Pro Lawn is the residential and commercial lawn fertilizing division of the Door County Cooperative. We offer 6 basic lawn care applications which can be ordered in a package or ordered separately.

Deluxe Program
This is our most comprehensive lawn care program. You will receive all 5 fertilizing applications listed below. A core aeration may be added in fall to further help your lawn. This program will provide excellent weed control and a balanced fertilization level.

Standard Program
This is our most popular program. You will receive applications 1, 2, 4 and 5. Our crabgrass preventer, 2 weed and feeds, and a winterizing fertilizer will definitely give you a lawn to be proud of.

Application #1 - Pre-Emergence Crabgrass Prevention & Early Dry Fertilizer (April - May)
Crabgrass problems are most easily controlled with pre-emergence applications which work on the germinating crabgrass seeds. The product we use is "Dimension".  Note - You will not be able to overseed areas where "Dimension" has been applied until the following August or September.

APPLICATION #2  -  Broadleaf Weed Herbicide with Fertilizer     (Mid May - July) 
A weed free lawn will require an herbicide application in early spring to control the weeds germinating at that time.  The fertilizer applied is a supplement to the early spring application and is very beneficial to the turf grass.

APPLICATION #3  -  Granular Fertilizer     (June - August)
This application is a turf building fertilizer with slow release nitrogen.  It will provide your lawn with a steady source of nitrogen over the summer months promoting a thicker, greener lawn.

APPLICATION #4  -  Fall Broadleaf Weed Herbicide with Fertilizer     (August - Early October)
This application is aimed at controlling perennial weeds which germinated in the summer and prevent them from flowering next spring.  The fertilizer is a booster to assure ample nutrients are available to begin the fall growth period of cool season grasses.

APPLICATION #5  -  Fall Granular Fertilizer and Micronutrients     (September - November) 
This application is aimed at encouraging a healthy root growth during the time of the year when roots are growing most actively.  Our special blend of plant nutrients prepare your lawn to withstand summer dryness during the next growing season.

APPLICATION #6  -  Core Aeration     (Fall) 
The roots of your lawn need air to grow.  This treatment pulls cores of soil from your lawn and allows air, water, and fertilizers to penetrate into the root zone of your turf.  These cores disintegrate after a rainfall and top-dress your lawn. Aeration is particularly used on compacted clay soils and areas where there is a thatch build up. 

We also offer 7 additional applications which can be ordered as needed:

APPLICATION #7   GRUB CONTROL
If you are seeing an increasing number of dead patches in your lawn or it looks like something has been digging holes in your yard, you could have grubs.  For the best results, grub control should be applied in May or June.  If you've had grubs in the past, it's a good idea to reapply at least every other year.

APPLICATION #8   INSECTICIDE
If you are having problems with carpenter or fire ants, spiders, bees or wasps, biting flies, boxelder bugs, earwigs, pllbugs etc., then our insecticide is just what you need.  We can spray your entire lawn or a portion of your lawn.  It provides 1 month of residual control on some pests and as much as 3 months on many others.

APPLICATION #9   FUNGICIDE
While somewhat rare in this part of the state, we still do have our share of fungus problems.  In many cases, fungus problems don't originate in lawns that were seeded by hand.  Most fungus issues occur in lawns where sod was laid.  In addition, most of the fungus issues don't occur until 2-3 years after the sod was laid.

APPLICATION #10   TOTAL VEGETATION KILLER
We apply a commercial grade product (similar to Round-Up) that kills most, if not all, types of vegetation.  We use this product in mulched areas, around rocks and planting beds, before driveways are put in, or to kill an area for future use.

APPLICATION #11   POISON IVY SPRAY
Works to control and kill poison ivy.

APPLICATION #12   PERIMETER PEST CONTROL
We spray an insecticide around the base of your house which extends out approximately 6-10 feet.  This will create a perimeter so ants, spiders, etc. can't easily enter your home.

APPLICATION #13   MOSQUITO CONTROL
Planning an outdoor wedding, party, or just dont want to deal with mosquitoes in your back yard?  Our mosquito spray will definitely make your outdoor experience more enjoyable.  We spray the perimeter of your property, your trees, and any problem areas you have.  Past customers have received 1-3 months of virtually mosquito free yards after we sprayed them.
