Does your lawn need fertilizer, or are invasive insects at the literal root of the problem? Or could the density of your soil be the problem? Let the experts at Winkler provide you with a free inspection. Once we do, we will create a customized 6-treatment service plan with any of the following possible programs.
Your landscape needs proper nutrition to be healthy. Winkler offers an effective fertilization program designed to nourish your grass throughout the year. We apply a slow-release granular fertilizer up to six times per year. Our product combines nutrients with weed control to promote not only a beautiful lawn but one that will emerge from winter strong and healthy.
Something that may be keeping you from a beautiful, green lawn is the ever-present weeds. Broadleaf weeds, which can cover large areas of your yard, are aggressive and tenacious invaders with deep-root systems, making them hard to eradicate. Our weed control program targets the root system with an effective liquid weed killer applied throughout the year.

Most homeowners have seen the damage that insects can cause to your yard. But did you know that their larva can wreak havoc below ground before emerging, destroying the entire lawn if left unchecked?

Learn more about how to get rid of grubs in your yard.
Over the winter or in late summer, a layer of organic material called thatch can start to build up around the base of your grass. While this barrier can help to keep out harmful grubs, it also prevents water, air, and nutrients from reaching the roots. That's why we offer:
To make sure you have a yard you love and can enjoy all summer, we also offer additional services, including:
At Winkler Tree & Lawn Care, we do things the right way, even if it takes a bit more time and effort. While the big-name national lawn care companies will mix liquid fertilizer and weed control together for a quicker and cheaper application, the result is far less effective.
We exclusively use premium, Lesco brand products and apply only as needed and where needed—always a slow-release granular fertilizer and always a targeted liquid weed control. It takes a bit more time, but we believe your turf is worth it.
