Aerating your lawn reduces the compaction of the soils and encourages healthy root growth by allowing air, water, and nutrients direct access to the root system.

This service is offered: Spring & Fall


Given the right soil and proper care, plants are usually all too happy to grow. But sometimes they need a little help getting out of the ground. Potassium, phosphorus and nitrogen are the most important chemical elements necessary for the growth of a plant. Often, though, it’s difficult for plants to obtain these key chemical elements, or macronutrients, in nature. That’s where fertilizer comes in handy.

We use professional grade fertilizer that is sepcially coated to prevent burn if not watered. Our fertilizer program consists of five applications througout the year.

This service is offered:  Year round

Grub Control

It is important to realize that healthy turf, especially if there is plenty of rain in the spring and fall can support a grub population of five grubs per square foot with no obvious turf damage. A lawn should be mowed at 3.5-4.0 inches in height and properly fertilized to maximize root growth. But if the grub population is high, or if there is a history of damage in an area, it may be necessary to consider using chemicals for grub control.

This service is offered: Bi-Annually
