Lawn Edging

What is the finishing touch that will give you the professional look you want? Proper edging of your property will enhance your lawn and give you excellent curb appeal. A properly edged lawn also makes snow removal much easier. Make your lawn eye catching, get it EDGED!  Note: Edgings can be done anytime.

 

Lawn Aeration (offered in the fall)

By removing soil cores, aeration allows your lawn to breathe by providing a channel for fertilizer, water, and air to get down to the roots of your lawn encouraging deeper root growth. It also decreases water runoff and reduces thatch build up. The plugs then decompose naturally in a couple of weeks, also adding nutrients to the soil. Your lawn will be stimulated to grow new, more vigorous root systems, which will help prepare it for the inevitable stresses that come with our South Dakota climate. 

Although aerations can also be performed during the early spring, we recommend and schedule them for the fall time only, when the temperatures are cool or begin to moderate. Soil must be moist to do the aeration. Sprinkler heads and sprinkler boxes need to be marked prior to the service. Aerations are not recommended for new sod or newly seeded lawns less than 2 years old.


Slit-Seeding (offered in the fall)

Does your lawn need a little help thickening up? Maybe it was a tough summer and you have some patches to fill in. Have your large shade trees thinned out your lawn over the years?  Let us know if you need our help over-seeding these spots. Our slit-seeder machine will cut a channel into the dirt & drop the grass seed into that channel. This allows a much better seed-to-soil contact, increasing your chances of germination. The cost is dependant on square footage. Give us a call today to get a price quote & to get on the schedule! NOTE: seeding should be done before the end of September for optimal growth.

 

Grub Control

Grubs naturally occur in lawns, but it's identifying 2 or more in a square foot that determines an infestation, which usually occurs during the months of July and August.  Brown spots appear in the lawn and the turf is easily lifted back, like carpet. Take a proactive approach with our Preventative Grub Control and prevent the damaging effects of grubs and other turf inhabiting pests by killing them at their egg stage BEFORE the damage occurs. We use a systemic insecticide that is applied to the lawn and is absorbed by the grass roots and distributed throughout the plant tissue for optimal defense. This insecticide will help protect your lawn from the damaging brown spots that grubs and other turf pests cause in the late summer months. It will be applied towards the end of May.

In situations where the Preventative Grub Control was not applied, and a grub infestation is identified, we can apply a different grub control to control the problem. It is a granular application that needs to be watered in heavily for best performance.  It is labeled to kill, among other underground insects, grubs, sod webworms, and billbug larvae. Any grub damaged areas will likely need to be reseeded to become established again.
