Is your lawn dead, dry, damaged and barely hanging on? Hoping a little food and water might revive it to its former glory? Perhaps it’s time for a lawn do-over! The family at Greenskeeper Professional Lawn Care has been growing and caring for turf for over 40 years. Over these years, we have done thousands of successful renovations and repairs using only the best soil, seed, and additive products.
If you are dealing with dead spots, tree removal, new construction, poor drainage, grub damage or undesirable grass types at your property here’s how Greenskeeper can help:
Dead Spots – It is important to first assess what is causing the dead area. The Greenskeeper technicians will diagnose and address the problem for you. Typically, the remaining damaged grass will need to be fully removed by dethatching the area. Adding quality soil and seed is the next step to improve these troubled areas.
Tree Removal – After a tree has been cut down and removed, the ground stump is usually left. Often the majority of the stump debris is removed but too much sawdust and wood chips are left behind to grow healthy grass. After removing this excess material, adding quality soil and seed is the next step to cover these spots.
New Construction – Once construction such as a new addition, home renovation, pool installation or other hardscaping is complete, lots of rocks and clay-based soil will typically be left exposed in the surrounding areas. What is typically done,???
Poor Drainage – If your property has poor drainage and areas that collect water on a regular basis, you may develop problems such as grass dying off due to oversaturation and turf disease issues. In order to fix these issues, the water must be re-routed by re-grading the yard to encourage proper drainage.
Grub Damage – After grubs have finished feasting on the roots of your grass, you are typically left with large areas of completely dead turf. The damaged grass will need to be completely removed, then quality soil added and seed planted to bring your lawn back to life. Greenskeeper has the correct insect control materials to prevent the problem recurring next year.
Undesirable Grass Types – If your yard has too many different grass varieties, you may want to replace it with a single turf type to achieve uniform color and growth in your lawn. An overall mottled appearance occurs because some grasses tend to go dormant earlier in the fall and also to wake up a bit later in spring.
While every lawn repair is unique and may require different maintenance in order have successful growth, the best thing you can do for your newly sprouted grass is to give it time. Please note that newly seeded areas may need extra TLC for up to entire year. Here are some general factors that may affect your results:
Unlike a typical watering schedule, new grass needs more frequent watering. Remember, rain can count as water if it is significant enough.
Lawns on life support and in need of a do-over are lawns that show significant damage. Regular feeding and watering deeply are excellent for maintaining relatively healthy lawns but unfortunately, lawns past the point of no return simply won’t benefit from extra food and water. Sometimes it’s just easier to start over from scratch.
Greenskeeper recently came out to my home to give the lawn a Spring treatment. I have been using them for a couple of years now. The technicians who come out are great and never a bother at all. They do what they have to do and go–quickly and quietly. The company has great pricing too which is a good reason I stay with them. I highly recommend them. I have no complaints!
Greenskeeper has been doing lawn maintenance and weeding on our property for a while now, and we have yet to have any problems with their service. They come out routinely to do touch ups and are always right on time. They do a great job on the maintenance, and actually leave us an invoice in the mail telling us the rundown of exactly what they did that day. You don’t have to be there while they do their work either; we can trust them to get the job done efficiently, without any supervision! It’s highly convenient!
What I like the most about the people at Greenskeeper is that they are very reliable. I never have to worry about them coming or doing a great job. They are always on time and the work that the do makes it so that I have a great looking lawn without having to do any work myself. They have a really good rate which is totally worth the time saved working on my lawn. I have already recommended to some of my neighbors and friends and I will continue to recommend them.
I have been very happy with the Greenskeeper company! They are a good lawn care company and their employees are friendly and conscientious people. I would highly recommend the company to everyone! They do a good job for me!
