Keep your lawn at its best
Late summer into early fall is an opportune time to evaluate the condition of your grass and take any necessary steps to ensure its continued health and appearance. Our lawn care professionals will determine the best course of action for your property, including dethatching, aeration, and overseeding as needed. Thatch accumulates naturally at the base of the grass blades and is composed of mulched leaves and grass clippings that have not fully decomposed and have become too thick, creating a barrier that blocks air, nutrients, and water from reaching the roots. Dethatching removes this debris, but may be stressful to your lawn, so should be expertly timed to the specific type of grass and when it is healthiest during a strong growth period. Aeration creates small pathways for water and nutrients to get deep into the soil by perforating your lawn with small holes and pulling out plugs of turf and soil. This strategy is especially beneficial to soil that has become hard and compacted over time and use. Following one or both of these services, your lawn is now prepared for fertilization and overseeding as needed, providing a healthy and verdant component to your landscaping.
