Having a healthy lawn is not always simple. Every lawn is different. Trimmers Landscaping’s lawn care services division uses a variety of methods to get your lawn looking beautiful.
Irrigation is a very important part to controlling weeds. Weeds have the advantage once the moisture of spring is gone from the air and the heat of the summer sets in. Our irrigation maintenance program offers midseason adjustments to your irrigation system. As your lawn requires more water in the summer, we will adjust your controller to meet it. We also install “smart water” features into the irrigation systems that we install.
You may have enough water being applied to your lawn, but a thick thatch layer will prevent that water from getting down to the grass root zone. This will stress your turf grass in the summertime. Trimmer’s turf management program monitors the thatch layer in your lawn and will remove it if necessary so that your grass can make better use out of the water from your lawn irrigation and nutrients in the fertilizers we put down.
It all starts with a good foundation. Residential lawns in new construction areas are often cheated on the depth of quality loam. This can create a lot of weed problems, especially if the lot is sandy. The first step to improving any lawn is to provide a full 4 inches of compost-loam. We use a special blend of decomposed plant material and screened topsoil in all of our lawn installations. The compost provides living bacteria that helps the new grass absorb nutrients faster and establish quicker.
A thick lawn is the best deterrent for weeds. Depending upon your own lawn’s condition, we may recommend removing the top layer and regrading, or simply top dressing over the existing lawn with our composted topsoil.
