Worry Free Lawn Service
Thank you Envisioning Green for the wonderful time at your open house. The weather kept some away but I am so glad we decided to come! I will be passing your business cards along and recommending your company to everyone!💝 Beautiful work, and exceptional people!
My wife and I just want to thank Envisioning Green and their great employees Doug, Justin and Jeremy. You made our back hillside look amazing and truly hit what we wanted. I wish I could post pictures as I have been bragging to everyone. The guys worked their tails off in the high heat and I could not be more grateful for what they did. They were attentive to their work and our dogs.
Very professional with excellent work, Patrick and Mike made my experience so easy and relaxed. If you're going to have a project I would recommend Envisioning Green. You'll be insured it's done right the first time!!! 5 Stars Already planning my next job!! Gene A Campbell Sr.
I always prefer to work with locally grown companies. The people drive the experience and Lindsey, Terry, Josh, Scot and Steven were enthusiastic when answering my questions and eager to over-deliver. I was smart to do business with people who want to serve me as their first priority. Thanks to Team EG!Ron - Godfrey, IL
One of my favorite things to do is mow the grass. As a newer small business owner, my time has become more limited, so I realized that I needed to find a great company to handle my mowing needs. Lindsey in the office took care of getting an appointment scheduled and Patrick was prompt with coming out and providing me with a thorough assessment. A few days later, I received a handwritten thank you in the mail for contacting them and providing them with the opportunity to work with me. Needless to say, I signed the contract and have already had my first mowing! Nothing was better than coming home after a long day of work to have the lawn mowed and looking great!!
I want to thank Steve and his crew for an incredibly great purchasing experience..I had contacted Envisioning Green regarding the "GREEN EGG" grill/smoker/cookers. I was explained to by Steve what all they had,invited down, went down, and had a great time chatting with the guys at shop. They provided a great deal of knowledge about theproduct(s), all of your options, what all you really needed to start with, made great suggestions as far as what we'd discussed cooking,etc..,just a great bunch!! A refreshing experience in today's world of seemingly unhappy people in unhappy jobs!! These guys rocked from first e-mail,first call, visit,& through entire purchasing experience!! Aside from the incredibly beautiful pond and patio display set ups out front, just great people to work with. I hope some day I cam utilize them for a larger, patio type setup.. Would highly recommend these guys(and gals)..!! Thank you again, Steve and your crew!! j.s.shields
I am extremely pleased with the service I was provided from Steven and the staff of his company when I bought a Big Green Egg XL and had trouble putting it together properly. I would definitely refer this company to another, and look to them for future needs I may have for outdoor living space or lawn care needs!
I received outstanding service from the team at Envisioning from the time of pick up of my Big Green Egg to once I was at home and had trouble putting it together. They helped finish what was started and I was very pleased!
Thank you Envisioning Green for the Superior Hospitality! Great and Friendly staff. If you need outdoor Kitchens, Landscaping, and other Lawn Maintenance choose Envisioning Green. Great staff, Great Product, and Great Service!
Wonderful people that provide a top notch service. The transformations these guys can do to your yard/outdoor areas are simply amazing. The staff and owners are always very polite and greet you with a smile. I would recommend them to anyone!

WHAT IS THE BEST LAWN FERTILIZER SCHEDULE?

Early Spring

Who invited the crabgrass to stay? Pre-emergent weed and crabgrass control to provide season-long control of crabgrass. Also includes slow-release fertilizer to promote early color and growth.

Late Spring

Start your spring without the weeds! With another dose of crabgrass preventative, this application adds broadleaf weed control to knock clover and dandelions dead! With slow release fertilizer to promote grass hardiness, rich nitrogen storage for the months ahead, and fertilizers to give the ability to rebound from stress.

Early Summer

We know you like dark green grass! Slow release fertilizer to promote grass hardiness, rich nitrogen storage for the months ahead, fertilizers to give the ability to rebound from stress, and we will also spot treat as necessary. (Optional Grub/Insect Control)

Late Summer

The weeds want to come back but we won’t let them! Our specialists will scout for new, warm season weeds that have emerged and spot treat them. We will also provide summer heat stress protection with broad leaf weed control. (Optional Sedge Grass Control).

