Let Mike’s give your lawn thicker growth, better color, and greater resistance to disease and drought!
Why? Many older lawns were established with common type turf grasses not suited for heat, drought or poor soil conditions. They are more often disease and insect prone, requiring more fertilizer and water, a precious resource we can’t afford to waste. New construction lawns are often stripped of topsoil and the compacted subsoil creates poor growing conditions.
A lawn restoration through over-seeding or sodding will upgrade your lawn and increase the value of your landscape. A well maintained lawn and landscape can add 15% to the value of your home. Over-seeding newer turf grass varieties into an older lawn will help it better withstand insects, disease, drought and foot traffic.
Where lawn quality is unacceptable, renovation may be necessary. Renovation involves planting grass seed into an existing lawn area, often adding new grass varieties to repair damage or increase tolerance to drought, shade, or wear. Renovation usually isn’t necessary until approximately 20-25% of the lawn is bare or covered with weeds.
Renovation should be considered if any of the following conditions exist in your lawn:
• Broad-leaved weeds such as dandelion, plantain, and knotweed, or grassy weeds such as crabgrass cover about 20-40% of the lawn area.Approximately 20-40% of the lawn is dead or has very sparse growth. This may be due to a variety of factors such as low soil fertility, drought and heat, insect damage, poor mowing practices, disease, moderate soil compaction, or increasing shade and competition from growing trees.
• Broad-leaved weeds such as dandelion, plantain, and knotweed, or grassy weeds such as crabgrass cover about 20-40% of the lawn area.The lawn is soft and spongy when walking across it and responds poorly to regular watering and fertilizer applications. This condition usually indicates excessive thatch (greater than inch). Thatch is a layer of partially decomposed grass stems, roots, and rhizomes (not leaves) at the soil surface but below the green vegetation.
• Broad-leaved weeds such as dandelion, plantain, and knotweed, or grassy weeds such as crabgrass cover about 20-40% of the lawn area.
