    Testimonials

    "I have been a loyal customer of (T&T Landscaping) for 10 years. They show up as promised, efficiently conduct the contracted work, and leave my yard neater than when they arrived. Their high-tech mulch blower saves me days of backbreaking work spreading mulch--with a much better result than I could achieve. Would recommend them to anyone interested in a quality landscaping job."

    Lawn Maintenance

    Our lawn maintenance service includes weekly lawn mowing of your office grounds or home, dethatching (removing dead grass), aerating, and overseeding.

    Dethatching

    Thatch is the layer of living and dead stems, roots, stolons, and rhizomes between the green blades of grass and the soil surface. A thin layer of thatch (less than 1/2 inch thick) can be beneficial to the lawn because it helps to limit weed germination, reduce water evaporation, and protect from frost damage. However, thick thatch layers can prevent water, air, and nutrients from penetrating the soil, causing reduced root growth and increased potential for drought stress. Thatch also favors fungal growth and can harbor insect pests. To dethatch a vertical mower is used to cut through the soil surface and bring the thatch to the surface.

    Aerating

    Aerating is the process of punching small holes all over your lawn to allow water, oxygen, fertilizers, and other nutrients to penetrate the soil and better reach the roots of your grass. When your lawn gets heavily compacted, its roots get deprived of the air they need to survive and grow. Additionally, aerating also allows water and nutrients to better penetrate into the soil and to the grass roots. If you have problems with pooling of water in your lawn, or are on a steep slope of grade, aerating can help to trap the water and absorb it more quickly into the ground.

    One way to perform aerating is to use spikes, but these are not usually very effective because spikes do not remove "plugs" from the ground, they do not create holes in the soil for expansion and in some cases, weed prevention. The most effective type of aerating is with a gas-powered machine called a core aerator that pulls out small cores of grass and soil.

    Overseeding

    Over seeding is the process of planting grass seed directly into an existing yard. After several years, mature grass begins to slow down their reproduction rate. Since a blade of grass lives only an average of 45 to 60 days, production of new tillers must continually outpace the dieback of older leaves. Young grass will produce tillers faster than older grass. Therefore, one of the most important secrets to maintaining a healthy, thick lawn is to make sure your grass is young. (Nick Christians, PhD, Iowa State University) The practice of overseeding lawns is the easiest way of keeping grass young.

    For successful overseeding, it is critical that the seeds be placed in contact with the soil. Seeds scattered on top of live or dead turf with a broadcast spreader rarely produce decent turf. The seeds must contact the soil contact to grows grass.
