Pierces is licensed by the Ohio Department of Agriculture as a custom applicator.  With modern technology and integrated pest management (IPM), a very low concentration of chemical is needed to control the toughest weeds and insects.  In fact, the EPA has strict regulations on all the products we use.

Combined with IPM we have a 5 step Turf control application:

  1. March through April:  A balanced fertilizer with (Dimension) pre-emergent is applied.
  2. May through June:  A balanced fertilizer with broad leaf weed control is applied.  Along with spot treating of any weeds, or insects.
  3. July through August:  We use a slow release fertilizer and spot treatment for broad leaf weeds.
  4. September through October:  A complete balanced fertilizer and broad leaf weed control is used.
  5. November through December:  (Turf is shutting down for the season).  A slow release balanced fertilizer is applied to promote root development and faster green-up for next season.
