POWER RAKING – $89.95
Thatch is a combination of dead and living material that accumulates over time on the soil surface due to such factors as over-fertilization, over-watering, and/or soil compaction. A small amount of thatch is beneficial because it helps to moderate soil temperature fluctuations. However, too much thatch interferes with water and air movement, reduces fertilizer and pesticide response, and increases the chances for disease and insect damage.
Power raking is a great way to remove this excess thatch. The best time of year for a power raking is in the early spring once the ground has had a chance to dry, however, this service can also be applied in early fall so long as your lawn has had a chance to recover before going into winter dormancy. You can begin to determine if thatch is a problem on your lawn by keeping an eye out for dry and dead patches of grass and an unusual sponginess or springiness when you walk on it.
Remove a pie-shaped plug of grass with a knife or trowel, or remove a core with a soil probe. Dig deep enough to get some of the soil below. Carefully examine the plug so that you can identify the soil, the grass, and the spongy thatch layer in between. Then measure the depth of the thatch. One-half inch of thatch or less is not a problem. If there is more than that it is time for a thatch management program.
Core aeration quite simply is the mechanical removal of small cores or plugs of soil from a lawn using an aeration machine. The cores are left on the lawn and break down over time. Consequently, they return valuable nutrients and microorganisms to the soil. If you notice areas of compaction from foot traffic or standing water after a rain, you may want to consider this process. However, even a healthy lawn can benefit from annual aeration.
Aerating your lawn is one of the most beneficial things you can do to create a lush, healthy, green, and weed free lawn. Particularly, it increases water absorption, stimulates root development, reduces soil compaction, enhances thatch breakdown, and increases the tolerance to heat and drought stress. Spring or fall are the best times to have a lawn aerated.
Overseeding compensates for the natural slow-down of the turf’s production and is one of the most important tasks for maintaining a thick and healthy lawn. Additionally, it can quickly repair a lawn that is thin and patchy from such factors as winter, drought, and insect damage. The best time to perform an overseeding is in conjunction with power raking or aeration. A thin lawn is an invitation to weeds and insect damage, overseeding will ensure it stays thick and dense to protect itself. Another benefit of overseeding is that the new varieties of seed will have more disease resistance than the seeds on your lawn.
3 SEASON FERTILIZATION PROGRAM – $179.95
A great way to help grow healthy grass and have a lush, thick lawn this season is to apply fertilizer. We have a great 3 season program that is specially designed to promote the best growth possible all seasons. The spring application is designed to promote healthy growth.

WEED FREE LAWN PROGRAM – $219.95
By far and away the best weed and insect prevention is maintaining a healthy and lush lawn. Starting a good maintenance program and continuing that program are keys to success. However, weeds and insects are opportunistic and will take advantage of any desirable situation that comes about. This can be anything from heat stress to not enough/too much watering. With weed issues, it is important to identify the cause so that preventative steps can be taken in the future.
Our Weed Free Program includes 2 full spray applications of the entire lawn with Fiesta Weed Control. If required, we will do a 3rd follow up application. Fiesta is a potent product and thus, should only be applied to your lawn twice in a season.
Fiesta Weed Control is the government legislated product to be used on your lawn, ensuring it’s safe for you, your family & pets, and the environment. It works because grass likes a healthy amount of iron, which one of Fiesta’s main ingredients… Weeds don’t. Weeds eat the iron, and it drys them out, leaving your lawn greener, and weed free.
MANUAL DE-WEEDING: WEED CONTROL FOR GRAVEL/LANDSCAPE AREAS – $99.95/man hour
Have weeds taken over your gravel areas? No matter what type of plastic layer lies beneath the gravel small parts of dust and organic matter allow weeds to take root. These can take over rather quickly and if you spray the weeds they seem to come back stronger then ever. Part of the problem is the remains are adding to the amount of organic debris available. As a result, those weeds to grow back even stronger.
The one true long-term solution for this problem is to replace all the gravel. We will be happy to give you a free estimate. However, if you have a more budget conscious approach, you may consider manual de-weeding instead. It usually takes two to three hours to completely de-weed an area. Once it is complete, we can spray a herbicide as an extra preventative measure. Below are some before and after pictures from de-weeding we have completed.
