Aeration and Seeding in Lorton
Our aeration and seeding services in Lorton are a key component in providing your turf with the nutrients it needs to reach its full potential. This often-overlooked process allows your grass to fully flourish by enhancing its ability to absorb oxygen, water, and fertilizer. Our experts use machinery to meticulously pull small plugs of soil evenly spaced throughout your lawn. Aeration helps to reduce the thatch build-up which accumulates on the top layer of your soil throughout the year and opens up the opportunity for unhindered growth.
Once this process is completed, we take advantage of your lawn’s unspoiled permeability by topping it off with fresh seeding. Seeding in allows your grass to establish a stronger root system, enhancing its thickness and viability. Other benefits of aeration and seeding include:
- A noticeably fuller and greener turf.
- Reduced appearance of patches and bare spots.
- Increased tolerance to heat and drought stress.
- Reduced runoff and soil compaction.
- Natural prevention of weeds and disease.
- And more!
Why wait to help your landscape have everything it needs to thrive throughout the year? Fall is the optimal time to ensure your soil is able to receive the maximum benefits from our aeration and seeding services. No program is complete without this step, so our technicians will have your yard both aerated and seeded after just one visit. Combined with our total lawn care program, your landscape will have everything it needs to flourish no matter what the weather in Lorton brings!
Tree and Shrub Care in Lorton
When it comes to maintaining the health of your landscape, achieving the results you desire can often be difficult without having to extensively study your property and the individual needs of your trees and shrubs. Why waste time struggling in your yard alone when you can rely on our expert technicians to treat and protect your turf throughout each season? Our team has spent decades perfecting our tree and shrub care so that you can enjoy a bountiful yard without having to lift a finger!
Our six-step tree and shrub care program approach:
- Early Spring: Our tree specialists apply a horticultural oil treatment to protect your trees before insects have the chance to hatch. We then apply fertilizer with micro-nutrients to the root zone of your plants for optimal strength and development.
- Mid-Spring: Each plant is meticulously treated for full protection of your landscape from spring insects and disease.
- Early Summer: We work to keep summer insects like bagworms, mites, or beetles from taking over your grass. We also continue to apply tailored nutrients to your shrubs in order to prevent diseases like powdery mildew, leaf spot, or scale.
- Late Summer: Over the summer insect and disease problems often spread quickly. Both insects and diseases are therefore monitored and treated as needed.
- Fall: Our lawn experts apply deep root injections to protect susceptible plants against harmful pests. This also includes a fully-soluble fertilizer product that provides both chemical and biological fertility, plus the application of our slow-release fertilizer to all other plants.
- Winter: We carefully apply a wax coating to protect your plants from drying out from exposure to ice, wind, or freezing temperatures.
