Lawn Care

Let the outdoor specialists at SunCo maintain your great outdoors. It’s the easiest way to enjoy a green, lush and weed free lawn.

Round 1: Bio-Nutrients, Crabgrass Control and Fertilizer
This first visit will help wake up your lawn from the long winter.

Round 2: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
This application will continue to target weeds and also promote a greener color and robust root system.

Round 3: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
This 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.

Round 4: 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.

Round 5: Bio-Nutrients, Fertilizer and Targeted Weed Controls
This will help your lawn recover from the stress of summer and target any pesky weeds that may have popped up.

Round 6: Balanced Fertilizer
Final fertilizer to feed the root system and help your lawn adequately withstand the long and potentially harsh winter.

Round 1. 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. Broadleaf weeds are spot treated, if present.

Round 2. 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.

Round 3 with Grub Control. Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer for early summer to maintain good color and health. A preventative grub control is also applied. Weeds will be spot treated if present.

Round 4. 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. 

Round 5. Slow-release fertilizer to get your yard ready for fall and to help it bounce back from summer. Lawn is also checked for grub activity and treated if needed. All weeds are spot treated at this time.

Round 6. 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.

Japanese Beetles are mainly active for 2 months during the summer in Omaha. Most of the time these bugs are in the grub stage and only adults for a short period of time (Late-June to Mid-August).

From June to August we have to worry about adult beetles in our trees as they do major damage. The females attract other males to mate and often they come in swarms. After they devour your trees and plants, they lay their eggs in the soil for the process to start all over again.

The best time to have SunCo spray your trees and shrubs is during their feeding and mating stage from June-August.  Also a good preventative is to add grub control to your lawn care program.  However, since they are prolific, it is hard to control with this method unless everyone around you is doing the same. At SunCo, we have trained inspectors that can identify the beetle and treat your infested trees and shrubs.

Bagworm caterpillars make distinctive 1.5 to 2 inch long spindle-shaped bags that can be seen hanging from twigs of a variety of trees and shrubs. Sometimes the bags are mistaken for pine cones or other plant structures (clever worms). We also can treat Bagworms which infect evergreen trees and shrubs during the same months as the Japanese Beetle. Bagworms prefer juniper, arborvitae, spruce, pine, and cedar but also attack deciduous trees. If you see these worms in your pines, give us a call. We can treat and protect your pines.

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.

Protect your greens this winter

With winter on its way, it’s important to start thinking about your trees and shrubs. Evergreens and Conifers are especially at risk during the winter as water evaporates quickly from their foliage. These winter conditions remove water from the plants faster than the roots can absorb it.

A great line of protection for your trees and shrubs is an anti-desiccant spray. Anti-desiccants create a film when applied to the trees and shrubs that help them retain their moisture for months. Anti-desiccants are also biodegradable so it’s safe for the environment too. Give those greens some love this winter.
