5 Steps for a Healthier Lawn!
- Eliminate unwanted vegetation – When weeds or objectionable grass varieties exist in the lawn, vegetation control may be applied to begin restoration. These control products have no residual soil activity and will not leach into desirable vegetation.
- Prepare for Seeding – When vegetation control is not necessary or 7 to 10 days following control application, vertical slicing or aeration is necessary to penetrate the thatch and establish a seedbed. This process allows seeds to make direct contact with soil and avoid seeds germinating on top of dead organic matter. Soil pH problems may also be corrected with application of lime or sulfur. Starter fertilizer will be applied to insure nutrient availability to the developing seedlings.
- Seeding – Improved turf-type varieties will be selected to assure a uniform, healthy, disease-resistant lawn. Only premium quality seed will be used to insure superior results.
- Keep Soil Moist – Until seedlings are well established, they need moisture daily for eight weeks. You should understand that your part in the restoration, the daily watering, to maintain moisture at a depth of 2 inches, is vital. The restoration cannot be successful without adequate moisture. Lawns must be watered regularly after seed establishes. We visit clients to ensure compliance with watering. Watering restrictions are not our problem.
- Watch the Grass Grow – You will see continued improvement in the lawn for four to five months following restoration.
To keep turf healthy and to prevent problems from recurring, you need a regular, continuous program of fertilization, watering, mowing, weed and insect control following restoration, in addition to your diligent watering and cutting at the proper height.
Our Guarantee ensures that your lawn will be substantially improved. We will reseed in the areas provided that the seed has not been drought stressed or allowed to dry out, due to lack of watering.
