How can I benefit from professional lawn care & maintenance?

The most important benefit you can reap from professional lawn care is a healthy lawn. Soil and grass that is properly cared for (fertilized, seeded, aerated, treated for pests, etc.) will grow thicker and greener. Lawn maintenance like mowing & trimming services keep your property perfectly manicured. With professionals managing the needs of your lawn, you can enjoy the spoils of a beautifully trimmed lawn without putting in any of the effort or time. Lawn maintenance is also generally affordable.

Is fertilization and weed control important?

Fertilizing your lawn helps it maintain good health & strength. What products you use and when treatment is applied determines the effectiveness; which is why professional fertilization services are recommended. Weeds are more than an eyesore, they’re also a serious nuisance that can steal vital nutrients from your grass. A thick lawn (from fertilization) can help prevent some weed growth, but professional treatment is the best way to prevent & eliminate weeds.

Is core aeration beneficial?

For lawns with a lot of thatch buildup or severe soil compaction problems, core aeration is more than beneficial, it’s important. Core aeration needs to be precisely timed for the best results, which is why professional service is recommended. The purpose of aerating your lawn is to allow vital nutrients like oxygen, water, and fertilizer to reach the root system. Core aeration is often performed in the spring, however, it may be necessary in the fall as well if your thatch problems are extreme.

What are the benefits of overseeding my lawn?

Overseeding is only beneficial when done correctly. Seeds need to be embedded effectively into the soil and watered until they sprout. Most often applied in the late summer, seeds that root in the fall will sprout again in the spring, ensuring a thicker lawn after the ground thaws. If you have bare or brown spots come spring, overseeding can be completed again to help fill in the problem areas.
