Introduction to the Chatham Lawn Treatment (Centipede)A thriving turf consumes more nutrients from the soil than are naturally replenished. Regular lawn treatments are necessary to replenish these vital nutrients; maintain a healthy, robust turf; and to stay ahead of crabgrass and weeds.At Chatham Property Maintenance, we believe in treating customers the way we’d like to be treated! So, we won’t try to upsell you more lawn applications than you really need, and we won’t lock you into a contract that you can’t get out of. Our lawn treatment programs are designed to promote a healthy and attractive lawn. To accomplish this, we use the recommendations of the Universtiy of Georgia Research & Extension. Their decades of turf grass testing and research, provides an excellent, unbiased source of turf grass information specific to our area. Read on to learn about our Basic and Plus lawn treatment programs that include pre- and post-emergent weed control, in addition to proper fertilizing.
Chatham Basic Lawn Treatment Package
The 4 step is our standard lawn maintenance program. It provides all of the fertilizings recommended by the University of Georgia research and extension, as well as crabgrass pre-emergent and two broadleaf weed control treatments. With this program, the lawn is not treated during the hot, summer months; when the turf is stressed.
Chatham Plus Lawn Treatment Package
The 6 step is our premium lawn maintenance program. It provides six fertilizings, two crabgrass pre-emergent treatments, and four weed control treatments. This program is recommended for those who want a nice lawn all season long, and plan to water through the summer. Iron is applied in the summer for a green lawn without burning. This program includes yellow nutsedge control (known by many as water grass or nut grass). The Plus program is guaranteed, so we will re-treat if necessary.
These are some additional lawn treatments that we offer, on an as needed basis.
Season-Long Grub Worm Control: This is a preventative treatment for grub worms. The insecticide, applied early in the summer, is absorbed into the grass roots, providing season long protection. When the grubs feed on the roots, they ingest the poison and are killed before they can do much damage. (This treatment may also help to deter moles by taking away one of their favorite food sources).
24 Hour Grub Control: If a grub problem is discovered, this fast-acting treatment will stop the grubs, before they cause more damage to your lawn.
Crawling Insect Control: This treatment will control most crawling insect pests in your lawn including chiggers, spiders, ants (fire ants), beetles, cockroaches, bees, wasps, and more.
Yellow Nutsedge Control: Known by many as water grass or nut grass, yellow nutsedge is a common problem in Georgia lawns. It’s pale green to yellow in color and grows rapidly in the spring and early summer, often sticking up above the rest of the lawn only a few days after mowing. This treatment will take care of the problem!
Fungicide Treatment: Dollar Spot, Brown Spot, and other lawn fungus, can all be controlled with this lawn treatment.
Post-Emergent Crabgrass Control: Applying a pre-emergent herbicide for crabgrass in the early spring, is the best way to deal with this pesky weed grass. However, if you didn’t get the pre-emergent down, or some crabgrass came up anyway, we can spray a herbicide for post-emergent crabgrass control.
Starter Fertilizer: A well-balanced, slow-release fertilizer, recommended after seeding. If you let us know that you have over-seeded, we’ll substitute this treatment for your normal lawn application.
Soil Sampling: Soil Sample testing is recommended by Chatham Property Maintenance as part of our complete lawn treatment program. The test results help us determine what nutrients are lacking in your lawns soil, and allows us to match our fertilizer application to your lawn’s specific needs! Soil samples are tested through the University of Georgia Research & Extension Soil Testing Laboratory, and are recommended every 3 years.
With Chatham Property Maintenance, your lawn is in good hands. If we notice an issue with your lawn, we’ll bring it to your attention, and make recommendations. We also have the ability to take samples of a damaged area, and send them to the UGA research and extension for analysis.
*Average size lawn assumes 1/4 Acre of turf.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of having Chatham Property Maintenance treat my lawn, as opposed to doing it myself? Thanks for asking. There are many benefits to having us treat your lawn, compared with doing it yourself.
1.) Most homeowners programs use only grannular treatments. This is OK for fertilizing, but liquid applications are much more effective for weed control. Our program includes a combination of grannular and liquid applications. Post-emergent Weed contol is always applied as a liquid.
