If you’ve been struggling with your lawn—brown spots, slow growth, poor soil—you probably need lawn fertilization. This process infuses the soil with the vital nutrients grass needs to develop strong root systems, grow thick and green, and survive threats from weeds, pests and even drought.. It can transform your yard, not only in appearance, but with a wealth of functional benefits.

Your healthy lawn is evidence of a rugged root system that holds the soil in place, preventing erosion and reducing the amount of dust and dirt that finds its way into your home. Like any other plant, grass helps clean the air, and it creates a soft, inviting space for your family to spend time. Fertilization improves soil texture and condition, which gives you more options for landscaping now and in the future. Thick grass leaves no room for weeds to take hold, and vibrant health allows the grass to fight off pests and infections.

At Better View Landscapes, we offer landscape design, installation, and maintenance, including lawn fertilization, in Florence, Massachusetts and nearby communities. With a 5-Step Application, we support healthy soil and grass throughout the season, with carefully timed treatments to thwart emergent crabgrass and broadleaf weeds. Based on current weather trends and soil conditions, we adapt our program yearly—or even between treatments when required—to ensure we’re addressing the most pressing soil health concerns.

Customize one of our three thorough lawn fertilization programs, including organic fertilization, to best meet your needs. We’ll use high-grade fertilizers and offer professional guidance on how to care for your lawn and ensure its health and beauty over the long term. Programs start as low as $595, and you can save 10% if you sign up before April 1. Contact us to get started.

Better Lawn Fertilization with Better View

A dense green carpet of grass is the basis of most home landscaping plans. Without this rich green lawn, even the most perfect tree and shrub specimens will not showcase their finest qualities, nor will the house itself. In addition to its aesthetic value, a well-kept lawn has many practical functions. It holds the soil in place and reduces dust and mud tracked into the house. It provides a cooler setting for the house by reducing glare and reflected heat from the sun. It also serves as a family recreation area and reduces the risk of injuries. A healthy lawn helps to cool the air and absorbs pollutants and greenhouse gasses.

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.

Our Approach to Personalized Service

At Better View Landscapes, we strive for clarity and transparency. All of our contracts are clearly outlined, with no hidden fees. We tailor your service plan to meet the particular needs of your property, so you can rest assured that your landscaping will look its best year-round. Getting started is simple:

  • Request a Quote

    Contact our office using this online form or call the office directly. We will ask for details about your property, the kind of services you require, and your budget requirements. If you fill out our form, you can expect a call from our representatives within one business day.

  • 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. For design projects and more complex landscaping contracts, we will visit your property to gather information. If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

  • Estimate

    For our maintenance services, we will prepare a proposal within 3 business days of our first meeting and send it to you for review and approval. 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.

  • Your Custom Plan

    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.

  • Agreement & Work Begins

    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. Our team will be available for any questions you may have after each maintenance service visit, and a comprehensive walk-through will be conducted with you upon completion of your installation project.

  • Follow-up Care

    For maintenance contracts, you can expect monthly follow-ups to ensure your satisfaction. For installation services, we will reach out to you after the work is complete to provide follow-up care recommendations and service.
