Chemical Fertilizer: Sometimes, lawns need a little boost to become healthier. We can select the right nutrients for your lawn, and apply fertilizer during changing seasons to promote root growth.
Aeration Services: Proper core aeration is crucial to the health of your lawn. The purpose of aeration is to control thatch, provide roots with new pockets where they can grow, make it easier for water and fertilizer to reach the deeper layers of the soil and improve the soil structure.
Aeration is a process that consists in extracting small cores from the soil. Each core is no longer than 1 to 3 inches. Water is then used to melt the cores back into the lawn. The small holes allow water and fertilizer to reach deeper layers of the soil. Roots will then start growing towards these pockets filled with water and become stronger. Water, oxygen and fertilizer will move more freely into the soil thanks to the pressure relieved by these holes.
Aeration is needed once or twice a year if your lawn grown on a heavy clay soil (like on most properties in Utah) or if your lawn needs to be thicker.
Sod Installations: Installing sod is your best option if you need an instant lawn. Sod installation is a good way to avoid issues with mud, weeds or with soil erosion. Lawn will grow before the end of the growing season if the sod is properly installed.
Your lawn care specialist will be able to recommend the best sod for your property. Choosing sod installation is more expensive at first compared to grass seed. However, growing a lawn from seeds will end up costing the same since you will have to over-seed during the spring and fall directly after the first seeding in order to grow a thicker lawn.
It is necessary to prepare the soil before installing a sod. Organic matter is used to make the soil retain more moisture while retaining its draining properties. Aeration is needed to foster microbial activity. Deep watering is needed once the sod is installed. The water needs to reach at least 6 inches under the sod.
Seed Lawn Installations: Seeds are usually very affordable and can be used on large areas as long as the soil has been prepared. Make sure you buy the best seeds available to you. You will come across seed mixtures such as Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass or tall fescue but the quantities used vary from one mixture to another.
We use a mixture of topsoil and compost to amend your soil and cultivate it on at least 4″. It is best to remove any surface debris that might keep the lawn from growing properly.
