“I had the pre-pay 7 application of fertilizer & weed control last year and the results were great. I’d like it again this year.” Kyle – Woodbury, MN
What to Expect:
- We notify you by phone before any application.
- Upon arrival, we ensure no one is on your property. We then place “Stay Off Lawn” signs in visible locations.
- The lawn fertilizer applied is granular in form, giving your yard triple the nutrients compared to liquid applications.
- Granular fertilizer greens up lawns and promotes horizontal growth, resulting in a thicker, fuller lawn.
- After each application all pellets are blown off sidewalks, driveways, and patios, leaving behind a clean and refreshed property.
Weed Control Application:
- Our weed control application treats all broadleaf weeds including dandelion, thistle, creeping charlie, clover, and more.
- Applying weed control separate from fertilizer gives special attention to harder to kill weeds.
The cost of your lawn care is determined by the size of your lawn and the number of applications you want, along with many other factors. On an annual service plan, the average Minnesota homeowner can expect to invest anywhere from $300-$500 annually.

Best Time to Fertilize Lawn in MN: Spring, Summer, and Fall
For healthy, green grass it’s best to follow a lawn fertilizer schedule to work within three-seasons in Minnesota. Ideally, we start your lawn care in the early spring. We then provide regular applications throughout summer and into late fall. This three-season schedule is a great way to get that neighbor-envious lawn you deserve!
How Many Applications Do I Need?
The number of applications you need depends on your desired lawn care goals. For optimal results, we recommend our Gold Package (outlined below), consisting of seven applications starting in early spring and going through late fall. However, not all lawns need that level of service. This is why we offer smaller and customized packages, along with individual applications. Call the experts at Warner’s today; we’ll figure out the best program for you!
Minnesota Lawn Fertilization Schedule
Warner’s lawn care experts understand that every lawn is different. That’s why we’ve developed a wide range of fertilizer and weed killer treatment programs for our customers. You can choose from our Gold Package (seven applications – see below), our Silver Package (six applications), or our Bronze Package (five applications). We can also develop a custom package designed specifically for your lawn. It will be designed for your needs only, and maybe the most cost-effective package for you. Ask us about our commercial fertilizing services.
Our Gold Package is a seven-step program that guarantees great results for your lawn:
Step 1. Early Spring Lawn Fertilizer/Crabgrass Pre-emergent
Fast release granular fertilizer is applied to take advantage of our upper Midwest’s wet springs. This gives your lawn a quick green-up. The application of crabgrass pre-emergent creates a barrier to prevent crabgrass seeds from germinating.
Step 2. Mid Spring Weed Control
Liquid weed control is applied to remove broadleaf weeds that compete with your turf for valuable nutrients.
Step 3. Late Spring Lawn Fertilizer/Crabgrass Pre-emergent
To continue the greening process and further thicken your turf, a 25% slow-release granular fertilizer is applied. The second round of crabgrass pre-emergent is also applied.
Step 4. Mid-Summer Weed Spray Control
Liquid weed control is applied once more.
Step 5. Mid-Summer Lawn Fertilizer
100% slow-release granular fertilizer is applied to maintain the benefits of the late spring lawn fertilizer. This formula lasts up to three months, eliminating the possibility of burning up your lawn in the heat of summer.
Step 6. Early Fall Weed Control
Liquid weed control is spot-sprayed throughout your lawn to eliminate any broadleaf weeds that have emerged since the mid-summer weed control application.
Step 7. Late Fall Lawn Fertilizer
Fast release granular fertilizer is applied to encourage your lawn to take in nutrients and store them in their root system. When the snow melts the following spring, your lawn will already have fertilizer in place for quicker green-up.
What is the result of this 7-step program? You’ll have the greenest and healthiest lawn on the block!
