Lawn Care

There is so much more to lawn care than just mowing (and we do that too!).

Spring Lawn Fertilization: Fertilization is completed just as turf begins to grow after our long winter. It promotes a quicker green up which will help the turf to fill in any areas damaged due the winter’s ice and snow.

Spring Fertilization and Weed Prevention: Fertilizer combined with a weed preventative material is applied to turf areas. It promotes green-up and works to prevent crabgrass and other select weeds from even germinating.

Early Summer Lawn Fertilization: Fertilizer is applied to turf areas just as we get ready for summer in Vermont. It will promote the green up of turf and encourage thick growth patterns, which will reduce the potential of weed invasion.

Broadleaf Weed Control with Lawn Areas: An application of various state-approved, low-dose pesticides specifically formulated for the weeds identified in your lawn is applied by one of our many state certified turf technicians. This is a liquid application, which allows for quicker up take by targeted weeds while leaving no long-standing residuals.

Preventative Grub Control with Fertilizer: A preventative application is applied to help suppress grubs in your lawn.

Lawn Disease: Applications are applied that will suppress or prevent the spread of disease throughout turf areas. Liquid materials are used and in many cases are repeated several times in order to maintain control. This is largely dependent on the type of disease targeted and weather patterns.

Late Summer Lawn Fertilization: Fertilizer is applied to turf areas in order to maintain green and very thick growth throughout the season. Thick turf helps to prevent weed invasion into otherwise healthy lawns.

Fall Lawn Fertilization: An application of fertilizer is applied to turf areas, which will work to maintain green and thick growth until the end of the season. Plus, additional materials are used that will encourage root growth during this critical time of turf development. Lawns fertilized in the fall not only receive the above benefits but also hold green better throughout the winter and are the first to green up in the spring.

Fall Lawn Fertilization and Weed Preventative: All the same benefits as stated in the standard fall lawn fertilization, plus the additional use of material that is designed for fall application that will prevent crabgrass and select other weeds the following season.

Lime Application: Most of the soils in Vermont are of a pH that require lime in order to bring the pH to an acceptable levels. Correct pH levels will allow for the proper absorption of nutrients and in many cases work to suppress the spread of unwanted moss.

Over Seeding: This is the seeding of turf areas right over the top of the existing turf. In many cases, this is completed in conjunction with core aeration.

Slice Seeding – Spring or Fall: A specialized machine is used to slice a groove in the ground down through the existing sod and new seed is introduced and the groove is closed. This is a highly specialized service used for the installation of new lawn areas or to re-establish old thin lawns. The germination rates are very high.

Lawn Aeration – Spring and/or Fall: Healthy plants require oxygen and turf is no exception to that rule. Cores or plugs are pulled from the ground throughout the turf areas. Core aeration significantly improves root growth and mass while at the same time reduces thatch and compaction.
