Experigreen Lawn Care in Brighton excels at all the lawn care services that we render. Whether it is pest or mosquito control, or seeding, we do every job with equal effort and care. Our business also prides itself on our honor. We would never attempt to recommend a lawn service that you do not need. A small, individual operation such as ours will depend even more heavily on word of mouth references from our customers than a larger corporate entity. Establishing and preserving trust is the surest method to make that happen. If customers ever lose their trust in us, we would not be able to continue our operation. This goes doubly true for our business because not only is it small, but also newly established. So when we say that you will need our aeration service, please take our advice to heart. The quality of your lawn will depend on it. Aerating is a less commonly known task to the amateur homeowner. It is often overlooked due to the fact that the positive results are not immediately seen. When your lawn is fertilized with our nutritious plant food, it will not take long for it to look increasingly verdant. When we apply our mosquito control, their absence will definitely be noticed by you when you are playing with your children in the front or back yard. However, when your lawn is aerated, the first thing you see is small clumps of dirt throughout your lawn. But what follows in the weeks to come is a thickness more beautiful than you had before. Aeration should be done at least once per year. The benefits to us aerating your lawn are numerous. Over time, soil can become compacted due to a combination of factors, particularly rain, gravity, and the compaction may be accelerated if you regularly take part in yard activities. Compact soil makes it more difficult for water and food to get to the root of the grass, which is the entry point to the blades. Aeration drastically reduces soil compaction. The opening of the soil also allows the roots to expand, enabling it to take in more nutrients. You will also notice a difference in your water bill, as you will be able to adequately water your lawn using less water, due to both factors of expanded roots and better absorption. Though it is possible for aeration to be done in the spring, Experigreen Lawn Care recommends that in most cases, it be done in the late summer to early fall. There are two potential hazards that can result from spring aeration. The first is it can damage a pre-emergence layer of weed control treatment. The second problem, which is a consequence of the first, is that opening of the soil at that time can then enable resilient weeds to more easily grow and displace your lawn. Unless your lawn has other conditions that make it a special case, we prefer to do it later in the season to get the best results without the potential issues. Aerating your lawn gives rise to the conditions for its corresponding lawn service of overseeding. The holes that are opened from aeration more easily make room for seeding in any thin spots your lawn may have, as well as spots that have been damaged by insects or weeds that have displaced the area. Our seed is a premium blend that is selectively bred to be more disease and insect resistant. Expergreen Lawn Care is excited to improve the lawns of the Brighton area.
