I’m optimistic that the heat waves of July and August are behind us and beautiful days with cool nights are ahead. Now is the time of year when we start looking towards lawn maintenance services that help to reverse the stresses your lawn received during the hottest and driest summer months and to prepare it for the next growing season.
As landscape professionals, we share a commitment to improving our environment on every level. We keep current on all research, equipment, and the best industry advances to maintain your properties at the highest levels possible.
BENEFITS OF AERATION and FALL SEEDING
Aeration is one of the most important maintenance practices we perform to promote a strong, healthy lawn. This service entails puncturing your lawn with small holes that allow water, nutrients and air to travel deeper into the soil which promotes strong, healthy roots, deters soil compacting, and helps eliminate thatch build-up. Most lawns require aeration only once a year but hard, highly-compact soil and clay-based soils may require aeration twice a year. During drought conditions, aeration helps water reach dry, thirsty roots.
September is the optimum time to seed your lawn. Our “slice” seeding method works extremely well without completely disrupting your property. We slice through the sod and seed directly into the soil eliminating the need to strip existing sod, till the yard and lay an unsightly cover of straw. Slice seeding provides immediate seed-to-soil contact and results in much better germination and proper growth. Since the majority of annual weeds sprout in the spring, there are far fewer of them in the fall to compete with the new growing grass. Fall temperatures also help retain vital moisture needed for the tender roots and young blades to thrive and survive.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ― John Lubbock
