Lawn fertilization three seasonal applications included & recommended (early spring, summer and fall). The last application prepares your lawn for winter dormancy and a quick startup the following spring. Tree and shrub fertilization recommended & conducted two times per year (spring and fall) to promote healthy and lush growth.
Aeration recommended two times per year, in the spring and fall. Aeration plugs bring microorganisms back into the soil, helping to rotate ground nutrients. Dethatching recommended in springtime. This power-raking process removes excess thatch build up from root surface, allowing water, fertilizer and nutrients to penetrate to the root zone.
