Making your lawn better 
 
Does your lawn need help?  We can analyze what the problem is, advise on possible corrective actions, develop the plan, and execute.  We can perform the suggested work for you, or if you like to "get your hands dirty" we"ll be happy to tell you what to buy and how to do it.  We provide the following services:
 
  • Core Aeration
  • Dethatching / Power Raking
  • Overseeding
  • Slit Seeding
  • Shade area planning 
  • Lawn Renovations
  • Soil Analysis 
  • Sodding
 
Call to arrange your on site lawn inspection to learn if any of these services are needed for your lawn.  However, below is a basic program we suggest all lawns in Northern Illinois follow:
 
  1. Organic fertilizer - 4 applications per season, possibly 5 based on certain variables
  2. Core Aeration - performed in the fall, as when the aerator tines sever the Kentucky Blue Grass rhizomes, it forces new shoot growth, thickening the lawn
  3. Fall Overseed - performed after the fall aeration at a rate of 2 pounds of seed per 1,000 sq ft.

Did you know... Thatch is actually caused by over fertilizing your lawn, not from leaving your clippings on top of the grass.  Call to see if your lawn needs to be dethatched.
