The Best Lawn Fertilization and Lawn Treatments in Chicago

Chicago is the third most populous city in the US, so there’s certainly no shortage of things to do. From the Field Museum to the Magnificent Mile, the possibilities are endless. So why waste time with lawn fertilization?

Let LawnStarter handle it for you. We make booking lawn fertilization and other lawn treatments easy.

Cost of Lawn Fertilization in Chicago

On average, lawn fertilization in the Windy City costs fall on the higher end of the national range. Nationally, fertilization costs range between $103 to $343.

What affects the cost of fertilization?

  • Size of your yard (larger yards will cost more)
  • Number of treatments (more treatments lowers per-treatment price)
  • Type of fertilizer used (liquid or granular, fast or slow-release, etc.)
  • Lower cost often if bundled with other services

When Is the Best Time to Fertilize Your Lawn?

According to the University of Illinois, the best time to fertilize your lawn is between late summer and early fall (August 15 to September 15). They recommend three pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet of lawn in full sun spread out across three applications depending on the lawn’s density:

  • Low-density lawns: One time (late summer to early fall)
  • Low- to medium-density lawns: Two times (once in spring; once in late summer to early fall)
  • Moderate to high-density lawns: Three times (once in spring; once in late summer to early fall; once in late season [one week following the final mowing of the season])
  • High-density lawns: Four times (once in spring; once in early summer; once in late summer to early fall; once in late season)

Lawn Fertilization: DIY or Hire a Pro?

Many people enjoy working in their yards. If you want to do your own fertilization treatment, you’ll have to buy the fertilizer and a spreader, and if you buy liquid fertilizer, you’ll need to do some math to get the correct mix of elements. Getting the wrong result can severely damage your lawn, and you’ll have to either buy more fertilizer or pay someone to come and fix it.

On the other hand, LawnStarter’s pros guarantee your lawn will be fertilized properly the first time, saving you the hassle of buying and storing materials and equipment.

Other Lawn Treatment Services in Chicago

In addition to fertilizing your lawn up to four times a year, add the following lawn treatment services to make your lawn the envy of the neighborhood:

  • Mowing (removes waste so your lawn can absorb fertilizer better)
  • Weed control (prevents you from wasting fertilizer on weeds)
  • Mosquito control (nobody likes to see mosquitoes in their yard)
  • Seeding/hydroseeding/overseeding (for new or thicker turf)
  • Aeration (helps nutrients travel from the top of the soil to the roots)
  • Dethatching (breaks thatch and ensures fertilizer gets to the top layer of the soil)

Most lawn care companies offer services like mowing, lawn fertilization, and weed control, and many offer bundles to save you money.

At LawnStarter, we connect you with trusted, vetted, and experienced professionals who will perform lawn care and lawn fertilization jobs at an affordable price. It doesn’t matter whether you’re in the city or one of Chicago’s suburbs, you’ll benefit from our pros.

Booking lawn fertilization is easy and frees up your time to do the things you enjoy.
