We can bring new life to your lawn...
SOIL TESTING: Is the best way to know what your lawn soil is lacking or is not lacking in for vital nutrients. It also allows us to determine the acidity of the soil meaning is the soil acidic or alkaline which is called the pH. Our cool season grasses grow best at a soil pH of 6.5 to 7. Soil samples are collected from your lawn and sent to a lab for accurate diagnosis. Once the lab results are returned we can then begin to make any necessary corrective nutrient or pH applications to improve the soil chemistry.
CORE AERATION: This important process uses hollow tines to remove core plugs up to a depth of three inches that are a combination of thatch, grass and topsoil from the base of the lawn and deposits them on top of the turf. The many benefits of core aeration as shown below helps to relief soil compaction while improving better absorption of water, oxygen and nutrients. In addition core aeration aids in root stimulation creating a deeper root system. We typically perform this service in the fall but it is possible to aerate in the spring under the right circumstances.
OVER SEEDING: For lawns that need seeding to fill in thin or bare areas, we provide a full seeding service using professional grade grass seed and starter fertilizer to get the new seedlings off to a fast, strong start. Combined with core aeration, over seeding is a great way to help thicken up your existing lawn while adding new & improved grass seed varieties in the fall. Upon completion of core aeration we broadcast our proven premium select grass seed blend over the entire lawn. For best results watering the lawn after seeding is completed is recommended.
YELLOW NUTSEDGE CONTROL: Ever wonder what those fast growing lime green colored grass patches taking over your lawn is. Well its not grass at all. Its called yellow nutsedge and its actually a sedge plant. Most commonly found in marshes or open field areas has now adapted itself to your lawn and is extremely difficult to manage without a specialized herbicide product and a management plan in place. We can help control this nuisance weed with a customized treatment plan.
SECOND PRE-EMERGENT CRABGRASS TREATMENT: For superior longer lasting protection against crabgrass we can apply an additional pre-emergent crabgrass treatment in late spring.
