From Lawn Fertilization to So Much More!
Alternative Lawn Care first opened up primarily as a lawn fertilization company in 1989.
Since then, we have greatly expanded our services to include:
- Lawn Maintenance
- Lawn Mowing
- Grub Control
- And More!
The cornerstone of our lawn care program is our fertilization, which consists of 6 applications applied throughout the year. This program is fully customizable to your needs, from the type of fertilizer used to how many applications you receive. Of course, for best results you should take advantage of our full program, but we will also allow you to receive only one or two applications if that is what you want. And you can get this all at a fair price and without a contract for recurring service!
Our vans contain several different types of granular fertilizer at any given time, which allows us to truly custom-tailor our services to you. Your yard may need different types of fertilizer depending on the climate, amount of sun and water the grass gets, and many other factors. We have the knowledge, equipment, and products needed to accommodate any turf type.
The benefits of lawn fertilization include resistance to:
- Heat Stress
The summers in Grand Rapids, MI can get quite hot, which puts a lot of stress on your lawn. If you’ve ever had a summer where it got really hot and your lawn turned brown, keeping to a regular fertilization schedule can help prevent that. Lawn fertilization also helps keep your lawn healthy and thick, which helps to prevent weeds from ever germinating in it.
Core aeration can be an important part of lawn care in Grand Rapids, MI. During this process, we use a machine to pull plugs of soil out of your lawn. This serves to help decompact soil by putting holes in it, which promotes the flow of nutrients and water. These holes are also the prime place for new grass seed to germinate, so core aeration is often done prior to over seeding. However, these holes are also the prime place for weeds to grow, so we make sure that your lawn is completely weed-free before performing this service. The end result is a beautiful, green lawn.
Fully Trained & Certified Technicians
At Alternative Lawn Care, all of our technicians are fully trained and certified.
The employees that do lawn fertilization are completely different from the ones that do mowing and edging, meaning that they’re fully specialized in what they do. This specialization shows up for you as a healthy, green lawn. All of our services are guaranteed. If you ever have a problem, be it with the color of your grass, weeds, or anything else, we will come out and fix the problem at no extra charge. We’re really committed to excellent customer service for our residential and commercial customers in Grand Rapids, MI, and it shows in the quality of our work. We take great care to blow off sidewalks, remove grass from flower beds, and just generally make your property look awesome.
