Over the past 20 years, we have developed multiple programs that are fully customizable, based on your lawn, budget, and goals. When you sign up for one of our lawn care programs in Maine, you can rest assured that your lawn will receive everything it needs to remain healthy.
This package offers everything you need for a beautiful lawn regardless of its current condition. Our Platinum Care Package features proprietary custom blends of organic-based fertilizer. This custom organic-based fertilizer blend produces a beautiful, lush green turf while increasing the organic content in the soil. The improved soil profile provides a better base for consistent color, better disease resistance, stronger root system, and increased drought tolerance.
Our Platinum Care Package provides complete lawn care to make your lawn healthy, including:
Our Organic Turf Care Package is a 5-application program using no controlled products, only premium organic slow-release fertilizers. By incorporating a comprehensive soil test, this program was designed to strengthen not only the turf but the soil as well. Using only organic fertilizers and soil amendments, our goal is to fortify the turf to become more resistant to disease and insect invasion.
We designed this program for the busy family who is frequently using their lawns and don’t want to wonder if it is safe for their children or pets to go out on the lawn after we treated the property. On the first treatment of the year, we will make a custom liquid application that includes a slow-release fertilizer, selective broadleaf weed control, pre-emergent crabgrass reducer, and preventive grub control. This treatment, in essence, gets all the pests out of the way in one application. All remaining applications include premium organic fertilizer.
Your yard is a living and breathing organism—this means it needs the proper nutrients in order to grow and be the healthiest, most beautiful yard it can be. Lawn renovation ensures your soil can absorb nutrients, water, and sunlight.
Our lawn renovation program includes:
Beetle larva, more commonly known as grubs, are the white, C-shaped insects you may see in your yard. They live underground, so you may not know you have a grub infestation unless you see dead patches in your grass or your yard feels spongy. If you suspect grubs, pull back the turf—if the grass pulls up easily (almost like new sod), you may find white grubs in the top inch of the soil.
Grubs are more common in the mid-to-late summer months, as that's when most beetles lay their eggs. Keep an eye out for these pests in the fall and spring, as they return to the surface as it gets warmer outside to lay their own eggs. Another sign you may have grubs are moles, skunks, raccoons, or other wildlife creatures as they feast on grubs.
We offer two types of grub control services:
Tired of pulling weeds? Who isn't! With our weed control, known as our vegetation management program, The Turf Doctor can provide season-long control of unwanted grasses and weeds. This program is perfect for mulch beds, crushed stone walkways, driveways, cracks in asphalt and concrete, ditches, fence lines, patios, and sidewalks.
While it can take up to an entire summer to fully eradicate weeds, The Turf Doctor guarantees results starting in a week. Our technicians are highly trained and up-to-date on the latest treatments. We use pre-emergent weed control for grassy weeds and post-emergent weed control for broadleaf weeds.
Our weed control includes treatment for the following weeds and grasses:
