If you are the type of person that wants to have a lawn immediately, than sod may be the answer. Sod is a roll of grass measuring 10 square feet. The most important factor in considering this application is the amount of sun necessary for it to grow. The best time to install sod is during the spring and fall seasons. You can install sod during warmer conditions however more water is required.
If you install sod in a shady area it will look good for a few weeks and then begin to decline rapidly. The sod must have adequate soil underneath for the roots to grow into. Sometimes soil must be added and/or amended first. You may also decide to trim some lower branches shading the sod in order to maximize growth. A light application of fertilizer along with an insecticide is also recommended.
Shrub & Tree Pruning
Occasional pruning is required for the continued health of most plants and trees, not to mention that it makes yard maintenance that bit easier!
When trees have disease or dead limbs, pruning is necessary to control the spread of disease or pests.
Other factors that make pruning necessary are if they’re damaging the health of other plants by casting a shadow over large areas, or simply if you want the tree to look a bit nicer!
Pruning lets you shape and mold trees to a point, allowing you to enjoy their beauty for longer. Pruning tends to take place when trees are dormant in the winter months, but depending on the urgency of the situation, they pruning can be offered year round.
During the summer, your lawn can become damaged from heat stress and foot traffic. These weakened spots may become thin. In order to combat this type of damage to your lawn, it is important for you to overseed during the fall. The ideal time to overseed your lawn is during the early months of autumn. This is a time when grassy weed pressure is not as high as in spring, so no need for pre-emergent crab grass control (causing desirable grass seed to die alongside the crab grass). Additionally, the ground is still warm but temperatures outdoors begin to cool. Rain in the fall can help new seeds to germinate by moistening them. This is important so that the seeds can take root before the cold, harsh months of winter set in. When winter is over, you’ll enjoy a thicker, healthier lawn.
Scarification is carried out to remove organic matter from around the base of the grass plants and tidy up any straggly lateral growth. In a nutshell, scarification removes material, probably in the form of thatch or moss that will otherwise prevent good dense grass growth. If you do not scarify, debris will build up and lead to other problems. Thatchy and mossy lawns will not be very wear or drought tolerant. Once the space has been created around the base of the grass plants, the trick is to encourage the grass to fill the space.
Mulching is an effective method to reduce and control weed growth in your soil. By covering the soil in mulch the moisture is also retained, improving the fertility of the soil as well as its organic content. This is great for future planting! Our mulching services are an effective means to guard the health of flower beds. This is a very economical choice for protecting the wellbeing of your green space and can help to reduce other maintenance costs.
What does mulching in Connecticut cost? It often depends on the surface area and the difficulty of access for mulch delivery. If you have a property that needs mulching, we can help! Just give us a call or email and we’ll get right back to you!
