Program Options

Preventative Grub Control
Merit is a preventative grub control product that has a 4 month residual in the soil for protection of your lawn against grub damage. This is highly effective, and an extremely safe product. This is a one time application for the season.

Disease Control

This is not recommended very often secondary to the cost. Please call or email if you have any questions.

Core Aeration in 2 Directions (included in Deluxe Program)
This service is highly recommended every fall by both the Virginia Tech and University of Maryland turf schools. Aeration loosens soil compaction, promotes root growth, and allows water to access the root zone.

Medium Overseeding (included in Deluxe Program) – +/-6 lbs. /1000 square feet
This service should be performed in conjunction with core aeration and will thicken the lawn, resulting in less weed activity. Slit seeding service is performed in conjunction with the overseeding and is used in thin, weedy areas, increasing the germination of seed – prorated.

Top Dressing with Compost
This service should be performed every 1 – 3 years (depending on soil conditions). A few benefits include: a 50% increase in seed germination, improved soil structure, and a deep green color in late fall and early spring. This is highly recommended

Soil Test
Soil testing results will contain information about nutritional deficiencies and about soil acidity (pH).

Liming
Lime is used to bring the soil pH up to +/- 6.5 which is ideal for turf to thrive. The soil test is used to determine amount of lime.

Shady Lawn Spring Seeding
This applies to customers who have heavily shaded lawns. Two seeding visits are performed in the spring to heavily shaded areas only. Unfortunately heavily shaded lawns will always have thin turf. Please call to discuss this issue with the office.
