Maximum Pest & Fertilization

Lawn Care Programs

South Florida is home to a variety of damaging insects and diseases that can wreak havoc on your lawn. St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns are particularly susceptible to damage from these pests. Fortunately, there are a variety of effective spraying and fertilization services available to help keep your lawn looking its best.



Fleas and ticks can be a major issue in South Florida, hiding in lawn grasses where they can attack people and pets. That's why we offer flea and tick spraying in addition to our standard pest control options. Let us keep those biting insects at bay!



Every plant's health depends on the soil in which it's rooted, including the availability of soil nutrients, organic matter, and living microorganisms. Our fertilization programs replace lost nutrients and increase biological activity in the soil.


weed control

Not all weeds are the same, and not all treatments are equal. The lawn care experts at Maximum Pest and Fertilization know that broadleaf, sedge, and spurge each respond to different treatments. Our custom weed control options reflect this.


Lawn Fungus Control

Did you know that some herbicide treatments can encourage fungal growth? You can trust Maximum Pest and Fertilization to offer the proper treatment at the right time of year. We control fungal infections, not invite them into your lawn.

We know when lawn pests are most active and how to treat each of them. Our approach to pest control is tailored to focus on the specific pest(s) causing damage, rather than a broad-spectrum treatment that will be environmentally toxic and ineffective in the long run.

Customized Lawn Fertilization and Pest Control for South Florida

While we love the tropical climate of South Florida, it means that caring for your lawn is a year-round task. Your lawn faces unique challenges from heat, humidity, weeds, salt intrusion, insects, fungi, and other diseases. Maximum Pest and Fertilization has the expertise, knowledge, and experience to keep your lawn at maximum health.

We start every treatment with a thorough assessment and diagnosis so we can tailor our services to your lawn’s needs. Additionally, we focus our treatments on which pest or turf ailment is currently active and then target it specifically. For example, lawn insects are treated in the spring and summer months when they are most active, making treatments much more effective. We don’t use broad-spectrum pesticides or herbicides, opting to tailor our treatment to the specific type of pest or weed.

The Usual Suspects

Be on the lookout for these common lawn and turf issues. If you spot any of the signs of a problem, call Maximum Pest and Fertilization at 954-776-4519 for a free, no-obligation quote!



Caused by the Rhizoctonia species fungus, brown patch is most common when night temperatures stay above 68°F, during extended periods of high humidity, or when lawns stay wet for prolonged periods.

Gray leaf


These gray, fuzzy patches rapidly coalesce to produce large, irregular areas of damaged turf. Left untreated, these can spread quickly to cover your entire lawn area.



Root rot is a fungal disease that causes weak, brown, dead patches in turfgrass. Lawns afflicted with this disease need professional care to help them recover.


Sod Webworms

Found in lawn thatch, just above the soil, sod webworms spin a light webbing and feed on the undersides of grass blades. They're most prevalent in areas that receive direct sunlight.


Chinch Bugs

Chinch bugs suck sap out of grass blades, causing wilting. At the same time, they inject a substance that interrupts water movement through the turfgrass plant, causing it to die.



Grubs feed on turfgrass roots, leaving lawns with wilted and brown patches. This insect can cause severe damage when a significant population of grubs invades your yard.

Contact us for a lawn assessment if you're not sure what's damaging your lawn. In addition to any treatment your lawn may need, our lawn care experts can provide guidance on avoiding turf infestations in the future.

The most important components of lawn care include: watering, mowing, and fertilization.

Watering a South Florida Lawn

Overwatering a lawn is a common way to stress it out. Too much water can weaken your lawn, which allows lawn insects, diseases, and fungi to invade.

Your lawn will tell you when it's thirsty! Signs your lawn needs watering include:

  • Folded-over leaf blades
  • Grass that appears bluish gray 
  • Visible footprints in the grass - your lawn should spring back when walked on

Watering too often will result in grass with a shallow root system. In contrast, watering less frequently for more extended periods will encourage deep-root growth. This can encourage your grass to reach deeper for water on its own and help your grass develop a robust root system to help your lawn survive high traffic and drought.

Most South Florida lawns need about ½ inch of water during each session. Water slowly and don’t saturate your lawn. This can cause the fertilizer to run off, potentially contaminating groundwater.

Mowing a South Florida Lawn

Don’t cut more than ⅓ of the blade’s length. Scalping your lawn can stress it out and make it more vulnerable to pests and disease.

Fertilizing a South Florida lawn

In South Florida, you can fertilize your lawn at nearly any time, as long as it's actively growing. You always want to fertilize your lawn in the growing season.

A healthy lawn can tolerate some pest activity, so pesticide treatments are not always recommended. However, a pesticide application may be necessary if a pest is present and identified.

If you have a lawn pest issue, contact the pest control professionals at Maximum Pest and Fertilization. Our years of experience treating South Florida lawns for pests and diseases can make all the difference for your lawn.

Regular maintenance, such as correctly watering, mowing, and fertilizing your lawn, is the best way to prevent pests. Proper care boosts your lawn's natural immunity and creates a less inviting environment for pests and diseases. A healthy lawn deters pests, weeds, and diseases.

In addition to proper lawn care practices, you may want to consider professional lawn care to monitor for pest issues like fire ants, armyworms, sod webworms, chinch bugs, and fungus.
