We know that water is your plant’s lifeblood. It is paramount to have a properly designed irrigation system that will keep your plants healthy and vibrant. This also means your system should reduce risk of pest and disease damage and even protect the quality of your soil, all while reducing workload.
Poorly designed systems are failure-prone, can over- or under-water, and can even flood or erode landscaped areas. In most cases, low water pressure is the main reason for irrigation problems. Before you plant, your soil should be tested for drainage and absorbencies, and this will also help identify optimal ways to provide irrigation to the area. Our landscape designers can create and install irrigation systems
Aeration Your Lawn
Why Aerate Your Lawn?
Aeration is one of the most important maintenance practices we can do to help your lawn remain healthy and ward off problems. Compacted soil and heavy thatch are the two biggest challenges to a beautiful lawn. The cores you see on your lawn after aeration will break down gradually over the next week or two. This natural return to the soil helps hold the thatch to a desirable level. It really should be a regular part of your lawn maintenance program.
Lawn Aeration Benefits:
- Improvement of drainage
- Increases air, water and nutrient to the roots
- Helps relieve soil compaction
- Stimulates new growth
- Decrease thatch build-up
- During drought conditions, aeration helps water reach thirsty roots
- Creates a better environment for overseeding
- Increases the effectiveness of applied fertilizers
Spring and especially fall are the best times for aerating turf. We highly recommend doing this at least once a year. Aeration is a relatively low cost service that can enhance your yard and leave you with beautiful-looking turf.
