Having your lawn aerated is the best natural way to improve the overall health of your lawn. Core aeration removes small cores or “plugs” from the lawn, which break back down into the turf after a week or so. These plugs encourage microbial decomposition of undisturbed thatch to help accelerate thatch breakdown. These plugs help revive compacted soil and completely puncture thatch build up in concentrated areas.
Aeration allows water, oxygen, sunlight and fertilizer to penetrate the turf and reach the root system while improving health and encouraging growth and expansion. Aeration can be done any time the lawn is soft and in an active growing state (mainly late spring or early fall) and we recommend aerating on an annual basis to consistently encourage a healthy lawn.
Dethatching is the process of removing thatch build up from the base of the lawn in order to allow moisture, sunlight and fertilizers to better reach the soil. Thatch build up is dead, un-decomposed grass stems and roots accompanied by other small debris “trapped” above the soil base creating a barrier that reduces the absorption rate these necessary nutrients. It can also harbor insects and encourage disease.
While thatch build up is a natural process for lawns, excessive build up is a very common problem and can easily be diagnosed. Simply use your fingers to move apart your lawn and see how much dead grass has collected before you reach the soil. If you have more than about ½ inch, your thatch layer is preventing your lawn from looking its best.
This service defines the concrete borders of your lawn and gives it a clean manicured look. Turf overgrowth (both grass and soil) onto concrete is natural and can take away from the overall appearance of your lawn. Edging removes this overgrown turf and gives your lawn a crisp, clean appearance.
The more often you edge, the less overgrowth there is. This makes is easier for us and is why we offer edging as a monthly service at drastically reduced rates. It also keeps your edges looking good all season, rather than once or twice a year.
Leaf removal is vital to maintaining a healthy lawn. Removing fallen leafs allows your lawn to receive necessary sunlight and oxygen promoting sustainable growth and overall lawn health.
Tired of dead grass and endless hours of raking and bagging, leave it to the pros to deliver you the most overlooked service in professional lawn services.
Fall is coming and it's time to keep your healthy for the 2017.
While lawns in the Midwestern states tend to be considered among the best in the country, they tend to take a lot of abuse. Our climate changes drastically throughout the year and is experiencing more and more droughts and heavy rain periods. This means lawns need regular care to thrive and sometimes, depending on their unique characteristics, may need to be renovated or restored.
A general rule in the green industry is that if a lawn needs more than 50% restoration, it may be time to start over and plant a new one. When renovating a lawn, we generally select from several methods of care (dethatching, aerating, etc.) to best suit the individual lawn. If you are unsure about what your lawn requires to be the best on the block, please contact us for a free consultation.

Mulching is beneficial to shrub beds by helping to retain moisture, control weeds, prevent erosion, protect from temperature extremes and to improve the appearance of your bed areas. Proper mulching should include edging of the beds, application of a weed pre-emergent, and an even application of mulch to promote deterioration. This will ensure your beds don’t have an unnecessary build up of mulch which can hurt trees and shrubs.
