Maintaining a healthy and beautiful yard requires more than simply watering and mowing your lawn. There are many aspects of landscaping care to consider that will directly impact the growth and even survival of your lawn, trees, shrubs, and plants. You can count on Colonial Lawn & Garden to perform the various important tasks to keep your outdoor areas looking their best.
Core aeration is a process where a machine pulls plugs of soil, thatch, and grass out of the ground. You may have observed public lawns or neighbors’ yards with these plugs spread across the lawn. This service is performed once a year, and typically in the spring or fall. Aeration allows water, air, and nutrients to penetrate the soil. When nutrients penetrate deeper into the root zone, they become available to the turf. Aeration is especially vital if you have compacted, poor or clay-heavy soil that has been impacted by heavy equipment or lots of foot traffic. At Colonial Lawn & Garden, we will perform the aeration task for you and make sure it is carried out properly, so your lawn reaches its full growth potential and continues to look beautiful.

Our technicians will spread an organic compost over your lawn, which provides numerous health benefits, such as your grass receiving necessary nutrients, and smoothing out the ground surface. You might decide to overseed your lawn if it appears somewhat thin. Our technicians will spread grass seed over your lawn, allowing the open spots to fill in. By having Colonial Lawn & Garden implement top dressing and overseeding, your lawn will look lush, green, and healthy.
Excessive thatch, or a layer of roots, dead grass shoots, and stems that rest on top of the soil, are all harmful to your lawn’s health. Our expert lawn-care technicians from Colonial Lawn & Garden will thin out the thatch through power raking, which enables the fertilizer, water, air and other nutrients to penetrate the ground and reach your lawn’s roots. This is why it is so important to de-thatch so your lawn can receive all the nutrients necessary to live and thrive.
