Turfgrass pulls lots of elements from the soil that it uses for new new growth. Over time, some of these elements become depleted from the soil and the turfgrass begins to thin out. Weeds suddenly become a problem, perhaps in areas where you never noticed them before. This is part of the natural progression. Maintaining a thick healthy lawn that provides a natural backdrop for your landscape requires a little help.
We use several types of lawn fertilizers depending on what you want and what your lawn needs. Our soil testing program tells us exactly what your soil requires to grow thick, healthy lawns. How you supply those needs is up to you.
We offer both traditional lawn fertilization programs that are based on years of study and evaluation. When combined with other cultural practices like aeration, weed-control, and grass-cycling, your soil will be a healthy, thriving environment suitable for growing a thick vibrant lawn.
We also provide an organic fertilization program that uses natural products that breakdown over a longer period of time. It takes a little longer, but the results combine to give you a healthy, organic-rich soil, that will also provide a deep-rich green turfgrass that you’ll be proud to own.

Keeping Your Lawn Weed Free
There are several things that you can do to keep broadleaf weed invasions to a minimum.
- To reduce weed-seed germination, mow your lawn at 3″ or higher. The added shade provided by the increased height reduces weed seeds from germinating.
- During dry spells, water enough to keep your turf health and growing instead of going dormant. This requires about 1″ – 1.5″ of water per week. Aerate the soil regularly to encourage healthy roots and a thicker lawn.
