Aeration

Aeration is the process of lifting cores of soil to the surface of the lawn area. This process breaks up the thatch layer and mixes soil with it to speed up natural decomposition.

Benefits of aeration
  • Increases air, water and nutrient movement to the roots.
  • Speeds up the decomposition of thatch.
  • Relieves compacted (hardened) soil which allows for better absorption of water, fertilizers and other treatments.
  • Stimulates new growth.
  • Increases tolerance to heat and cold.

Full Lawn Renovation

When your lawn is overrun with weeds and undesirable grasses. It is best to clear the area of all vegataion and start fresh.

This is a two stage process.

First we will closely examine the effected area and determine the exact problems that lead to the troubled area. Next, we treat the selected area with a process that will eliminate all growing weeds/grasses. This treatment will leave no residuals that will interfere with future growth.

After 10 days to two weeks, we will then return to aerate, de-thatch, slit-seed and any additional treatments as determined at the time of the initial visit.

Grassy Weed Control

Crabgrass, Foxtail and Goosegrass are controlable with the proper treatment program.

Bent grass and Nimblewill are not controlable and if impacting a large portion of your lawn may require Lawn Renovation.

Preemergence herbicides control crabgrass by preventing seedling crabgrass from becoming established. To be effective, they must be applied before the crabgrass seed germinates.

Lawn Insect/Pest Control

Our insecticide control is primarily applied during the summer months with our application 2 & 3. The main purpose of the insecticide is to control grass feeding insects that can damage your lawn such as the sod webworm and chinchbug. However, the added plus is that it also controls fleas and ticks. Extra protection for you and your pets.

Lime/pH Balancing

Lime "sweetens" your soil. In areas where soil is naturally "sour" (acid), lime is extremely important for growing healthy turf. Lime helps to improve lawn color and density, helps to control thatch, and increases root development.

Our lime application helps to keep the chemistry of your soil in balance so that you can have, and enjoy, a thicker, greener, healthier lawn.

We recommend periodic liming for acid soils.

Mole Control

Just after spring has turned the corner and you are surveying your lawn for the year ahead, you spot them. A maze of hills spreading across your prime lawn area right where the kids like to play. The dreaded mole. besides being a nuisance, they can also be the cause of yard accidents by tripping yourself, a family member or your guests when their tunnels collapse when stepped on.

While there are dozens of methods attempting to control moles, our proven process is one of only a few that are truly effective. We will examine your lawn to determine where they are active and bait the tunnels with a proven bait that replicates their natural food, worms and grubs. We will return after treatment to verify that they have been eradicated.

Also keep in mind that moles may be a sign of grubs or other insects.

Preventive Grub Control

The application of a residual insecticide is made to a turf area in late spring through early summer to control the new generation of grub larvae hatching from eggs in late July through August.

Tree & Shrub

Landscape trees and shrubs generally require little to no fertilization.  However, there are a host of insect pests that often need attention.  Treatment of these problems is handled on an individual basis.  Some insects can injure many plants in the landscape while other insects are host-plant specific.  Many landscape plants have common and/or predictable insect pest problems which require specific methods, materials, and timing.

Thatch Removal

Many lawns have some thatch. It is when a lawn has too much thatch that problems occur. Thatch is the layer of living and undecayed dead organic material that lies on top of the soil. It is made up of surface roots, stems and crowns of grass plants.

Studies have shown that grass clippings left on the lawn do not significantly increase thatch. When thatch accumulates to over one-half inch, it often becomes a home to various types of insects and fungus spores which can damage or kill your lawn. Thatch also prevents water, fertilizer and air form reaching the soil and grass roots. This can cause the death of grass plants and serious thinning of the lawn.
