Lawn Fertilization in Austin, TX

Our area's poor soils and harsh climate make lawn fertilization in Austin an effective way to deliver critical nutrients to your grass and plants. The specialists at ABC Home & Commercial Services can work with you to create an annual schedule to deliver just what your lawn needs at the right times to keep your yard healthy and green.

ABC’s treatment plan consists of seven services over a 12-month period. The products applied are designed to optimize turf health, color, and root growth. The program includes weed control with pre-emergent applications in the spring and fall, designed to help reduce weed germination.

We can’t guarantee a weed-free lawn (and be suspicious of any lawn service that does), but we can reduce the number of interlopers to your turf. Post-emergent weed treatments will also be provided throughout the season targeting broadleaf weeds. In order to be environmentally conscious, we will treat only when and where needed. Our primary products contain active ingredients which balance the soil’s ecosystem, building strong roots and growing healthier, resilient plants.

The ABC Process

1. Contact ABC

We’ll learn what you need over the phone or during an in-person meeting at your home. Usually, we can schedule an appointment in a few business days.

2. Get An Estimate

We’ll provide you with an estimate based on your goals and our recommended set of services. Once we get your approval, we will get you on the schedule.

3. Service

Our trained specialists perform all agreed-upon services. When we’re done, we will clean up any debris to keep your yard neat and looking great.

4. Follow-Up

Depending on what services we performed on your property, we’ll provide you with an update or recommend additional follow-up or ongoing services.

ABC believes that using organic products that promote overall health of the turf is the best approach. Some fertilizers contain artificial or synthetic chemicals and we do our best to avoid the use of those fertilizers. A normal treatment schedule includes seven treatment visits over the course of the year, from an ABC lawn specialist.

Every yard has individual needs, and that means that the best approach to service your lawn could very well be different from the approach that works for your neighbor across the street. We’ll create a service schedule based on your unique lawn.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any other turf building options?

Yes, we recommend regular applications of compost. Compost is organic material applied directly onto the lawn and is designed to improve the overall health of the turf. We would typically recommend aeration with compost and we suggest it be done twice a year – typically in the Fall and Spring.

What is the best approach to help an unhealthy lawn?

If achieving a perfectly green lawn seems to be a constant challenge, you are not alone. Even a climate that’s as friendly as Central Texas’ can be hard on grass.

Central Texas generally has all the sunlight your lawn might want, but without the right nutrients, your grass won’t necessarily be able to take advantage of our sunny climate to thrive and grow. That’s why regular lawn care, with organic, turf-building products is the key part of the foundation your yard needs, and ABC Home and Commercial Services—Austin can provide.

When our lawn care specialists visit your home, the first step is identifying exactly what your lawn needs. Our specialists will survey your lawn, observe the conditions that affect growth such as shade from trees and the slope of your lawn, and develop a custom plan for your yard. The custom plan will include an estimate that details what we recommend and what the options are. Once we have a plan that meets your needs, we’ll schedule a time and day for the treatment—and you don’t even have to be home when we visit.

Are you able to provide weed control for lawns?

A healthy lawn and a weed-free lawn go hand in hand. If a lawn is healthy and thriving, most weeds will be choked out. So yes, weed care is included in our regular schedule of treating your lawn. Additionally, when we choose a weed control product, it will be used only when and where necessary to gain maximum results.

This approach may require more patience, but we have found it is the best approach for lawn care in our communities.

Are your products environmentally friendly?

We choose our products according to their compliance with environmental standards. Our first efforts and recommendations almost always begin with recommending natural, organic and low-impact products. The well-being of your family and the environment is our company’s priority. The products we select are designed for use around schools, businesses and homes.

“One of ABC's electricians, Joshua, did a fantastic job installing shop lighting (inside/outside), a few panels, and re-wiring multiple areas. As a small-business owner, I know how hard it is to find great workers. Josh and his team are exceptional, and ABC should keep a hold of him.”

“ABC Home & Commercial has been taking care of me and my house for over a decade. This review is for their Spring AC maintenance. They come out every year before the hot summer months arrive to make sure that my AC system will be up to the job. Randall checked everything: He conducted amp maintenance, checked the blower wheel & blower motor, checked all amps, pressures and temperatures, cleared the drain line, flushed, and primed the u-trap, checked the capacitors, contractors and safety components and washed the condenser. I would never do all that myself. Most people are lucky if they remember to put bleach (or white vinegar as Randall suggested instead) in their drain line occasionally. AC in Texas is one of those things that always goes out at the most inconvenient time. I think it's important to do my part to take care of one of the most expensive "appliances" in my home. ABC will be back in the fall to do the checkup on my heating system. A few years ago, they discovered that my heater would not have started the next time it was needed, and they were able to replace the part right then and there for a good price. The folks they send are always professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. I highly recommend ABC Home & Commercial!”
