Silver Program

Our Silver Program provides applications during the four key time periods for lawns in Bloomington Indiana. The first application consists of a pre-emergent herbicide paired with a small amount of slow release fertilizer to kick start the feeding of your turf in the early spring. The pre-emergent application is critical in preventing unwanted annual broadleaf weed seeds from germinating and gaining a stronghold within your lawn and we incorporate this application into all three programs offered!


Applications two through four each contain a combination of quick release fertilizer and slow release fertilizer, paired with a targeted broadleaf application. The additional application within the Silver Program comes between Mid-april and early May. This application serves to control tough annual weeds, dandelions, and late sprouting summer annuals. It also provides nutrients to the soil and turf to prepare for the summer heat.

This Silver Program provides many benefits for your lawn throughout the year but doesn’t quite hit goal Nitrogen levels and provides a little bit of opportunity for hardy broadleaf weeds to survive. The optimal amount of Nitrogen for Indiana turf is 3.5-3.7lbs of Nitrogen per 1000 square feet. However, it is unhealthy to apply more than 1lb of Nitrogen per 1000 square feet on any individual application, and turfgrass only needs about .5lbs of Nitrogen per 1000 square feet per application during the spring. As a result, the Silver program will come up slightly short of the optimal annual Nitrogen per 1000 square feet goal at about 3.25lbs per 1000 square feet. The Bronze Program is an excellent program to increase turf health and reduce unwanted weeds for turfgrasses in Bloomington Indiana! It comes very close to complete weed control measures while delivering near optimal amounts of Nitrogen throughout the year.
