Add-on Lawn and Shrub Care Services

Aerating

Let your lawn breath! We aerate your lawn by removing small plugs from the your turf resulting in increased water, air and nutrient intake into the root system of the lawn.

Slit Seeding

We revitalize your lawn by thatching and cutting “slits” into your turf while injecting grass seed into each individual groove. We use top quality seed that fits your specific lawn area and we apply a premium starter fertilizer to “jump start” the germination process. This service is offered in early spring and in late summer through fall.

Thatching Service

This service removes excess dead grass matted throughout the turf, allowing water and nutrients to penetrate the ground easier; at the same time eliminating areas for harmful insects to hide.

Lime Application

In our area where the soil generally has a low “ph”, an application of lime will raise the “ph” to more appropriate level for turf grass.

Shrub Care Programs

Individually structured for the types of trees and shrubs located in your landscape. Generally three to five visits per season to monitor and treat for diseases and pests that might be harming your landscape.

Deep Root Fertilizing

This is the best way for shrubs & trees to attain instant nutrients. We use pressure to inject a water suspended fertilizer into the root zone of the tree or shrub.

Winter Protection

This service treats evergreen trees and shrubs to prevent winter desiccation.

Landscape Bed Weed Control

Tired of weekends pulling weeds? We offer both granular pre-emergent weed control and liquid post emergent weed control for your landscape beds
