Aeration and Over-seeding
There can be many positive benefits brought to your lawn when you allow our Fishers Landscaping company to treat your lawn with aeration and over-seeding.
What is aeration?
It is the process of removing small plugs of soil (including the grass) from the ground, which creates new air pockets in the lawn and allows the roots to absorb nutrients, which, in turn, will strengthen the root system.
What are other benefits of it?
Lawn aeration also helps to decrease the buildup of thatch, which is when dead roots, rhizomes, and lawn clippings have built up between the surface of the soil and the layer of grass. Ideally, roots, rhizomes, and clippings would be broken down naturally before reaching this point, but if this buildup of thatch does happen and becomes too thick, it will act as a sponge and soak up the moisture in the roots.
This process will prevent the roots from properly affixing themselves into the soil. The root system will not be able to get the necessary nutrients it needs to endure temperature changes and maintain good health long-term. Moreover, excessive thatch provides the perfect breeding ground for pests like insects and grubs, which will damage the lawn even more.
When is the best time to get my lawn aerated?
Our Fishers Landscaping company suggests that you get your lawn aerated in the fall. This will allow oxygen, fertilizers, and pesticides to penetrate into the root system, which will make your grass stronger and more resistant to the unpredictable weather of the Midwest.
Lawn Aeration provides an exceptional opportunity for lawn seeding. After you get your lawn aerated, our Fishers Landscaping company suggests you have your lawn seeded. This will help thicken up the turf layer of your lawn and reduce weed growth.
Weed Control and Prevention
Weed control is an option within our Fishers Landscaping company programs. When Lawn Care Fishers visits your home for your scheduled lawn fertilization, we will pin-point the problem areas and treat your lawn with a specific weed control that is both tough on weeds while being gentle on your lawn.
Fishers Landscaping also offers:
Common Weed Prevention
A healthy lawn is naturally resistant to weed growth. The thick root system that comes with a strong lawn will help choke out most unwanted weeds before they can cultivate and will simultaneously limit the regularity of weed development. Proper fertilization and watering will also help achieve this. However, even in the healthiest of lawns, this is not going to completely prevent weeds from showing up altogether.
Fishers Landscaping uses a superior weed remedy that will successfully kill your weeds without harming your lawn. I am sure you all have seen the unappealing effects of harsh weed products that successfully kill the weeds but destroy everything around it as well, leaving a brown ring of dead grass around the newly deceased weeds. This almost makes the yard look even worse than just leaving the weeds alive. This way of killing weeds is not recommended by Fishers Landscaping for your lawn to remain beautiful, let alone healthy. Such harmful products should only be used in areas that do not contain any existing vegetation like driveways and sidewalks.
No harm, only help from your Fishers Landscaping Crew!
Fishers Landscaping’s particular herbicides are safe for all types of grass while also being tough on weeds. It targets all of the typical lawn weeds, which includes: dandelions, clover, ground ivy, and wild violets. Fishers Landscaping’s delicate, yet effective herbicide will begin attacking weeds almost immediately. Over the course of a week to a week and a half, the weeds will noticeably shrivel up and eventually die.
Crabgrass and Nutsedge Prevention
There are some lawn weeds that require some extra attention for control, like crabgrass and nutsedge. Our Fishers Landscaping company provides preventative pre-emergent treatment which will limit crabgrass before it develops. Should any crabgrass or nutsedge appear in your lawn, Fishers Landscaping offers spray treatments during applications to remove these troublesome weeds. In addition, should a problem arise before we have had a chance to control your weed problem, our Fishers Landscaping company offers service calls between applications.
