Organic Lawn Care

Our Organic Turf Care Package is a 5-application program that does not utilize any controlled products. This program only utilizes premium, organic slow-release fertilizers. Here at The Turf Doctor Lawn & Pest Services, we know how important it is that our customers have an organic option when it comes to lawn care, which is why we offer this package! By incorporating a comprehensive soil test, this program focuses on strengthening both your soil and turf using only organic fertilizers and soil amendments. With this program, we strive for a healthier lawn and turf that are more resistant to insects and disease. 

Lawn Aeration and Renovation

Your lawn is a living and breathing organism—this means it needs the proper nutrients in order to grow and be the healthiest, most beautiful lawn it can be. Lawn aeration ensures your soil can absorb nutrients, water, and sunlight. With aeration, our lawn technicians use a mechanical aerator to pull out plugs of soil. Aeration is best completed in the spring or fall—anytime the soil is moist enough to move. We also provide lawn seeding in the fall to promote growth. We only use perennial grass seed selected for durability and beauty in our climate. 

Our lawn renovation program is more in-depth version of lawn aeration, and it includes:

  • Overlapping aeration multiple times, loosening the soil for optimal seed contact.
  • Lawn seeding in the fall. 
  • Raking the soil in order to improve the seed-to-soil contact.
  • Lawn fertilization, giving the newly planted seeds the best opportunity to thrive.

Grub Control

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 lawn feels spongy. If you suspect grubs, pull back the turf—if the lawn pulls up easily (almost like new sod), you may find white grubs in the top inch of the soil.

Signs of Grubs in Your Yard

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 lawn 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:

  • Year-long grub prevention, preventing existing grub eggs from hatching throughout the season. This is applied with our Early Spring Pre-Emergent Application.
  • Curative grub control for existing grubs. This can be applied any time throughout the year, and it may be repeated.

Weed Control

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.

The Most Common Weeds in Maine

While it can take up to an entire summer to fully eradicate weeds, The Turf Doctor guarantees results starting in a week. Our lawn 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:

  • Broadleaf—chickweeds, dandelions, spurges.
  • Grassy weeds—crabgrass and foxtails.
  • Nutsedge
  • And other undesirable grasses!

We’re so confident in the services our lawn technicians provide that we offer a no-nonsense guarantee: If you are not completely satisfied with our lawn care, let us know and we will come back to make it right!
