Is your lawn looking a little disheveled? It might need a healthy dose of dethatching. This process, also known as core aeration or lawn aeration, greatly impacts lawn health. Sometimes mulch can build up in between the grass, soil and roots. If this layer of mulch becomes too great, the lawn can become deprived of air and room to grow.
Lawn aeration is a landscaping practice involving the strategic removal of pieces of soil, root and grass. It’s accomplished with a machine that covers the entire yard and takes out small amounts of root, soil and grass; in order to give healthy grass more space to grow.
If you’re interested in core aeration, give our professional lawn aerators a call at (253) 581-1881 or request a free estimate for high-quality lawn aeration and lawn maintenance. We’ve been aerating lawns since the 1940’s, so you can trust that we’ll do it right!
People oftentimes feel like it’s not essential to fertilize their yard if their lawn looks green. However, in order for your lawn to remain green and stay healthy, it needs continuous nutrients. Fertilizer is an essential landscaping strategy. The soil that your yard is planted on top of rarely ever has enough nutrients to sustain a lawn. Even if it does at first, over time, grass will use up the soil’s nutrients until it is depleted of nutritional value.
Fertilizers can either contain synthetic or organic materials. We let our landscaping customers choose what type of fertilizer they’d like for us to use. Synthetic fertilizers contain nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. Our organic fertilizers for lawns are made up of seaweed and chicken parts. Fish and seaweed are used to organically fertilize plants and shrubs.
The acidity of soil has a large impact on lawn health. Grass grows best in soil that has a pH level of 6 to 7; balanced between acidic and alkaline levels. If the pH level is above 7, the soil is alkaline and if it’s below 7, it’s too acidic. Soils with a high level of acidity will not grow grass effectively. The solution for acidic soil is a lime application.
Applying lime to a lawn can be a tricky process; lime applications should be applied during specific seasons and avoidant of periods where frost or dried grass is present. The process is accomplished by running a drop spreader in a strategic manner throughout the lawn area. Once lime has been spread evenly across the lawn, an application of water should be applied.
While many people might think their lawns need to be fertilized because their grass isn’t growing, it’s smart to check the pH balance in your soil before assuming your lawn needs fertilizer. When you call our professional lawn care company for landscaping services, we’ll check the pH balance of your lawn’s soil to test for acidity.
Because of the amount of moisture and shade we get in the Northwest, lawns are especially prone to moss. Moss usually grows in lawns that don't have enough fertilizer; lawns that lack nutrients like nitrogen are hot beds for moss. Another reason for moss growth is due to damaged grass from lawn pest infestations. Whatever the reason for moss growth, we can help you get rid of it and prevent it from growing again.
Weeds can be hard to control and unruly; especially in Tacoma, where lawns get an abundance of water. The list of common lawn weeds in the Pacific Northwest is extensive.
