Lawn Applications and Pesticide Labels

Granulated Lime

Granulated Lime is a specially sized quicklime which meets exacting particle size specifications. Granulated lime provides our customers with a fine yet dust-free product. Increases the pH of the lawn in order to help plants absorb certain necessary nutrients. It also helps fertilizer work more efficiently. Granulated Lime should only be applied when grass is actively growing. This product should be evenly spread at a rate not exceeding 10kg/100m (1 Tonne per Hectare). Make monthly applications until the desired pH is reached. This treatment is usually applied in March, April, November or December.

ACE USES PELLITIZED LIME BECAUSE IT IS BETTER IN MANY WAYS, WORKS FASTER TO RISE THE PH AND LASTS LONGER. IT ALSO STAYS WHERE WE WANT IT, IN THE TURF WITH NO MORE WHITE MESS.

Fertilizer - enriches soil and provides essential nutrients to a lawn. Fertilizers are literally plant food additives. Very few soils are fertile enough to supply the nutrients which healthy plants need. The soil in most areas has become so depleted over the years that fertilizers and other additives must be added.

Ace uses fertilizer is used at the end of March, June, Sept and in the fall.

Fungicide - Helps to eradicate disease. Fungus not removed from gardens can significantly hurt the health and longevity of your lawn. Fungicide is used in conjunction with fertilizer. It helps reduce brown patch dollar spots and rust.

A Fungicide is one of three main methods of pest control- chemical control of fungi in this case. Fungicides are chemical compounds used to prevent the spread of fungi in gardens and crops, which can cause serious damage to the plants. Fungicides are also used to fight fungal infections.

Fungicides can either be contact or systemic. A contact fungicide kills fungi when sprayed on its surface. A systemic fungicide has to be absorbed by the fungi before the fungi dies. One example is the QoI.

Chemical fungicides however can also cause problems:

  1. They can be persistent in the environment and in living organisms; and so do not break down.
  2. They bioaccumulate and become increasingly toxic for other creatures in the environment. They can build up to lethal concentrations.

Nutsedge - Also known as nutgrass, is one of the toughest weeds to invade turf and ornamental beds. Many try to pull the plants out, but you probably already know that hand-weeding only allows the nutsedge to spread faster. July or early August or as the problem occurs or needs treatment.

*This weed is a plant and it may take up to 4 years to get under control with the proper treatments and application.

*Prices start $ 45.00 per application

Tree and Shrub Deep Root Feeding - Trees growing in their natural habitat should have access to all of the minerals they need to survive and grow. Anything you can do to mimic that habitat can reduce the need for fertilizer. This may include letting leaves remain on the ground in the fall instead of raking them up. Chances are, though, that despite your best efforts, the need for fertilizer will not be entirely eliminated.
