Forget the hit-or-miss watering that comes with hauling hoses and moving sprinklers. A professionally designed underground system gives your lawn and landscape the right amount of water at the right time ... automatically!
Advantages of an Automatic System
Anyone who has spent hours hauling hoses trying to water their whole lawn can appreciate the simplicity of a well-designed system that irrigates both your lawn and landscape beds automatically and unattended.
Your plants are watered even while you’re away on vacation or while at night when water pressures are usually higher. The controller can be placed in a convenient location, and it keeps track of when watering cycles take place.
Sprinkler heads are low-maintenance and don’t interfere with normal mowing and trimming operations. A real plus is that systems are installed with very little disruption to your existing lawn and landscape.
Call us for more information on automatic sprinkler systems. Our service and repair programs will deliver trouble-free solutions for all of your lawn and landscape watering needs.
Battling an infestation of pests can be frustrating, expensive and time-consuming. Avoid problems by having a barrier treatment applied to your home throughout the year.
Lime “sweetens” your soil. In areas where soil is naturally “sour” (or acidic), this is extremely important for growing healthy turf. Lime helps improve lawn color and density, helps control thatch and increases root development.
When your soil pH is too low (acidic), it needs lime to bring it back into balance. Soil that is too acidic causes “fertilizer lock-up.” This means that fertilizer and important micro-nutrients become locked up in the soil and unavailable to the grass plants.
- Aeration Overseeding
- Core Aeration
Power core aeration is one of the most important cultural practices available for your lawn. Aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to reach the root zone of your lawn.
Aeration removes thousands of small cores of soil 1” to 3” in length from your lawn. These cores “melt” back into the lawn after a few rainfalls, mixing with whatever thatch exists on your lawn. The holes created by aeration catch fertilizer and water. Turf roots naturally grow toward these growth pockets and thicken in the process. Aeration holes also relieve pressure from compacted soils, letting oxygen and water move more freely into the root zone.
Thatch on your lawn works like a thatched roof. This layer of roots, stems and other plant parts sheds water and prevents fertilizers and insect control from moving freely into the soil. Thatch that is too heavy can make major lawn renovation necessary. Regular aeration helps thatch break down naturally by mixing the soil cores into the thatch and speeding up decomposition. Performed once or twice per year, aeration significantly reduces thatch and improves turf growth.
- Preventive Grub Control
- Curative Grub Control
- Insecticide Application
- Fungicide Application
There are several types of white grubs that feed on the roots of lawn grasses. All of them can cause severe damage if left untreated.
Grubs live and feed in the soil. It’s easy to miss them as they gradually cut the roots out from under your lawn. It’s not until brown patches begin to appear that the grubs are finally discovered.
Grubs are the larval (or worm) state of many types of beetles. The beetles lay their eggs in your lawn, and the newly hatched worms work their way through the thatch and into the soil, where they feed on the roots of grass plants. Most beetles lay their eggs during mid-to-late summer, and the young grubs do their greatest damage during the fall months.
Grubs don’t disappear on their own. They should be treated before damage begins to appear or as soon as they are discovered. When they're treated early enough in the year, a preventive treatment can be applied. When damage appears in the fall, a fast-acting curative treatment is needed. Call with any questions.
Of all the pests that damage lawns, fungus diseases are among the most difficult to tame. There are hundreds of diseases that can infect your turf. Some are relatively harmless; others can destroy an entire lawn in a very short time.
Fungus spores spread on the wheels of lawn mowers, on the shoes of children, on the droplets of rain that bounce from plant to plant during rain or watering or by wind, blown like microscopic seeds across your lawn. Every lawn has disease organisms. The trick is not letting them get the upper hand.
To reduce disease, keep the lawn healthy and growing with proper feeding, mowing, watering and thatch-control measures. Some grass types are much less susceptible to fungus attack. Consider planting disease-resistant varieties when you seed.
Disease treatments do not usually eliminate the disease from the lawn. Instead, they suppress activity for a period of a few days to several weeks. The goal is to keep the disease in check long enough for the grass to recover or the weather conditions to change. Often, several treatments are needed.
