Fertilization

Depending upon your turf grass type and the composition of your soil, fertilization is recommended in the spring, summer, and fall. In the spring and summer, it gives your grass extra nutrients for rapid, healthy growth and encourages dense turf. In the fall, it can help strengthen your turf roots allowing your grass to get extra nutrients and protection in preparation for its dormancy period. Fertilization works best with a proper understanding of your soil composition. To have one of our trained and licensed specialists analyze your soil and advise you on a fertilization plan, Contact us today!

Dethatching

Dethatching through aeration, verticutting, and additional customized treatments is vital to allow your grass to absorb nutrients and oxygen. It promotes healthy growth too. Contact us to find out more about this vital lawn service.

Winterization

Even though your lawn is dormant in winter, it still requires nutrients and light in order to survive cold weather. If the weather is wet and cold for a long time then you may get winter kill. To avoid winter kill, you need to strengthen the roots of your grass and make sure they have enough nutrients to survive winter dormancy. The best way to do this is through winterization and a special root fertilization treatment. Contact us for more information.

Soil Correction & Testing

Did you know that the pH of your front and back yard may be entirely different? Soil testing is the first step in achieving a healthy lawn. If you don’t know your soil type, you can’t effectively fertilize your lawn. Weak soil attracts weeds and fungus too and cannot support healthy turf grass long term. Soil correction is the cornerstone of lawn care.

Contact us to have one of our trained specialists test your soil. If needed, we can then offer you options for correcting and optimizing your soil.

Disease Treatment & Prevention

Brownpatch, gray leaf spot… fungal diseases can destroy your grass, and some turfgrasses and soils are more susceptible to disease than others. Did you know that most lawn disease starts in your soil? This is why having us test and correct your soil is key to growing a healthy lawn. Also, we offer specialized disease treatments to heal your lawn and a disease prevention program.

Lawn Pests & Weed Control

Chinchbugs, mole crickets, army worms, grubworms, and sod webworms… insects can cause year round problems, destroying grass roots and causing rapid damage to your lawn. We offer a comprehensive lawn pest control system.

Weeds also can take over your yard, particularly if left unchecked. We offer a robust pre-emergent and post-emergent treatment plan to keep your lawn weed-free and healthy. Contact us to find out how we can keep your yard pest and weed free!

Growth Regulator Program

With our growth regulator program, you may only have to cut your lawn every 3-5 weeks! The time frame depends upon the kind of turgrass you have in your yard. Not only does the growth regulator program save you money and time, but it also enhances the overall strength and stress tolerance of your lawn while giving the turf-grass a deeper more vibrant green color. Due to the boost in lateral growth of your turf it will be denser than before allowing it to choke out weeds with little to no problem. Seems too good to be true? How about the benefit of getting a longer lasting residual out of your fungicide treatments? Because the vertical growth of the grass is reduced and it doesn’t have to be mowed as often fungicides stay on their target area up to a third longer.

And there is one MORE benefit of this program. It will cause the turf-grass to store a healthier amount of carbohydrates for the dormant season for protection against the cold weather. Because your turf has such a stockpile of food, it will go through what is called a growth surge right out of the gate during the spring and rapidly green up… giving your lawn a great headstart to the growing season!
