Lawn aeration is one of the most beneficial lawn maintenance treatments for a yard. The goal of lawn aeration is to produce a fuller and healthier lawn. This is accomplished by removing small cores of soil, grass and grass root around the entirety of the yard.
Removing small pieces of soil and grass allow the roots to receive air, moisture and fertilizer. In turn, this lawn service reduces the compaction of soil, thatch and excess water drainage.
To increase the health of your yard, lawn aeration should be performed at least once a year. The best time to aerate your lawn is after the winter season, when your grass is not covered in rain or snow.
Fertilization acts as a weed, bug and fungus control for your lawn. The amount of nutrients that a yard has is one of the most influential determinants of lawn health. If your yard is receiving the correct nutrients, your yard will be healthier, fuller and greener.
A fuller yard will not allow weeds to have as much room to grow. Lawn fertilization can also prevent the damaging effects of bugs and fungus, as both of these species contribute to the depletion of nutrients in soil and lawns.
Are you constantly removing weeds from your yard, and wondering why the weeds never go away? Different weeds grow better during different seasons. This means yards require year-round maintenance.
The easiest way to control weeds is by using a professional lawn maintenance service. The most common types of weeds in Boise are:
Clover: although there are over 300 species of clover, white clover is the most prevalent species found in yards. Mowing lawns high can be a deterrent for clover.
Dandelions: their yellow flowers and green leaves are connected to roots which grow deep beneath the surface of the soil, making it difficult to permanently remove this weed.
The most effective way to control weeds is by preventing them from growing in the first place. Senske specializes in weed prevention and weed control. If you don’t have weeds yet, call Senske to ensure you maintain a weed-free yard.
If you do have weeds, request a free estimate from Senske to remove them! With just a little bit of professional lawn care help, your yard can be transformed back into a lush, weed-free lawn.
It can seem almost impossible to remove bugs from your yard once they appear, but with professional bug control it’s possible! Senske technicians are trained and experienced in bug prevention and lawn insect control.
Many people think that their yard needs more water, when instead; their yard has been invaded by billbugs. If your lawn is turning brown and dying, don’t waste valuable resources and run up your water bill before checking your soil for grubs. Billbugs kill lawns by eating the roots of grass, which creates the appearance of a drought.
Billbugs are extremely resilient- they’re even able to survive as larvae during harsh, inversion-filled, Boise winters. They live in or below the soil level which protects them from the freezing temperatures and cold nights. In the spring they turn into beetles and lay eggs.
Cranberry girdlers are another bothersome lawn pest. They look similar to moths when they are full grown, typically during the summer months. Like the billbug, cranberry girdlers survive as larvae during the winter by eating grass roots.
There are over 10 types of lawn fungi in Boise. The most prominent fungi include necrotic ring spots, fairy rings and mushrooms. Each of these fungi has a different effect on lawns. They are similar in their aesthetically displeasing appearance and the damage they can cause to lawns if not properly controlled.
Necrotic ring spots create brown patches in yards. They flourish during the hot months and usually die-down in the colder months. However, recurrent necrotic ring spots can permanently destroy grass.
Fairy rings produce circles, or rings. They feed on thatch. If one fairy ring appears in your yard, you’ll want to address it before one ring becomes many rings.
Mushrooms can grow from tree stumps and roots under the surface of the grass. In order to eliminate mushrooms, the root or tree stump that it is feeding off of must be removed.
Fungi can be controlled by making sure your lawn receives ample amounts of nutrients. Fertilization helps prevent lawn fungus.
