Once again, please EMAIL RYAN with any possible questions about timing, etc.


UPDATED 8/28/17:  **Due to the holiday, the next update will be provided during the week of 9/11**

APPLICATION #5 (granular fertilizer): Because of huge rains, and delays with other services combining with rain just simply affecting our progress with fertilizer - our 5th application did start the week of 8/21 and will continue towards mid-September. At this time, it is too early to be too specific on completion timing. If you are looking to see when your specific application will be applied, please EMAIL RYAN.

APPLICATION #6 (fall winterizer fertilizer): This will be C N’R’s last application of fertilizer to provide proper nutrients for the soil to use through the dormant season. This application usually starts sometime during the first half of October and we will let you know more details on that once we do get closer.

ONCE AGAIN, any further questions about fertilization/weed control/fungus identification? Please CONTACT RYAN

UPDATED 8/14/17:

APPLICATION #4 (liquid spray): This application has now been completed. EMAIL RYAN with any further questions.

APPLICATION #5 (granular fertilizer): This application has now been delayed a bit due to weather, and will likely commence during the latter half of the week of August 14th, but not really heavily getting into this application until the week of August 21st. Thereafter, C N’R will continue to plug away at this APP until it is completed. Still too early to project a completion date. Stay tuned for later updates. !

MORE ABOUT BROADLEAF WEEDS? These such weeds are dicots with paired cotyledons (two seed leaves that usually appear during germination) and are characterized by their broad leave with a network of veins. Examples of such weeds are dandelions, chickweed, plantain, etc. If you are experiencing more weeds than expected, always CONTACT US immediately and we will get on it ASAP. Of course, each visit throughout the year, C N’R is monitoring your grassy areas. But, in-between applications, it helps if we get some more feedback at times when you feel things need attention. No problem!

For any further questions/comments/concerns, please simply CONTACT RYAN


UPDATED 8/7/17:

APPLICATION #4 (liquid spray): This application has been going on for a few weeks now. Technically, this is a follow up application to cover more weed growth and also does include a post-emergent crabgrass killer. This application will wrap up by the end of the week of August 7th. Please read below for more information on broadleaf weeds.

APPLICATION #5 (granular fertilizer): This application is slated to begin on Monday, August 14th. As far as projections for completion? … a little too early to provide a solid date of completion. Will depend on weather. We do have a holiday coming up too (Labor Day). Future updates will be coming as we get into the application a bit further. Stay tuned!

UPDATED 7/27/17: **Next update will not come until the week of August 7th**

OPTIONAL GYPSUM APPLICATION (granular): As said on the front page, this is an optional application that our GREAT customers can sign up for on the FERTILIZATION CONTRACT By the end of July 11th, this application has been fully completed for all customers that did sign up. If you are experiencing some heat stress on your grassy areas, this is a great way to help relieve the problem. EMAIL RYAN for more details. We can apply it anytime!

APPLICATION #4 (liquid spray): This is a liquid type application which is basically a “follow-up” of APP #2. Properties always need a second round of broadleaf weed spray which includes a post-emergent crabgrass killer, plus most other broadleaf weeds. This application began right around July 12th and will continue into the first half of August. We are projecting it to be completed sometime during the week of August 7th. Weather really affects this application because it is liquid, so with a really dry streak of weather, things can get done sooner. With a wet streak of weather, this application can back up. We will update once again during the week of August 7th.

APPLICATION #5 (granular): This will be C N’R next application after APP 4 mentioned above and should commence shortly after APP 4 is completed. By mid-August, we should be fully into this application and hopefully finish up around Labor Day. At the time of this update, way too early to talk about timing too much, but that is the general idea. Then our final APP of fertilizer (the winterizer) will hold off until October. More to come!

UPDATED 7/17/17:
**Since our last update on 7/9/17 - there are no changes to our fert application progress through the week of 7/17/17. During the week of 7/24/17, we will update once again with more details of progress and timing**

APPLICATION #3 (granular fertilizer): This application was completed June 28th.

OPTIONAL GYPSUM APPLICATION: This application can help relieve summer heat stress that affects grassy areas. The use of Gypsum helps breaks up compacted soils and at the same time, helps strengthen the root structure. The process of loosening up the soil will also reduce water run-off. This application will be completed by the end of Tuesday, July 11th. Once again, this is an optional application made available on C N’R's FERTILIZATION CONTRACT.

