One of the most time consuming home maintenance practices a home owner faces and is also one of the most important. Cutting the lawn on a regular basis and making sure it is cut at the right height at the right time of the season is very important. When a lawn is cut too short, root systems can be exposed to drought, disease and eventually weeds. When a lawn is maintained properly, root systems are protected and thatch layers are reduced, promoting a thick dense turf that is difficult for weeds to thrive in. This weekly service starts in May and ends in November.
The most important reason you top-dress your lawn is to improve existing soil. Top-dressing involves laying down a fine level of soil on top of your lawn consisting of a mixture of sand, loam, and peat. It also stimulates the growth of new blades and makes your lawn look denser, which in return will help block out weed growth. Combining top-dressing and core aeration is an excellent way to get essential nutrients to the root systems and change existing soil composition. Top-dressing can also be used to level your lawn, eliminating depressions and bumps. This service is completed in spring and fall.
Core Aeration is the process of removing small plugs of thatch from the lawn to improve soil aeration. This service promotes health and reduces maintenance. Our Aeration service is completed in the spring and fall.
