SOS, your lawn's cry for help, landscape maintenance

It’s Late Summer… Time to Renovate

SOS, your lawn's cry for help

“Beep-beep-beep, beeeep-beeeep-beeeep, beep-beep-beep.” 

You might recognize Morse Code for SOS, but do you recognize your yard’s cry for help?  Perhaps you have noticed large areas of dying grass, or encroaching weeds and unwelcome varieties of grasses attempting to take your lawn by storm.

If your lawn looks like a dejected patchwork quilt made of burlap and turf…it’s time to renovate.

Now, let’s be practical.  Having the nicest lawn on the block is only most of the reason for renovating.  By springtime, your yard will be covered in a dense, green, healthy growth that resists diseases and chokes out unwanted vegetation.

In our St. Louis climate, August is the optimal time to initiate this four-step process.  First, we test your soil to determine if there are any problems that need special attention.  Next, we eradicate weeds and unwanted vegetation.  The third step includes aeration, overseeding, and fertilizing.  Finally, we top-dress the soil with compost.

Make the grass greener on your side of the fence.  Call us today to schedule your lawn renovation.
