What Is Lawn Fertilization?

Earth Development’s lawn care fertilizer service spans nutrition and aeration, right up to regular maintenance and mowing. 

We use nitrogen and other important nutrients to ensure your grass is properly nourished with healthy soil. It even keeps weeds at bay and prevents fungi and pests.

We are very happy with how Earth Development has been handling our account. We REALLY like the Sitefotos reports that are being sent to us. It gives us a great idea on how the site is looking and allows for us to look through the photos and decide if we want to go ahead with any of the recommended work. For example trees or bushes that block the line of sight for drivers or pedestrians, bushes/branches hanging into sidewalks, etc. Also, big props for how quickly you respond to issues! With 45 sites not everything is going to be perfect all of the time, but the fact that Earth Development addresses issues immediately when they come up is a huge help. We want to give a huge shout out and Thank You to Earth Development. We appreciate all the improvements you've made, and how good your communications and service has been. Keep up the good work!
