Lawn Care Program-

 Dethatching- Thatch buildup and soil compaction are both conditions that can cause lawns to struggle. When they are severe, they can ruin a lawn. Luckily, both are problems that can be resolved. Simply dethatching or aerating the lawn will provide an immediate fix, but it is also important to find out what the contributing factors are and make some changes so that the solution will be long-term, not just temporary

 

Core Aeration-

It’s a fact. Aeration is one of the best things you can do for your lawn. Late summer and/or early fall is the optimum time to do it.

 

Compacted soil and heavy thatch are the two biggest obstacles to a beautiful lawn. They tend to suffocate grass plants by preventing air, water and nutrients from reaching the root zone. Lawns with compacted soil tend not to perform at optimum levels and take longer intervals to recover from adverse weather conditions. A lawn with excessive thatch is more susceptible to diseases such as Brown Patch and Fusarium Blight.

 

K. Macken Landscaping now offers a core aeration program to help. Aeration is accomplished through the use of a machine equipped with cylinder-like tines designed to penetrate and shatter the soil. Cores of thatch, soil and grass are actually pulled out of the ground during the process. The plunging action of the tines opens up the soil, allows grass plants to breathe, permits better utilization of fertilizer, air and water and promotes a deeper, healthier root system.

 

Other benefits of aeration:

Increases air, water and nutrient movement to the root zone

Intensifies decomposition of thatch

Helps reduce soil compaction

Stimulates new growth

Improves soil drainage

Provides a better environment for over seeding

 

Increases the effectiveness of fertilization and other lawn care products

 

 

Chemical Treatments-

1- Early Spring- Allows for quick spring green up & crabgrass control

#2One application of Lime-Liming is done to correct the pH value of the soil. Most soil in our area will be naturally acidic (e.g. low pH value) and lime (calcium) will raise the soil pH. Grass grow best at soil pH around 6.0-7.0.
#3 - Spring-continues green up and controls weeds
#4-Summer-prepares your lawn for summer stress while controlling surface feeding insects
#5 - Early Fall-promotes turf to spread & thicken
#6- Fall- Provides lasting green into early winter months with touch up weed control
#7-Winter-promotes root development and provides winter hardiness
