There is a lot that goes into lawn care. The average layperson thinks that all you have to do is to keep it cut, weed it and apply fertilizer in the spring and fall. That is true, but there is so much more. Due to the fact that Havertown is privy to four seasons, there are specific times when we must tend to our lawns and other times when we must allow it to lie dormant. Jake’s Tree Service & Landscaping knows lawns. We know when to plant and reseed. We also know when to give your grass time to regenerate. For expert lawn care, contact our veteran arborists.
Fertilizing & Mowing
At Jake’s Tree Service & Landscaping, we don’t just cut your lawn and keep it moving. We care for your lawn. Other landscaping companies will cut your lawn without inspecting its condition and without regard for the season. We are arborists, which means that we care for all living green things. Our training and years of study help us to facilitate the best love, care and attention for your grass. One of the things that we will do to guarantee that your lawn flourishes is to fertilize it according to the season and grass type. We will maintain the appropriate length so that it is strong and able to receive valuable sunlight and water without stress or strain.
Weeding And Reseeding
Weeds will suck the life out of your lawn. They grow at a faster rate than grass and don’t require require copious amounts of resources. This means that they can take over your lawn at an alarming rate. We don’t recommend chemicals when treating weeds because these same chemicals that will kill the weed will also damage your grass’ root system. Our team of landscapers is trained to pull weeds out by the root using their hands. Reseeding is necessary to renew the healthy growth of your lawn. We apply seeds right before fall so that when spring rolls around, you will have a vibrant green lawn.
Watering And Aeration
All living things, including humans need sunlight, water and oxygen to thrive. Grass needs the added element of nutrient rich soil. You may have an adequate sprinkler system, but part of what we do is focus our watering habits on areas that are prone to dryness. If we notice that a particular area of your lawn is brittle, your dedicated landscaper will make sure to use the hose or water canister to supply it with the water it so desperately needs. Aeration is necessary to allow the root system to grab hold deep within the soil. It also allows water to penetrate the soil, making it readily available for your lawn’s roots. Annual aeration is one of the services we provide.
Thatches, Depressions And Bumps
After the ice has thawed and the snow has melted, we are able to see the havoc old man winter wreaked on your lawn. There are typically many bumps and depressions in your lawn. Not only do they pose a hazard to an unsuspecting pedestrian, but they are also an eyesore. We will level the bumps and fill the depressions for you. This way you can stroll your lawn with ease. The grandkids can play without twisting their ankles. Thatches prevent necessary nutrients from getting to your grass. It’s hard work but we are pros. We will take the time to remove all the thatches so that your lawn can thrive.
