Year-Round Service to Nurture Your Landscape
We don’t believe in transforming your lawn with short-term fixes! Our goal is to use the highest quality products and a year-round approach to bring you long-term, sustainable growth. When you sign up for our lawn care in Crofton, we’ll start with a thorough evaluation of your lawn, including a soil test. Then, one of our friendly lawn experts will design a comprehensive lawn care plan for you, customized to meet the unique needs of your landscape.
Each of our lawn care packages is built with seasonality in mind. Our lawn care program in Crofton includes:
- Early Spring: Application of phosphorus-free, organic-based fertilizer and pre-emergent herbicides. Our team works to deliver beautiful early spring color and provide your lawn with everything it needs before the growing season begins. Ask about our bed weed control program to help keep weeds out of your flower beds and under control!
- Late Spring: To keep your lawn green and healthy, we rely on the liquid application of controlled-release fertilizers and herbicides that will keep weeds at bay through summer.
- Summer: Application of phosphorus-free fertilizer allows for extended nutrient release under the hot summer sun. If persistent summer weeds are a problem, we’ll spot a treat to keep your lawn looking beautiful during backyard barbecue season.
- Fall: Renovate, rejuvenate, and recover! Organic-based fertilizers promote top growth and recovery from summer damage. Add a fall aeration treatment to breathe fresh air into your landscape before winter.
- Winter: An application of limestone keeps your soil pH within an ideal range, allowing the essential nutrients we apply throughout the year to be utilized and taken up by your turf.
Lawn Aeration in Crofton
If your lawn is looking thin or suffering from brown spots, our aeration services in Crofton might be just the boost it needs. When too much thatch builds up in your lawn, it begins to block water and nutrients from reaching the roots of your grass. This results in an unhealthy lawn that looks brown and bare. But it doesn’t have to stay that way! By choosing either core aeration or liquid aeration, Blades of Green can help to loosen up your soil, allowing more water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots, leading to a greener, healthier lawn. Additionally, aeration creates the optimal environment for seed germination, which is where our seeding services come in. By sowing additional seeds, you’ll be able to see your lawn spring back to life.
The Safest, Greenest Treatments in the Industry
The benefits of our aeration and seeding care in Crofton can turn your lawn from drab to lush and green!
Other benefits include:
- Thicker grass that fills in bare spots.
- Increasing your lawn’s ability to fight disease.
- Making your lawn less susceptible to damage from insects.
- Erasing visible signs of stress in your lawn.
- Creating the best conditions for grass seed germination.
- Improving the overall appearance of your lawn.
