Lawn Care

Seasonal Lawn Mowing and Trimming

Lawn mowing and trimming is one of the best ways to keep your lawn healthy and protect your property value. Grass develops new growth at the crown, so a proper lawn mowing stimulates the plant to become dense and healthy resulting in a rich, thick turf.

Premium Turf Care

Lawns that receive regular chemical treatments are greener, more weed-free, and healthier. Our customized early season applications will give your lawn a great head-start for the growing season. Our special mixture of weed-killing formula eliminates weeds more quickly and is environmentally friendly. Your Landscape Partner uses organic products wherever and whenever possible.

Core Aeration

The heat and dryness of summer has caused a great deal of stress for the lawns in the area. With the cooler temperatures on the horizon, now is the perfect time to schedule your lawn aeration service. Aerating is the best way to improve air/gas exchange and water/nutrient intake. Due to soil compaction throughout the year, lawns rarely thrive without aeration. The benefits of aeration include reducing soil compaction, allowing more efficient watering and fertilizing, enhancing root growth, enriching surface soil, and decreasing water runoff.
Aeration is one of the best things we can do as preventative medicine for lawns. Aeration loosens the soil and allows air, water, and nutrients to reach your lawn roots. It is also the best way to help correct the problem of excessive thatch build-up. Additionally, aeration of the lawn improves drainage and the up-take of water by the grass and encourages deep root growth.


Overseeding your lawn will help to fill in sparse areas where the grass has died off. Our professionals can top dress, aerate, and overseed your lawn resulting in a more lush and healthy landscape that will be the envy of your street.


Thatch is an interwoven layer of mostly dead roots, crowns, and stems. Thatch builds gradually beneath the grass surface and is located between the soil and the green lawn. Since thatch is not as visible as a pesky weed that keeps coming back it sometimes goes unnoticed and untreated. Dethatching or more commonly known as power raking is the process of removing the thatch buildup.

  • Thatch can be very damaging for the following reasons.
  • Prevents water and nutrients from reaching the plant roots.
  • Absorbs pesticide/fungicide, preventing them from doing their job.
  • Reduces space available for new grass. When crowded by thatch, new grass tends to grow rapidly as they seek light and space, thus producing long, thin leaves with shallow roots.
  • Grass root systems can grow into the thatch rather than into the soil.
  • Harbors diseases such as bipolarize leaf spot, summer patch, and dollar spot.
  • Aggravates insect problems. Thatch favors insects by hiding them from their predators.

Lawn Composting

The process of spreading turf amendment organically enhanced soil across the entire surface of the lawn at 1/4″ thickness to:

  • Encourage deeper rooting.
  • Improve soil structure.
  • Reduce soil compaction.
  • Improve drought tolerance.
  • Uniform texture & consistency.
  • Increase water holding capacity.
  • Increase air space in soil.
  • Add organic matter.
  • Add nutrients.
  • Loosen heavy clay soils.
  • Increase nutrient availability.
  • Help reduce soil-born disease.
  • Help reduce thatch.
  • Increase soil microbial action.

Integrated Pest Management

Integrated Pest Management (IPM), is a planned program that coordinates economically and environmentally acceptable methods of pest control with the judicious and minimal use of toxic pesticides. Our IPM program is based on a careful and constant monitoring of your property, taking preventive steps to preclude a pest problem. Our goal is to manage and foresee pest problems using a full spectrum of control measures in a coordinated, integrated manner. Along with rapidly identifying and remedying any pest attacks that may occur before damage is severe.

Pruning and Trimming

Pruning and trimming is needed to help your landscape flourish. Our professional pruning services will enhance the natural beauty of your trees and shrubs. Pruning will also help you preserve the strength and stature of the plant. Trimming addresses care concerns such as safety, structural integrity, shape and appearance.
Tree trimming is an important maintenance practice in professional tree care. If done properly, it can become an important tool in helping you achieve your dream landscape. There are basically two tree care objectives in pruning trees and trimming shrubs. Hazard reduction tree pruning addresses a specific danger caused by visiblydefined safety issues in your trees. Maintenance tree pruning preserves or improves tree health and structure. Special care is taken to encourage structural integrity, appearance, tree safety and the overall health of your trees.


Tree pruning and tree trimming by tree care professionals provides a variety of benefits to your trees. Tree pruning for health includes the removal of broken, diseased, or dead branches in order to prevent decay-producing fungi from penetrating and infecting other areas of your tree. In some cases, the removal of live branches is necessary to allow increase exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy.

Developmental tree pruning is the process of trimming trees for structural enhancement. It is accomplished through pruning a tree in its early stages of development. These are the most important procedures for your new plantings to help ensure a desirable branch architecture and structural integrity. In addition, proper tree trimming of young specimens now, will reduce the potential of costly problems and the need for structural support as your landscape matures.

Tree pruning for appearance and restoration is essential for maximizing the beauty of formal plantings and landscapes. In particular, we advocate aesthetic tree care when the characteristic form of your trees has deteriorated.
