Mowing Services

  1. Lawns will be mowed as necessary to maintain a well-kept appearance. The final fall mowing will be at a lower height to help prepare the turf for winter.
  2. We trim along all walkways, patios, buildings, landscape beds, trees, driveways and fences.
  3. We then blow all clippings from all walks, patios, and driveways.
  4. Your grounds will be policed at the time of mowing in order to maintain a clean top quality appearance.

Proper mowing and watering are vital to a healthy lawn, they help to promote deep root growth and discourage weeds and disease. After the initial spring clean up, all lawn clippings are mulched back into the lawn, returning vital nutrients to your lawn. Mulching, if done properly, does not contribute to thatch build-up. Mulching is also good for the environment. Watering should be done slowly, deeply moistening the soil, and as infrequently as possible to promote deep root growth. Your lawn needs about 1½ inches of water per week.


Fertilization and weed Control picFertilizing and Weed Control

This service includes spot spraying on an as needed basis to control weeds in your lawn and unsightly weeds in and along mulched areas and hardscapes – such as your parking lot, along curbs, rock gardens, etc.
  2. The first application is a combination fertilizer and pre-emergent granular application to jump start growth and to control crab grass and other weeds.
  3. The second application is a granular fertilizer and liquid broadleaf herbicide to control post emergent weeds – such as dandelions.
  4. The third application is a granular fertilizer. If necessary, a second application of liquid broadleaf weed control is applied.
  5. The final application is a granular fall fertilizer to prepare your lawn for the stress of winter.

AeratingAerating
Aerating is a simple process of perforating the soil with small holes, which allows water, air, and fertilizer to reach the roots. Lawns with heavily compacted soil or severe thatch should be done twice a year; all others should be done once a year. The best times to aerate your lawn are in the late spring and early fall when the lawn is growing vigorously.

De-thatching
Thatch is a dense layer of non-decomposed leaves, roots and stems that gradually forms between the soil and the base of the plant. The overuse of quick releasing high nitrogen fertilizers, over watering, plus soil with high clay content all contribute to thatch buildup. Thatch reduces the effectiveness of fertilizers and pesticides and creates an environment for insects and lawn diseases. Dethatching should only be performed when absolutely necessary. The best time to dethatch is in late summer or early fall when the lawn is dry and still growing vigorously. Dethatching should be immediately followed by an aggressive over seeding/reseeding and fertilization program.

  1. De-thatching of lawn with power broom or tine rake.
  2. Power blow all debris from walks and driveways.
  3. Mow lawn and vacuum all debris.
  4. Disposal of all debris off site.
