Late Summer focus areas

Spotted Lanternfly Suppression

The adults are here, and flying around! Coming soon to a neighborhood near you. They will be feeding, and laying eggs for next year’s brood.

Monthly treatments should be done now to host trees. Our foliar applications target each life cycle of the SLF.

Treating now will help kill the adults, and any of the instars that have not yet matured, and prevent them from becoming annoying flying adults.           

Core Aeration and Over-seeding

Core aeration is a mechanical process that pulls plugs from your lawn in order to relieve soil compaction, and increase turf root growth.

Removing plugs from the soil allows water, oxygen and nutrients to get to the roots and allows CO2 to escape the soil.

Spot thatching and hand raking will be done where needed. This process helps prepare the soil to aid in seed germination. 

Our aeration machines are run on a double pass, with the second pass on a cross pattern, to ensure maximum coverage.

We also apply Lime at this time to help correct or maintain your soil’s pH. We recommend aerating and over-seeding your lawn every year, depending on weather conditions.

Turf Care

If you are considering Core Aeration/Over-seeding, our Seven-step program will help prepare your lawn prior to having this done.

Having your soil tested will allow us to know what micronutrients your turf needs, which is key if you are renovating your lawn this year.

Flea, Tick and Mosquito Suppression:

We can help you enjoy your property. Applications are done by fogging the perimeter of the property as well as spraying nesting areas.

Plant material around the house will also be treated.

Tree Care

Foliar Applications that include insect and disease control help your plantings during seasonal periods of stress, like heat, drought, or cold.

We are currently treating for insects such as aphids, mites, and caterpillars. Deep root feedings in the spring and fall with a slow release fertilizer add needed nutritional requirements to your landscape plantings.
