That lush, green lawn is the foundation for all your landscaping plans. It highlights your home and showcases every beautiful tree and shrub. Without it, your landscape wouldn’t be complete, and your home wouldn’t feel like home. 

However, your grass is more than just a pretty face. It has a practical side that offers a variety of advantages. First of all, it holds the soil in place, which not only offers erosion protection, it also reduces the amount of dust and dirt that you track into your house. Grass reduces glare and reflected heat, which can help you control the temperature in your home. It provides a soft landing place for your family, which reduces the risk of injuries as you work or play outside. Like other plants, grass absorbs pollutants and greenhouse gasses for a healthier environment. 

A customized lawn fertilization and care program ensures you can enjoy all of these benefits on your property. At Better View Landscapes, our 5-Application Lawn Care Program delivers real results by supporting your lawn throughout the season, and we work with Northampton, Massachusetts weather and environmental conditions in mind. Every year, we adjust our program to meet the current needs of local lawns. We have three plans to choose from, and each one includes high-grade fertilizers, advice from industry experts, and university extension service publications, so you have a clear understanding of how to best care for your grass. 

It’s time to enjoy a healthier, happier lawn and reduce the hassle often associated with DIY lawn care. Contact us to get started—you can save 10% on your program if you sign up before April 1st.

The Benefits of Customized Lawn Fertilization

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to lawn care. At Better View Landscapes, we address the unique needs of your soil and grass, which is why we start with three distinct lawn fertilization programs that can be further customized to meet your needs. Start today—the benefits are far-reaching:

  • Healthy Growth: If your grass struggles to grow, it may be lacking the necessary nutrition. Fertilization gives your grass the nutrients it needs to thrive.
  • Fewer Weeds: Weeds steal vital nutrients from your grass and essentially choke your lawn out. Typical fertilizers include ingredients that stunt weed growth while bolstering grass health. Well fed, healthy grass grows strong and thick, which also helps prevent weeds from taking over. If you’ve been battling weeds in your yard, the solution might be as simple as lawn fertilization with weed control.
  • Improved Soil Quality: Fertilizers add nutrients to the soil, which improves the composition and texture of the soil over time. No matter what landscaping projects you take on in the future, they will be improved by having a foundation of healthy soil.
  • Pest Resistance: Healthy grass is better able to fend off a pest infestation whether it’s from our Complete program or our Organic, healthy turf stands up better to the pest stressors.

Take charge of your lawn and grass health with a customized lawn fertilization program.

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 a year to year (and even application to application) to match the current needs of lawns in our growing region.

Clients Appreciate Our All-Inclusive Approach and In-House Expertise

Our landscaping services are second to none in New England, but don’t take our word for it! Take a look at our reviews to see what our loyal customers have to say.

When we bought our home, the back acre had been cleared years ago but not maintained, so we had a thick patch of thorny growth and grapevine that made it impassible to the nearby forest. Initially we just wanted it all cleared, but Tory had some great ideas to make it into something far more beautiful. Now we have a meandering path through wildflower meadow, a fire pit, a fruit orchard, and a playing field that has completely changed our yard. Would highly recommend Better View for your design needs!

I’ve been working with Better View Landscapes for several years now.  They have a great system of communication by email. The work is done quickly and with attention to detail.  My lawn looks healthy and tidy.  I keep bees there, and Better View Landscapes uses only products that are not harmful to them.  I also count on Better View for snowplowing in the winter.  They’ve always gotten the job done well.  Highly recommended.
