Summer brings out the best in your lawn — and also the worst. It’s a time for warm, balmy days and nights, enjoying the outdoors and sometimes searing heat. All this means that a green, growing lawn is exactly what you want for entertaining and simply to enjoy looking at. On the other hand, summer’s warm weather and high-traffic outside activities can also stress your lawn. Warm weather brings out the bugs, which can damage your lawn right down to its roots. Though warmth helps your grass grow, it also invigorates your grass’s greatest enemies and competitors — weeds. Summer get-togethers meanwhile bring out neighbors, friends and family who can trample and damage your lawn, especially in high-use areas.
Because it’s summertime, you want to relax. You want all the natural beauty a well-kept lawn can give to you, your neighbors and your guests. FitTurf.com has a solution.

To kick off the summer, in May and June, FitTurf.com’s trained staff will visit you, inspect your grounds and discuss with you any problems, concerns and specific needs. Typically, this is a time that our knowledgeable staff will apply slow-release fertilizer to feed and nourish your lawn over the long, hot summer. Depending on your specific circumstances, the staff will spot-feed or deliver a general application to your entire lawn. We’ll also rid your lawn of ugly spots of crabgrass on an as-needed basis. Of course, our experts will also make sure your lawn is absolutely free of surface damaging insects — absolutely free of charge.