Fall

Cool nights encourage new weeds, we get to the root of that problem! A fertilizer to restore nutrients and encourage new root growth. Cool season weeds want to work their way in, which our specialists will treat.

Winter

It’s not over yet! Winterization fertilizer that is specially blended to promote fall root development helps roots store water and food for winter survival and strong root development the following year.

PROFESSIONAL LAWN CARE VS. DIY LAWN FERTILIZATION

With all the options in the local home and garden stores, it’s easy to be tempted to fertilize your lawn yourself. The advertisements for those fertilizers make it look easy, right? While you may have some results from tearing open a bag of any old fertilizer and spreading it around your yard, it probably won’t be very consistent. There’s actually a lot of science that goes into a professional lawn fertilization schedule and it’s probably best to leave that science to a professional.

Additionally, the amount of time, effort, and even cost you can save by hiring a professional company can often outweigh the “savings” of doing it yourself. Not all lawn fertilizer companies are the same, so be sure to consider these things:

Lawn Care FAQs

According to the American Time Use Survey, Americans (on average) spend about 70 hours per year on lawn care. We’re not sure about your life but that extra 70 hours could be used very well with your family, your friends, your hobbies, and, well, really anything but maintaining your lawn.

Above and beyond the time spent is the effort that it takes to know and understand the needs of your lawn. Without the background education that a professional has, there will be extra effort in research and going to the store to get the fertilizer itself. A company that has the experience in professional lawn fertilization services will know what to look for in a distressed lawn, what fertilizer to use, how to properly apply and when to apply it based on where you live, this time of year’s climate, and the type of soil in your yard.

The average fertilizer bag costs between $40 and $60. If you purchase the wrong kind and have to repurchase a different formula, you will eat that cost. Additionally, heaven forbid, you use one that damages your lawn further then it will cost even more to bring it back to its original state only to have to spend more to make it healthier again. A professional lawn company will know exactly what to do to make your lawn its healthiest and will do it right the first time. Additionally, the average cost for a professional company to fertilize your lawn is about the price of a bag of name-brand fertilizer. We use a higher grade and better quality of chemicals, which we buy in bulk for the cost savings, and can pass those savings on to you INCLUDING our professional knowledge and labor at one fixed cost with your contract.

As mentioned above, we have a set schedule that has a history of success to back it up. We take into account the “nitrogen release rate”, use controlled-release fertilizers to provide a steady, controlled release after the initial quick-release of nitrogen to quickly “green up” your yard. This controlled release gradually balances the nutrients over the soil for a period of approximately 8 weeks thus leaving a consistent and constant supply of nitrogen and nutrients for the grass.

There are a variety of mixtures and a professional lawn company knows how to properly select the mix that is best for your lawn. There are three major nutrients in fertilizer (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) and each play an important role in a lush and healthy lawn.

  • Nitrogen – like mentioned before, this is what makes the grass appear lush and green
  • Phosphorus – for root grown stimulation
  • Potassium – for increased tolerance of disease and drought

If doing it yourself, you would have to figure out the square footage of your lawn and do some math to figure out how many bags you would need for your lawn. With a professional company, they would do all that math for you.

Unlike when doing it yourself, hiring a professional lawn maintenance service comes with a satisfaction guarantee. We provide the service and, if it’s not right, we will fix it. That doesn’t happen with your local home and garden store because when you buy the fertilizer, you’re taking the accountability that it’s going to work.

Like with anything, you have to weigh the benefits, the risks, and the cost of doing it yourself vs hiring a professional lawn service company. You know which side of the scale that we’re on but really, just ask yourself this:

Would you rather: a) spend your weekends fertilizing and keeping up with lawn maintenance or b) hire a professional lawn service and spend your time doing what matters most, spending time with your friends and family?
