Aeration & Seeding
Restores the old worn out grasses with the latest varieties that are more drought, insect and disease resistant. Sometimes even great looking lawns need to be aerated and seeded from time to time. Grasshopper Lawns has been seeding and improving lawns since 1964.
An effective crabgrass control program should be started in the spring. 100% control is unlikely because of changing weather conditions, timing of application, cultural practices such as mowing, and number of years of treatments. Ideally, 90% control can be obtained by preventing this weed before its spring germination.
Lime “sweetens” your soil in areas where soil is naturally “sour” or acid. This is extremely important to growing healthy turf. Grasshopper Lawns can help improve your lawns color and density, control thatch, and increases root development with an annual lime application.
To understand what is going on with your lawn, its important to know what’s going on under your lawn. Grasshopper Lawns provides a soil test service which includes taking soil samples, sending them to a state certified lab, reading the results and recommending solutions to you.
This is probably the most misunderstood but most beneficial service your lawn could have. Core aeration helps control thatch, improves the soil structure, helps create growth pockets for new roots, and opens the way for water and fertilizer to get into the root zone of your lawn. Grasshopper Lawns recommends annual aeration for most lawns.
Lawns with Few Weeds
Some weeds can be pulled out of your yard by hand, but many will grow right back because of their deep root system.
