We make recommendations and perform services that, through science and practice, are proven to improve the soil where all roots grow.
The following services are offered individually or as part of our annual lawn care packages:
Organic-based fertilizer and standard fertilizer
Organic fertilizer is the treatment closest to nature. By using natural ingredients, organic fertilizer helps build the soil so that it can later feed plants more efficiently. An organic fertilizer is an excellent choice to ensure that your lawn’s ecosystem returns to a healthy, balanced state and works well whether the soil is sandy or the grass is sparse. Standard fertilizer works quickly to feed the plant for a fast green up of your lawn. Made mostly of molecules like urea, ammonium sulfate, and others, standard fertilizer is water soluble and the nutrients are released with water.
Core aeration, the most common type of aeration, pulls plugs of soil from your lawn. The extra space helps alleviate soil compaction, which promotes root growth and helps break down the top thatch layer over the soil.
Seeding is a process that goes hand-in-hand with aeration. By seeding immediately after aeration, new grass can cultivate more easily. You’ll see thicker, lusher grass in your lawn faster than seeding alone can provide. Additionally, a seeding rotation can help fill in the bare and thin spots in your yard, reducing the amount of area where weeds can grow.
Broad leaf weed control (cover or spot spray) and Pre-emergent crabgrass control
With proper lawn care service, weeds can be greatly reduced in your yard. Weeds have a hard time surviving in the healthy, dense turf. Add over time, with proper aeration, seeding, and fertilization, weeds can be almost eradicated from your yard.
Soil Testing & Lawn Analysis
Soil testing and complete lawn analysis are key in the design of your lawn care program. Used together, they provide a roadmap for caring for your lawn. At Maier Tree & Lawn, we offer comprehensive soil testing which includes testing for various site conditions, expert analysis, and professional recommendations.
Turf diseases can develop on your lawn throughout the year. Most are a result of cultural practices within the specific conditions of your yard. Many turf diseases can be treated with fungicide, or a combination of fungicides.
Pesky grubs and bug can cause lots of issues in a lawn. Our insecticide and grub control is meant to prevent or stop damage to your lawn before it goes any further.
