OUR LAWN CARE SERVICES
Core aeration & over-seeding
Our core aeration service includes core aeration, tall fescue seed & a well balanced starter fertilizer that gives the new seedlings the right nutrients from start to finish. The aeration is the process of removing small plugs from the lawn with a machine. The holes that the machine makes allow water, oxygen and nutrients to better penetrate to the roots of your grass.
Aeration also helps your lawn fight soil compaction which is an ongoing issue with our southern clay.
After the aeration is complete, the seed, starter fertilizer and the plugs that have been removed slowly wash into the holes & start to germinate in 10-14 days with the proper amount of water.
Tree & shrub insect control & fertilization
From time to time trees & shrubs might fall victim to some localized pests. Certain varieties of trees & shrubs are more venerable then others. No matter the case we have a spring & fall treatment/prevention program. In addition to insect control our treatment package has an organic fertilizer to help keep your plants roots thriving and keep the new growth healthy and lush.
The most common disease in tall fescue lawns is brown patch, caused by the fungus Rhizoctonia solani. Brown patch is primarily a mid-summer disease, but may occur anytime when night temperatures exceed 70°F and grass blades remain wet for periods of 10 hours or longer. To combat the brown patch disease we have a program that includes 3-4 applications of a fungicide to stop brown patch from setting in. Included in the application is seaweed kelp extract to help relieve summer heat stress. Heavy irrigation & rainfall can lessen the effectiveness of the treatments & also cause the brown patch disease to worsen.
Grub worms are a common issue in tall fescue lawns. Grubs in most cases are the larvae of Japanese beetles. After the beetles mate during the late spring/early summer, the females lay eggs in the soil.
Once the eggs hatch, the grubs feed on the roots of the tall fescue grass during the warm summer days. As the soil temperature begins to fall, they burrow deeper in the soil, often times to a depth of 4+ feet.
When the spring temperatures warm the soil the grub worms make their way back to the root zone to start feeding again.
During the summer, grub damage can often appear to be drought stress. Serious infestations will often cause large irregular patches to die. The tunneling of the larvae cause the turf to feel spongy under foot and the turf can often be rolled back like a loose piece of sod.
We have a variety of treatments to combat grubs, from pre-treatments that stop grubs from being able to mature in the spring & also treatments for adult grub worms when found in late summer early fall.
