Power raking (dethatching):
Power raking is an essential tool in keeping a lawn healthy and green. As dead grass and thatch build up on the soil, the thatch prevents much needed water and nutrients from reaching the roots of the grass. The thatch often builds up and makes the lawn look yellow instead of that nice green color. Power raking is a powerful tool in keeping your lawn healthy and strong. Power raking rates vary on the size of the lawn.
Aeration is another powerful tool in keeping your lawn healthy and strong. Core plug aeration inserts little holes or “plugs” into your lawn roughly three to four inches apart. These plugs can be anywhere from 1 ½ – 2” long. By aerating your lawn, you allow for many nutrients, water, and nitrogen to get straight into the roots of your lawn. Aeration is approximately $40-$45 for a regular sized residential lawn. Larger lawns may vary.
We recommend fertilizing your lawn at least three times a year. We like to do it around the holidays, (e.g. Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day). We have had success with a few types of fertilizers and we can discuss these options with you. For normal sized lawns, fertilizing prices start at $50 per application.
For lawns threatened by weed invasion, we recommend weed killer. In the past, we have been successful using weed and feed fertilizer to catch dandelions early in the season. We can also use weed killer that is specific to each type of weed, depending on your lawn’s needs. For normal sized lawns, weed killing prices start at $50 per application.
We also build and help fix any fencing problems you may have. We are able to build many different types of fences. If you need a whole new fence put in or are in need of just a few minor repairs, we offer all different types of fencing solutions. Prices are given on an estimate basis only.
Flower Bed Clean-up:
Another service we offer is flower bed clean-up. With this service, we like a detailed cooperation between both parties. For instance, something that we might consider a weed or disturbance, you might consider an attractive part of your flower bed. Flower bed clean-up prices are calculated on an hourly basis of $30/hour/employee.
We will turn on your sprinkler system, set the timing for your zones, and then fix any problems or broken parts. Sprinkler turn-on pricing is $30/hour/employee plus the cost of the repairs or parts.
