Meet Your Lawn Prep Goals This Year
Core Aeration with Overseeding
These two services go hand-in-hand because they rid your lawn of compacted soil that accumulates throughout the year and treats any thinning or bare patches. Compacted soil restricts the flow of air, water, and nutrients down to your grassroots, causing lawn damage and decline.
Core aeration uses a special machine to pull out tiny cores of compacted soil throughout your lawn. By opening up, the soil, air, water, and nutrients can once again penetrate down to the roots. The loosened soil makes it easier for the roots to expand and grow deeper into the lawn. That’s why this service is best done in the fall when cool-season turfgrass experiences the most growth in their roots. This strengthens the turf, making it more resilient to pest attacks and lawn diseases. An overseeding application not only thickens up your grass but also introduces different species to the soil. Diversifying the grasses allows your lawn to better withstand disease, heat, drought, and stress of the growing season. Since weeds rely on direct sunlight, a lush, thick lawn will help in preventing them from springing up.
Tree And Shrub Care
Any quality tree and shrub care program will have multiple steps to ensure your lawn ornamentals are well cared for. The first thing to consider is fertilization. We prefer to use the deep-root fertilization method because it bypasses the roots of other plants or grass that may compete for nutrients. Using a specialized tool, we inject nutrients in the targeted area. As part of this process, our technicians will also assess your plants for any signs of diseases.
The second part of our tree and shrub care plan involves pest control. Fertilizing your trees won’t help if they’re overrun by insects. When choosing insecticides, we are very careful to select those who won’t harm pollinators, like bumblebees. We make sure to apply insecticides at times when the bees are not active.
We’re also pleased to offer assistance to those who are having problems with their fruit trees and the appearance of the fruit. Whether it be from disease or insects, we can keep your fruit blemish free; by putting together a treatment plan that is not only right for your fruit trees but right for you. Regardless if you have a whole orchard or just a few fruit trees; our years of qualified experience and knowledge will make all the difference.
Fleas And Ticks
These bugs are downright disgusting. They feed on the blood of you and your pets, and often carry harmful diseases like Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and babesiosis. Since fleas and ticks are often found in wooded areas, you may think your family is protected if you avoid such places. This is not necessarily true, however. Fleas and ticks can lurk in the shaded areas of your property, like under boughs of a large tree or underneath decks and patios. It’s extremely easy for a pet to visit these nesting grounds and bring home unwanted guests. Some solutions, like washing your pet, treat the symptom but not the condition. The only way to be sure your family is protected is to hire a professional flea and tick control company. By utilizing a solid pest control program, your technician will kill bugs at all stages of their life cycle and prevent new ones from cropping up.
Perimeter Pest Control
Some insects don’t pose a health risk to humans, but are no less gross. Few things are as unsettling as finding a spider’s web or catching a darting centipede. The landscaping industry has developed a solution: perimeter pest control. Your technician will spray the perimeter of your home, creating a protective barrier, to kill existing insects and defend against new ones.
When you opt for perimeter pest control, you can avoid disgusting crawling insects like:
