Water 3 times daily to keep new seed moist for up to 21 days. Watering schedule will differ based on soil types. It is very important not to over water or under water. If you have concerns, please reach out to our office.
Helpful Tip: Cut back on watering if at 6:00p your shoes become wet and leave a footprint on cement after walking on the lawn.
Grass should be cut NO shorter than 3.5in-4in. To ensure that your mower is correct, measure the blades from concrete or cement, while mower blades are off.

Helpful Tip: When turf is thick and healthy and is watered and mowed correctly our preemergent will last 90-120 days after application. If you experience crabgrass break through during the summer months, please note that it will die in the fall when we get the first frost.
When treating these persistent weeds, we are only able to kill what is on the surface, which explains their consistent regrowth throughout the growing season. This will take several applications throughout the year to keep them at bay.
We offer Core Aerations during the Spring and Fall. Aeration is the removal of soil plugs from the lawn, creating a direct passageway for water, oxygen, and fertilizer to reach the root system. This will help the roots to grow longer, which ultimately results in healthier grass.
CORE AERATION CAN BE DAMAGING TO:
This option is optimal to help reduce thatch build up. This is a liquid application that will create air pockets down in the root system and assist with soil decompaction and root growth. This is the best option for customer with irrigation systems, underground dog fencing and internet lines.
Spring planting is always followed by Summer stress, which ultimately thins the new stand and often necessitates Fall re-seeding. The benefits of Fall seeding include:
