Have a Plan for Your Yard

When it comes to caring for your yard, having a plan will ensure that your grass receives the right nutrients and care at the right time resulting in a healthier and more attractive lawn. A lawncare plan allows you to stay on top of regular maintenance tasks such as mowing, fertilizing and watering, which can prevent problems such as weeds and pests from taking hold.

Get the right products delivered to your doorstep at the right time of year with our fertilizer programs. You don't have to remember to go to the store or figure out which product is best for Idaho's climate, soil, and grass.

SPRING:  Fertilize: Give your yard the nutrients it needs to get a headstart on weeds (mid-March to April). We deliver kickstart my YARD™ 26-0-0

SUMMER:  Use a fertilizer with a high % of slow-release nitrogen to provide adequate levels of nutrition without overstimulating growth. Our lawnDOMINATOR™ 33-3-6 and swardSTAR™ 24-4-12 ship out in June and August depending on your program.

FALL:  Fall is the most critical nutrient application as it sends your grass into winter with plenty of carbohydrates to ensure a healthy spring rebound. We ship our lay down the LAWN™ 25-5-15 which contains a high dose of potassium for plant vigor.

WINTER:  Some de-icing agents can run off and cause issues with your soil, affecting your yard's ability to come out of dormancy healthy. We offer iceSICKLE™ Snow and Ice Melt which is non-toxic, pet and kid safe, and won't harm your grass.
