TruGreen Rocky Hill Lawn Care Services
Wouldn’t it be great if you could take the guesswork out of yardwork? With TruGreen Rocky Hill’s wide variety of lawn care services, you can. Our lawn care professionals are extremely knowledgeable about the soil and weather conditions in and around Hartford and New Haven, particularly when it comes to how these factors affect grass.
What Lawn Care Services Does TruGreen Rocky Hill Provide?Everything we do starts out with an assessment of your lawn. Have ticks? Lawn disease? Thatch buildup? Compacted soil? We’ll get to the root of the problem so we can nip it in the bud. After our thorough investigation is done, we’re able to put together a plan of action to ensure that you get the healthiest, greenest lawn possible—without any hassle on your end.
We generally start off by adding vital nutrients to your soil every 4 to 6 weeks as needed. This creates a soil that is pH-balanced, which in turn produces a stronger, healthier lawn. As we work to strengthen your grass, we’ll also address other problems common to the Rocky Hill area, such as:
- Thatch buildup and compacted soil. Thatch is the layer of organic matter gathered at the soil’s surface made up of decomposing or dead grass. A slight layer of thatch is healthy, but too much chokes off your lawn’s nutrient, air and water supply. Compacted soil is what happens when you have too much heavy foot traffic, clay-heavy soil and/or drainage problems.
The solution to both is a lawn aeration, which removes small core “plugs” from your lawn, allowing oxygen, water and nutrients to pass freely to the roots of your lawn, thereby helping it decompact and break down thatch naturally.
- Ticks and fleas. Connecticut has a huge tick problem, but Rocky Hill TruGreen has a solution to keep these disease-carrying insects out of your yard. Our TruShieldSM Lawn Pest Control Service can help eliminate fleas, ticks, chiggers, earwigs, spiders and ants, giving you peace of mind that your family, guests and pets will be safe and comfortable in your own backyard.
- Lawn disease. The wet winters and hot summers in New Haven create ideal conditions for lawn diseases in certain types of grass. Three common lawn diseases we diagnose and treat are Slime Mold, Snow Mold and Brown Spot. Catching any lawn fungus early is the key to ensuring a healthy recovery, but prevention is the best medicine—luckily, our lawn maintenance professionals have a few tricks up their sleeve that they can share with you on how to keep lawn disease at bay.
