Core aeration is the mechanical process of pulling finger sized plugs, about 3 inches long, from the lawn. The resulting holes allow air, water and nutrients to more easily penetrate to the root zone, stimulating new crown growth and root development. The process also aids in thatch reduction and reduction of soil compaction and is an ideal service to have done prior to any over seeding or reseeding. We generally do aerations in the Spring and/or Fall. Bi-yearly aeration is occasionally recommended for problematic soil conditions, turf damage or reseeding requirements.
We offer a simple and effective over-seeding service in conjuncture with our aerations. After a thorough aeration is done, we carefully apply high quality rye grass/fescue blend grass seed over the entire lawn, taking care to keep the seed out of beds and off the sidewalks and driveways. A lot of the seed works its way into the aeration holes and the rest covers the thin and bare area in the lawn. This aids in the germination process and, in most cases, eliminates the need to top-dress the seed.
Lime corrects soil pH (sweetens the soil), improves turf color, helps with disease resistance and inhibits moss development. It also increases root development and increases microbial activity in the soil. A lime application is recommended once a year.
We are experts at diagnosing and treating all types of turf diseases. We will figure out what is causing the damage in your lawn and provide the proper fungicide and advice to correct the problem.
Again, we are trained experts at diagnosing and treating all types of turf insect infestations. From crane fly larvae, to bill bugs, to cutworms and many other newer problem insects, we have the knowledge and materials to control anything that is damaging your lawn.
Weed Control Only
For larger turf areas (minimum of 10,000 square feet) we can provide an herbicide only application for weed control. This service can be done once a year, but is most effective when done on a two or three times a year schedule, with applications in the Spring (2) and Fall (1), when turf if not under drought stress.
Moss Control Only
Again, for turf areas of a minimum of 10,000 square feet, we offer an application for moss control only. Applications can be done in the late Fall, Winter, or early Spring, when temperatures are lower and adequate irrigation from rain is most likely.
Weed & Moss Control
This option for 10,000 square feet plus turf areas provides extremely effective control for both of these persistent turf problems and can be done in the Fall, Winter, and early Spring. Bi-annual applications are recommended for maximum effectiveness.
