TruGreen Lawn Services in AlbanySnow is a given in Upstate New York. While many lawn enthusiasts look at that as a disadvantage, our TruGreen Albany lawn service professionals use it to their advantage. Because we know what’s coming, we’re able to prep your lawn for winter using professional equipment and technology so that you don’t have to work so hard for a lush, green lawn next spring.
During our first visit, our lawn professionals will perform a Healthy Lawn Analysis®✦ to assess the pH balance of your soil and see how past snowfalls have affected the overall health of your lawn. Because melting snow can cause quite a bit of salt damage, it’s important that we add the right nutrients so your lawn can grow back healthier and stronger than ever.
We’ll also check for lawn diseases like Rust, Red Thread and Snow Mold. For any fungus or infections that we find, we’ll create a plan of action to cure your lawn as quickly as possible. Our experts can also give you tips on how to prevent lawn diseases in the future. We’ll look for signs of lawn-damaging insects, such as loose clumps of grass that come up easily when pulled. This can indicate a White Grub infestation, something we’ll treat right away using our targeted delivery equipment and pest control application methods.
Winter Damage: TruGreen Lawn Services in AlbanySoil in Albany tends to get compacted from a combination of damage from the long winters, heavy foot traffic and poor soil conditions. For this, we recommend services like aeration and overseeding.
- Aeration is where we remove quarter-sized plugs from your lawn so that rain, oxygen and nutrients can flow freely to the roots of your grass. It also “unpacks” compacted soil, which helps with water absorption and flooding issues during long periods of rain or melting snow runoff.
- Overseeding your lawn around the same time as aeration can be beneficial. It builds up your lawn’s natural defense against weeds by promoting dense, healthy grass growth so that weeds can’t compete for nutrients, sunlight and space in your yard. This gives your lawn a natural defense against weeds.
