Your soil supplies some of the nutrients that turf-grass needs. Most soils are not able to
provide all of them during the entire growing season. A healthy and actively-growing lawn
uses a great deal of energy. Fertilizer helps your lawn stay healthy by:
- Promoting new leaf and root growth.
- Aiding in the recovery from foot traffic and pest damage.
- Reducing and controlling weeds.
- Replacing nutrient lost to leaching and grass clipping removal.
Lawn weeds are present in almost every lawn. When your lawn is weak, it can have a much
more difficult time fighting off weeds, pests, and diseases that would love to take its place!
If you have an existing lawn (most of us do), your lawn is probably already established and
therefore you have to deal with what's there. To understand weeds, you need to realize
that they are simply a part of lawn maintenance like mowing, watering, fertilizing, aerating,
etc. Weeds can also come from water runoff, wind, your neighbor's yard, pests and pets,
and even you! In short, they seem to find their way to your lawn in one way or

Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create
growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn. Annual or semi-annual aeration is advised for all lawns
on heavy clay soils, those with a thatch buildup and any lawn that needs to be "thickened up "
When lawn renovation is needed, slice seeding can often solve the problem quickly, easily, and little mess or bother. Our system slices through the sod and plants
new seed directly into the soil, eliminating the need to strip the existing sod, till the yard, or provide a straw cover.
Thatch is a layer of grass stems, roots, clippings, and debris that settle on the ground and either slowly decompose and/or accumulate over time. Thatch buildup is
commonly found in lawns where grass has grown tall, mulch is frequently left, and lawns that have never been aerated. Thatch is most common in warm-weather
and with creeping grasses such as Bermuda, Zoyia, Bent grass, and Kentucky Bluegrass. If you have these grasses, you will usually have to dethatch more often
than with other grasses. Dethatching is the process of removing thatch from your lawn.
Insect & Tick Control:
Two of the more worrisome ticks found in North America are the American dog tick and the deer tick. The American dog tick feeds on a variety of warmblooded
animals, including dogs and humans. It has been know to transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other diseases from animals to people, and can even cause
paralysis in children. The deer tick is much smaller than the American dog tick (slightly larger than a pin head), and is responsible for the spread of Lyme disease
among humans. We can help to keep ticks out of your yard with pesticide treatments, paying special attention to your lawn and shrubbery.
We will be happy to provide an inspection of your property to determine the best strategy for keeping ticks out of your yard.
