Installing or restoring a lawn the right way takes many steps. Whether it's a brand new lawn or giving your current lawn a makeover, we have the tools and knowledge to get your lawn started right, and keep it healthy.
The first step to your new lawn is making sure the area is graded properly. Correct grading will ensure adequate drainage, and will prevent pooling of water around your foundation. Our expertise will deliver the look you desire, and complete it properly.
- Top Soil
If needed, we will bring in topsoil to make sure there is a proper seed bed for the grass to get a jumpstart toward a thick, lush lawn. We will make sure to also remove any rock or debris in the soil that could lead to an undesirable look, or cause improper germination.
Our knowledge of the local growing conditions will determine what type of grass seed will grow and look the best.
We will give you the information you need to water your new lawn properly. Don't want to water it yourself? We will set up sprinklers on a timer to give you a worry-free, affordable watering system.
- Sod Installation
Sod is an option that will take you from soil-to-lawn in an instant. We will grade, topsoil and fertilize the area, and install sod. This gives you an established look immediately.
Did you know that your lawn needs to breathe? By penetrating the soil 2-3 inches, aeration gets crucial oxygen down to the roots to help promote their growth. Aeration also helps water and fertilizer infiltrate down to the root system of the lawn, as well as reducing compaction in the soil, allowing the roots to spread. Healthy roots equal a healthy lawn. Depending on the age of the lawn, we recommend aeration in the spring or fall, when roots are very actively growing.
We offer two (2) different types of seeding for your lawn. Both of these options will make your thin or patchy lawn thick and lush:
This procedure would occur immediately after the lawn is aerated, allowing the seed to land directly in the holes from the aeration.
Slice-seeding is done by a walk-behind machine that slices into the soil at various depths and places the seed directly into the soil. This is generally done in a minimum of two (2) different directions to ensure the entire lawn has been seeded completely.
