Weed control is critical for having a beautiful lawn in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas. Weeds can become troublesome over time and destroy your grass in many ways. A well-balanced lawn fertilization program is also needed to keep your lawn thick and healthy. Some companies use a cookie cutter approach to lawn fertilizing and weed prevention. We think you deserve more than that!

We know that a program for lawn fertilization and weed control that works in one neighboring area may not be right for another. We also know that different people have individual preferences. That’s why we offer you choices.

7 Step Lawn Fertilization & Weed Control Program

Early Spring

In the early spring, your lawn needs extra nutrients to maintain color and density. At this time we will apply a quick release fertilizer. Now is also a great time for spring aeration or dethatching.


With the weather turning warmer we apply a slow release fertilizer that prepares your lawn for summer. We will also apply preventive crabgrass control at this time.

Early Summer

Grub Control/Insect Control is applied, giving season-long control against grubs and the damage they cause. Lawn-Tek highly recommends grub control on all lawns, as they can cause extensive damage to a lawn. These pests can especially wreck a lawn under drought conditions.


Summer conditions can stress your lawn. To prepare for the warm season ahead, we fertilize, look for problems, and treat weeds as necessary. Remember to water, preferably in the early morning.

Late Summer

Care continues with a summer fertilizer application that helps maintain color without encouraging excess growth. Weeds will be treated if necesary, and if grubs are present, we reccomend a control option for you.

Late Fall

The late fall / winterizer promotes root growth and food storage important for your lawn's survival during winter months.

Early Fall

Your lawn needs help rebounding from summer stress. We provide proper fertilization to facilitate recovery, and treat weeds as necessary. Now is a great time for a fall aeration and to seed any bare areas!
