SunCo is one of the few locally owned lawn care companies in Omaha and Council Bluffs to offer a choice in fertilizer programs. We offer two types of 6-step fertilizer programs, traditional and now, our NEW organic hybrid program. If you sign up for either one using our EZPay or prepayment option, you’ll receive your first step for only $28.40* (based on a 5,000 square foot yard. Call for your estimate).

Good for the environment, Good for those you love.

1ST APPLICATION: Bio-Nutrients, Crabgrass Control and Fertilizer
This first visit will help wake up your lawn from the long winter. A careful evaluation of your lawn will reveal any prior season problems that may need to be addressed. We’ll also apply bio-nutrient products to promote early spring green-up, target weeds, and prevent crabgrass.

2ND APPLICATION: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
This application will continue to target weeds and also promote a greener color and robust root system. Our Organic-Hybrid lawn care program provide beautiful results with fewer nitrates and pesticides than traditional programs.

3RD APPLICATION: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
Our third application will continue to strengthen your lawn while managing those persistent weeds. The bio-nutrient supplements will also help your lawn continue to thrive in the summer heat while improving the cell structure of the grass. We also recommend a grub preventative treatment during this visit to keep white grubs from potentially destroying your lawn. (Supplemental services are available for additional fees.)

4TH APPLICATION: Fertilizer, Targeted Weed Control and/or Post Emergent Controls
During this mid-year visit, we will evaluate your lawn’s health and address any needs it might have. Whether your lawn could use more fertilizer, targeted weed treatment, or additional post-emergent control to manage problem grasses, we have it covered.

5TH APPLICATION: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
As we move into fall, our fifth application will help your lawn recover from the stress of summer and target any pesky weeds that may have popped up. We recommend core aeration and overseeding during this visit to reduce soil compaction and introduce a variety of different and quality grasses to your lawn. (Supplemental services are available for additional fees.)

6TH APPLICATION: Balanced Fertilizer
During this final visit and before your lawn goes into winter dormancy, we’ll apply a final fertilizer to feed the root system and help your lawn adequately withstand the long and potentially harsh winter. This application also promotes earlier green-up next spring.

A healthy lawn needs adequate nutrients for growth and color. SunCo uses the finest controlled release products to help you maintain a beautiful yard. SunCo’s applicators are all trained and certified by the EPA.

Round 1

The first of two pre-emergent/fertilizer combinations are applied to enhance color and for season-long control of grassy weeds such as crabgrass, foxtail, and spurge. In addition, broadleaf weeds are spot treated, if present. Watering: For optimal results, treatment should be watered in within 7 days after application.

Round 2

A slow-release fertilizer is applied that will encourage good, consistent color of the turf. This application also contains a second dose of pre-emergent to provide season-long control of crabgrass and other grassy weeds. Lawn will be spot sprayed or blanket sprayed, if needed, for broadleaf weeds. Watering: For optimal results, this application should be watered within 48 hours. As temperatures get warmer, lawn should be watered at least one to two inches per week, depending on weather conditions, to maintain good health and color.

Round 3 with Grub Control

We apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer for early summer to maintain good color and health. A preventative grub control is also applied (if you have purchased this option with your program). Weeds will be spot treated if present. Watering: For best results, this application should be watered in within 24 hours. You should maintain a good watering schedule of 4-5 times per week. Consistent watering is a must to keep grub control active.

*Note – try to limit pet activity on lawn until grub control is watered in.

Round 4

We apply a slow-release fertilizer plus iron to maintain good health and boost color. All weeds will be spot treated at this time, including a post-emergent for any crabgrass that is present. Watering: This application should be watered in within 24 hours. To maintain a lush, green turf, watering should be done at least 4-5 times per week. If lawn is prone to disease problems, consider doing afternoon cool-downs with sprinklers between 2-4 p.m. when temps are above 85 degrees. This will help to prevent diseases from spreading.

Round 5

We apply a slow-release fertilizer to get your yard ready for fall and to help it bounce back from summer. Your lawn is also checked for grub activity and treated if needed. All weeds are spot treated at this time. Watering: This application should be watered in within 24 hours. As temperatures cool, watering can be backed off to 3 times per week. If weather conditions are hot and dry maintain the 4-5 times per week.

Round 6

We apply a winterizing application. The turf will store the nutrients over the winter keeping the roots healthy. This will also help to give your lawn a quick green-up next spring. Watering can be backed off to 2 times per week; unless you are trying to germinate seed, then you need to keep moist until germination. We generally start shutting down sprinkler systems in mid-October, which is a good time to let mother nature handle the moisture from there on out.

Grubs are the larvae of beetles. Grubs damage your lawn’s root system, which can lead to severe turf loss. Prevent this damage with an application of one of SunCo’s guaranteed insecticides.

Lawn aeration involves making holes in the lawn by extracting finger-sized plugs of soil. The plugs of soil are left on the lawn and are reabsorbed into the turf. This process allows oxygen, nutrients and fertilizers to blend with the soil. The benefits include:

  • Increased absorption of water, oxygen and fertilizer into the soil
  • Reduction of thatch build-up
  • A thicker lawn and promotion of deeper root growth

SunCo recommends aeration service in both the Spring and Fall. During either season, the SunCo outdoor specialists perform this service along with over-seeding. Overseeding is broadcasting seed over an already established lawn. This can help thicken turf reducing competition from weeds. An over-seeding service is best done in the fall and at the same time as your aeration. Contact SunCo to schedule your next complete aeration service.

SunCo’s lawn insect program is recommended once a month from April to September. This treatment targets insects that are already present in the lawn, such as fleas and ticks. Once the application is applied it is effective for thirty days. When it dries, it becomes rainfast, meaning it will not lose effectiveness with rain or the use of sprinklers.
