In Northern Virginia, wiregrass is an invasive, unsightly weed that can appear just about anywhere. To control it, our Licensed Technicians can apply Wiregrass Suppression treatments to problem areas. For best results, your lawn should be watered regularly. These treatments are applied in the late Spring and Summer months during our routine Lawn Care Program visits. Ask your estimator about adding this service during your consultation.

“We contracted with Independence for our lawn mowing, fertilizing and seeding last year, also leaf removal. Andrew Meiser was the contact manager and he was great to work with, came out several times to make sure everything was going well. The office always responded quickly. Our lawn and edging always looked beautiful. … After the great lawn care program (last year), the grass is coming in thick and really nice this year which is just what we were hoping for!”
