Any lawn can have a wide variety of insect populations at any given time. Some insects, like ants, can cause damage to yards and harm children or pets. Ants can live above the soil level in the plants or thatch layer or below the soil level in the mounds. Often times, ant damage can be tricky to spot. It can appear similar to chemical burn, disease problems or drought. So, it is best to have an ant control program in place before a problem starts. Contact us today, We can build a custom program to address your lawn care needs.
Aeration is one of the best things that we do as preventative medicine for lawns. Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, water, and nutrients to reach your lawn roots. It is also the best way to help correct the problem of excessive thatch build-up. Additionally, aeration of the lawn improves drainage and the take-up of water by the grass and it encourages deep root growth. Overseeding your lawn will help to fill in sparse areas in your lawn where the grass has died off. Our professionals can top dress, aerate, and overseed your lawn resulting in a more lush and healthy lawn which will make your yard the envy of your street.
Dethatching is essential to maintain a lush, healthy lawn. Thatch is the layer of built-up plant material between the green top growth and the roots of grass plants. Thatch develops naturally as lawn grasses grow and slough off roots, shoots and leaves. Some thatch helps protect the roots, but excessive thatch prevents moisture, oxygen and nutrients from penetrating the soil.
Fertilization and Weed Control (available with yearly contract)
Lawns that receive chemical treatments are greener, more weed-free, and healthier. Our customized early season applications will give your lawn a great head-start for the growing season. Our special mixture of weed-killing formula eliminates weeds more quickly and still manages to remain environmentally friendly. Since your lawn’s needs change over the course of a year, we have created a comprehensive plan that provides just the care needed at each point. Organic programs available. Call us for more details.
