These nuisance pests feed on the roots of plants, damaging the health of your lawn. Populations can develop to high numbers very quickly. Our Grub Control application provides long-lasting control with guaranteed results.

Ticks pose a danger to you and your family. They carry, among other diseases, Lyme. Ticks like cooler, shaded areas, such as tall grass and leaf litter. You should perform a tick check every time you come in contact with thick vegetation. A tick check is running your hands over your body to check for small bumps. (Tick pupae are the size of a poppy seed and hardly visible to the naked eye.)

No one wants to deal with fleas. These pests can lay dormant in the soil for up to 100 days before sensing a host is nearby and springing into action!

Bermuda Control Program

Bermuda Grass is a warm season turfgrass primarily known for its dense growth, tolerance of low mowing and ability to quickly recover from damage. Due to many of these benefits it has been frequently used as Athletic turf in Maryland. Bermuda Athletic fields are easily spotted for their blue/green color and coarse texture that is very different from lawns in our area. The maintenance of Bermuda Fields is usually extensive requiring consecutive fertilizer applications and special treatments to maintain its health and vigor.

In Maryland, Bermuda grass is first noticed for its brown color in the winter months. It has become common in residential lawns, commercial lawns, fields, and rights-of-ways. The spread of Bermuda grass is mostly attributed to seeds carried by wildlife or transported soil containing live roots or seed. The combination of the desirable turf and Bermuda becomes a battle of dominance in the lawn. Many people find the texture variation does not affect the appearance of the lawn. However, many feel the texture and color differences are unappealing and diminish the turf quality.

As Bermuda Grass is a turfgrass it has the same growth properties as other desirable turf grasses and cannot be treated with a selective weed control that will not also damage the desirable grass.

Common practice in past years would be to treat infested areas with a broad-spectrum herbicide (kills everything green) and strip the area of all surface grass. After this process, heavy re-seeding and compost would be required to start a new lawn. Unfortunately, this method is both labor intensive and costly. In addition, due to small root fibers surviving, the repaired areas would regrow Bermuda within two years requiring the entire process to start over! The high cost of repair and the need to repeat frustrated homeowners and prevented lawns from maturing to a point of developed roots and good density.

On The Green, Inc. has developed a process of utilizing a combination of selective herbicides and special oil additive when mixed together will “suppress” Bermuda Grass without causing stress to a Tall Fescue Lawn. The suppression is noted in initial bleaching and then die back of live plant tissue above the soil. This application requires four annual applications. One in spring and three during the active growth season. These applications have been found to be nearly 100% successful when continued every year. This service allows us to effectively remove Bermuda Grass from Tall Fescue lawns with minimal labor and long-lasting effects.

The result is a pure uniform Tall Fescue lawn.

Lawn Fertilization

The success of our fertilization program starts with a few key ingredients:

top-rated organic-based fertilizers, certified seed cultivars, and industry certified technicians.

Our fertilizer is designed to provide a slow-releasing and long-lasting source of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium to immediately increase the soil fertility for an extended period of time. Nitrogen promotes growth, Phosphorus promotes healthy roots, and Potassium helps build resistance to disease while promoting overall health. In addition to these macro-nutrients our products include essential micro-nutrients like magnesium.

  • Our five custom grass fertilization treatments guarantee the exact amount of needed nutrients for optimal results.
  • Every service we perform includes industry Top-Rated Products including poly-coated slow-release fertilizers, organics, and certified seed cultivars.
  • We are a Certified Pesticide and Professional Fertilizer Applicator by the Maryland Department of Agriculture.
  • All services and products are customized according to the latest recommendations of the University of Maryland IPM reports and seasonal weather patterns.

Weed Control

Our certified professionals will take the time to walk the property and treat weeds with each visit. Spot treatment with every service takes time and attention, however, it reduces the potential for weeds to spread and regenerate in future seasons. Our focus is to keep your lawn weed-free and guarantee success.
