Aerating creates space in the soil for air, water, and nutrients to reach the plant roots where they are most needed. Soil can become compacted from heavy rain, foot traffic or snow cover. Aerating soil in fall will help prepare the lawn for winter and allow the grass plants to absorb as many nutrients as possible.
Your grass is still growing and possibly recovering from drought or other summer stresses. Fertilizing is important because now your turf is storing vital nutrients for winter, so making sure it has enough nitrogen and potassium will help keep it healthy through the colder months and ready to thrive in the spring.
We perform a system blow-out for your sprinkler to prevent frozen or burst pipes over the winter. This is a must -do!
Over time thatch, or dead vegetation, becomes interwoven and forms a mat, or thatch layer. This layer prevents air, nutrients and water from reaching your turf’s roots. Dethatching will break-up this layer so that it doesn’t suffocate your lawn.
Compost Tea replenishes the soil with living microbes to increase nutrient levels. This will ensure that your soil remains healthy during the winter so that when spring arrives, your turf and gardens will flourish!
Whether it’s your vegetable or flower beds, it is necessary prepare them for the winter freeze so that next year’s gardens will flourish. This may include removing spent annual and vegetable plants so that pests don’t invade, amending the soil with nutrients, and adding mulch to provide a protective layer during the cold months.
