Turf Applications

Local soil in the New River Valley doesn’t contain the necessary nutrients to provide the type of rich, healthy, and sustainable surface that beautiful turf requires. Our lawn care program includes scheduled fertilizer and weed control treatments on top of routine soil sampling to determine the most beneficial products to use on your property.

We analyze the soil’s fertility, pH level, and micro-nutrient makeup and then treat your lawn accordingly. Treatments are spread out over the course of the year and are broken out into individual applications to build soil structure and chemistry. Contact us today for a free turf soil test and pair your turf applications with mowing to get the best looking yard in your neighborhood.

Aerating & Overseeding

We offer premium seed, coated for water retention and initial germination, will be applied at over-seeding proportions after coring. Application of a starter fertilizer to help with establishment of grass seedlings. Hole and plug dimensions are dependent on soil and environmental conditions at the time of service.

Benefits of Core-aeration include:

  • Reduced compaction in critical root zone of grass plant
  • Improved gas exchange from soil to air and improves infiltration of fertilizers
  • Improved wetting of dry or hydrophobic soils/ improved drying of wet soils
  • Improved root growth and shoot growth
  • Improved mixing of soil structure and decreased thatch layer
  • Aeration only can be performed at clients request.
  • Spring Aeration and Over-seeding is available upon request

Soil Test

A soil sample will be collected and sent to our laboratory partner for testing. Soil tests allow our horticulture experts to recommend specialty applications that will help benefit the soil chemistry of your turf areas beyond our six turf care applications. Once test results are received, any recommended changes or additions to your treatment plan will be proposed.

It is recommended to have pruning services performed at least two times a year.

Summer pruning is intended to occur after new spring growth and will typically be completed from May-August.

Fall Pruning is intended to keep your plant’s attractive appearance and ensure they are ready for spring growth. Fall pruning will typically be completed from October-December.

Winter Pruning will be completed during the season from December – March and is based on proper horticultural practices.


Spring Mulching improves moisture retention during periods of drought and reduces pressure from weeds. Spring Mulching is typically completed from late February to May. Fall Mulching benefits plants during winter months by stabilizing ground temperatures, improving moisture retention during periods of drought, and reducing pressure from weeds. Fall Mulching is typically completed from August-October.

Service includes:

  • Application of a pre-emergent herbicide to all mulch beds to help control weed seed germination for 2-3 months.
  • Creating a bed edge depth approximately 2-3″
    • Please contact your sales representative for a deeper edge to achieve a 3″+ bed edge so price adjustments can be made.
  • Application of double shredded hardwood mulch at a depth of approximately 1.5″ to previously mulched planting beds
