All of our fertilizers are organic and non-polluting. This is especially important in our area since many homes use well water. Depending on your lawn's needs, 2 to 5 applications are made during the growing season.
Insect and Weed Control
A well maintained and healthy lawn is the best defense against weeds and insects. Also, choosing the right grass for your lawn is very important. We can recommend the best types for your residence. There are few natural weed control options. We are keeping up to date and testing any options as they become available. Corn gluten has proven to be valuable as a weed seed pre-emergent.
We recommend aeration on a regular basis. In our heavy clay soil, aerating will open up your lawn by removing small plugs of soil in the turf, thus opening passageways for air, water, and nutrients to more quickly reach roots and promote strong turf growth. Core Aeration Fact Sheet.
Over Seeding is best performed in the spring or early autumn. This helps build a stronger lawn by filling in open areas with fresh new grass, helps prevent weeds, and provides a lush, thick lawn.
Lawns should be mowed frequently, especially in the spring. Be sure to leave the clippings on the lawn. Clippings help protect the grass from the hot sun of summer, control moisture loss, and return nutrients back to the soil as they break down.
