Our certified team at Pro Lawn Plus in Jacksonville, FL, specializes in weed control. Weeds are fast-growing plants that we don't want in our landscape. If they show up in the lawn they use more than their share of nutrients and water. Thousands of weed seeds lie dormant in the soil waiting for the right opportunity to start growing. New seeds settle in the soil all the time, being blown in either by the wind or carried in by birds or other animals. Although no lawn can be weed free all the time, we at Pro Lawn Plus are able to help control your weeds so they will not steal nutrients and water from your grass and plants. There are different types of weeds, broadleaf and grassy.

Another one of the most important aspects of lawn care is fertilization. Without fertilizers your lawn would not be able to thrive as well. At Pro Lawn Plus in Jacksonville, FL, we know fertilizing and how to help make your lawn beautiful again. Fertilizer is a common term that describes a group of elements that grass plants require to grow. The main ingredients of fertilizer are nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. There are also many other trace elements important for proper growth and strong root development. Even though many nutrients are found in the soil naturally, the most essential nutrients for growth are depleted quickly making fertilizer necessary. In time, these deficiencies begin showing results in thinning lawns of poor color and an increase in weeds, insect infestations, and possible diseases. A regular feeding program based on your grass type, the type of soil, and weather conditions is required to maintain a beautiful, healthy lawn. Fertilizing is important. Selecting the correct feeding times means diagnosing your lawns current condition and anticipating its needs in the future seasons is important to develop a timetable for your lawn's nutrition. We provide your lawn with a balanced diet of nutrients and important elements designed to gradually feed your long over a long period of time. Too much fertilizer can cause rapid growth and a weaker plant. There are even some grass types that can be damaged by too much fertilizer. One of our key products is Physiocal. Physiocal contains a Natural Calcified Seaweed. It is five times more soluble and four times more available than other liming materials. Fluid lime is a term that is generally used to describe the concept of suspending liming materials of various types in either water or fertilizer solutions.
