What’s Included in Lawn Care Service?

Mar 11, 2024 | Uncategorized

Lawn care companies offer several services for residential and commercial properties. At Natural Way Lawn, we can include fertilization, weed control, soil testing, and more in your landscape treatment plan. Here are several features of our professional lawn care services:

Fertilization

When you hire a lawn care company, they can tell you how healthy your lawn is in its current condition. They can also recommend ways to improve the condition of your grass. Fertilization provides the nutrients needed to make grass grow into a green and lush lawn. Natural Way Lawn provides fertilizers that have fewer chemicals. We spread the fertilizer evenly around your yard to encourage growth.

Weed Control

When weeds start to grow in a yard, they can spread quickly and take over the lawn. Weed control is a service that many lawn care companies provide. We include weed control with our fertilizers to improve the health of your yard. We offer different programs based on the needs of your lawn and your preferences. Our Naturally Green Program applies weed control only where it’s needed, helping to reduce the amount of chemicals in your yard. Our Naturally Organic Lawn Program uses herbicide to kill weeds and inhibit their growth while improving soil quality to prevent future dependence on chemicals.

Aeration

Aeration is a lawn care service that helps produce deeper and healthier roots. This process creates small holes in the grass, allowing water, air, and fertilizer to get down to the roots. Aerating the soil helps to prevent it from becoming too compacted, which limits the amount of nutrients that can get to the roots.

With improved aeration, the grass grows faster and fuller. The roots grow deeper, which makes the grass stronger and more resistant to weeds. Our team will come and look at your lawn to determine if it needs aeration services and how often. Some properties require multiple aerations each year, while others may only need one.

Insect Removal

Insects and unwanted pests can be harmful to your lawn. Part of a lawn care service includes getting rid of insects, such as cutworms, chinch bugs, and billbugs. Left unattended, they can ruin your lawn and cause the grass not to grow or to look poorly.

Grubs are other pests that need to be dealt with. They feed on the grass’s roots, making it harder to recognize their presence. Once they have infested the yard, patches of grass will turn brown. We don’t wait for these pests to destroy your lawn. We can apply an insecticide in the spring to kill the eggs before they hatch and begin eating the plants or roots.

Flea and Tick Treatment

Even if you maintain your lawn, you can end up with fleas and ticks. Mice, rats, squirrels, and other wildlife may bring these pests when visiting your yard. They can attach to your pets and come into the house. To help prevent an infestation of fleas or ticks, you can treat your lawn.

Our team of professionals will come out and treat your lawn for fleas and ticks. Our treatments aim to kill the eggs along with the grown pests. With regular treatment, you can protect your pets while they play outdoors. We can also set a consistent treatment schedule during flea and tick season.

Soil Testing

Lawn care providers offer soil testing as an inexpensive way to determine the health of your lawn. It tells you the level of certain nutrients that are key to the health of your grass, such as potassium, calcium, magnesium, and zinc. The fertility of the soil changes based on the time of year and the amount of fertilizer used on the lawn.

Our team at Natural Way Lawn will test your soil for the basic nutrients and additional minerals if needed. We recommend having the test completed in the spring to allow us to treat any deficiencies and form a baseline for your lawn. A soil test is usually only needed once every two or three years.

Disease Control

Certain types of diseases, such as dollar spot, powdery mildew, and lawn leaf spot, can affect different grasses. Overwatering or underwatering can also lead to disease in plants. Lawn professionals can detect a fungus that may have invaded your lawn. Left untreated, the issue can spread, causing your grass to fail to thrive.

Our lawn care team will check your lawn for any signs of disease, such as discolored or moldy patches. If we find issues, we’ll develop a customized plan to treat the problem. Our goal is to restore the health of your lawn with the proper treatment plan, whether that involves adjusting fertilization amounts or applying fungicide.
