Is lawn fertilizer safe for pets?

We use a variety of products to cover client needs, and all of our lawn fertilizer is safe for your pets, children, and loved ones. From fast-acting products to get the problem under control to long-lasting organic approaches, our solutions cater to your needs and prioritize your safety.

Why are there so many weeds in my lawn?

Weeds are just like any other plant, so they grow along with other vegetation throughout your yard. As such, they need to be managed and maintained properly. When weeds take over your lawn and are not taken care of, there are a variety of consequences to consider.

Not only do weeds cause a visual disturbance to your lovely lawn, but they also compromise plant growth. Weeds take up space, nutrients, soil, and water that the other plants around your yard would otherwise use. Weeds will expose your plants and crops to pathogens, diseases, and dangerous insects. They can also block drainage pipes and interfere with effective lawn care practices.

What kind of weeds are typically in yards?

Some of the more common weeds found in yards include annual bluegrass, bermudagrass, burclover, crabgrass, nutsedge, starthistle, wisteria, and woodsorrel. The best way to protect your lawn and garden from invasive weeds is to rely on help from the experts at DeRosa Landscaping. We offer year-round weed control and lawn fertilization that you can depend on.

Does weed killer kill grass?

As mentioned previously, weeds are like any other plant. So, it begs the question, will the use of weed killer destroy the grass throughout your yard? It’s a valid concern, but the answer to that question is no. We use specific weed killers and herbicides that target the enzymes in weeds while leaving the enzymes in your grass alone.

Our low-impact treatments aim to cause as little disturbance to your lawn as possible. Not only do our treatments leave you with a healthier lawn and a more supportive habitat for your plants to live in, but our services increase the curb appeal of your property, making it more aesthetically pleasing. Our weed control and lawn fertilization solutions also mean less lawn mowing, giving you a reprieve from the stress of addressing lawn care so often.
