Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control

Traverse City and Leelanau County

Green Team offers  4 application and  5 application lawn fertilizer & weed control programs for each growing season in Traverse City and Leelanau County. The applications are usually scheduled every 4 to 6 weeks throughout the season.

Since Traverse City and Leelanau County are surrounded by water, we have developed a customized “Lake Friendly” lawn fertilization & weed control program. All of our applications are phosphate-free and we make sure to leave a buffer strip around all bodies of water during our applications. Our lawn technicians will also be inspecting your property every application to look for possible diseases or insect infestations on your lawn.

Lawn Care Application Schedule:

Early Spring – This lawn application includes slow-release fertilizer, crabgrass preventer, and liquid weed control.

Late Spring – Includes slow-release fertilizer and liquid weed control

Early Summer – Includes slow-release fertilizer and liquid weed control.

Late  Summer – Includes slow-release fertilizer and liquid weed control.

Fall – The most important application of the season. Includes slow-release fertilizer that promotes deep root growth to help your lawn come back stronger in the spring and the final liquid weed control application that has the greatest action against the difficult to control weeds.

Our first fertilization application depends on how quickly the snow melts and the ground temperatures warm up, but it is typically scheduled for late April to early May.


The cost of each lawn application depends on the size of your lawn. Please contact us or call 231-866-1860 for a free quote and evaluation of your property.

You can choose from 2 ways to pay – pay per application or prepay for the entire season. If you pay per application our technicians will leave an invoice on your door or email you an invoice the next day. If you prepay for the entire season you will receive a discount for that seasons program.

If you are unsatisfied with an application, please feel free to call us and we will revisit the lawn at no charge.
