Fertilization Programs

Optional Add-On Programs

None of these programs are required. However, Central MO Turf Management provides these optional programs as tools to assist in managing your lawn, landscape beds, trees, and other outdoor areas surrounding your home.

PRO 1 PROGRAM

This is Central MO Turf Management's basic Turf Management Program. It consists of five applications annually. Each application contains a "slow release" nitrogen, phosphate, and potash blend of high quality fertilizers designed specifically for the local turf area. The first application contains a very strong pre-emerge herbicide that will kill virtually all grassy weeds such as crabgrass for the entire season as seeds germinate,. The second application contains a systemic weed killer designed to kill broadleaf weeds with a previously established root system. The third application contains a high tech insecticide that gives season long control of harmful molting insects, such as White Grubs and Caterpillars that originate in your lawn. In early September, Central MO Turf Management will apply the fourth application of a balanced fertilizer designed to give your lawn a great look for the fall season. The fifth application in October also contains a balanced fertilizer application designed to carry your healthy lawn through the harsh winter months.  This is a great program for building and maintaining a very healthy lawn that is free of unwanted weeds and harmful insects.

PRO II PROGRAM

The PRO II PROGRAM is identical to the PRO I PROGRAM, except the insecticide control product is removed from the third application and a balanced fertilizer applied. This program is designed for those lawns that do not have chewing insect or mole problems. PS. - The Moles primary food source is Earthworms, but Grubs are its favorite meal.

PRO SUPREME PROGRAM (VERY BEST)

The Pro Supreme Program consists of each application described in the basic Pro 1 Program. In addition, Central MO Turf Management will apply multi-applications of a preventive fungicide in June, July, and August that will control virtually all fungus seen in this area under normal conditions. Central MO Turf Management will also include applications of high quality micronutrients designed to enhance the health, vigor, and beautiful rich color of your lawn. In addition, a member of our professional staff will systematically inspect your lawn for any unforeseen problems that might occur during the growing season. If your lawn has a potential fungus problem each year, this is a great program to consider. NOTE: In Missouri, it is virtually impossible to develop a "high class" lawn that will stand the test of time without an insect and fungicide program included in your lawn care management program. If you desire a great lawn, this is the best program for achieving your goal that can be found in the industry.

OPTIONAL ADD-ON PROGRAMS

Soil Testing -Central MO Turf Management will soil test your lawn and present you with a laboratory report detailing the fertility levels, pH level, and organic matter level of your soil. A Soil Test is the best tool available for determining deficiencies or other problems in your soil that can lead to a host of problems with your lawn. A member of our staff will explain your test results and make any necessary recommendations to correct deficiencies. Ideally, a Soil Test should be taken every one to two years. However, a test should be conducted at least every third year.

COST: $40.00 each


pH Correction -- Primary and Secondary Nutrients are most available at a pH level of 6.2 to 7.0. Fertilizer and chemical dollars are not wasted when the soil is in this pH range. Limestone will neutralize fertilizer and soil acidity, thereby releasing nutrients from the soil for plant use. Calcium, derived from limestone, is an essential nutrient for plant growth. Limestone also develops and maintains a desirable soil structure for turf growth. Proper pH levels in the soil also enhances soil activity of herbicides and insecticides.  Ideal pH level is the most important ingredient of a good lawn care program.

Organic Matter - Central MO Turf Management has been using an organic product on our lawns, landscape beds, and gardens for the past several years. The results have been "unbelievable". An application each spring and fall will bring dramatic positive results by the second year of application, especially if you have typically poor Jeff City or Lake Ozark soils. Lawns become thicker and more healthy, flowers and shrubs grow and prosper, and your garden will be more productive. A high percentage of Central MO Turf Management customers are currently using this product on their lawns and landscape beds.

Fungus Problem - - Is a fungus attacking your beautiful lawn. Are "circles" of dead grass (dollar spot or brown patch) appearing in your lawn? Is there a powdery substance (powdery mildew) appearing on the leaves of your grass or plants. Give us a call quick if you suspect a fungus problem! The earlier we can identify and treat a fungus problem, the better the chance of recovery. Central MO Turf Management can spray your problem areas with a "curative fungicide" to kill your fungus problem before it kills large areas of your grass or plants.

COST: Determined by size of area to be treated. Please call Central MO Turf Management for a quote.


Nutsedge Spraying - There are a few weeds such as Nutsedge that are resistant to pre-emerge herbicides, systemic weed killers, and can only be controlled effectively when sprayed with a "contact weed killer" after it has germinated. Nutsedge can only be controlled with one chemical herbicide that only kills Nutsedge and nothing else. If Nutsedge appears in your lawn, Central MO Turf Management can kill it with a selective contact herbicide. Nutsedge is a light green, weed-like grass with a triangle shaped stock that grows faster and taller than the other grass in your lawn.

COST: Due to the nature of Nutsedge, spray applications will be in addition to the annual programs and cost will be determined by the the amount of spray necessary to kill the infestation.  $35.00 per gallon sprayed.


Exterior Pest Program - Are chiggers and ticks a problem for you and your pets? Central MO Turf Management can control these annoying pests in your yard each summer. Just give us a call! Multiple applications may be necessary.

Tree Problems - Are insects or disease attacking your beautiful trees? Give Central MO Turf Management a call and let our Tree Specialist help solve your problems. Many diseases can be eliminated if treated early. Insects such as Tent Caterpillars, Bagworms, and boring insects can kill, or severely weaken a tree if left untreated. Fungus and Scale are serious disease problems and can weaken or kill the tree if not treated.

COST: Determined by the size of tree, number of trees to be treated, and problem being solved. Please call for a quote.


Insect Problems - Is there a problem with "moving or marching" insects in your area such as the famous Grasshopper and Army Worm invasions that have the potential to be very destructive. Central MO Turf Management can eliminate these pests with a surface applied insecticide that will not only kill insects, but give residual action as well. If you see any indication of these insects in your lawn, call Central MO Turf Management immediately.

COST: Determined by size of area to be treated. 


Compacted Soil - Do you have an area of your lawn with very hard (clay) soil that will not absorb moisture, causing your grass to die or become very thin each summer? Central MO Turf Management has a program designed to loosen the soil chemically and allow moisture and the roots of your grass to penetrate the profile.

COST: Determined by size of area to be treated. Please call Central MO Turf Management for a quote.

COST: Determined by the time to complete the job.


Aeration and Thatch Removal - Aeration allows air and moisture to penetrate the soil more easily. Dethatching removes decaying leaves and grass clippings before they can build up and smother the grass or become a home for fungus growth. Dethatching should be done on an "as needed" basis when the thatch exceeds one-half inch. Aeration is recommended every one to three years depending on soil type and lawn use.

COST: Determined by size of lawn.


Mulch Landscape Beds - Central MO Turf Management can clean and dress up your landscape beds with new mulch in the early spring.

COST: Determined by cost of mulch and labor necessary to complete the job.
