Fertilization program: $52 + tax per application
early spring- fertilize lawn and apply preemergence for crab grass
spring - fertilize lawn and apply broadleaf weedkiller
summer -fertilize lawn and apply surface insect control
late summer- fertilize lawn and apply subsurface insect control
fall - fertilize lawn and apply broadleaf weedkiller

Is there always a bunch of weeds in your lawn? I think broadleaf weed killer (weed and feed) is over used. However, it's probably not much, if any, cheaper to apply just the fertilizer than the fertilizer plus weed killer.

How many trees do you have dropping leaves? A better question would be, how deep are the leaves?

I can clean up most of my leaves when I mow. I do have to empty the catch bag more often. Are the leaves really deep? That may stop them from being able to do it when they mow. They do bag the grass clippings, right? If they don't that could be the reason they can't use the mower to get the leaves. Do they rake them by hand or use a machine?
