We analyze your lawn determining what type of grasses it has, and if it has desirable or undesirable diseases, insects and weeds. Then based on the size of the lawn we can give the cost per lawn service maintenance application. We then determine soil condition, make up and if compacted and determine if the lawn needs: seeding, organics, aeration or full renovation.
Humic Supplement Application
Humic acids stimulate the microbial action in the soil, reduces soil compaction, enhancing water penetration and stimulating seed and root activity.
Humic acids improve the quality and density of turf and help increase the cation exchange capacity of the soil. This supplement increases the long-term health of the soil, improving the effectiveness of future fertilization applications and reduction in leaching in the environment.
Over time your soil naturally becomes compacted leaving the subsoil undesirable for healthy lawn growth, so we recommend core aeration for these reasons:
- Stimulates Root Growth
- Enhance Water Uptake
- Reduce Compaction
- Improve Oxygen Content
- Enhance Thatch Control
- Improve Nutrient Availability
What is a soil test?
It is a process by which elements (phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, manganese, copper and zinc) are chemically removed from the soil and measured for their “plant available” content within the sample. The quantity of available nutrients in the sample determines the amount of fertilizer that is recommended.
Why do you need a soil test?
- Encourages plant growth by providing the best time and fertilizer recommendations
- Diagnoses whether there is too little or too much of a nutrient
- Promotes environmental quality
- Saves money that might otherwise be spent on unneeded lime and fertilizer
Grasscycling is the natural recycling of grass clippings by simply leaving them on the lawn after lawn mowing.
- Improve lawn quality
- Saves time and work
- Does not cause thatch
- Will not damage lawn
- Does not spread lawn disease
- Too wet to incinerate
- All mowers can grasscycle
- Collecting clipping is more expensive (most states will ban yard waste in 2-5 years)
- It is a responsible environmental practice
