Cultivating a Beautiful
Normal activities such as heavy snows and rain, severe summer heat,
mowing and other outdoor activities cause compaction of soil as well as
thatch build up.
Hard, compacted soil and thatch take away your lawns ability to
breathe. The best way to relieve compacted soil is by performing
Aeration will open up your soil and help control thatch.
Thousands of growth pockets will be created to help catch water, air and
fertilizer as well as increase rooting. The holes created by
aeration are perfect openings in which grass seed can lodge and
germinate. Be sure to use quality seed that will compliment the
grass that you already have.
Lawn cutting is a service we provide not only to retain a well-kept
beautiful lawn but a lawn cut frequently is a healthier lawn. Your
lawn should be mowed often so that no more than 1/3 of the grass blade
is removed when mowed, leaving the grass at a length of 2-1/2 to 3
inches. This will decrease drought and put your lawn less at risk
to insects, disease, and weeds.
Spring fertilization will feed your lawn with a slow release feeding
of nitrogen, phosphorous and potash. Combined with the aeration,
the fall fertilization will ensure a solid growth of both the shoot and
root of your lawn.
For lawns with large thatch build-up, power raking will help open the
root zone to water, air and fertilizer. It will also allow area
for new grass to grow up through a "choking" lawn.
Garden Bed Installation and
Spring is the perfect time to clean up perennial garden
beds. Many perennials may be cut back just above the ground
after a hard frost. Mulching garden beds can be done after
the ground has frozen. Mulch is especially beneficial to
newly planted beds.
Small Tree and Shrub Care
For small trees up to 8 ft. and shrubs, we provide trimming and/or
pruning to help improve the appearance of your property.
Pine Needle Clean-up
We provide pine needle clean-up for lawns, garden beds, and natural
areas to improve appearance and for fire prevention.
Most of you know what a vital ingredient this service is to a
consistently healthy and vigorous lawn. Done in the fall when your
lawn's root system is at its highest activity, deep core aeration will
create thousands of growth pockets. These will help your lawn's
root system to expand and reduce thatch buildup as well as let
fertilizer reach the root zone and air flow to invigorate your lawn.
Disc Cutting & Overseeding
This service to your lawn consists of using a machine with vertical
blades that cuts 1-1/2 to 2-inch slits into your lawn. A constant
flow of premium grass seed is dropped directly into the groove created
by the disc cutter. This is beneficial to do every few
years. The disc cut itself helps relieve your lawn of choking
debris without the dramatic tearing of a power rake and the new seed
will thicken your lawn, helping it resist disease, weeds and extreme
heat. Over seeding your lawn will help keep - or get back to -
that fresh sod look.
Revive™ soil conditioner will help
the soil to take up water and use it more efficiently. This is
especially helpful for hard compacted soils. It will add organic
matter back to your soil helping to increase its vitality.
Remember, healthy soil promotes a healthy lawn.
A broadleaf weed spray application will help kill weeds such as
dandelion, chickweed and clover. We use a practice known as
"spot spraying" which reduces the amount of pesticide actually
used by only spraying the weeds - not the entire lawn. A
broadleaf weed spray will only kill those weeds which are present, it
cannot prevent new weeds from invading your lawn by way of weed seeds.
Pre-emergent Weed Control
Pre-emergent weed control kills weed seeds before they
germinate. Timing of application is critical for pre-emergence
because if the seed has already germinated with warmer weather, the
application won't work. Pre-emergent applications therefore should
generally be done in early spring between February and April.
With the high winds blowing, all sorts of debris and pine needles can
get caught and and build up in your gutters. We added this service
to meet the needs of our mountain residential customers.
