Our weekly mowing service includes mowing and striping all turf with blades that are sharpened daily. String trimming around all obstacles including trees, landscape edging, signs, sidewalks and curbs. Stick edging of driveway, sidewalks and curbs monthly. Blowing off grass clippings from hard surfaces and landscaping. We also bag the turf during the last two mowings in the fall to give the yard a clean appearance before the final fall cleanup.
SPRING & FALL CLEANUP
Spring cleanups start as soon as the grass is dry enough for lawn equipment to enter the yard. We start off with dethatching your lawn. This process pulls up thatch and dead grass from winter kill or voles. We then blow out the landscaping and collect all debris which are hauled off site to the nearest compost site.
Fall cleanups usually start the last week of October depending on how the leaves are falling. We blow out all of your landscaping and around any obstacles in the yard. We then collect all debris, cut the turf to 2.5" and haul all debris to the nearest compost site.
FERTALIZER & WEED CONTROL
With Ground FX Lawn & Landscape you can sit back and watch your lawn flourish knowing you have highest quality in care for your lawn. Our state certified applicator is well trained and detail oriented. Our turf health programs are designed with sensitivity towards your family and the environment. There are many different turf health programs to choose from to fit your needs. Our programs include a blend of granular and blanket spraying applications. Unlike many lawn care companies, we spot spray during all of our granular visits.
Dethatching and aerating are very important for your turf's health. Thatch is a layer of dead grass and other debris between the grass leaves and your soil. You shouldn't have more that 1/2 inch of thatch in your lawn. Too much thatch starves the soil and grass roots of air, water, and nutrients. Dethatching also gives your turf a head start by "fluffing" the grass up in the spring and gets rid of any dead grass from winter kill. The photo to the left is an after picture of a yard that was dethatched in the spring. After dethatching is complete we collect the thatch and haul it off to a compost site.
Aeration is one of the best practices in maintaining a healthy lawn. When you aerate your lawn you provide many benefits including:
Minimizes soil compaction so that roots can grow
Nutrients and water have better access to root system
Decreases thatch build up
Makes overseeding more effective
The best time to aerate is in early fall when the turf isn't susceptible to weed growth. Aeration is done by taking plugs or cores out of the soil approximately 2" - 3" deep to loosen the soil. It is best for your turf to leave the plugs so that they can work back into the soil and will be unseen within 2 - 3 weeks.
