Most people are not aware of the benefits of lawn aeration, yet it is one of the most important treatments to maintain a healthy lawn. Aeration helps reduce soil compaction and keeps your soil in the best shape possible.
Rivermoore Landscape Group Core Aeration - We offer core aeration in Buford and surrounding cities.
Even with the best care available, lawns can thin out and loose color due to excessive thatch build up, hard/compacted soils, periods of high temperatures, high humidity and/or drought. Aeration is recognized by turf experts, such as golf course superintendents, as the best thing to do to control thatch, reduce soil compaction, fill in bare spots and revitalize growth.
The best time to have your lawn core aerated is after the threat of frost. This is usually after the second week of April and continues until the end of July.
There are more than a few turf damaging insects in Georgia that can cause grass to yellow, brown, or even die, especially if the grass is already stressed. Damage usually begins in scattered small patches, which may merge into large dead areas.
Insects that do infest lawns are often difficult to observe and their presence may go undetected unless careful observation is made during the growing season. Most homeowners overlook insect dame as it is easily mistaken for other problems such as drought damage or dog urine burn.
Rivermoore Landscape Group's professional staff is trained to look for and identify specific lawn insects found here in Georgia. In most cases, we can prevent extensive lawn insect damage before it even occurs..
Fleas are blood-sucking insects which cause great pain and discomfort. They are also carriers of many diseases. Ticks are parasites of warm-blooded animals including humans. Ticks can drain away the vitality and vigor of the animal they attack and they are also known to spread and carry serious diseases. Fleas and ticks can be controlled with proper treatment.
If you have a heavy infestation of fleas and/or ticks, ridding your pets and property of these irritating insects is a little more complex than one simple treatment of your lawn. With heavy infestation, it is recommended that on the same day your lawn is treated initially, you should also have your pets sprayed, dusted or dipped as well as have your house treated indoors.
Rivermoore Landscape Group offers an outdoor flea and tick control treatment. For best results, two treatments spaced two or four weeks apart are recommended. We also offer a four step program to prevent fleas and ticks throughout the year.
Does your landscape need to be freshened up with new Pinestraw or Mulch? Not only does new pinestraw and mulch look good but it is a very important in protecting your trees and shrubs. The benefits of having pinestraw or mulch are: Moisture retention, soil improvement over time and protection provided for the roots of your trees and shrubs.
Many Georgia lawns suffer from poor soil conditions such as heavy clay or sandy soils which don't permit proper air circulation or drainage. Over time, even the best lawns can become "thin and tired" and unfertile due to heavy foot traffic, extreme temperatures, insufficient watering or lack of fertilizer. As a result, the turf roots don't develop properly and your lawn might appear thin and brown in spots.
To thicken and improve the overall health of your lawn, apply top dressing. Top dressing is a fortified mixture of topsoil, compost, sand and other micronutrients that will help revitalize the soil. Top dressing reintroduces beneficial compounds that will restore the health of the soil and the results, generally visible within two weeks, are long lasting.
The top dressing blend is recommended for troublesome areas such as thinning or bare spots on your lawn. Sandy soils can also benefit from top dressing by increasing the ability to retain moisture and making the lawn more resistant to drought. Clay soils will drain better and this results in improved root development.
Fall Aeration/Seeding-the two step process guaranteed to improve your lawn
Rivermoore Landscape Group's core aeration treatment removes cores of thatch and soil to allow air, moisture and fertilizer to penetrate down to the root zone. The cores brought to the surface contain very important microorganisms, which help break down of the woody thatch tissue. This allows the roots of existing grass plants to spread out and grow deeper, creating a healthier, thicker lawn.
Over-seeding fescue seed in the fall, will fill-in bare or thin spots and help build a thicker lawn faster. The turf type tall fescue seed quickly takes root in the freshly core aerated lawn and provides new life to your already established grass.
