Topdressing

Our new premium service for Fall 2021!

For a superior lawn, the importance of  having quality soil conditions cannot be overstated.  Many lawns, especially new construction, have little to no topsoil, and what is there is frequently substandard.  Our Topdressing  package is designed to offer long-term benefits by ehancing your lawn's growing potential.  The program includes:

  • Performing another aeration to open up the soil and root zone

  • Using a mulch-blowing machine to spread a layer (approximately 1/2 inch) of finely-screened topsoil/compost mixture that will add both valuable topsoil and additional beneficial organic material for your lawn.

  • Injecting a blend of  improved seed varieties of turfgrasses for insect and disease resistance.

Over time, the soil cores and topdress blend will "dissolve" back into your lawn.  The new seed will germinate and start to fill in thin areas.  You'll enjoy valuable long-term benefits as soil properties improve and the root system of the grass thickens and grows.

Aeration and Overseed

The ultimate power duo for your lawn!  Aeration is a non-chemical way to allow the roots of your lawn to breathe and flourish, and reduce soil compaction improving absorption of nutrients and moisture.  We highly recommend aerating every season.  Over-seeding  introduces improved seed varieties which, over time, greatly improve the health and beauty of your lawn.

Flea and Tick

Applied in conjunction with our first four lawn applications, our trained and licensed applicators will apply four applications to the turf areas to help manage unwanted fleas and ticks from invading your property.   

While this program is designed to help prevent fleas and ticks, it is only one component in trying to limit the pests.

Home Perimeter Insect Control

An invisible insect control barrier is applied on and around your house to prevent the entry of pests such as spiders, ants and centipedes.

 

Five treatments will be applied over the course of the season to keep these uninvited guests from entering your home.

Grub Control

While many lawn care services do not include grub control, we believe it is critical to a successful lawn care program.  This service is INCLUDED in our Summer application.  Applying grub preventer at a later date alone is more costly, and applied as a control should grubs become a nuisance, is more costly yet.

Lime

Lime "sweetens" the soil and allows the lawn to better utilize the fertilizers applied, thus producing a healthier, more lush lawn.
