Lawn Care Program

A plan can be customized to your lawn's needs. All lawns are different, so experts begin by analyzing your grass. The professional will determine the type of turf you have, the thatch level, and the turf density. The lawn care specialist will take into account the type of watering system you have, how much sunlight you get, and the quality of your soil. All these things are considered in deciding what it takes to get you the best lawn possible. You'll get 8 treatments a year to make your lawn look great from spring to winter.

Weed Control

There are nearly 200 types of weeds in Georgia. Some weeds, like crabgrass and dandelions, have deep roots. Pre-emergent products control some weeds, but others are treated when they appear. Different weeds pop up at different times in the year. A good lawn care program can't eliminate every weed, but it can control weeds with treatments.

Fertilization

Fertilization is an essential part of a lawn care program. It provides nutrients that produce healthy grass all year round. You can have one large delivery of fertilizer, but the better approach is to have applications and treatments throughout the year.

Aeration

Aeration helps your lawn stay healthy. A series of hollow coring tines are rolled over your lawn, puncturing the soil and removing soil plugs. This process gets rid of excessive thatch, decreases water runoff, and increases the amount of water that penetrates into the soil. The process helps your lawn's root system overcome drought conditions, diseases, and the effects of insects.

Overseeding

The pros know what type of turf needs overseeding and when to spread the seed. For example, cool-season turf must be re-established from seed each fall to fill in areas that are barren or thin. The overseeding is combined with aeration and regular watering to give you a thick and full lawn.

Disease

Lawn diseases are common in Georgia. If the lawn is diseased, you'll see patches of brown. The best practice is to have your lawn treated before the disease appears, but the disease can be cured with treatments. Count on lawn treatment services in Atlanta to return your lawn to a healthy state.
