We help homeowners grow a thicker, greener lawn in Jefferson County and Burke County, GA.
Professionally applied fertilization, weed control, disease/insect control, and more!
At Nichols Lawn Care, we actively take part in providing lawn care from January through December, which covers all the basic necessities to ensure your lawn and landscape continue to thrive. Most homeowners in Jefferson County and Burke County, such as Louisville, Wrens, Waynesboro, and Wadley, forget about the care and health of the lawn, which includes:
- Weed control
- Disease control
- Insect control
Warm temperatures in Georgia mean year-long grass growth. Commercial fertilizers are specially formulated blends designed uniquely for your lawn. Our fertilizers are made up of a proper mixture of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium, which promote healthy lawn growth. This combination of balanced nutrients stimulates and feeds your lawn using the right proportions according to your soil's needs.
Georgia lawns require a fertilization schedule that is dependent upon the type of grass within the lawn. For example, Centipede grass does not require as much nitrogen as Bermuda or St. Augustine grass. Therefore, we find that the best approach is to cater our fertilization routine to the individual needs of your lawn.
We use a combination of pre-emergent and post-emergent weed killers as our primary weed control program. Pre-emergent weed killer prevents weed seeds from germinating and developing. Post-emergent helps fight pre-existing weeds. Throughout the year, a variety of common weeds plague our area including:
- Bur Weed
- Clover Weed
- Fairy Ring Fungus
- Slow Thistle
We apply weed control using a spray application across the lawn. We also spot treat weeds with a slow weed killer formula throughout the year.
Prevent diseases like Rhizoctonia from destroying your lawn! Although fungicides are not typically a part of our lawn care packages, we can apply them, as needed. Contact us at (478) 494-8123 if you feel that you may need this service.
The amount of damage from disease correlates to the weather in Georgia. Minimal damage is seen on lawns during dry seasons, while wetter seasons see a rise in lawn disease.
We create an individualized fungicide program to properly treat each customer's lawns. We use preventative and targeted treatments to gain control over the diseased areas and get your lawn in top-performing shape!
Pest control for your lawn and landscaping is imperative, because pests can damage and eventually kill your lawn. The main pest that attacks the Louisville, GA area is Chinch Bugs.
One example of an insect that is a nuisance and not actually one that could cause damage to your lawn is Fire Ants. If Fire Ants are invading your yard, we can offer solutions to solve your problem, while not causing any harm to your grass.
We use a variety of insecticides to treat the problems on your lawn. After a proper inspection, our lawn care specialists will choose the insecticide that best solves your insect infestation. The insecticide binds to the blades of the grass and creates a barrier that kills the existing pests while preventing new colonies from forming. Insecticides can last anywhere from a month to a year depending on the type.
Aerating is a process we perform using a tool that punches holes into the lawn. These holes allow nutrients, water, and oxygen to enter the soil and nurture the roots of your grass. Aeration loosens packed soil and helps your lawn breathe. This aids your turf in absorbing nutrients better, which results in a thicker and greener lawn. In Georgia, we perform aeration services for customers during the autumn months.
