It’s time to ring in the new year in Loganville, Georgia with a new lawn care resolution. Make 2022 the best year for your lawn. At Environmental Turf Management, we have been creating perfect lawns in the greater Atlanta area for over twenty years. We offer a wide range of lawn care services that range from weed control to pest control to tree and shrub care. Keep reading to find out more about our services and what you can gain from them.
Weed control is a basic need for every yard if you want your yard to look good. But any homeowner knows that the war on weeds is a never-ending battle. As soon as you pull one, another two pop up in their place. In the fall, weeds deposit their seeds in hopes of infesting your yard in the spring. The seeds lie in wait until spring weather triggers them into germinating.
Because of this, the springtime is the best time to launch a surprise attack on weeds before they even get a chance to take root. Pre-emergent herbicides are weed killers designed to kill the seeds and prevent them from germinating. Applications of pre-emergent must be done early in the spring before your grass starts to green up.
Pests are always causing damage to our Loganville lawns. From moles to fire ants, there is no shortage of animals and pests that want to destroy your yard. Fire ants can cause more than just an eyesore in your yard; they can lead to some pretty painful stings if you or your pets are not careful. At Environmental Turf we offer a wide range of pest control services to make sure your yard and home remain pest-free.
Trees and shrubs are the anchors of our Loganville landscapes. They are the largest and often, the most expensive investment you can make in your yard. Trees and shrubs are meant to be permanent features of your lawn. If taken care of properly, they are meant to outlive us. But there are many factors that can lead to the demise of our beloved ornamentals. I’m talking about pests and diseases. In their natural environment, trees are protected by other trees from being overrun by pests that carry diseases. But when they are transplanted in our yards, they lose that protection from the crowd and are exposed to numerous pests. Sometimes these pests can be too much for the tree. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on your trees and shrubs and make sure that there aren’t a significant amount of insects living on them. Our tree and shrub program will make sure your trees remain healthy and strong all year long.
We love to use our Loganville yards in the summer, after all, that’s why we take care of it all year, right? After years of running, playing, and driving on our grass, this constant impounding takes its toll. The soil becomes packed so tight that it feels hard and can’t be penetrated with a shovel or screw driver. As the soil becomes compacted and more thatch builds up between the soil and grass, it prevents water from sinking in. Instead, you will see water runoff and create a pool in low areas of your yard. Aerating your yard can solve these problems and also make your yard look lush and beautiful in the process. Core aeration is the method of using a machine to pull hundreds of tiny cores out of your yard. These holes allow fertilizers, water, and air back into the soil and help to break apart thatch so roots have room to grow.
After your soil has been aerated, overseeding is often done to rebuild the lushness and strength of your lawn. Soil compaction can severely stress and thin out your grass. This is an open invitation for pests and weeds to take over. Overseeding introduces new grass and grass types in your yard to boost your lawn’s resistance to pests, diseases, and even drought.
