Comprehensive & Customized Lawn Care Treatments
Unlike our competitors, we don’t make you purchase individual packages just to get a great yard. Additionally, we recognize that no two yards are the same, which is why our services always begin with a free initial analysis. By doing so, our technicians are able to evaluate the condition of your soil and grass, while also keeping in mind how your yard is used and any specific concerns you have, to develop a customized course of treatment.
Our comprehensive lawn care services in Annandale include:
- Evaluation & First Round of Application—One of our trained, local lawn care technicians perform a thorough on-site evaluation of your turf, and applies the initial treatment that same day.
- Lawn Fertilization—We use high quality, organic-based products at the right times throughout the year to give your turf the nutrition it needs to really thrive.
- Weed Control—Our highly trained technicians are experts in local weed varieties and know how to prevent weeds before they take hold of your lawn as part of our services.
- Grub Control—Early detection and proper treatment of grubs will prevent them from eating through your grass’ root system resulting in dead grass and brown patches.
- pH Testing & Lime Treatments—In order to grow healthy grass, your soil should have the proper pH levels. Soil testing followed by the correct pH adjustments ensures roots have the optimal growing conditions.
Aeration and Seeding in Annandale
Did you know that through the regular use of your lawn throughout the year, a thick layer of dead grass and roots build-up at the base of your living grass? When this occurs, essential elements like nutrients, oxygen, and water are blocked from reaching the roots and therefore their ability to grow is restricted. The best way to overcome this inevitable problem is through lawn aeration and seeding in the fall. With this service, small plugs of soil will be pulled out of the ground throughout your yard allowing those nutrients to be absorbed by the roots. Then, we will seed your lawn so new roots are able to reach deep into the soil and strongly establish themselves.
A Process That Works
Our aeration and seeding services are the best and most effective way to obtain a luscious and healthy landscape. All it takes is one phone consultation to determine what exactly your turf needs are and to explain our process. After that, we will come to aerate and seed your lawn in just one visit! Whenever our technician services your home, they are more than happy to discuss more information regarding the treatments as well as answering any questions you may have. Do what’s best for your grass and call us to find out exactly what we can do for you!
Benefits of Aeration and Overseeding
If you’ve been caring for your lawn all year long, don’t skip on the aeration and overseeding! As part of our program, we offer aeration and seeding for a healthier, and fuller lawn. Benefits include:
- Thickening the density of thinner turfs.
- Improving the overall appearance.
- Helping the lawn fight insects and disease.
- Filling in areas of grass damaged by insects, disease, and stress.
