Spring/Fall Yard Clean Up is an important task that helps prepare your lawn and garden for the growing season. It involves removing debris such as leaves, branches, and other organic matter that has accumulated over the winter months . This helps to prevent disease and pests from taking hold in your lawn and garden.

Aerating and Overseeding are two important lawn care tasks that can help improve the health and appearance of your lawn. The benefits of core aeration in the clay soils of Northern Virginia is that it reduces thatch and soil compaction while allowing air, water, and fertilizer to penetrate deeper into the soils. This allows for deeper root growth and a denser and stronger turf. . Overseeding involves spreading new grass seed over your existing lawn to help fill in bare spots and improve the overall density of your grass. September through October is the best time to overseed so it’s normally done in conjunction with core aeration. Over seeding helps repair the damage to the turf from heavy use and the hot dry summers.

Top Dressing is ideal for thin and damaged lawns throughout Northern Virginia. Top dressing consists of spreading a high organic compost that is suited to be used for turf areas and then raking it in to even it out. The organic matter conditions the soil and allows for better water and nutrient retention.