APPLICATION #4 (liquid spray): This liquid application includes broadleaf weed control. Basically a “follow-up” application to APP #2 located on C N’R’s FERTILIZATION CONTRACT and specs page. Expect this application to begin on Tuesday, July 11th, and will last through the rest of the month of July and possibly into early August. Timing depends on weather. We cannot use liquid types of weed killer when it is raining or when too much rain is in the forecast. So, any rain events through the month of July can slow the process where this APP may linger into August. We will keep you posted.

MORE ABOUT WEEDS? As we get into the hottest months of the year, it is normal to see some more weeds popping up within your turf. Because C N’R is now working on another weed control application, if you do see weeds, do not fret. We will be there to spray any day now.

For further questions regarding our fertilization program, please CONTACT RYAN.

UPDATED 6/26/17: **NOTE: Our next update will occur sometime during the week of July 10th.

APPLICATION #3 (granular fertilizer): This application commenced on June 6th and was completed by June 28th. This application is based on current weather and soil conditions, and we even factor in past weather. This is our 3rd “normal” app of the season which should generate a spike in growth and greening of your turf.

OPTIONAL GYPSUM APPLICATION: This application can help relieve summer stress that affects grassy areas. The use of Gypsum helps break up compacted soils and strengthen the root structure. The process of loosening up the soil will reduce water runoff as well. C N’R should get started and even possibly complete this application during the week of July 3rd is now the plan. Keep in mind, this application is an OPTIONAL application you can sign up for on our FERTILIZATION CONTRACT.

APPLICATION #4: This APP includes a liquid form broadleaf weed control (follow-up of application #2) which includes crabgrass post-emergent and covers most broadleaf weed control. C N’R expects this application to commence during the week of July 10th - give or take, and will last through much or all of the month of July and likely into early August. We will update you on progress and completion projections as we go.

WEEDS? If you are noticing too many weeds within your turf areas, please EMAIL RYAN immediately and we will get on it. If it can wait until Application #4 (above) is completed, then the weeds will be taken care of during the month of July anyways.

For any questions concerning any application of fertilizer, please CONTACT RYAN.


UPDATED 6/19/17:

APPLICATION #3 (granular fertilizer): This application commenced on June 6th and will continue to the end of June. An exact completion date is tough to come by, but sometime between June 23rd and June 28th should end this application. This application is based on current weather and soil conditions, and we even factor in past weather. This is our 3rd “normal” app of the season which should generate a spike in growth and greening of your turf.

OPTION GYPSUM APPLICATION: This application can help relieve summer stress that affects grassy areas. The use of Gypsum helps break up compacted soils and strengthen the root structure. The process of loosening up the soil will reduce water runoff as well. C N’R should get started and even possibly complete this application during the week of June 26th. If not finished by the end of the week of June 26th, we will be finishing it around the July 4th time frame. Odds are best that it will be done before the 4th of July. Keep in mind, this application is an OPTIONAL application you can sign up for on our FERTILIZATION CONTRACT.

APPLICATION #4: This APP includes a liquid form broadleaf weed control (follow-up of application #2) which includes crabgrass post-emergent and covers most broadleaf weed control.

UPDATED 6/13/17:

APPLICATION #2 (broadleaf weed spray including dandelions): This application has been fully completed as of the end of Monday, June 5th.

APPLICATION #3 (granular fertilizer): This application is perfect timing as we are seeming to get hotter and dryer. We started this on Tuesday, June 6th, and we expect it to last for most of the month of June. We will provide more timing details later once we get into this application more.

APPLICATION #4 (second round of broadleaf weed spray): This will follow application #3 spoken about above, and likely will be more of a July application.

UPDATED 5/23/17:

APPLICATION #2 (broadleaf weed spray including dandelions): This application now has been shut down for about a week or so since the prior update (see previous updates below). It should not surprise you that we have been shut down because of all the rain. When it rains…no spraying. When there is a good chance at rain?…no spraying. If it continues to be super wet after a rain?…no spraying. All 3 of these scenarios have been true for about the last 10-14 days since. We apologize for this delay of APP #2, but this is totally out of our control, and we greatly appreciate your patience. Our goal is to be finished with this application by June 9th. For more info and anymore questions, please EMAIL RYAN.

