Maintenance

A pile of grass will not provide a good healthy environment for your grass. They’ll block the rays of light from the sun and also provide an unintended mulch by trapping moisture, which will eventually lead to the damage of the turf of which they cover up. It’s recommended that when the leaves begin to heap you blow or rake them away as often as you can, or contact us and we will be there to provide you with services. Note: Even if you see that the leaves on the tree are bare, still locate any area were the leaves might have piled up, rake or blow them off, because if this is not done, come spring, the grasses under the dead heap of leaves would be dead.

If your lawn isn’t getting at , a simple rain gauge is a useful way to keep track, then keep the sprinklers or irrigation system running until the end of October. By that time,

Your lawn should be getting at least an inch of water a week, the use of a measuring container or a rain gauge can be very useful to allow you to keep track and prevent over watering. Its recommended that you keep the watering, either by sprinklers or whatever irrigation system you use till the end of October. At this period you mind want to prevent any unnecessary damage by disconnecting hoses and flushing the irrigation system to avoid frozen pipes and spigots.

It’s recommended to do a regular aeration at least once every couple of years, it prevents soil compaction and covered with thatch, a thick layer of roots, stems, and debris that blocks water, oxygen, and nutrients from reaching the soil.

A core aerator will fix the problems listed above by mechanically removing plugs or “cores” of soil and thatch from a lawn. Core aeration reduces soil compaction, creating a channel through which oxygen, water, and nutrients can penetrate the soil i.e all those holes in your turf will let the fertilizer reach right to the roots.
