Trying times for Turf Grass along Colorado's Front Range

the water that we have available?
First... don't neglect the nutritional needs of your lawn!

We have switched our entire residential and commercial lawn
care program to a product called...Meister. Meister is a programmed
release fertilizer. The nitrogen particles are coated with a polymer
that breaks down slowly over time. It literally spoon-feeds the turf...
all season without causing water hungry flushes of growth. Steady...
constant growth also reduces clipping and encourages strong root growth. A
strong, healthy root system also helps to reduce drought stress. Because of
the programmed release properties of Meister... it does not burn the grass,
and when it's applied... you don't have to rush out and water it in. The
lawns entire year of nutrients are applied in a single application!
It's an ideal product... for use during water restrictions!
Meister is only available thru Lawn Care Professionals. For more information on Meister Lawn Care... Contact Jones Tree & Lawn Care at: 303-431-8132 or visit
