The secret to creating a lawn flush with thick, green grass takes more than a regular watering schedule. In fact, there’s an entire field of science dedicated to plant health. 

Regardless of the size, a healthy lawn of green turf helps to improve curb appeal and uplift the overall appearance of your home. For homeowners to enjoy these benefits, they have to upkeep a suitable lawn care routine. 

Fortunately for you, we’re here to help simplify the science and provide a truckful of solutions to help you get the lawn of your neighbors’ dreams.

Our Lawn Care Solutions

Creating a perfectly groomed lawn filled with green turf takes work. From fertilization to mowing and weed control, manicuring your grass to be the envy of your neighbor’s eye is a challenge. But each lawn is unique and needs a custom tailored solution to get it up to par. We evaluate your climate, soil condition, grass type and lawn usage to develop the right course of action for your specific needs.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Fertilization is integral to the growth of your lawn. We apply our slow-release formula at key points during the year to stimulate and maintain turf growth. 
  • Even the best of us get caught in a losing battle with weeds. Our fertilization efforts are unique to our customers' lawn, grass types, climate, and more to ensure nutrients are delivered at the right time and in the right amount.

Our Aeration Solutions

Annual wear and tear plus intense weather conditions can cause long term stress on your lawn. This is especially true in the summer months after long days of backyard fun due to the heavy foot traffic. This can lead to soil compaction preventing air, water, and nutrients from reaching the grasses’ roots.

Here’s what you can do:

  • Aeration service breaks up thatch and soil compaction to increase nutrient availability, water penetration and soil air exchange to create a healthier lawn. By removing the cores of soil, you can improve the effectiveness of your other lawn health efforts. 
  • Aeration creates optimal conditions for seeding development and growth. This can open the door for you to restore bare spots, thinning turf or patchy grass through overseeding.

Our Tree and Shrub Care Solutions

Trees and shrubs offer more than just visual value to your home. In fact, they can increase property values, decrease energy usage and improve mental health conditions for you and your family. Fortunately, caring for trees and shrubs doesn’t need to be a hassle, but it does require some basic plant knowledge to help them reach their full potential. 

Here’s what you can do:

  • What your plants need most are the proper nutrients to support their growth, color, flowering and overall health. Our carefully timed and tailored fertilization treatments can help your plants reach their full potential.  
  • Insects, mites and diseases can pose a serious threat to your trees and shrubs. Our expertly applied treatments are designed to help protect against common plant-damaging pests and diseases year round.
  • Some plants need a unique application of horticultural oil during the cold weather months to help prevent damage from insects and mites. Horticultural oil suffocates insects, insect eggs and mites in their overwintering stage to ensure a smooth transition into the spring growing season for your trees and shrubs.
