Lawn Care in Southeast Michigan

Our environmentally responsible, lake-safe Fertilization and Weed Control Program consists of 7 treatments applied at the perfect time during the growing season for optimal results. These 7 applications include:

  • Spring Starter - A dry granular spring feeding with lots of potash for spring root development that helps "wake up" turf from winter dormancy.
  • Late Spring Developer - A proven combination of the best dry and liquid fertilizers along with the best weed control for an awesome looking lawn along with non-staining crabgrass prevention.
  • Early Summer Beautifier - Our custom blended slow release formula will keep the lawn looking good, even under the harshest summer conditions. We’ll also take care of any unwanted weeds.
  • Summer Protection - This critical granular fertilizer application will continue to green and thicken your turf while protecting it from the summer heat, we spot treat those pesky summer weeds with this application.
  • Late Summer Defense - Cooler weather conditions allow us to apply a heavier feeding to your turf, which not only makes your lawn greener, it makes it stronger and more resilient.
  • Fall Feeding - This crucial treatment will help your lawn recover from the hot and dry Michigan Summer with a heavy feeding to develop the roots.
  • Turf Winterizer - If Michigan weather allows, this application allows the turf to store nutrients in the winter, which encourages root development and early green up the following year.

Aeration & Overseeding

Are you dreaming of a thick, lush lawn but all you see is thin, sparse grass?

Core Aeration & Overseeding in Southeast Michigan

When we overseed your lawn, we can help to fill in the bare spots and thin areas with a grass type that is better suited to your lawn and more resistant to common insects and diseases. Because the seed we use blends in well with common Michigan turf grasses and is spread throughout the lawn, this service can provide a more uniform-looking lawn as well.

Benefits of overseeding include:

Combining these two incredibly beneficial services gives you all the benefits of both services and makes seedings more effective. The holes left by core aeration mean better seed-to-soil contact, which means a higher germination rate and the thicker, healthier lawn you've been dreaming of. These services are often done together in the fall for optimal results. Our trained professionals can always answer your questions about aeration and overseeding.

To ensure sufficient seed germination we recommend watering the lawn 2-3 times per day during daylight hours for 10-15 minutes per zone.

Lawn Aeration

Lawn aeration, also called plug aeration or core aeration, is the process by which thousands of small cores of soil 1” to 3” in length are removed from your lawn. These cores naturally decompose and “melt” back into the lawn after a few rainfalls. The holes created by yard aeration catch water and fertilizer and help relieve some of the pressure from compacted soils. Core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn.

Overseeding

We recommend seeding in the fall.

When we overseed your lawn, we can help to fill in the bare spots and thin areas with a grass type that is better suited to your lawn and more resistant to common insects and diseases. Because the seed we use blends in well with common Michigan turf grasses and is spread throughout the lawn, this service can provide a more uniform-looking lawn as well.

Benefits of overseeding include:
  • Increased insect and disease resistant turf types
  • Bare spots and thin areas filled in
  • More uniform growth pattern in lawn

Grub Control

White grubs, which are the larvae of Japanese and other beetles, feed on the roots of your grass and cause extensive damage to your lawn. Then come the skunks and other critters for that all-they-can eat grub buffet, tearing up your lawn even more in the process. Don’t let this happen to you!

We offer a two-step program to treat and prevent grubs.

The first application is done if there are grubs already causing damage in your lawn (grub control).

The sooner you have this treatment done once you notice grub damage, the more it will limit and prevent further damage.

Follow this up with a preventative treatment (grub prevention) in the summer to keep your lawn grub free for the whole year.

This product stays in the root system to prevent the next life cycle of grubs. We recommend this treatment once per year to save you the time and money of repairing the damage to your lawn after grubs become a problem.

Disease Control

Go Green professionals are experts at diagnosing and treating the wide range of turf diseases that affect Michigan lawns.

As these diseases can have many and varied symptoms, Go Green’s professionals dig deep to determine the exact disease that has invaded your lawn.

Often, one or more diseases are present - and it takes the trained eye and diagnostic abilities of an experienced professional to tell the difference between diseases.

Once the disease or diseases are identified, a control product will be applied to the turf, ridding your lawn of the disease. The lawn can then regain its health and return to the green, lush lawn you desire.

If you suspect that your lawn has been invaded by a disease - or even if you’re seeing symptoms but are not sure - give Go Green a call. Our professionals will diagnose your problem and will prescribe the best treatment plan for your lawn.

Surface Insect Control

As with diseases in your lawn, insects can dramatically affect the health of your turf. Turf insects such as cutworms, chinch bugs and billbugs are just a few examples of insects that can cause great damage to your lawn.

Often, this damage occurs in incrementally - for example, after insects hatch and are eating aggressively - and so the damage can go unnoticed until it's too late.

Correctly identifying the insects responsible for the damage is critical to treating them. Go Green professionals are knowledgeable about the wide variety of insects who can invade your lawn. This is important to know, since most insects can only be treated effectively if the product is applied at the correct time in its lifecycle.

Go Green utilizes an Integrated Pest Management program to environmentally and effectively rid your lawn of harmful and damaging insects.

Call us today if you suspect that your lawn is experiencing damage from insects.
