Proper PH Balance Management
Proper PH levels are essential for lawns and turf. Most soils in this area are acidic and require that Lime be added in order to maintain and keep the soil PH in balance. Alkaline soils can be treated with Sulfur to increase soil acidity. Our 5 Step Annual Lawn & Turf Care Program is most beneficial if the soil PH is at the optimum level of approximately 7.0.
There are many nuisance weeds typically found in our home lawns. Shades of Green, Inc.’s licensed and trained technicians will correctly identify specific weeds and control them properly. Listed below are the most common culprits and invasive weeds:
In severe cases of disease, properly timed fungicide treatments may be required to suppress and manage the problems. Our team will identify and recommend the best treatment option. Sometimes, not all damage to your lawn is disease related. Drought, pets, insects, and even excess traffic on lawns may resemble a disease problem. Below are some common fungal diseases to keep an eye out for.
Gray Leaf Spot
Completed annually, core aeration will encourage a thicker and more lush lawn. Mechanical Core aeration breaks up thatch and promotes deeper root growth, while allowing for better water, nutrient, and air intake.
Our mechanical over-seeding machine works by cutting a slit into your turf at the appropriate depth while inserting seed at the same time. This machine lays the seed at the critical points for seed to soil contact for germination to take place. Over-seeding also introduces new and better seed varieties to ensure for a beautiful lawn. This service is typically provided after core aeration has been completed.
Sometimes is it just better to start over! If a lawn is more than 50% weeds and mostly bare, our team may recommend a complete renovation. This will begin with a soil analysis and applications of broadleaf weed control. We will then remove thatch, add compost & amendments as needed according to the soil analysis results, aerate, and then over-seed in multiple passes to ensure a thick, beautiful lawn germinates!
