Home and business owners alike appreciate a soft green lawn. It’s cozy and inviting, and makes you feel at home. That grass is like a blank canvas for any other landscaping feature you’d like to include on your property, and it serves a variety of practical functions.

A healthy lawn resists weeds and pests while absorbing greenhouse gasses and other pollutants. It reduces dust in your house, and it prevents erosion, which helps ensure your other landscaping features and your house itself are built on solid ground. Of course, a soft, comfortable lawn also creates an ideal place to play, lounge, or complete a project.

All of that is made possible with proper lawn fertilization. The team at Better View Landscapes has 25 years of lawn and landscaping experience in Amherst, Massachusetts and throughout the Pioneer Valley, and we’ve perfected our process to include a 5-Application Lawn Care Program that supports the health of your lawn from April to October by providing your soil with essential nutrients and reducing the risk of a takeover by crabgrass or other weeds and pests.

Every year, we reassess our programs to ensure they address the current needs of our local soil and grass. At Better View, we’re not just here to provide lawn fertilization and other lawn care services. We’re here to give you the support you need to care for your property, even in our absence, and we’re ready to answer any questions you might have. Contact us to learn more. If you sign up for one of our three effective lawn fertilization programs before April 1, you’ll receive a 10% discount.

Why Fertilize Your Lawn?

It’s about more than aesthetics. Yes, a fertilized lawn grows thick and green, but that lush growth offers additional benefits. 

When your grass is dense and strong, there’s less room for weed growth and the grass naturally fends off attacks from pests. Fertilizer provides the soil with necessary nutrients that support grass growth and creates a solid foundation for any future landscaping endeavors you decide to pursue.

Simply put, lawn fertilization is lawn health, and a healthy lawn means fewer chores, hassles, and expensive remediation. It helps you create a thriving outdoor space with minimal dust and erosion. When you work with Better View Landscapes, you take advantage of our years of local experience and in-depth understanding of regional soil, climate, and horticulture. We offer three customizable lawn fertilization programs, in addition to complete lawn care and other landscaping services, so we can manage all your outdoor improvements in-house.

Our friendly, knowledgeable team provides responsive communication, cutting-edge equipment and technology, and streamlined processes so you can relax and let us handle all the details.

Below you will find pricing for our 3 different fertilizing options. These plans are built utilizing high-grade fertilizers, advice from industry experts, along with university extension service publications. We adjust our programs year to year (and even application to application) to match the current needs of lawns in our growing region.

  • On-Site or Virtual Meeting

    Once we have determined that your project is a good fit, we will set up an on-site visit or virtual meeting, depending on your project.

If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

Most initial design proposals will be ready within one business day of our initial meeting. Following this design concept meeting, we will prepare your agreement and pricing as discussed and send it to you for approval.

    Once we have completed contract discussions, you can review and sign your design plan or care plan. We will request your installation deposit before scheduling work, and your design fee must be paid prior to beginning design work. Most initial design renderings will be ready within ten business days after your design proposal has been accepted, with a follow-up meeting(s) upon completion of the initial design plan. For landscape maintenance plans, we will provide you with an invoice in the week following each service visit, and payment will be charged against the card you have on file.

    Once you have signed your service agreement, maintenance and installation services will be added to the schedule. You will receive regular communication from our team to ensure that any questions and concerns are addressed quickly.
