core aerating

We provide core aerating services which reduces water run-off, improves fertilizer and nutrients uptake, helps with air and soil exchange, reduces compaction and allows deeper root structure.

dethatch service

Dethatching is the process of removing the build up of dead grass in the lawn.  Our process consist of mechanically raking lawn, bagging up the thatch, and hauling away.

This process helps the lawn breath and gives it a kick start to start growing.  It also helps prevent fungus and insect damage throughout the season.  Also if you are going to over seed, it help to prep the soil and by getting the thatch layer out it will result in a better seed germination success rate.

The best time to do dethatching is early, early spring before the grass starts to grow.  That way you are not removing a bunch of the green healthy grass as well.