SURFACE & SUB-SURFACE INSECTICIDES: These will be applied along side of APP #2 stated above.

APPLICATION #3 (our next round of granular fertilizer): This application will start to be applied immediately following APP #2 stated above. To be general, with the delay of APP #2 and not trusting the weather at all - it is likely this application will get started sometime near/around mid-June.

ONCE AGAIN - for any further questions about our fertilization service, please EMAIL RYAN.


UPDATED 5/18/17:

APPLICATION #1 (pre-emergent): This application was officially completed on May 3rd.

APPLICATION #2 (broadleaf weed spray including dandelions): This application is in progress at the current time, but the weather is definitely causing delays. We cannot spray when rain is in the near forecast, we cannot spray when it is raining, and we cannot spray directly after a rain. C N’R is doing all they can to get this application applied as fast as possible, and the goal is to have this completed by Memorial Day Weekend. This may not be possible with continuing rainfall - just nothing we can do about it. Please EMAIL RYAN with any questions.

SURFACE & SUB-SURFACE INSECTICIDES: If you are signed up to receive these specific optional applications, C N’R is applying these insecticides as we progress through APP #2 stated above.

APP #2 & ALL INSECTICIDES STATE ABOVE look to hopefully be completed before Memorial Day Weekend, or by the end of the first week in June.

ONCE AGAIN, MORE QUESTIONS? Please EMAIL RYAN.


UPDATED 5/9/17:

APPLICATION #1 (pre-emergent): This application was totally completed on May 3rd. For any questions concerning this application, please EMAIL RYAN

APPLICATION #2 (broadleaf weed spray): Although, while we were applying APP #1 above, we were “spot-spraying” weeds as we were going, but as of May 3rd, we are fully completing broadcast spray applications which cover such unwanted weeds as dandelions. Please EMAIL RYAN if you are wondering where you are on the schedule. We are moving through this application as fast as we can so we can get all weeds that are popping under control.

SURFACE & SUB-SURFACE INSECTICIDES: If you are signed up for these optional applications, we are in progress applying these insecticides as we progress through APP #2 above.

APP #2 & ALL INSECTICIDES are slated to be completed by the end of May as long as weather cooperates.


AGAIN, ANYMORE QUESTIONS = please shoot RYAN an EMAIL. He will be happy to assist.


UPDATED 4/25/17:

SPRING GREEN-UP OPTIONAL APPLICATION: If you signed up for this “jump start” application, you have been completed. It is now getting too late to complete this sort of application.

APPLICATION #1 (pre-emergent): This application is currently in progress. We should be able to be done with it prior to the end of the week of May 1st - but we are dependent on the weather. With perfect weather, we will complete this APP much sooner, but with the forecast, we are playing our projections safely at this time. Feel free to EMAIL RYAN for more information needed.

APPLICATION #2 (broadleaf weed spray): C N’R is currently spot spraying a bit as we move through APP #1 above, but we really will not dig deep into this application until APP #1 above is completed.

SURFACE & SUB-SURFACE INSECTICIDES: These will be applied along side with APP #2 above once we do dig deep into that application. Everything is dependent on the completion of APP #1. More details coming as we move along…

AGAIN, ANYMORE QUESTIONS = please shoot RYAN an EMAIL. He will be happy to assist.

#2: Early spring on its way?

If you are looking to sign-up early and pre-pay your fertilization program, we do offer a 10% discount. Existing customers, this is really simple to do. Please EMAIL RYAN and you will we walked through the process.

NEW CUSTOMERS FOR FERTILIZATION/WEED CONTROL? Simply go to our FREE ESTIMATE page, we can get you our contract with prices on it, and you can too sign-up early and receive the 10% discount.

LAST! - will it be an early spring? We are heading that way as of the end of February! What that means is that ground temps will be rising faster at this pace. It makes signing up for our fertilization services early crucial so we can apply your first application of fertilizer (pre-emergent) prior to the ground warming up too far.

We will be in touch with right here with more information & scheduling as we get closer to April.
