Mowing, Residential and Commercial

Residential starting at $50 per cut.

Bagging/mulching

Grass clippings are 80% water, and also have a third of the fertilizer your turf needs. Mulching doesn’t cause thatch buildup! Excessive watering and fertilizer do. We mulch a third of the residential grass we cut.

Edging

Trimming along a driveway, sidewalk or a dirt edge. $1.50 per foot.

Hedge Trimming

Spring Cleanup

Power raking helps reduce the thatch in lawns, it also cuts roots making grass thicker. It reduces the risk of chinch bug infestation.
What’s Involved
Cutting down some shrubs, blowing leaves from beds, and dethatching.

Aeration

Core aeration pull plugs out of the ground allowing air, water and nutrients into the root zone. The cores break down easily with weather and mowing. Starts at $90.
When to Aerate
In spring or fall are a good times to aerate. After a rain is a great time to Aerate as penetration of up to 2 inches is beneficial. Core aeration is the best form as it removes cores, which break down over time. It looks messy but as grass grows and is mown these break down. This should be done every two years to increase water penetration and let air into the root zone of turf.  Poking causes additional compaction, while coring doesn’t.
Top dressing
Compost applied after aeration gives the grass a natural slow release feeding, seeding grass into the compost allows the existing grass to get thicker which reduces weed infestation. When over-seeding, it is recommended to use a starter fertilizer. Starter fertilizer contains Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. Phosphorus, due to a ban, cannot be applied to lawns unless you are seeding new grass or over-seeding. Top dressing is done in spring or fall. But not when it is very hot.

Fertilizing

The average yard under 10,000 square feet starts at $80 per application.
What kind of fertilizer?
A well balanced fertilizer 30-0-08 or 33-0-11 or 28-0-10 are good fertilizers to use. The middle number 0 is Phosphorus, due to a ban it cannot be applied to lawns unless we are over-seeding or starting a new lawn.

Weed control

Starts at $275 for two applications of Fiesta in spring. a third fall application would be extra.
Why spray?
Turf looks better if the weeds are taken care of. Grass doesn’t need to compete with anything.
When?
Spring is the best time, as Fiesta works best in cool weather. A third application in fall just before a killing frost also works well.
What Product?Fiesta is an Iron-based bio chemical which helps the grass green while suppressing weeds. Fiesta is the only product we can use on lawns due to a Pesticide Ban which came into effect last year. It isn’t as effective as it only eradicate top growth, but two applications 21 days apart destroys the plant. Fiesta dries in 2-3 hours, same day visible kill, no odor, reseeding in a day, kills weeds not lawns.
We are Licensed and insured for weed control and have a truck mount sprayer. We use a bio chemical Fiesta, spraying the lawn twice in 21 days to suppress weeds. Fiesta works quickly turning the dandelion brown the same day as spraying.
